Hey mate, I'm from Sydney Australia, looking for someone to do the same journey. Will be flying into LA on the 26 May to buy a bike and hopefully start riding down south ASAP if you can wait. I am 28 and have riding experience in all disciplines dirt and road. Other hobbies include surfing and moutainbiking.
I quit my job so now the journey begins. I am 28, pretty easy going bloke looking for adventure.
I plan to buy a KLR650 or V-storm in LA upon arrival.
Would be great to have some company as riding as a solo would be more difficult.
let me know your thoughts on meeting in the states for this journey.
my email address is email@example.com and I am also on facebook under this address if you wish to add me as a friend.
I plan to be in Washington state by noon on the 23rd and will take a leisurely 3 or 4 days to make my way down to Rob's place in San Diego, where I will do a quick oil change and swap on some new tires before being ready to head out... Would welcome another rider (even if you are an Aussie :P hahah) to the group, this is sounding like fun!
Sounds like a blast, just want to confirm dates, are you looking at leaving from San Diego 28 May or April??
April I will have to push it to get over by then...considering its already 18th April.
Budget for a bike is around 6k with all the touring gear...So that KLR and V-storm looks pretty awesome. If you're leaving on the 28th May, will be over around the 18th or so before to buy a bike and set up ready for touring.
Rob, unbelievable that you have contacts in Panama, that seems like one of the more difficult parts of the trip, in finding a reliable boat that takes motorbikes over to Columbia...
Totally looking forward to the ride, hope the dates are right.
Dave blew up his engine a few days ago, not having much luck sourcing a replacement... Rob and I may continue on without him aswe have a limited timeframe in which to complete this trip... Anyone in the area?!
I'm in San Cristobal De Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico right now. I'm on the way back from my solo Victoria, BC to Yaviza, Panama to Victoria, BC trip. I'll be sticking to central Mexico on the way back since I came down mostly along the Pacific Coast. I have no set itinerary but do plan on heading into Oaxaca next. If your route happens to intersect mine, do let me know and maybe we can sit down for a Victoria and a chat.
well my motor blew up, but will be ready to go down south in a few weeks if anyone wants to join for a trip down south. Hopefully i get the manufacturer warrantly let me know if you would like an Australian travl parter happy to go on any journey!! Will be waiting in San diego
I'm hitting the road on May 14th and heading toward Mexico from WI. I'll be going down the Gulf side with some excursions inland to Mexico city and such. Then ill be headed back up the Pacific side in a month or so.
Maybe I'll run into you guys along the way. Feel free to send me a message sometime and maybe our path's will cross. Here's my blog, which will usually have a general location of where i'm at. travelbymoto
I have recently left San Diego and am in Playa del Carmen, south of Cancun.
I´ll be here in Mexico for at least a month more, after which I am heading south through Central America with Argentina as the ultimate goal.
I´m riding a 2008 Suzuki DL650 and am equipped with basic tools and moderate Spanish!
I have no solid plans or timeframe, other than riding free as a bird, and if there are no objections to another Aussie joining what seems to be quite a crew, I´d love to tag along!
