I am still thinking about a late September start from Colorado and seeing how far south I go. I might end up spending more time in Colombia.

I can only start from SF end of Oct. Stahlratte.de looks attractive but it is also high price. Is there any other cheaper way of getting accross to Columbia?

Still planning to land in July, buy and ride south. Not found a bike yet so probably starting in California.

How long in advance do I have to make a reservation for the Stahlratte??

Hi Franki,

Leaving Sept 1st.......tentatively booked on the Stahlratte for Nov 17th need to confirm in July when I get back from Alaska.....
I don't think you can get a better deal than the Stahlratte which is a mini holiday in itself.....to fly your bike with Girag out of Panama you are looking at around 800. plus your own passage and a lot of paper work hassle at both departure and destination. The Stahlratte is 900. which covers 4 days of accommodation and meals, as well as; a stop at the San Blas Islands.
Keep in touch.....I have started a Blog which can be googled at.....

Currently in Cancun... heading south

Hi,

I have travelled down from Vancouver late Feb, I wouldn't mind meeting up with some other riders in Antigua, Guatemala... I should be there in a few days.

Plan is that I have no real plan. I want to get to panama city, then decide to either go to Cuba, or continue to South America.

Thought I'd kick this thread back up to see if everybody is still around and how plans are going. Have had all my vaccinations done and have the bike almost ready to go. After all this time planning it's amazing how disorganized I still am

Cheers Philip
