Darrian gap crossing/pananma /Colombia

How are moto travelers crossing crossing from Panama to Colombia, now that the Stahlratte is no longer in service?

Start with the "planning" episode and watch them in sequence. This is literally early 2022, I don't think you can get any better information than that.

As they said in Jaws - "we're gonna need a bigger boat". Don't most 4x4s go in containers from one side to the other?

Back to bikes - the other widely used option has been to fly them across the Gap.

Ill bet it cost a small fortune to get her 300, across anything bigger than a honda 300 would be inviting disaster Cargo Pack airlines would solve your problem for 1200 usd , last years prices

Sure, but then you wouldn't have gone the whole way on the "surface".

Thank you AnTyx for posting this.

I had a good laugh .... first time I saw a YT video about the next part of my journey ... like watching an online tutorial to bake a cake .... she did a very good job getting her 300 Honda to Panama ... and documenting it

all the boats she used looked good and solid and the crews more or less capable of getting her bike (or my 650) to Panama more or less safely. The tricky part is the loading, but I have done a lot worse boats, canoes and rafts in Africa with me not speaking a word of the language they speak.

But first I will look for a sailboat, as I have started to sail last year.

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.
