Adv Riders in Guatemala

Reading a fellow Guatemalan ADV rider's RR, I came to realize that we should start organizing ourselves to know each other and to help fellow riders while in our country. I myself feel privileged to be part of this group, although my traveling experience is limited to Mex and CA. I have been trying to do my best to make riders from the world over feel at home while in Guatemala, which has given me the opportunity to meet some of the most wonderful people while in their high of living their dreams! Maybe as an organized group we can improve on the experience that people leave Guatemala with, whilst making friends in the process...

So far, it's me, Richsuz, Guaterider and CHAPIN.

Anyone else? Maybe, as suggested by Julio (Guaterider) we could organize a meet/ride maybe sometime in January?

Gentlemen,

Although I don't know any of you, I wish you the best in this endeavor. Please drop a line to elsalvadorklr (Christian). He is a fine man, and would make a great addition to the group.

Many Thanks

Local ADV Folks,

Many thanks for starting this post. My riding partner and I leave for Panama from California in early February. Nice feeling to have local ADV folks to search knowledge from.
