"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower; Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour." William Blake

SuzukiSuzukiWent I met Sri in Tikal he said that he had taken his Suzuki V-strom into the Suzuki dealership in Guatemala City and they had done an excellent job. So seeing as how my bike had yet to see a Suzuki dealership and I had just hit 14,000 miles I decided to drop it in for a check up.

Even though I had emailed Juan the service manager when I tried to drive the bike up to the service centre they questioned whether my bike was a Suzuki (as they don’t sell this model here) and when I finally met Juan he said that when he first got my email he thought it was a prank as a female couldn’t possibly doing this trip solo.

SuzukiSuzukiTurns out to be just as well I had it serviced as I had almost no back brakes though for the cost of buying them in Guatemala it would have been worthwhile carrying spares.

When I picked up the bike the next day I received a Suzuki t-shirt, cap and water bottle as well as a discount. Thanks to Juan and his team.
