From your comments that I received it seems like you are rooting for us to have easier travels. So to help you in this regard we will take a couple of layover days here on the beach!  Thank you all for your suggestion.  Since we have the time we are getting Jene's pannier repaired at a mechanic shop in David.  Elain and her friend Jim brought it in for Jene and arraigned the repair. Very nice of them to run to the city and let Jene hold down the couch and me the pool side lounge.  This is a very nice place, beach and resort.  A great place to recover.  We will pick up the pannier on Wed, hopefully on our way out to Panama City. 

I borrowed Elain's boogie board and played for about a hour.  Showered and laid by the pool. Then came in an ripped off the center stand on the bike.  It should give me about 2" more travel now and be much safer.   I called all around trying to find a stock rear suspension link so I can get more lift on the bike.  Have a few leads but I give it about a 15% chance of success.  We will see. 

Haven't been in touch with our Canadian friend as the phone system in Panama is tightly controlled and it is difficult to call CR.  Hopefully the email system will work.  We get one a day from them.  Didn't find out if they were successful in getting their bikes out today, maybe Manyana.

Well time for me to hold down the couch!
