Round trip around South America with my motorcycle: part I.I Venezuela - Gran Sabana



Part I.I Gran Sabana

Author's note: I had the chance to visit Venezuela and go throughout in this country. 4 stories of Venezuela were made at different times and with different bikes.

Hi everybody!
Here are some pictures from my last trip: the Gran Sabana. Done with my new bike Kawasaki KLR, I have not encountered any problems except that damn door baggage which did not resist the slopes and many road holes!

4920 km in 12 days.
