Well, I should be going there about the same time. I plan on crossing into Mexico late-mid September, through New Mexico and going south through mainland MX towards Guat. and points beyond, so I might be just ever so slightly behind you on a DR650.

hi paul,

good to know indeed that you are on the same voyage. don't know who the other two are both we will found out in a few months or perhaps even earlier. I will be in Guate too, sounds like a HUBB (mini) meeting!?

I will be riding a dr650 (too) but still in the phase of search and rescue.

i haven't decided where in Guate where i'll do language school, i'm thinking Antigua, interesting town and lots close by to go and do daily rides, my timeframe at school will be determined by my leaving date and how quick/ slow i go thru mexico, so i figure on 2-4 weeks in school

Ludwig said he will email contact details for the other riders closer to the time.

having went thru the borders last years in CA they are a pain in the a$$, much better with two guys as they send you to different building and far away from your bike...just for security mainly

let me know if you need garmin maps for cent. and s. america i have them all, some of them are routable to a certain extent, good to have if you use GPS

Sent you a PM about those maps. And I just met a KLR rider that spent 5 months in Antigua at one of the schools and had nothing but excellent things to say about it. Including the low cost.

Mexico/Guatemala Oct-Nov?

Like others, i'll be heading to Mexico this fall. I currently live on the panhandle of Florida and will enter Mexico at one of the Texas boarder crossings. Haven't picked a firm date yet. And, like many of you, i plan to spend some time in Guatemala learning Spanish. Maybe a couple months. Then head further south. I'll be traveling solo so if i could hook up with any of you for part of the trip it would be cool.

tnx for the offer for the maps, i'm good (i think). friend of mine got free maps of latin america. even if you would send them to me, i'm a digibetic.

good idea to cross some borders together, for the reason of safety and fun. and in general: the more the merrier.

border crossing first week of september

Hello,

i travel from Alaska to Argentina and will cross the border to Mexiko first week of september. Either in Tijuana or Tecate - not sure yet. Does anyone here planning border crossing at the same time? Would be nice to ride together for a couple of days. I will ride the baja, then take the ferry to mazatlan.

Cheers, Matt (from Germany)

Matt,

Looks like you are going to be about two weeks ahead of me and heading to the wrong part of MX, but depending on your speed, I might be in Central MX about the time you cross over from Mazatlan. Keep a look out for a DR650 from Colorado.

Going through Mexico Nov. 1st

Hey everyone-
Great to see so many heading south. I'll be leaving San Francisco around the 1st of November for SA, wouldn't mind some company through Mexico. I'm open to traveling Mainland or Baja...
I'll be cruising on an F800GS with dirt tires.

Blog to come...
til then- Bill Beckwith
