Thumbs up Wanna go on a Brazil Adventure?

During CCR, Davis Bales with http://www.brazilmoto.com/ donated a trip to the silent auction to benefit CCR and therefore our selected children's charity this past year.. The Treehouse project...


Now, I was the high bidder on the Brazil trip.. therefore I am looking for a select few, to join in me in a custom made tour lead by Davis Bales... visit his site for more information...

I am thinking of March 17, 2007 time-frame... 8 nights, as you will note, rooms, bikes, meals and fuel are provided... small group 6-10 folks, one up or two up.. custom tour ( we set the pace and route) I am flexible with the dates within a few days of March 17, 2007... I already have plans in Salvador for the week ending on March 12, 2007.

Should you be interested or want to be put on my communication email list for this custom trip planning... contact me at [email protected] ....please put in subject line ... Tour Brazil

Can you say Rio?

That would be a great ride.
I don't' know Davis Bales but I was checking their tours and looks like he pick well. (the web site need an update, since the best tour in my opinion still mark "coming in 2005", but Brazilian Wonders 14 days sounds a great one.)

Let us know later how you like my country.

Hey Floyd, from his website http://www.brazilmoto.com/ which has all the information and routes and fares...depends on which bike, single or two up...

includes just about everything... tranport to and from Rio De Janiero International airport....

March is like our late summer, early fall.. kinda like our September/October.


Air fare extra, need passport and visitor visa as well...

Would love to have ya'll join me in the adventure...

Check out the web site.... web site is outdated, but Davis is honoring the prices listed...

I am thinking of the Best of Rio or either the Historic Sierras tour... 8 nights is the basic tour...we can do more if you want... the group (6-10 folks will dictate the ride and itineraries.

Take a look and then let me know... drop me a PM or email...
