After staying three nights in Panama City and having time to explore this very modern city and the slums nearby, it was finally time to get to Puerto Carti and the Stahlratte to get across the Darien Gap. We headed out of Panama City to Puerto Carti at about 6.30am and was again greeted with the Panama City persistent rain.
After staying one road soaked night in David, Panama, it was time to get to Panama City, which would be my final major city in Central America. My front tire on my KTM 1290 Super Adventure was now leaking at about 15 PSI per hour, not good and I was also running low on coolant.
My second day of riding took me from Tarpon Springs Florida to laguna beach, Florida and over 346 miles (557 kilometres) and a long 9 hour riding day. Still, the camera was not fixed (I hadn’t had a chance to see footage yet) and still I had a huge load on my bike.
