Wisconsin to Guatamala Memorial Day

A friend and I are planning a run for the borders Memorial Day weekend (extended). We plan on leaving on Wednesday May 20th and be back the following Tuesday or Wednesday. I am on a R1200GS he is on a Suzuki Bandit. we plan on a river crossing into Guatemala, camping on the beach and hopefully some Myan temples for the highlights.

It is all dependent on the roads which we know nothing about and this is our first trip south so we are not planning too much and will just play it by ear as we move south.

I have many long trips under my belt as does he but this one the the first big boarder crossing (Canada not being counted...) I can let you know how we faired and which route we took.

I'll be heading in a similar direction around the same time, look for a 1986 BMW R65 with Australian plates.

I'm in the midwest as well....

I am very interested in doing a trip down to Guatemala... I am without a bike right now.. but that will hopefully change soon...

Got my eyes on either an XT 250 or an Ascot 500.... need some $$$ to get things together..
