My friend and I do one of the routes from Lima to Cusco again. We took Panamericana Sur from Lima to Nasca (first day), then Nasca to Chalhuanca (second day) and finally Chalhuanca to Cusco (on the third day). The road were in perfect conditions and we saw some motorcycle riders in the route. Perfect weather and little traffic most of the time. My friend Carlos was testing his new Ducatti MultiStrada, nice and very powerful machine but I don't know... I think it may need a new exhaust system for smoother feeling. As we have work to do there in Lima, the motos returned in a truck and we in an airplane (just one hour flight).
We didn't reach Machu Picchu this time because there's no way to go there in a motorcycle, and the Inca Road is just for pedestrians. Hopefully my pictures can show to you, at least some of what my Versys and I see and felt on this trip. I hope some of you can come here and do this wonderful ride.
Well... I like the Versys very much, it's a little taller and feels smoother... but the power of the Multistrada in incredible... really, and it also has nice stuff included like the different maps, heated grips, etc. But I think you can do more things with the Versys... Maybe if I have to choose another motorcycle I would choose the Tiger XC or the BMW 800... I don't have the funds to buy a Multistrada.
