Greetings from Copenhagen, Denmark!
My name is Andreas, 31 years old and for some reason I am thinking about doing a trip around South America (SA). This summer I bought a used Kawasaki Versys and went around Eastern Europe on it. It was fantastic and I want more!
So I am considering going to somewhere in South America, spend a month or two learning Spanish, buying a motorcycle more fitted for SA and driving around there for an unknown and unrestricted amount of time (of course it is restricted by certain boring things like finances and stuff
I have a few challenges as I only speak Danish and English, my mechanical skills are non-existent and I have no sense of direction
I am thinking about starting this trip in about 6 – 12 months and in the mean time my main concern is learning some basic motorcycle mechanics (not sure where to do this, bought a few books waiting for them to arrive...), finding a good starting location, finding the right bike for the job and learning (a lot) more about SA
Looking forward to asking you a lot of questions (and later answering a few) and maybe drinking a few
s if our paths cross in real-life
