General Route Planning tip re:Lonely Planet
I am starting my fist Adv Ride from Lima Peru, leaving the first week of April 2008, on a pair of KLR's with another friend from the US. We have 2 and a half months to get back to SF. This is my first foray into riding in South America (125 cc stuff in India and turkey). My general guide for routes in the LP South and Central America.
Here is my question: The LP give bus times for each city in their Getting there and Away section. Are these bus times a close approximation for riding times?
For example: Lima to Huaraz is listed as a 7.5 hr bus ride. Would this be a reasonable distance to cover in 1 day on my KLR. My questions assumes there are no major stops in between for sight seeing.
Thanks for your help and I hope to see some of you on the road!
