Sloths and Mon-Coons.

Hi all,

I haven't posted in a while, Tony has a way better camera and takes way more pictures that me, so it is probly best that he posts more....besides, all my pictures of my bike anyway and about how great it is, and how great I am, and who the hell wants to hear about that...
It has been a busy few days, with border crossings and heavy mielage days, but I manages to get a few pics.
These are from Costa Rica:
This thing looks like a cross betweena monkey and a racoon. I will call it a mon-coon.
Here, we have a mon-coon and Silver, with the Arenal Volcano in the background.
Not sure if this was a joke or not, but it is a sloth crossing. There was a sloth zoo, interpretive center, rescue center etc, so if it was a joke, they have taken it pretty far. Far as I can tell, a sloth is like a seal with claws.
I have uploaded a few new videos aswell. They are not that exciting, more moto-porn than anything, but it gives a glimpse of what we are doing down here. I have a video of the rickety bridge crossing, I will get that up a soon as possible.


  1. Sidenote on Sloths: I wrote a paper in my undergrad Mammology course on Sloths. Particularly those in Costa Rica and thier unique ability as excellent swimmers. If you're ever interested...



  2. don't sloths fly around a camp's porch light at night? kool pics. Is that volvano real?
