Two friends of mine started their journey of a lifetime two month ago: They flew their bikes (BMW F800 and R1150 GS) from Germany to Anchorage, rode up to Dead Horse and then all the way south. I've been on vacation in California and managed to meet them some weeks ago in San Diego. It was very inspiring to hear their stories and a somewhat bizarre moment for me to say good bye knowing there are another six month on the road to go. Both of them have a blog in German: Andy's facebook page (available for non members too): https://www.facebook.com/pages/Panamericana-2014-Andy/216575401852463 http://robby-panam.tumblr.com/ Now on topic: They are now in Salina Cruz, Mexico and their spare tires, all camping gear (lone rider mototent) and rain- and thermo-inserts have been stolen from a barbwire fenced and monitored hotel's parking lot. At the moment they are busy to find replacements, whereby camping gear has lower priority since they decided to stop at a hotel further on. I assume that this stuff will pop up on the black market there soon. If by any chance members from the Oaxaca area spot one of the items then please remember this post. Feel free to contact Andy on facebook (he speaks some English) or send me a message and I will forward it. @ forum admins: If this isn't the right place for this posting please move it. Thanks.
