  1. I can't help but feel that your moto adventure would be a hugely different experience if you weren't able to speak the native language of the country you are visiting. Thank you for sharing your adventures, Pedro. Rubber side down, amigo. P.S. Any time you meet another motorcyclist, please show us their motorcycle. Thanks.

  2. Pedro the Mate is a good alternative for digestion problems also It helps with fluid retention because it is a natural diuretic, als je me niet gelooft, vraag het dan aan de koningin.

  3. Got a haircut too! IDK when did this happen, but just in case you are in Argentina, all the roads/tracks in the altiplano between RN40 and RN9, as well as the ones in the mountains east of RN9 are awesome, similar in terms of solitude to the ones in Bolivia. Since we had a 30% devaluation, I guess your Euros are much more valuable now.
    Keep up riding and uploading content!

  4. Hola Pedro!!!,bienvenido a la Argentina!!!.Si venís para la provincia de Córdoba,tenés techo,comida y Wi-Fi en mi humilde casa,vivo en Capilla del Monte!!!.Un fuerte abrazo!!!

  5. Hi Pedro, nice video. i can see that you've been already corrupted by latin philosophy by buying fuel " sin factura" hahha , that's provably stolen fuel . Here I'm in Wales watching your video and drinking mate like you. Thanks for the video, ride safe

  6. Check out the whole trip so far through South America

  7. He man love your video's. I'm planning my own trip because of you. I was wondering how do you navigate? You won't have cell reception everywhere.

  8. Hey Pedro, do you plan on visit Rio Grande do Sul (Brasil) as well?
    There's a road between Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina called Serra do Rio do Rastro.
    And if you get to Acre on Alp you are a hero! Some say there are still dinosaurs there…

  9. My friends Rebeka and Tyler and I were just denied the ferry crossing from Baja because we screwed up and didn't enter Mexico properly. It's funny that you're dealing with something similar.

  10. Do you know that Syrians drink Matte also. They call it with the same name as well. I was surprised to see it in Bolivia.

  11. Pedro, you are so great I’m so many ways! Your patient tenacity is admirable. Finding the dope deal on fuel & paying extra (love it) & rolling with the punches at the boarder & meeting people everywhere you go. You inspire me on so many levels!!! Bless you

  12. I get that you try to save money on petrol, but honestly if you go to the shadiest places to fuel up, you can't complain about getting crappy fuel which makes your bike run bad 😀

  13. Met Pedro at the Salt Flats in Uyuni. Im back in Canada now, and here i am watching him getting into Argentina. Cool stuff, pretty happy i can follow your journey.
