Toronto HU meeting then off to South America - any takers

i'm going to the HU meeting in NC sept 7-9, then to the HU meeting in Toronto sept 20-23 and from there heading south

my plan is to store my bike in Uruguay in March, so i'm in no rush, hooking up thru Mexico and Cent. America would be good, i did it last year heading north, getting bored so heading back south

any questions send me a PM

Wrong timing

Hi, I am in Wisconsin and intend to take my 1500 goldwing to South America - Probably Lima Peru and leave it for winter touring. Might be able to get away in late September but intend to just leisurely (3 weeks) get it down there. I do however have numerous questions since you have done it before. I am not good at working these blog sites, but do well with e-mail. tom@markentpersonnel.com

Your idea of leisurely and mine differ greatly, Tom.

Have a safe ride.
