The Route and Motorcycles

The intended route is along the western coast of the US, down the length of the Baja Peninsula then over to mainland Mexico and south through most of the Central American countries.

From Panama we will board a motorized sailboat, the Stahlratte and set sail for Columbia through the San Blas Islands.  After disembarking in Columbia, our route takes us down the western flank of South America through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.
