    ahoraquemister is riding from Bogota to Buenos Aires, and he writes with color in a small font, like this: :norton:becca:norton¡¡¡¡¡¡Bogota Colombia to Buenos Aires December 17th - 2008 to January 17th - 2009!!!!!!!.

    It's catchy, this mulit-color writing! Oh, he says he's too busy to link his thread himself. So now he owes me another beer.

    ahoraquemister is a funny guy. He said he'd post the link... and he posted it on my Latin America! ride report. Here it is, verbatim:

    ps: for the noob's out there, or for those of you who just don't know the real truth- in the old days, the world was divided into three parts: the USA, Yourup, and Outer Darkness. All of the world south of the USA was included in the "regional forum" known as Outer Darkness. Barb and I went on a little ride to Mexico. I started a ride report called "Latin America!" Soon after my awesomenest ride report, the all-powerful mods got together and got drunk and ended up naming a regional forum after my ride report.

    That's the history of advrider according to me.

    On account of Cruthas being completely insane and probably suicidal, his Shipping bike from Panama to Colombia just got bumped to 2nd right behind Ozy. Way to go Cruthas!

    I've never been to Baja and I don't know what makes a Baja ride report really exceptional. There are a few on the front pages of Ride Reports. Any favorites?

    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:

    I updated the first page by editing-in links to the ride reports that we've all been posting. I didn't put many non-advrider links on the first page, but my criteria is pretty subjective. Also, I really am not an expert at all on Mexico/Baja reports. If anyone wants to compile them, I can put them in their own section, in post #2. If I miss any that have already been posted, and any of you think they should be on the front page, just let me know.

    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.

    He does have a link to AdvRider on his blog.

    Good find! I'll add it to the first page.

    Now could someone please start nominating some Baja and Mexico reports.

    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.

    Rain, blown budgets, blah blah- what did you expect?! It happens to all of us. Some have wives to explain to, others have kids or... blah blah. You have top-billing in the Mexico portion of this thread. How about some provacative almost-naked lady pics?

    RIDE! TAKE PHOTOS! MAKE SHIT UP! POST A RIDE REPORT!

    Like this one, from Flash412: Touring Tierra del Fuego &tc. about riding around southern South America and hardly talking at all. Awesome photos.
