Nice! Glad that you will be back to riding in Colombia again soon. Hope to have a chance to run into you along your way south... Hey srileo - I'm glad that you have enjoyed the RR so far. Venezuela and the Guyana loop was a great experience! I'll have to admit that we are a little sad to miss out on Iquitos, in particular, but being able to spend a little time in Colombia more than makes up for it. And while moto travelers may not have posted much info on the float between Peru and Manaus, there have definitely been local bikes on those boats, maybe even a few overlanders. It's certainly doable. Cost and time can vary greatly, though. Being a good haggler in Spanish will help with cost. Going downriver from Peru to Manaus will help with time. Either direction will require a few different boats, for instance: (1) Manaus to Tabatinga then (1.5) canoe to Santa Rosa then (2) to Iquitos then (3) to Yurimaguas or Pucallpa. Upriver (as listed) travel time would have been around 10-12 days, excluding layovers. It would have been interesting, but we couldn't have carried enough books to keep us occupied for that length of time. Riding is more fun anyways. Especially through Colombia.
