How has the ride been?

We will be leaving for Mexico next week. How has your ride been so far - any sage advice to share?

We are having the time of our lives. My advice is have a great time!!!!!! You will not be killed robbed or molested in Mexico!!! Take less stuff. If you are going to be in the USA for a while and see "parks" get a National Park pass. In Mexico and the rest of Latin America drive like they do. It is sort of a agressive defensive strategy. Topes are hell get a bash plate. Connect with local riders on ADV and HU they will be what makes your trip rock. PM me for any specifics.


Cheers

We will leave the bikes in Panama and go home to work 3 months in May. Then we will ship to Colombia in August. We head to Ushuaia for Dec 2013.

We found some good roads here.


Around Lago Cuatepeque



Backroad from Metapan to El Poy

The twisting pavement from La Palma southbound

The ride from Chaletenango to the ferry


Ferry across to Suchitoto

Riding the cobble in Suchitoto

Nice road around south side of Lago Ilopango


Five Tunnels road on the coastline to La Libertad
Puerto del Diablo


We popped in at liobasco for a quick look
Most of the secondary roads off CA1 are in really good shape. For a small country it really delivers ! The beach areas are ok too

El Tunco
