Hey Bryan, how are you?
If you have just 3 months to ride this far I would recommend you to avoid the "Venezuela-Manaus-Belem" route. Using this route you will need to get a boat between Manaus and Belem, and this boat trip usually takes a week of traveling down river. Using the Interoceanic Highway will probably be much faster that the route in northern Brazil, just get in the road in Peru, ride through Cusco and the Altiplano and after you reach Brazil, keep riding on the BR-364 until you reach Goias state, then you can ride through Minas Gerais and arrive in Rio using one of the most beautiful roads in Brazil (IMHO), the road between Juiz de Fora and Rio.
About the communication problems, don't worry about that in Brazil, most of the people here are very helpfull to foreigners and will be very welcoming to you even if you try to speak Spanish to everyone.
If you drive by Uberlandia, in Minas Gerais state, drop me a line or send me a PM so I will be able to help you and host you in my house and have some drinks
marcod, you are invited too if you want.

You don't need to have a big bike to have a great adventure.
