In Mexico now heading to South America

Hi All
I am on the road in Mexico at the moment (Puerto Vallerta) on a KLR heading down to Argentina. I will spend the next couple of days on the road to Zipolite (near Puerto Angel) to spend New Year. Would love to meet other riders on the road so let me know.

(I have tried to PM a couple of people but can't due to not enought posts? - stupid)

See you on the road

Baz

Hi Baz, Wish I were there for you. As it stands I am digging out of the snow/ice storm in NYC
Feel good you are on the road.

Hi Baz

You are just ahead of us, a little too far. We are currently in Alamos, and will be between Mazatlan and Durango for Christmas. We might be down at Zipolite for New Year?

Johan

PS: My wife and I are on a BMW GS also on our way to South America.
