    It's not exactly a ride report per-se, but this thread has the best pics of Baja that I've yet seen:

    I'm planning a two-week trip into Baja and back through the Copper Canyon for the first two weeks of April, if you want to come :D We are four bikes right now but I plan to invite advrider soon.

    Annette rides solo from Alaska to Argentina. She's at Tikal right now.

    As she says:

    Just a question: Do the people who do these charity rides use the donated money to pay for their expenses on the ride, and then give the excess to the charity, or do they pay for their own expenses of the ride?

    Max,

    That works great. Thanks for the time and effort in doing it.

    Here's one you might or might not want to add to the 1st page. I discovered it while reading about riding 2 up on a China bike in Colombia.

    Just check out Gaspipe's RRs, he's done two within the last six months with one current right now. I forget the name. Something like how many beers can you drink or the like.

    I just saw this! Dude, I only tried one other time! :lol3 And gave up after blowing my budget ($200 for the whole week that I wanted to be in Mexico). Not to mention the rain! 6 inches in 2 days! I talked with a lady the other day from McAllen and remembered that.... she got a good laugh when I told her I was riding my motorbike through there.

    Here's another one going in the south to north direction.

    SunnySideUp and, ocassionally, some companions tackle South America and, if all goes according to plan Central America and North America. Just depends on whose bike is running at the time.

    Banana, Nata, et al, I apologize for the laziness, I just don't have time to do research right now. Can you direct me to the ride report with the best Colombia coverage and the best guide to flying my bike from Colombia to Panama? (I leave Venezuela tomorrow for the Colombian border). Thanks! Again sorry for being lazy, but I'm sure one of you has the answer quicker than I could find it.
