Thumbs up From Colorado To Sa. Mid Sept.

Well, here another Rider dreaming about heading south,
looking for buddies to join this adventure.
I am 31 years old
Easy going, fun to be around (they said)
speak both languages, English an Spanish fluently, been riding for 15 years all kinds of bikes in different countries but never crossed frontiers...

I have a sport touring motorcycle ready for the trip...I know SportTouring...

I'm pretty much open to go anywhere and don't have a set route, my schedule is very flexible...
Want to start this trip by the second week of Sept.
I'm in Denver Colorado right now, and planing to enter mexico from el paso or laredo, really don't matter...
I'm originally from Colombia so once there, i know my way around and even i can provide with accommodations.

Anyway, is there any rider out there to share this tour with ?

You can contact me at fernandoaduran 'AT' yahoo 'DOT' com

Thanks and best regards.

I'm right behind you

I too, am about ready to get under way. I hope to leave Chicago, solo on a KLR on Sept 15 and cross at Brownsville the morning of the 18th if all goes well. I'll be hugging the gulf coast down to Guatemala and heading for Panama through some of the smaller more obscure borders.

I am very interested in sharing the border crossings with another rider.

I am on a time frame however, my wife and kids need me back by Christmas, and my goal is Ushuaia, so I'll be moving.

By the way, for ten years I tore up the twisties all over Colorado on my '77 BMW R100RS while living in Evergreen, CO. Great memories, no doubt.

Let me know.
