A friend and I are aiming to leave from San Diego, CA on enduros and end up in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Need Help.
A friend and I are aiming to leave from San Diego, CA on enduros and end up in Buenos Aires, Argentina in early September. We need help planning cities to go to and more importantly cities to avoid. Any thoughts on this matter would be great. Also I've been able to map SD to Panama but I am having a hard time finding routes from Columbia to Argentina, help on this matter would be great, also which countries/cities in South America should we go out of our way to see?
About us; we are two 23 year old men who do not mind sleeping in tents.
Thanks for the help!

Not sure if you guys are on the road yet?
We have ridden down from Argentina, across to New York, back across to the West Coast via San Diego and are now on our way South to Argentina... Currently in Baja Mexico.
Let us know where abouts you guys are.. Happy to give advice on what we have seen so far and share any info we have.
By the way.. Good sites for overland motorcycle travel are..

I flew from Los Angeles to Buenos Aires and am returning overland to Santa Barbara. There are no cities you need to avoid--some are just better than others. There are tons of motorcyclists traveling the route--Alaska to Ushuia. Go to Ushuia blogs, find cyclists and check out their route. Have fun!
It sounds like one heck of an interesting adventure! The question I would ask is what you would like to experience along the way? You could take a route through tourist popular cities, or you could stick to the country and culture that is more original for every country you travel through. Remember to be careful while traveling into various South American countries. The dangers from both people and the water are very real in some locations, and not being mindful of this could make your trip memorable for negative reasons.
