My buddy and I are talking about shipping our bikes down to Panama from San Francisco in January 2009. We were thinking of taking two months to get back to SFO . I've found the Central America Ride Planning thread and will digest that information when I can. I've looked for information regarding shipping the bike to Panama and only finding out about people shipping from Panama. Has anyone out there shipped their bikes to Panama and rode home from there? How are January and February for travelling through Central America? Any info or leads would be appreciated!
