Travelling from Mexico to Belize and Guatemala

Hello fellow motorcyclist comrades,

We are two deranged mororcyclists touring around Mexico, from England via the US. We are heading further south towards Belize and Guatemala, maybe further. Our planned route is very relaxed ie. we don't have one. Planning is something we lack.

Currently, we are in the Yucatan region. If there are any bikers in the area, we could meet up, exchange experiences, horror stories etc. Just drop us a line.

We would prefer to travel with a group thugh some of the more dodgy countries (cheaper too, Its usually easier to do deals on accomidation if you need a few rooms). Email us if you would like to meet up somewhere

Hi all,

Currently in Mexico until the start of Feb, then travelling though Central America. Looks like you will all be ahead of me, but keep in touch & maybe meet on the road soon.

Feliz Navidad all!

- my god rich, you are making good time!

Brian

Hi all the brits (and everybody else really)

I{m in Palenque right now, planning to cross into Guatamala on 30th, not at Tapachula, but slightly further north at Cuidad something or other (sorry left the guide book back at the hotel, but its the end of Route 190 past Comitan). supposed to be easier than Tapachula route.

Anyway if this is in line with anybody else - drop me a line. Or look out for a BMW F650 Dakar with Zega cases

All the best.
Richard

Wow, Brits abroad or what! Just when you think you are unique.....

Great to hear about everyone travelling in Mexico. We are Jane & Richard and are travelling on a yellow GS1150. We are currently in Campeche from here will explore the Yucatan (Uxmal, Chechen Itza and Tulum)before crossing into Belize just after New Year. From there we will go straight to Tikal and then hang around in Guat for a week or so before racing down to Panama in order to fly to Quito mid to late Jan. Eventually hope to be in TDF no later than middle March (weather permitting)....at least thats the plan!

Would be great to meet you guys, so if our plans cross yours at any point let us know. Contact us here or through our website

Safe Riding everyone!
