Hey Noah,

I'm heading from Alaska all the way's south starting August some time. We most likely will be entering Mexico around the same time. I'm spending at lease 6 months in the America's before Africa. Drop me a line if you fancy meeting up some place.

What a start to the trip and a great idea. The only downfall is the costly boat trip across to the mainland.

I did Baja this Feb and the place is amazing. Would have no issues doing it again. I'll have to talk to my friends who "may" be doing the race this year. Would open the opportunity for me to get my bike down there, help with the race, and then take off from there.

I'm going to look into this.

Texas to Tiera del Fuego

Hi Noah and others,

I'm heading south in early September from Austin, Texas. I'm 44, fit, experienced traveler in Latin America, speak Spanish and riding a DR650. I'm interested in riding with like minded folks for some or all the way. I have a plan, but not an itenerary. The plan is to take my time. If anyone is heading the same way about the same time, I'd be interested in talking.

I've started a website that has my loose plan and gear list. I'd love to hear your feedback on the packing list. THE ADVENTURE BEGINS.

Troy

Greetings-I am headed south from Texas in the next few weeks, I hope to ride to Panama at least. I have a BMW F650GS. It would be nice to ride through Mexico with others, I would consider doing the Baja to accomodate somebody else's trip. I want to explore most of the countries in Central America. tsnrefc@yahoo.com

Noah,
My plan is to go to the rally in Mexico then south to Chile. I would like to find someone to travel with at least part of the way. My timing is close to yours.
Let me know yours and others thoughts.

Plans are to go to Chile through Brownsville, TX

I have a tentative route worked down the east coast of Mexico and then crossing west through Guatemala and taking the west coast to Chile. I am still planning and organizing. I would like to make it to the equinox at Chichen Itza September 21-22, 2011. If you are interested in possibly meeting up sometime let me know.

sounds like something id like to discuss...right now I just an xt600 tenere that runs strong and is easy to work on. I didn't want to bring a fully loaded 1150 GS and deal with all the weight and service issues. Please feel free to PM me and see if we can come up with a day ride to two around these parts..
