Anyone in Central America?
Currently in Belize and heading down to Panama over the next 2 months. Not seen another bike in the past 2 months. Is anyone else out there and fancies meeting up for a beer and some riding?

In Nicaragua now, sweating my way south. Will be flying to Quito June 1 to meet the missus, when are you planning to get to S.A.? Always fancy a beer.....

Rene Cormier 9 May 2004 04:14

oops. just re-read your plans. That is...IF you are planning to go to S.A....

mattpope 10 May 2004 04:18

Oh yes, I'll be going. Will get to Bogota for the end of June but will have to return to the UK until September. In September I'm back on the road down the west coast.

Anyone up for that as well?

Rene Cormier 20 May 2004 07:24

We plan to be bumbling our way down there for a year, I will keep an eye on here to make sure you return!
cheers, rene

Cheers Rene - look forwrd to that beer wherever and whenever that might be.

Hope to meet up with some other travel bikers in the space of the next year! Am beginning to believe that the site is one big hoax and that the pictures are all made up on photoshop.

Hasta luego!

Yep, it's a hoax... http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ubb/smile.gif

Just for interest, our experience in the pre-internet days:

We rode Mexico and Central America, New Zealand, Aus, then Europe, Africa, and a month in South America before meeting our FIRST (other than ourselves!) long distance biker, 4 months before the end of our rtw tour. Greg Frazier in Rio Gallegos, then a week later 10 or so more in Ushuaia.

There are so few of us that unless you get to the main meeting points at the right time, like Panama, Ushuaia, Goa and a few others, it's easy to miss everyone.

keep us posted and you'll meet someone sooner or later!

It is no hoax. I am just finishing a 4 month ride from Canada to Panama. I´m in Panama City now for a few more days, the bike flys out on Monday night to Montreal. I met riders in San Diego, Baja, Mexico and Guatemala. I rode with one other rider through El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua and most people I met had visited the website. We´re out there, see you on the road.

Rene Cormier 24 May 2004 05:01

Moflow, I plan to be in Panama City Monday May 24 evening. Fancy a beer? Sorry, mattpope, you will have to catch up!

Doh! Does nobody like the rainy season on something? Wet roads, wet clothing, wet everything. Think about the savings on the tyre wear.

Hope it was not too wet down south. Still reckon it's a hoax!

Oh - you have NO idea! 7 hours in the driving rain from San Jose to Golfito, over the Pass of the Dead (3352m). Third gear, mountain passes and rain make a nasty combo. Its sunny today, making a break for Panama. Cheers.

Go slow, be well.
