Help and acommodation in Iguazu

Hi guys,

To those coming to Iguazu, border with Paraguay and Argentina to see the Iguassu Falls or a tyre in Paraguay or even just coming for a cold beer with locals, I can offer my help and a friend of mine settled a hostel specially for bikers, the place has a good space to work and park the bikes, the place is called "iguasu motorcycle travellers hostel" and for sure is a good option to get in touch with bikers and get information about the SA.

Any questions please get in touch through www.bikershelpdesk.blogspot.com

Trails in Brasilia

I'm in Brasilia and just got my Tornado 250 up and trail ready. Been on some of the trails nearby, but looking for more folks to ride with. Anyone around and want to head out for a trail day?

Hola

Anyone in the Rio area willing to help a rider + his GF from Canada who are arriving in RIO February 9th for Carnaval for 5 days and really needs a place to stay.

Know it is short notice, but he is a great guy and would really appreciate the help!

OK so I made it through the BR319 in the dry season last year but now I am thinking of trying my luck again but this time in the rainy season. The BR319 is considerd a harder ride than the BR230 in the dry . Can the same be said in the rainy season ??? I think the BR230 might be harder going with all the trucks smashing it up the last few months in the rains but at the same time the is more chance of help if things get a bit out of hand so to speek . What do you guys think of riding out here at this time of year ? opinions please

Basically, I say you're a nut, David.

...and for that reason I think you should try it.

Just a though if any one has been out this way . How often are the rains on average ? I mean if I get bogged down to bad is it worth setting up camp and waiting a day for things to dry out a bit or is it just time to get digging and pushing ?

Not bad. Getting fat on tacos. Doing the BR319 in the rainy season would be tough. The muddy rutted roads would be difficult and slow going, but I think your biggest problem would be the bridges. They rebuild a lot of those bridges every year for the dry season and let them wash out in the rainy season. I think your biggest issue would be hitting a washed out bridge over a river that you just can't cross without a canoe and then not having enough gas to back-track leaving you "up shit creek without a paddle." Also, if you're missing even one bridge there will be zero vehicle traffic to get you out of trouble. There's also the possibility of long sections of road being completely flooded. I vote that you make some inflatable pontoons. Bonus points will be awarded for either tyrolean traverse of the bike over water or full disassembly of the bike down to major components, portaging it piece by piece and reassembly on the opposite bank.

I'd go for, just take a water purifier for the long walk if you have to, some rope and little folding shovel not a bad idea either along with the required machete

What's the worst that could happen...

even in the dry the were verry few people out there on the BR319 . maybe the BR230 might be a better option as the are more vilages on route if I need to wait it out for the dry season
