Not entirely sure whats going on there but perhaps you could ride to Arica and cross into Tacna? Visit Sajama National Park on the way, it's really nice!

Miners in Puno
 
BBC today(27 May) said riots in Puno to protest a possible mine above Lake Titicaca.

Maybe this is part of the problem.

Just an update for you guys, I was watching the news during lunch and they said that buses are again traveling from Bolivia into Peru so this would probably mean motorcycles as well of course.

How about security inside Bolivia and Peru? they told me it was far more dangerous than Argentina-Chile.
How is your experience? in a 0-10 scale, how much is the danger riding alone in Bolivia - Peru?
Thanks!!
