I have a luxury problem...
We (my girlfriend and myself, both driving Africa Twins) planned to leave from Europe to Siberia, and planned to leave the 11th of March 2011 from The Netherlands.
My employer stated 'it is stupid to do that, as I can ship my bike for free to Canada in one of their containers'... wow! Nice idea.
I know the 11th of March (still our start date, as we are homeless already and both unemployed from the 1st of March) is a bit chilly in Canada, but I have a proper backup plan for this. The whole shipment seems to be arranged, as is the insurance for both bikes. (500 US per foreign registered bike, 6 months. is that okay?)
What about rainy seasons, I read a lot of difference in opinions as always. (not as much as about tyres ;-))
Our idea was to spend about two months in US/CAN, and then cross the border to Mexico. Two months Mexico, and then further down. This would mean we leave Mexico end of July or something, which means we travel through Central America in the peak rainy season?
The other plan is to stay 4-5 months in N-A, but I just think further south is more interesting and affordable. (have travelled the USA some years ago already)
What is your experience with the rainy season? Is it hardcore terrible, hard to drive on Michelin Anakees? Or is it just raining some days and not too busy with tourists these months ;-) ?
Looking forward to your replies!
