XC: Bought a used XC from an advrider Inmate in Montana, US. That is were the my America trip started.
Other travelers were going on all kind of bikes. BMW G650, F800, 1200GS, some older Suzuki and Honda stuff. I did not see one single Xchallenge or Xcountry.
My trip from Norway to Russia were supposed to be a solo ride, but I met pepole and rode some alone and some with others. The America part of my trip I rode with two friends for most of the time. We also met others which joined us for some days/weeks. Gringo trail: We did drive more on the Pan American highways than off it, but we tried to get off and do dirt roads.
We started in September ending before christmas. I would say that you should have at least 6 months from USA to Ushuaia and to get somewhere where you can ship your bike from. We had too little time and we could not stop and visit all places we wanted.
Thanks for the update Steve!
Looking forward to your S. America report when you get around to it.
Doing a good Ride Report takes a lot of time/effort. I've never done one.
