South America - Aug 2011 until Apr 2012

My wife and me are planning to travel through South America.
We will start around August 2011 and will most likely be on the road for 8-10 months. We are two, but one bike only.
Rough planning is to start from Ecuador, slowly ride down to tierra fuego, and then spend some time in northern argentina and south brazil.
But we are pretty flexible.

Would be nice to find bikers with similar plans and meet somewhen, somewhere in South America. Michael.

HI Michael: My wife and I are heading to Europe in June 2011. The bike will be shipped into Heildleberg, Germany. Maybe we will come across you there. My wife and I, two up, did Mexico, Central America, and Colombia, SA, in 2009-2010. We still want to do the same area you intend to do. There is a possiblity, and at my age anything can happen, that we would ship the bike from Europe to South America. Good Luck.
