I am very grateful to all the individuals who knew that I am working in this field. They informed me worldwide by sending letters, later faxes and emails since 1971 about World-Around-Travellers. Without their help I could not get to this level. Please give me your "pardon" that there are mistakes inside of the informations and a lot in my language. At least you will never have seen such a huge collection of information.

First list in internet about "South-America by Motorcycle".
02.1998: A part of this you find already published under: > >NEWS (now deleted).
28.05.2000: This collection was first time published in internet: > >continents > South-America.
I would be grateful if you could help to keep this update ! So far you find many language and grammar mistakes inside because of lack of time. Pardon. Will be corrected and updated with more Travellers in future. Bernd Tesch has been working in this field since 1970.In this times I had to write letters and to phone or to visit the World-Around-Travellers to get contact / informations. Later Fax helped. In 1991 I visited the most famous motorcycle-travellers in Denmark, in 1993 in Britain, in 1994 in USA, in 1999 / 2000 in Australia and in between many in Europe (France, Germany, Netherland, Switzerland). Many of  famous South-America  Motorcycle Travellers have been at my yearly Motorcycle-Meeting for World-Travellers in april. I own the largest archive of  South-America Mc-Travellers. It is very hard to find informations about the history: "Exploring S-America by Motorcycle-Travellers". Do you motorcycle-travellers bewteen 1900-1950 ?? To find all this and all my activities was a "life-long job" and cost me a lot of money.

Since many years I am working in a new book called "Süd-Amerika Motorrad-Reisen" = "South-America Motorcycle Travellers". All books about "South-America by Motorcycle" and "Alaska-Tierra del Fuego" which have been published until 1994 are published in my in German written, but very international understandable book called "Motorrad-Abenteuer-Touren" (432 pp, 500 pictures / drawings. About 264 Motorcyle World-Tours. ISBN 3-9800099-55-5. € 19,90). I own all this books in all languages.
If there is shown "Book:" under the traveller and you want to read / order this you can check if it is still available: > > German / English version > Bestelliste or > Order. If you find this book there you can order it. I offer about 200 international available Motorcycle-TRAVEL-Books for sale.

Nelida Churches : Argentina octogenarian traveling by motorcycle

My name Nelida Iglesias born in Palermo in 1928 , and my Honda Rebel 250 1998 led tours around 110,000 kilometers of Argentina , Chile , Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay to know towns and villages, found friendship , camaraderie , people who appreciate me .
Girls always had bikes like Zanellita , besides my Rebel 90 I have a 1996 EconoPower with which they did about 17,000 miles.

In a time when there was a break in my life , after the death of my husband , I tried to take refuge in the senior center . While this is good ladies who attend , I was bored . It begins to tell the life , problems , what happens when you are lonely, depressed me . I said? ? Well, this is not for me. What do I do ? Do I not want to live or I do spend my final years getting to know the country? ? ?

He knew something about bikes when I had to fix my own little girl. Programs saw encounters with bikes that mechanics were pasted on the walls . Then I started interio riorizarme , bought the EconoPower and started to go to the closest encounters . Until at some point I decided to have the ideal bike , and so I had the Rebel 250 . From the moment that I began to travel the roads , and in two years I did 54,000 miles.

I participated in about 220 meetings motoviajeros and this has made me get many friends, no blood but I have grandchildren bikers are my grandchildren. That means a lot to me because I give a different image of what people think is the biker , the distorted image that came with the movies where you see a lot of violence . There are gunmen and bandits , things I do not like aggressive , nothing to do with that story. Traveling roads comforts me , is a way to live again. It has given me more momentum , more hope , has filled a big void . The people left alone, as it happened to me , has to find some thing to fill that free time left . It may well be making trips , biking , there are many things ? ? What not to do is stay home reminiscing that only one call them , are not coming back . Traveling is an unparalleled sense of freedom , I have seen landscapes, made ​​friends , met different cities , beautiful things that otherwise would not have been able to do?
