I am heading that general way this fall (hopefully), but I am not sure how far yet or on exact dates. Of course, I am leaving from Denver instead.
I really want to do this trip this fall/winter. Working now to figure out the details, funding, etc. I'm near Albuquerque, so I'm basically on your way! Hope to see some of you out there!
As you get more details figured out, keep updating and more people might find common places to ride for part of the way. I think that is the most fun way to travel (but it does not always seem to work out).
I'm hoping to cross into Mexico about the middle of August, I don't think I'll be travelling that fast so there's a good chance we'll be in the same areas sometime.
Keep things updated.
I will probably cross down at Columbus, NM in Ghostrider's neck of the woods.
Planing to go beginning of oct -12, all the way down. Starting fr S.Diego or Phoenix. Just started to learn some spanish
"Quatro cervezas , por favor"
Im also planning to go down.. leaving from alberta canada sometime august or sept... it would be great to meet up with poeple along the way.. i want to be in Ushuaia for new year.. i heard there an adventure biker bash for new years!!! anyone else heard of this?
I know I have heard about some Christmas celebrations. Maybe it lasts all week..
Either way, I am not sure I am going to make it all the way there by then, but I plan on heading that way.
I'll still be in South America then
Thanks for rubbing it in, Mark!
Oh... I mean...
Have a nice time! See you next winter!
I am planning to leave from Boston end of 2012 or 2013.. keep updating... I my tag along!... leaving from Boston! I already started modification on my KLR650 for the trip... Cheers.
The more I read about people heading south of the border the more interested I am in joining along. What kind of time frame do people normally spend on trips like this?
I had always been hesitant to ride down into Mexico and CA alone, but I think i would feel a lot more comfortable riding it the first time with another person or people.
Im hoping to be gone for about 8 months on my wee strom!. maybe shorter maybe longer. If you would like to ride a bunch with me you sure are welcome too. i love meeting and riding with people!!!
We're heading down and hope to be in Porto Bello around Christmas for the sail over to Columbia, dr650 and transalp. Going to Ushuia, 4-5 mo total. Zippy
Well, I have taken 10-12 days (including drive time from Denver) to do a quicker Copper Canyon ride down into Mexico, but I am planning on taking a few months to head further south. I do agree that it sounds fun to travel with someone for at least portions of a trip, but so far all of mine have been solo.
I'm figuring on 9 to 10 months from Nova Scotia to TDF and back, the final length depends on how the weather is at home when I'm heading back
Totally agreed Phill!! The weather here in calgary can get crappy in april or may when i plan to be back.. maybe ill stay longer as well!! Hope the winter is looooonngg and cooold back here in canada while we cruise south!!!
Heading down to TDF from Montreal beginning of October this year. I have no fixed schedule, but I'm hoping to be on the road for 5-6 months. I'll be solo on a DR 650, or riding with a friend on a DR 650 as well. It depends on whether he returns on time from his UN mission in Haiti. Subscribing to this thread, I would definetely like to meet up with other advriders on the road, and possibly ride some stretches together.
Post up again here or Horizons unlimited closer to August, I have 1st Aug planted in my brain for leaving hoping to be in Mexico about 2 weeks later. Sounds like we have about the same schedule, I'm riding a Weestrom as well.
