Besides being bilingual, Chris is a transplanted Michigander, who misses home but not the cold winters that he traded in for the warm temperatures of his adoptive home. A social worker by trade, Chris became caught up in the dual-sport motorcycle scene and hasn't looked back since. Besides Bolivia, he has also toured in Mexico and Central America. When he isn't doing bike maintenance or installing a new mod, he's probably out riding or at least wishing that he was.
Rebeca is also bilingual as she was born and raised in Bolivia. Though her parents came down from the States to Bolivia in the 70's as volunteers, (and then just decided to stick around), it's Bolivia that she calls home and the latin culture that she most identifies with. Bolivia is where she loves to be, you'll know it the instant you meet her.
Hernan has been a close friend of the family practically since the day he was born. As the support truck driver he plays an integral part in the success of our tours. Though his English is limited his personality and sense of humor more than makes up for it, he's always a favorite with our guests.
Matias and Marcos came along in 2009 and 2011. When they're not in school or recovering from their latest injuries, they like to spend their time outdoors, some of their preferred activities include; riding bikes and motorcycles, swimming in nearby rivers and playing with friends.
