FYI, the Ibira Moto Point will take place again next Tuesday, May 15. For those who are in the São Paulo area, do come by! It starts at 6pm.

Best,

Cuiaba MT

I will be in Cuiaba MT May 29th till June 9th. Anyone know of any moto tour companies there? Not looking for long trips, just maybe a day of cruising all the dirt roads in the Pantanal. Thanks!

Pantanal...

Hi there,

I don't think there's any moto touring company or moto renting in Cuiabá, but if your budget allows it, you should rent a car with a GPS and take the Transpantaneira south to Porto Joffre and back... Porto Joffre is about 250 km from Cuiabá and it's 150 km of dirt road and 126 wooden bridges. Apparently there wasn't as much rain as in other years, so the dirt road should be good to drive , even with a normal car. I know it's not the same as on a bike, but it is the next best thing for sure. (Here's a link to a car rental place http://www.mirandatransporte.com.br/...dex.php?ted=NF - Ferdinandi Gelber - but I'm sure you'll find plenty places around the airport.)

There are many fazendas along the tranpsantaneira where you can do fishing trips, horse-riding or wildlife spotting excursions. Who knows you might even see a jaguar or two

While you're at it, the chapada dos guimarães (about 70km north-east of cuiabá) is another great place to check out. someone did a 3 part guest post on my blog about this place, apparently sometimes referred to as "Brazil's Wild West".

Thanks for the info... I have been to Chapada many times, and the pantanal, as my wife is from Cuiaba. I have not been down that road you were talking about though. I will look into it!! I might be able to borrow a extented family members moto, but was really wanting to rent one. I will go check out the Honda Shop in Cuiaba and see if they have any idea.

Thanks again!

I will be in Rio June 12th, let me know if you wanna get a beer or hit up the night!!

Jericoacoara

Anybody have any tips on riding to Jericoacoara? I've found a couple websites on people doing it, but it seems that there are a few options to get there, either taking the same route at the 4x4s or else riding to the beach farther to the east (Cruz?) and just riding the beach into town. Any experiences appreciated. I'm on a well loaded DR650.

I'm in Fortaleza now, but will be between Ceara and Rio Grande do Norte probably for about another week before heading for Jeri, if anyone's in the area.

Obrigado,
Josh

Hi guy's!


Now we're in Porto Velho discussing our options how to get further...

Shipping sounds ridiculus expensive. We agreed on a price..( 1300Reals) to get from here to Manaus on the ship with the bikes and in a cabin. Than they came up with an additional loading fee from 200Reals....

Has anyone a connection here for the shipping problem?
Or... has anyone been on the road's to Manaus or Santarem this year??? Any good or nightmare??
And if Santarem.. is it possible to ship from Santarem to Macapa on the north shore? We planned to go that way to cross the Guyanas..

Thanks in advance for any good idea!!!!

Three Riders are right now crossing the Transamazonica and then BR-319 (Porto Velho to Manaus).
Here is the email address of one of them (Fleury): oscar_fleury@yahoo.com

His Spot Link is :
http://share.findmespot.com/shared/f...JDmz6vyGjuKCU8

I suggest sending him an email.
Obviously he will be out of reach during the BR-319 crossing.

Please note that to cross BR-319 (The Ghost Road) you will need gas (400Kms), food, water and camping gear.
You should camp at the Embratel (Telecom) Tower Sites - protected with barbed wire.
Avoid camping in the jungle, without protection. There are jaguars around.

Let me know if you need any additional info.
Have fun.

Hi Lucio!

Thanks for your respond!
400Km and food for 5-8 days should be allright. If we reallt need to we could use the waterfilter and tablets.
Do you know where the guy's are? Did they finished the road allready?

I will write a mail to the adress!!

Just seen the spottracker.
They're still a fair bit away from Port Velho...

Would you know where to ask about the road conditions ?

Hummmm........that's a challenge.

Please note that the Brazilian National Roads Departament (DNIT) does not consider the BR-319 an official road in Brazil.
BR-319 was built in the 70s by the Military Government and later simply abandoned.
It is now being slow rebuilt but there are around 400 KMs (the middle section) without any supervision by DNIT.

I know a Rider (Mark) who has done BR-319 recently.
He might have updated info on "road" conditions.
His email is : diem_mk@yahoo.com.br

Send him an email and mentioned that you talked to Lucio from the Brazilian V-Strom Group.

He might be able to provide you with some information about the road.
Meanwhile, I will try to get some additional info.
I have been planning and postponing this road for the past 2 years.

Have fun.

Br-319

These guys have crossed it a couple of years ago (check from "Day 4"):
https://sites.google.com/site/cartap...orte?offset=10

There is this video:
http://youtu.be/krSfR9aULF8

If it rains, things will be tough.
Otherwise, you should be able to cross it in 3-4 days.

Have fun.
