Video: South America, by motorcycle


Here’s another traveler’s take on South America by motorcycle.  Filmmaker Miguel Silvestre is putting together a 13-chapter documentary for Spanish-language television, and this is some sample footage.

You can see more of the video here, but the teaser clip is a fun sampler of what you can expect if you ride around South America on a BMW R 1200 GS- it looks like a lot of fun, especially if you take the time to do side trips through ancient ruins, or go for a rip across the Bolivian salt flats. Just remember the warning – “pregnant women and children should stay away from this channel.” We’re not sure why that is, but hey, enjoy it anyway. Be sure to click on the HD quality button!
