    Even when you get to Peru, just try following the route of the stages! You'll think the Darien Gap was a walk in the park! :eek1 :lol3

    I am. Myself and some mates following as much as we can. Will be riding XR650,s

    Anyone else going? Would be cool to meet up for a beer along the way.

    Would also be interested in hearing from anyone about things to see along the way that might be interesting. Not that we will have too much time for sightseeing.

    Mcguyver,

    We will be 10 bikes (mostly XR650Ls) following for 4 days. I'm an American expat with 30 years in Peru. What do you want to know about Peru? :wink:

    Interesting, I didn't know about this. I am on the unofficial route though I see. If I were rich enough and had enough time, I would definately consider a ride down there.

    I plan on spectating it in a truck in 2014. So I'll be paying attention to how you guys get on with the race.

    Try an Aus proxy server, or buy a VPN to put your web connection 'in Aus', they cost about $70 a year.
