I am ALL SET... leaving Sao Paulo on Monday July 1st towards Paraty and Tuesday I will start the ER. I have 100% of the original tracks mapped in my GPS.

If time allows (planning 10 days) I will ride:

Leg 0 - SP to Paraty
Leg 1 - Paraty - Ouro Preto - The "Old Way ER"
Leg 2 - OP - Diamantina (Caminho dos Diamantes)
Leg 3 - do tarmac Diamantina back to Ouro Preto (or Belo Horizonte)
Leg 4 - "New Royal Road" from Ouro Preto to Rio.

This goes about 2,000 km... I plan to ride as much as possible without going iron butt-like, maybe stop at some nice sites for pics and views but not a lot of tourism/colonial church visiting, etc...

Going solo as my buddy bailed on me too close to the trip...

Are you guys really doing it? We might end up meeting somewhere... company would not hurt... let me know in case you want to touch base and agree upon some meeting point.

Best!
Hey!
I am planning on going up the Estrada Real starting tomorrow too!
I am in Rio and therefore was going to go up the Camhino Novo then Diamantes then keep going north into Tocanchins and through Brazil. My plans a very loose and flexible so if you are keen to ride together let me know. I could come across to the meet you on the Camhino Velho maybe. I will send you a PM with my details. I'm an Australian riding a DR650
Cheers!
