Motorcycle Adventure from Argentina to Colombia - May 2009

Fellow adventure riders!

I'm looking for some people to bike with through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Columbia + possible Central America. Im in the process of buying a bike at the moment in Buenos Aires and hope to leave by the start of May.

The idea is to cross Argentina heading towards the Andes then travelling up into Chile and Bolivia and beyond. I am not in any particular hurry once i'm on the road. Only to enjoy the experience, get plenty of practice speaking Spanish and get lost on some great roads.

Ill be riding a kitted out DR650 and will have camping gear. If anyone is interested in meeting up to ride together for part of the trip, post a reply here.

All the best
Owen

I am planning m/l the same trip but will not start until late September. Would be good to follow your trip to get ideas on route to take and problems I might encounter. Are you going to post a Blog on HU or else where.

Bob
