Could not find a recent thread on this topic, and so I'm starting one. I will share our (wife and I - two motorcycles) recent experience, and also hope to get input and experiences of others who are currently in the country. For the uninitiated: The current (see date stamp in thread title) unrest in Bolivia is due to controversy surrounding the recent presidential elections. Among other ways, this unrest is manifesting itself in the form of road blockades. These in turn are currently making smooth travel by motorcycle difficult. To start this off, I am just going to copy what I also posted on the PanAmercian Riders Association Facebook page and on my current trip report. Not trying to "liter the web", but I expect that there may be a non-overlapping audience here on this regional forum, and hope that this thread will grow with useful input from other riders currently in the country or otherwise with useful information. We (wife Carol and I, two motorcycles) rode yesterday (Monday October 28) from Ururo to Sucre on Route 6 (which despite Google Maps is a complete, paved route). We ran into quite a few (~6 mas o menos) roadblocks on the main highway, some unmanned, some with crowds which in one case were NOT friendly; picked up rocks, angrily told us to get off our bikes and take off our helmets - which we did not do. Some shook my bike - but eventually lightened up and let us through. Others were more amiable. But still a hassle and lots of stress not knowing if we were going to make it past each one we came to. Coming into Sucre around 5:00PM, there were roadblocks literally ever other block - city was totally shut down. We lost count of how many we diverted around or talked our way through - until one person told us they would end at 6:00 PM, at which point we just waited, chatted and posed for pictures. And at 6:00PM, they MOSTLY did open up - but on the last few km to our hotel we still ran into a few who didn't seem to have gotten the memo. All in all, a very stressful, long day, to which Carol wittingly commented "Let's not do that again!" So that is our experience - hope it is of use to others. At least in the city, there appears to be some understood schedule for what days roadblocks will happen and what hours - but we don't have that schedule! From here we were intending to head to Uyuni via route 5, breaking the ride up with an overnight stay in Potosi. But we are a bit spooked from yesterday's experience - if anyone has current info on conditions on the route, and the towns (Potosi and Uyuni) it would be greatly appreciated. Our other option may be heading to Cochabampa and then to La Paz and exiting back into Peru, skipping Uyuni, which I'd hate to do but I don't want to get stuck either.
