    Thanks for your input!

    I plan to go as far as I can, while still having a good time, and ship my bike home.
    How far South should I try and go in only 8 weeks? I assume just to Panama. I could ship the bike home and then just backpack in Columbia for the last bit.
    Can you suggest any good trip reports to read that are around 8 weeks long?
    Nothing is fully planned yet, but I think I will take Baja, and I have a friend to see in Puerto Viejo Costa Rica.

    Here is why I only have 8 weeks - I just got a job offer and resigned from my current job. I wanted to take an 8 month motorcycle trip through all of South America. But this new job is too good to pass up. They are giving me 10 weeks until my start date, I would like more time but I feel pretty lucky.
