Now that we have the bikes and we got a sense of what a nice city Bogota is we are ready for our adventure. However we recently found out that from Bogota to Cali takes between 8 to 10 hours, we were hoping for 8 .We left the hotel parking which had a car elevator to get you to and from the garage. and headed west out of Bogota into morning rush hour traffic which in retrospect isn't that bad since the road to Cali is mostly mountain roads that zigzag across riding in one lane with trucks all along the route.
It was try at first and then started to rain heavily so we stopped to put the jackets on also the road was closed for a while due to an accident and by the time we got through Hussain started to have trouble with his clutch. So we stopped for a while to let the bikes cool down and pray.We continued on and reached Cali 10 hours later around sunset.
