    I just bought a KTM 500 in California that I was going to ship over to Thailand. Instead of shipping it from California why not spend a couple months riding off road to Panama and shipping it from there. Woohoo thats sounds awesome:clap.

    Only issue is I cannot find any RR's that cover any decent offroad tracks. Most everyone does the odd dirt road, but usually it's mostly pavement heading south. Is anyone familiar with any resources, maps, tracks, RR's etc where I can can get info or resources that would assist me in determining if this is possible in advance. I do a lot of exploring in Southeast Asia offroad by myself but since gas replenishment is usually longer distance spans in central America I would prefer to have some idea of routes before I left.

    Any suggestion, ideas, etc.?

    Just to say i have read the sticky on Mexico and central America but looking for more detail on suggested routes. If you know any RR's with the same mission objective or a source for other route information some finger pointing would be most appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
