Lots of moto mechanics in every backwoods village in SA. Oh, and they are necessarily good at bodging stuff together or making other parts fit to get you by until you get the real thing. So, unless you are going way off the beaten trail or don't want anyone to touch your baby...anything that can't be fixed with a basic tool kit can be taken to these guys (I would carry a decent kit, but not at the expense of leaving a comfort item behind...).
I've broke down more than once and there will always be a truck, who will haul you for a pittance, and a place to work/store the bike, etc. people are helpful and are wages are low so its not like here, where you need a small loan to call a wrecker if you haven't bought a plan.
One time in Colombia...I rear-ended a jeep that slammed on its brakes for a speed bump. Bent the rim, spokes and forks of my XL-125. House under construction with locking gate allowed me to work on and store my bike. Removed the wheel and hitched a ride with the guy I hit to the next city. Found a rim but no-joy on the spokes. Couch surfed while straightening spokes and re-lacing the wheel. Not perfect, but got me to my destination where I got it fixed properly.
