Peru anyone going?

Hi,
My wife and I are currently travelling north, 2 up on one bike. At present we are in Mendoza and expecting to be entering Peru in around a month or so. Given the present situation we are looking into options. One is to transport the bike across Peru via truck and fly to Ecuador (not my first choice). Another option maybe to join other travellers in Bolivia for security in numbers and travel together. If there are other travellers thinking the same it would be good to hear from you.
We are English, German and Spanish speaking if anyone wants to message us.
Simon.

Perhaps we can meet

Hello Simon,
I will start in Mendoza in september, going to Bolivia an then to Peru, Ecuador and Columbia. Until now I didn't get informations that the situation in Bolivia and Peru should be so dangerous to have to use a truck. But I'm not informed detailly I confess. Perhaps we can meet in Bolivia, where I will arrive between 15th an 2o th september. I'm occupied in planning the trip.
Kind regards
Rainer

I wouldn't worry too much about "trucking it through Peru." Ecuador has really nice riding and I recommend checking out Cuenca. Spend a lot of time in Colombia if you can also.

Always worth checking the dates on posts before responding....

I heard from some friends who spent a couple of weeks in Ecuador recently, and they sounded chastened by the situation there. They're not riders, but one of the couple is an experienced traveler, fluent in Spanish, and not easily frightened. In particular, they said many roads are dangerous these days.

I'd take it all with a grain of salt, of course. But it does sound worth keeping an ear to the ground, particularly in light of the election.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
