Well, after all the trouble to register my bike in Barra, and spending 10 days non stop online (Detran website) to make another booking to do just that, I got to Catete on a rainy day, with the Kwak.
it took 2 hours of waiting, but when I finally handed over all my docs, including the passport translation, the attendant gave it back to me saying it was not necessary. What a surprise!
Anyhow, the bike was finally registered! Perfect. We were able to go for a test ride to Petropolis, but most importantly, we can go to our 1st Brazilian bikers meeting, organised in Penedo:
3o Encontro Internacional de Motocyclistas, in Penedo:
It's at the end of next week. I can't wait.
And for those on the know, the best Motorcycle Museum is in Visconde de Maua: amazing collection of bikes!
