Via Brazil Beaches?

Hi, I rode south to Ushuaia last year and left my bike there at the Honda agent. I fly out of the UK on the July 18 to start the return trip. Riding south I did almost no beach time (aged 74, I don't look too great in a swim suit). However I did have a surfeit of mountain passes and fells. The climate being what it is and the bike being light (Honda 125), I will probably truck it to Puerto Natales and take the ferry north to Puerto Montt, then ride north and cross over into Argentina. On the way north I want to follow the coast in Brazil and Venezuela and eat fresh fish and prawns in chilli sauce. Meeting up with fellow bikers would be great. My Blog is at home
Have happy days...

Heya PJ! Howz it going? Was chatting with you about insurance and stuff awhile back. Heading into Canada tomorrow and then over the Wisconsin for the BMWMOA meeting at West Bend next week. Will you be there? After that heading over to Colorado and down into Mexico pronto before my US Visa runs out! So of course stay in touch. Is there maybe a way of getting the blog on the travel section also? wil have to look at that.

Hola Patrick
Sorry, my English is not very good. I prefer write in Spanish and your wife will translate it. Yo leí que ella es de Chile. Cuál será tu ruta desde BA al norte? Pienso salir alrededor del 20 de diciembre desde Junín (Argentina), pasando por Rosario, Resistencia, Asuncion, cruzar Paraguay, Campo grande, Cuyaiba, Porto Velho, Manaos, y Venezuela. Por donde irás vos?
Un saludo..

Sobre el meridiano 60º oeste

Patrick
viajé a Ushuaia en enero del 2006 y me llevó 30 días la ida y vuelta desde Junín. Mi idea para este verano es ir a Venezuela sobre el meridiano 60º (o lo más cercano posible) cruzando el Amazonas y volver por la costa del Pacífico, todo en 60 o 70 días.
He viajado solo y con un amigo. Solo se me hace pesado cuando es durante mucho tiempo. Si podemos acordar sería bueno.
Un saludo...
