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 

Guatemala

My ride to Guatemala was one that I always looked forward to.  The vistas of the mountains are just amazing.  I rode through a beautiful canyon with two tall mountain bluffs covered with jungle.

I meet other GS riders from Guadalajara, Mexico.  They were heading to Guatemala as well for the holiday.  We rode together to the border. 

Crossing the border into Guatemala can be a challenge at times.  There were no issues this time.

Guatemala is a country with many volcanoes, beautiful textiles, and colorful painted chicken buses.  These buses will run over you if you are in the way.
