    Yes, I would have to agree. The entire RR was good but the part about Baja really gave me the Mexico bug BAD. I can't stay away now.

    A newly finished classic. Five college guys travel across the US on clapped out old bikes.

    Co-authored by XS500RUS, Seca750RUS and TX500USA.

    Cross Country on a $50 bike....

    These boys from Ithaca did a fine job of writing up their summer ride. :clap :clap :clap

    Over in the Latin America forum we have a Ride Report Link Thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=317793

    Let me know if this is ok to cross-post here. Otherwise I can delete it.

    It looks like this:

    On account of the total insanity of Cruthas, I'm putting his crossing of the Darien right after Ozy's. This is a MUST READ. The good stuff starts on page 7. The thread started out as a question, "Shipping bike from Panama to Colombia" CAUTION: DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU WORRY ABOUT STUFF.

    Chickens hogs and other road hazards, by Boyscout. This should be included in any MSF course on Latin America.

    "Chasing Summer," by Jean-Luc. Epic 2007-2008 trip from way up north to way down south.

    Machu Pichu, the alternate route, by Boyscout. Nobody is supposed to be able to ride to Machu Pichu (or Aguas Calientes), you're only supposed to be able to ride to Cuscu, and from there you're supposed to walk for 4 days, or take an expensive train. Nobody except Boyscout. (Brian and Marie also did it, and they were two-up! Mere mortals can't.)

    South America Top 10 Rides, by Mickycito. Mickycito is the owner/operator of www.compassexpeditions.com. His "South America Top 10 Rides" is a must-read. Have a napkin ready because you're going to drool some more.

    Martincito very awesomely posted this: Uyuni, Laguna Colorada and Verde. Mini Report for those who don't know, this is in Bolivia, and it deals with the salt flats and lakes. This is an extremely remote area. You probably shouldn't even read this if you're not an expert, or else you're going to have serious anxiety attacks.

    Thornado has a good one going: Southern Exposure: Seattle to Argentina, a guy and a girl, each on a KLR of their own.

    I can barely add Hi-Jay's Patagonia-Bound, about two Michiganers (Go Wisconsin!) riding fancy brand-new matching shiny fully-kitted BMW R1200GS motorbikes from Michigan USA to Patagonia-where?
    Finding PANAMA, by Jeff Munn, from January 2006. Also in the Hall of Fame.
    Here's another good one from Gpothaven. "Americas - All the way up, all the way down... "

    - this quote is from 11/26/08. Read on, try not to drool over the photos. I think Nina is the best photographer on advrider.

    I know this thread has been DITW. My apologies. Things will be easing up a bit at work soon, and we'll kick this thing back into gear. Promise.

    This, it seems to me, deserves a perma-sticky.

    I don't like the idea of too much organization around here (this place ought to be an adventure to navigate) but ...

    This is a great reference to the Crown Jewel of ADV.

    Thanks for your efforts PM. :thumb
