    Loving Honda 90 guy! It's not always about speed and power. I wonder how many views he has seen that faster travelers missed?

    What a fantastic adventure so far, congrats on reaching this milestone and will be following along for the rest of the journey. Love that you post so many of your pictures, too often we pick and chose what we think readers want to see when really we enjoy seeing them all.

    I found the Chocolate shop Popawheelie recommended last night and indulged again. wow

    Gracias for following me. Much appreciated!

    You’re welcome Bill. Thanks for taking the time to follow!
    We’re staying until Sunday!
    I sometimes wonder if my pictures truly capture the breathtaking qualities of what I’m seeing. Comments like yours provide incentive! Thank you!

    Thanks Dan. And thank the wife too. The idea of people following along helps bouy my spirits often. Giving back to the community of riders that got me going in the first place.

    this made me smile Elron. Gracias!

    He was a cool guy too. Left the Hostal very early and we passed him right before town.

    I’ve said it before and it’s worth repeating.
    When travelling one needs to step out of the mindset you’ve developed your whole life and STOP judging others based upon your own limited experiences. Prejudice disappears.
    Evaporates into thin air.
    And to those that ride to far away lands and feel inclined to inject critical comments into your reports? (Peru is a shithole covered with trash. People in Ecuador are rude, etc etc etc......FUCK RIGHT OFF lol)


    Yay! Thank you for that comment! I can tell when the composition of certain pictures warrant posting, but there are SOOOO many days where the throttle lock is activated and I’m riding along no-hands snapping pictures that I’m hoping the results are appreciated by others than myself!

    Awesome journey! Thanks for sharing.

    Not sure if anyone has asked, or I missed the post but did you ever find that relief from your cluster headaches you were looking for?
    I hope so!
    Congrats again, and I hope you get to keep going for a long, long time!

    Great RR Dan!!! Ushuaia is a truly unique place. The picture of the dock brought back memories. Left from that very location to Antarctica.
    Thank you for taking the time to put this great read together.

    Agreed on the selfrightous negative comments! "Fuck Right off!"

    Lets go have another piece of chocolate.

    yes, there’s another sign at the Park at the end of Ruta 3 outside town. Maybe a ride there soon. And the pic posted here from today

    Great to hear from you.
    I’m just short of three years of remission right now, the second-longest I’ve had. Fingers crossed. The large dose of shrooms in Oaxaca couldn’t have hurt.

    pretty sure I’m riding north into Paraguay, into Brazil, through Uruguay and into Bolivia and then Peru and back north. Maybe even the Stahlratte again to Panama. Then it’s a short jaunt back to the US and wherever. Ohio again. Maybe Denver.

    Incredible RR, been following from the start and drooling all over my key board. Man you are a hard ass rider, all the obstacles you had to overcome along the way, friggin awesome.
    Can't wait to see what/where comes next.
    QUESTION THOUGH, and appreciating that your answer may change on the way north, but if you were absolutely forced to pick a place from along your journey to retire to, where would it be.
    Give us an inkling based on your journey so far, then I'll ask you the same question once you are home in the USA.
    It'll be interesting to hear how your answer might change.
    In the meantime, celebrate your ass off and take a breather before you start to head north.
