C5! has this one: http://www.newfrontiersadventures.com/MC/CentralAm.html. It's probably the ballsiest Darien crossings- with a ride up the El Llano-Carti road.

Martincito very awesomely posted this: Uyuni, Laguna Colorada and Verde. Mini Report for those who don't know, this is in Bolivia, and it deals with the salt flats and lakes. This is an extremely remote area. You probably shouldn't even read this if you're not an expert, or else you're going to have serious anxiety attacks.

Wow- Lone Rider and Throttlemeister- your compliments have me all choked up. But those are empty compliments if they don't come with beer.

I'm so choked up I can barely add Hi-Jay's Patagonia-Bound, about two Michiganers (Go Wisconsin!) riding fancy brand-new matching shiny fully-kitted BMW R1200GS motorbikes from Michigan USA to Patagonia-where? Stop by and tell them how shiny their bikes are and how cute it is that they match. Hi-Jay likes to compare his to a shiny new HD. (Can you tell that I'm jealous?)

In case anybody was wondering about my own personal criteria for adding a Ride Report to this thread, basically I wait until the ride report turns into a real ride report, or has something that I think might convince another idiot to try something stupid. Anybody with different criteria is welcome to add links of their own, or am I the only one addicted to Ride Reports?

I'm gonna have a SA ride report for you that just won't quit. I hate doing research for a ride but this one has me reading everything I can get my hands on. I love SA!

You make it to Columbia for the rally and I'll get you a beer.

ahoraquemister is riding from Bogota to Buenos Aires, and he writes with color in a small font, like this:    Bogota Colombia to Buenos Aires December 17th - 2008 to January 17th - 2009!!!!!!!.

It's catchy, this mulit-color writing! Oh, he says he's too busy to link his thread himself. So now he owes me another beer.

ahoraquemister is a funny guy. He said he'd post the link... and he posted it on my Latin America! ride report. Here it is, verbatim:

ps: for the noob's out there, or for those of you who just don't know the real truth- in the old days, the world was divided into three parts: the USA, Yourup, and Outer Darkness. All of the world south of the USA was included in the "regional forum" known as Outer Darkness. Barb and I went on a little ride to Mexico. I started a ride report called "Latin America!" Soon after my awesomenest ride report, the all-powerful mods got together and got drunk and ended up naming a regional forum after my ride report.

That's the history of advrider according to me.

Bogota to Buenos Aires travel ending.

For those of you looking for some info on our trip (in the making, but ending) here is the link:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=413392

keep suscribed... in about a month well have the video out, since it was the pourpose from the beginning. We have Mb and Mb of fotage and when we come back to Colombia will start editing right away.

You can see past edited footage on:

On account of Cruthas being completely insane and probably suicidal, his Shipping bike from Panama to Colombia just got bumped to 2nd right behind Ozy. Way to go Cruthas!
