Peggy, our US agent is also here, and even Werner (founder and owner of Edelweiss) will join the group with a ride from San Francisco.

When everyone thought that Werner and his two riding buddies could not make it on time for the dinner after the long ride (apparently they decided to go from San Francisco to here passing trough Patagonia... just kidding) Werner Wachter joins the group!

The first thing that happened at the end of section 2 is that Werner Wachter, founder and owner of Edelweiss Bike Travel, turned Latino. Many people did not believe it but he did it anyway.

In 2005 a fellow player from his Squash club approached him with a job offer: Werner, founder and owner of Edelweiss, was looking for somebody to reinforce his marketing and sales department, so Rainer swapped the big toys for the small toys that we all love so much: motorcycles.

...
Two years later Werner started planning his tour around the world and paving the road to retirement. He appointed Rainer as General Manager, knowing very well that Swabians are better suited than anybody else when it comes to keeping the money in one place... Surrounded by motorcycle addicts Rainer was infected quickly and acquired his licence. He likes any kind of bike, as long as it suits the purpose of the trip, he even uses a push-bike sometimes to ride to work. Exercising out in the open air is one of his favourite pastimes, but he also likes to travel and to experience foreign cultures. His favourite destination is always the next one, he says, but his heart beats especially strong for Africa.

Founder & Owner
Werner was 35 years old when he decided that he didn't want to spend the rest of his life dealing with medical equipment. So in 1980 he and his wife Coral founded Europe's first motorcycle tour operator, gave it a catchy name, arranged a small fleet of BMWs and a year later they welcomed the first five paying customers in the Alps. This sounds like it was all very easy, but you can rest assured, it was not.
According to himself Werner never was a particularly able tour guide, but he must have done ok, because where would all that success of his company come from?
...
30 years later Werner started thinking about retirement. But of course a man like him wouldn't just quit and go home, instead he took the long way round. He worked for two years to set up a nine month tour around the world, the longest guided tour that had ever been done. He was to be part of it, of course, and after he returned home in July 2011, after 64,000 km on his bright orange BMW, he didn't go back to the office anymore. Well, once in a while he does. For a coffee... Enjoy your time off, Werner!
...
Werner offered him a job as workshop assistant, and José seized the opportunity.
