Headed South Through Central and South America

Letting everyone know that I have left and have been on the road for 17 days now. I am in Mexico and enjoying left greatly! I would like to offer my help to anyone trying to do this trip and you can follow me along my trip at Motorcycling The World - Home. I am also interested in meeting up with some riders I will be in Guatemala in about 3 days. Looking forward to hearing from everyone as I have found great help on this site!

Cool to see that you started and are well on your way. Are you selling the bike in South America and flying back?

I plan to sell the bike if I can. Not really sure the best way to do it, so if anyone wants to chime in and give some advice that would be great. The trip has certainlly been a trip so far looking forward to what Guatemala has to offer.
