2 UP FROM 5 TO 9 - from New York to Brazil

Brazilian couple Lucio and Paula, residents of New York City, decided to take a break and visit their relatives back in Brazil. The only thing is that the trip is going to be a bit unusual (for non Adventure Riders).
They are riding their V-Strom 1000 from 5th Ave. - New York City to Av. 9 de Julho - Ribeirao Preto - Brazil.
Please join us on this Ride Report.
Tips, suggestions etc. are always welcome. Thanks.

First Leg - NYC to College Station - Tx, where my sister lives.
Adventure starts soon (April 5th 2009).
Let's Ride together !!!

I don't know your route, but if you're passing near Memphis, give me a PM. I'd love to join you on the road for 1/2 a day.

welcome!



Hi,

I'm on the border of San Antonio. You're welcome to stop by after your College Station visit if you need a pit stop on your way to your first border crossing!

PM if interested.

Cheers,
Carl

Lucio and Paula,

Great to know about your dreamed trip. The Brazilian community on ADVRider isn`t so big and our marvelous country isn`t so visited from ADVRiders, with exceptions of course. So, it`s a good opportunity to persuade more Brazilians to join this community and make us more visibles.

If you would like, I can give you some suggestions about your route across Peru (South of Lima), Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.

Keep us informed. Ride Safe.
