New member from Chile, South America
« on: Sep 06, 2017, 23:06:05 »
Hi! my name is Diego, i'm 28 years old and i'm from Chile.
I have two bikes: a 2010 DR650 and a 2011 GN125H, both Suzuki's.
I'm changing careers right now and i'm willing to become a builder in the future. my first steps were learning some mechanics, electronics and in a few weeks, i'll start learning welding at an A.W.S. recognized institute.
Thanks in advance for your kind help and i'll be looking forward for your advices on my steps to becom a welder.
Best regards!

Welcome Diego!  Always good to have members from South America, and congrats on starting a new career.

You'll have to share some photos of your bikes.  I have a KLR650 myself.  A lot of us got together in the spring and rode dual-sports in Kentucky.  There were at least one or two DR650's there.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Well, this are my bikes. I had a Honda XR250R from '92 but sold to an uncle.

Pics are from around town. i live on the Santiagos's countryside (65 k. aprox.).

This pictures were made on trip i took to Carretera Austral on last April. Most epic experience of my life, and did it solo. If you have time and resources, you should really do this travel. You start from Puerto Montt, Chile. Then go south to Lago General Carrera, then go East to Argentina, take Ruta 40 Ushuaia and there you are, at the end of the world. Most breathtaking landscapes of the world (if you are green scenery liking kind of dude).
