Why take a motorcycle tour in Colombia?

The trips are mostly paved (probably around 90%) but there are some dirt and gravel sections. If you want to do a more off road type trip just let me know, Colombia is full of all sorts of cool backroads.
What are the off-road sections like?
The off-road sections aren’t going to be hard at all. Most people who come down want get up reasonably early, ride for 4-5 hours a day (one or two hours longer if necessary) and then stop for a good lunch + beers and then hang out wherever they are after that.
