South America Blog

   This is the journey I have always dreamed of,  to ride my motorcycle across the Americas. 

   Follow me as I travel south from Texas to the tip of South America on my BMW GS.   

    Here's a view of the  Map 

Rallies in Mexico

  The BMW Rallies in Mexico are very different that those in the USA.   Rallies in the USA are about camping and finding the vendors you've been trying  to get a deal on there products.  Rallies in Mexico are about getting a group of riders and having a BIG party,  the five star way!

    Its the kind of rally that you'll ether like or not.

I like them myself,  its a chance to see old friends and me new.  You go on some sort of rides  then stop for a big lunch,  then ride a little more back to the hotel and then get ready for an even bigger dinner.

   This year we were entertained in Guadalajara for the first two day,  taking a Tequila Express train to the land were Tequila is made.   After the two days in Guadalajara the entire rally moved to Puerto Vallarta  320 km away.  Fun and relaxation were the order of the day after dropping into the heat of the coastal pacific area.
