Chicago to South America

Hello, just thought I post this now, Leaving early november, taking 6 months off on my way south if my money and bike can last. Hoping to meet some other riders along the way, on a budget, camping, taking it easy, beach life, and whatever comes my way. Bmw 1150, if anyone is interested in riding together, part way the whole way, whatever, let me know. Have traveling and riding experience, but new to mixing those two together. Good luck to all out there and peace.

I am leaving west coast of Canada (Vancouver) mid October to Panama. Would like to spend a bit of time in South US on the way. Never been there. Not even sure what to go see. Love the outdoors. I plan to camp as much as possible and travel fairly slow. I have set aside 6 months for Vancouver - Panama and back. Would be happy to meet anyone on the road.

Hola

Hi ya,
I'm leaving from Miami in mid November, following the Gulf coast around and down into Mexico and then South for the next 12 months and I would be delighted to share a few miles with you and maybe a few s too!
I have travelled all over Europe with my mates on our annual road trips but this one I'm tackling on my own and would appreciate any company on the way,
Aaron

Buying a bike and should be ready to cross the country and head south in the end of October!

Would love to meet up with some of you guys!

Pretty well experienced traveller with more than 40 countries visited to far, but never long distance on motorbike!

Cheers, Patrick

Hi,
I created a group in facebook where all riders planning on crossing South America can log to get in touch one with the other: Might be easier to keep in touch
http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/group.php?gid=153425721342054&ref=mf

I will be on the road starting in December...

Riding South too

Hey everyone,

I'm leaving from Calgary, Alberta as near to the beginning of November as possible. I'd love to meet other bikers. I will rippin' through the states and will be heading straight for the copper canyon. Creel would be a great place to meet other bikers.

Also hostel shalom in puerto escondido. Also san cristobal de las casas. There are good hostels there too.

I'll monitor this thread for people's progress.

Happy trails!

TDF bound part II.

Mike
