Has anyone done a pan-american motorcycle/car trip?

Has anyone done a pan-american motorcycle/car trip? I've been to many states on a motorcycle but I want to step it up a notch.

Is 10k a reasonable amount to complete this journey?

    10k sounds doable if you already have the bike.
    It will mostly depends on how fast you go (if you're just going from point a to point b driving everyday or if you stop a lot along the way and spend time doing stuff). I'd feel very comfy with 20k.

    I did a cost per km analysis on a motorcycle trip a long time ago and found something like 25k$ for 25k km but I forget if that includes owning the bike, I was going to do it on a cheapish bike like a klr. Incidentals are the big cost, gear, bike, camping stuff... also gas is double now what it was when I last looked at it.

      >25k$ for 25k km
      That's one way to say "$1 per km" I guess.

        not really because its a nonlinear relationship that only crosses at 25k. Hence my comment about incidentals.

      Nice to see someone who is honest with themselves. Personally I would kill myself though.
      Also, going 60mph on any road on a motorcycle in Mexico is definitely not a good idea, but we all learn from our mistakes, it's just unfortunate when those mistakes don't forgive. I can say without a doubt that it is only by shear luck that I am not in his situation today.

        Honestly it sounds like the dude was just very inexperienced. Same shit could have happened here with a deer or whatever.

      Almost nobody tries to cross by foot. Legtitimately dangerous.

        Two weeks on dodgy smuggler boats is what you call a closed gap?
