Brazil thread

I think it's time to start a thread about my beautiful country, Brazil.

The idea is to create a place for:
  • Brazilian ADV riders check-in
  • Travelers tell us that they are here
  • Future visitors ask questions
So, lets go!

I will be visiting your country on my way north later this year or early next year. I think Brazil will be the highlight of my trip through the Americas.

Make sure to include Brasilia in your route, so that we can have a beer or two!




Note: Brasilia is the capital city of Brazil. Not Rio de Janeiro

I will just chime in to say that Brazilian riders are the friendliest, most supportive, most helpful and hospitable in all the Americas. The only drawback appears to be the distinct danger that once you start accepting invitations your forward progress will diminish to the point where you'll outstay your visa, which could be a real problem.

I can believe it. The Brazilian riders I have met along the way have been great people.

Crashmaster,
If you happen to be in the neighborhood, I am planning two trips in November - December.
1. An 8 day trip around the state of Rio de Janeiro (29/11 - 6/12)
2. A 10 day trip of the Estrada Real and the Historical cities of Minas Gerais (13/12 - 22/12)

I'm from Belgium but living in Brazil since Jan. 2009, and starting up a motorcycle travel organization (http://www.mirantes-mototravel.com) and these trips are going to be kind of 'dry runs'. I'm planning to really get business going early 2011. You're welcome to ride along for no charge. :o)
Grtz

Hey Raphael,

I had a look at your website.
Great business you are starting.
If you come to SP or Santos, let me know and we can get together for a beer or two and discuss business.
Good luck !!!

Gracias. I cant wait to get to Brazil, however, it will probably be January or February. I am also looking at the possibility of riding all the way north to French Guiana, Suriname and Guyana. But, I think that is the wet season and is a long way off anyway.

Saludos.

Info about the roads

For those travelling through Brazil, there is a website of DNIT - Departamento Nacional de Infra-estrutura de Transporte very useful.
It tells the asphalt condition of the federal roads

Can someone do a little short story translation here for me about the condition of BR 319 and when is the time to go. From what I could tell there are lots of red dots and something about Jan to Jun

Thanks for some help,

John
