Anyone heading to Central America January/February?

Hello All,

I have decided to take 6 months leave and head to Central America from Florida in late January or early February and would like to meet some other riders along the way. Hope to hear from some of you.

Be safe & enjoy the ride!

I will be leaving from the Gainesville area in mid to late January. I hope to meet some other long riders along the way. I have 6 months so I am in no hurry. Just a nice slow ride to enjoy the people and the countryside.

I plan on leaving the Orlando area for CA on or about February 2. No route plan or agenda, will probably go as far as Panama. Ride a KTM 990 and interested in hooking up.

Hey Spartan,
Two of us are going to leave SF area around mid Jan and headed to Belize, Guatemala, Cancun and loop back around Mexico, probably a 6wk round trip.
We don't have an actual dates or path just yet.

Would be great to hook up.
I'm on a KLR, buddy on a Versus.
Bob
