November 2010 Departure date

My name is Alex,I'm currently a college graduate with a 08' KLR 650 who will be traveling to South America from the United States(Texas) on a 3 month journey to through Mexico, Central America to Tierra de Fuego Chile, Argentina, Brazil and more! This blog will document and keep track of this incredible journey for your viewing pleasure.




I am currently sponsored and endoresed by Riders of Kawasaki (ROK), Kawasaki International, and Accelerate Magazine for this trip. I speak fluent Spanish/English and am looking for riders interested in joining me for this incredible journey, (safety in numbers/cheaper hotels/buddy system etc.). You would need to provide your own vehicle (I can help) and finances. You'll be featured in Accelerate Magazine and will help raise money and awareness for a worthy cause/charity(details soon to come).


I have vast experience in motorcycle riding, maintenance and adventure. I have traveled through 49 US states , visited almost every US national park, all Canadian provinces, Alaska and most of Mexico including Baja, on my KLR and backpack by myself. I'm highly experienced and will share my skills with any fellow rider interested in joining this adventure. You do not have to go all the way nor are obligated to, and are welcome to join a part of the way or the entire trip if you'd like.


Departure is set for November, specific date will be determined once confirmation on a shipping vessel has been booked for voyage from Panama to Columbia. I have already seeked a route, points of interest, and some lodging, I have family in much of Mexico who will gladly provided shelter, safely and food for the night on the way down to South America.

I am very open minded and flexible and welcome all suggestions, and will adapt to specifics of fellow riders wanting to join, such as places you would like to see, or avoid.

Please contact me through email or this blog if you are interested in joining me on this amazing adventure.
