I started riding my Yamaha V Star 650 from Florida, USA in January 2017 and plan on heading to Punta Arenas! Have seen the deserts of Mexico, volancoes of Guatemala and Nicaragua, the blue waters of Carribean and the incredible vistas of the Andes.

When did you start your travels?: 
Reason for taking this trip: 
Tired of working the 9 to 5
Why did you decide to drive?: 
I love riding motorcycles and avoiding the tourists hubs and big cities. I love the wind on my face and getting to meet and interact with local people
Are you also taking along pets?: 
Are you also taking along children?: 
What type of car are you driving?: 
motorcycle - 2004 Yamaha V Star 650
Where do you plan on driving? : 
Tierra Del Fuego
Do you have any advice for others who may be considering driving the Americas?: 
Dont't overthink it, save the money, and jump right in. Will there be problems along the way, of course. Is it good to plan ahead, of course. But don't get so bogged down by the details you never make the plunge.
