Mexico & beyond in pictures.

Stage 1- Mexico



Hello all,

This year I have decided to try do a RR while travelling so who ever is interested can travel along with me as I go on my adventure. This will be my fourth trip South and a later start than my previous trips. My last three adventures I left around December 23rd and it was either raining or snowing when I left and this year its looking like rain again for my departure date of February 07/15.



The good thing about leaving a little later this year is that the daylight will last longer so I will be able to travel a little farther each day for the ride to the Mexican border. Once I cross into Mexico Im really in no rush and will just enjoy the scenery riding in the warm sunshine. I have decided to skip Baja this year and explore more of mainland Mexico. This adventure will be in stages as I travel to South America and Im hoping my first stage will be at least 2 months before I will be called back to work. I will store my motorcycle fly home, work a bit then return and continue on my way South. My goal this stage is to make it to my friends new Hotel in Salento, Quindio, Colombia. But Im thinking I most likely wont make it that far because there is too much to see and explore along the way and Im in no rush to get there.

My favorite hobby besides riding is photography and hope to share with you all many pictures along the way. My writing skills are very much lacking but I will try to write what I encounter and experience along the way into words.

I never travel with a real plan or route and like it that way. I do know that I will be riding the I-5 through Washington, Oregon, California then the I-10 to Tucson. From there the I-19 and cross into Mexico at Nogales. I always feel once I cross the border into Mexico the adventure begins.

So sit back and pop some popcorn grab a drink and lets go on a adventure together!

It's snowing outside, the garage is cold and not very inviting and I think I am getting a cold. All that just got much better when I saw your new ride report !

Enjoy! I know I will

Love the photo of False Creek and the Granville Island Market. Been too long since I have been there.

That was a great place to relax and waste a day doing a lot of nothing just enjoying the surf and watching the people coming and going on the water taxi.

If you are ever that way again, contact Karla who owns Boca Divers. Get her to take you snorkelling or diving out to Los Arcos. Great price and an awesome spot. Her shops logo is based on the Moto Guzzi logo and she and her husband ride. Good times. There is also a cheap airbnb there run by a Canadian woman.
