The current plan is to make this an ANNUAL event, last weekend in March, so if you can't make it this year, get it on your calendar for 2014.
Sounds like a fun time! I spent a few weeks in Iguassu last year and had a great time at the hostal. Its a lovely area and there is a very strong biking community in Iguassu. Rod, the organizer has extensive contacts in the area and he and his friends are very hospitable.
I'd love to participate but unfortunately, due professional reasons, this year I will not be able to attend the meeting. If this event become an annual event, in 2014 I will do everything in my power to be present.
I´ve already confirmed about 15 bikers, most of them brazilians from cities around and still some overlanders about to confirm.
I know it was a short period of advertising but be sure that everyone that comes will have a good time.
Would like to say thank's to everyone who made this meeting happen, it was a very pleasant weekend, I believe everyone involved had a lot of fun.
The tour to the ITAIPU Dam was definetly one of the best things we did and I'm sure everyone enjoyed the dinner on Saturday night.
Woud like to say an special thank's to Raul, Hugo, David, George, Iacek, Harry, Mario and Rodrigo, incredible guys, Raul driving the guys around, Hugo always cooking amazing dishes and the other who helped a lot before, during and after the meeting, just can't thank you enough guys!!!
I'm posting some pics and would like to see some from the others, specially those with Harry and his loved Betty.

The Iguassu Motorcycle Travellers Hostel has been fun, affordable and rich in terms of getting your help with mechanics for my bike Batty, but also heard you helping others with insurance, re-registering bikes, buying and selling, and all that good stuff, so the service went well beyond the beds...
