Hi Haim,

I followed a Mexican riding a Goldwing for about a 100 miles in southern Mexico on my way back from Panama recently. It was fun following a local on the twisty rough backroads in Chiapas. He would weave around the potholes and slam on his brakes and crawl over the speedbumps (topes). You guys will have a blast. 4-6 weeks from NY to Sao Paulo, Brazil is possible I suppose. That's a loooooong ride in such a short timespan.

No need to stick to the PanAm. Your bikes are fully capable of riding the fun twisty mountain roads in Latin America.

Best luck,
John Downs
