I was initially planning to ride from San Francisco to Usuaia solo (I still love the idea) knowing that no one will stick with me through all the back roads and detours that I'll be taking but then I figure that it would be nice to have some company at least some of the time so here is my shot:
I'm leaving from San Francisco to Ushuaia via Baja starting the 17th or 18th of august (Next week!!) so if anyone is interested in joining me I'd be more than happy. I speak fluently Spanish and Portugues so mingling with the locals is second nature to me. I'm riding La Negrita (a tricked out BMW g 650 XC (previously owned a 1200 gs but I'm convinced that a 650 or the fabled f 800gs is the way to go)). All those crazy stories of danger in the roads don't scare me a bit but yes (its not my 1st time), I am coutious about any sign of danger. I'm a fan on doing things the cheap way but I do know that sooner or later I will have to cough up some doe to stay in some hostel for the sake of security, So if anyone is interested give me a shout.
I'm planning a two year trip (back and forth) so I have no hurry. My only time table is the rainy season in central and northern SA. I'm planning to spend a month or so in the Yucatan peninsula including Guatemala and Honduras visiting as many Mayan sites as possible so I should definitely be in Panama by September. I'll keep you posted as of my schedule. Are you planning to travel to Colombia by sea? That seems to be the most logical way.
Yo tambien hablo Espanioｌ (soy de Puerto Rico). Sounds like I might be in Colombia some time when you are planning to depart. The back roads are the way to go. I'm not a fan of highways or big cities and I'm into camping as I go.
Where in Colombia are you from or where in Colombia are you right now? I'm planning a couple of stops in Colombia to meet some friends and the likes. What is your planned route?
Yo vivo en Calgary, Canada. LLegaré a Medellín el 11 de Octubre y creo poder partir entre el 15 y el 20 con parada en Cali donde mi hijo.
Antes de partir quiero ir a Santa Fé de Antioquia ( en moto, por supuesto, están invitados) a visitar el Puente de Occidente (colgante) que hace muchos años no lo veo y lo quiero comparar con otros que me encuentre en el Sur.
De paso para Cali pararé en Manizales para subir al Nevado del Ruiz y ensayar la moto a 4.000 metros por si es necesario hacer algún ajuste en Cali.
