New York-Buenos Aires, october 2010

It is time to start preparing my third American leg. I will leave New York on a R1200 GS by 22 october heading South America. I have 4 months to arrive to Buenos Aires.

Normally I ride alone, but if someone is going on the same way and do not speak Spanish, I offer my self as a language teacher. You´d better know how to pay bribes and ask for mercy when being robbed.

A proper knowledge of Spanish language may be useful.

Salary demanded: two litres of good every night.

Back to America

Hi Miquel-Silvestre,

I think I can afford two s a night ... at least if one doesn't have pay before one crosses the Mexican border!

Anyway, I'm planning to ride my GS from Vancouver to Buenos Aires (Oct'10 - Jan'11) and wouldn't mind too much not to ride the whole tour on my own. So maybe we could meet at some point...

cheers
Marcus

PS: I'm German, but I guess this language is not too useful in the Americas ;-)

Hi Hawkeye42.

Maybe in Chile there are some who speak German. I don't but I really love german .

I love also to ride alone because nobody argue about who has to pay the , but, anyway, could be nice to meet you on the way. We'll keep in touch.

Take care.

Ahoy Miquel!

Miquel! I See you have a new plan ahead of you! Depending on when you arrive at the Mexican border. I could be ready to rock and roll. I'll be riding my 2006 Suzuki DR650 by that time.

Keep us all posted. If you haven't ridden with Miquel, do yourself a favor, buy him those 2 liters of , or a bottle of , and you'll have an awesome time of it.
