Speaking of danger on 2 wheels, recently about 12 American motorcyclists left Anchorage, Alaska
to start a 24,000 mile trip to the southern tip of Argentina.

Although I didn't check the maps of their route, wouldn't they have to traverse the violence-filled
climes of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Columbia?

What could possibly go wrong as they pilot their $20,000 motorcycles through these impoverished lands?

You left out the violence filled clime of Mexico. Along with parts of Washington, Oregon and Kalifornia.

If they really want an adventure I recommend they take the east coast route through Venezuela!

The wife and I flew out to Cali this past July unarmed. That's as risky as I wanna get.

I had a friend from El Salvador, which has some of the highest murder rates in the world, even considering war zones.
The stories he told me of life there would curl your hair. It's the home of MS13, MS19, and other folks who would just
as soon murder you as look at you. Sheesh!

If those Alaskan bikers look forward to danger, they should just stay in Alaska, find a giant bear, and then try to down
it with a 5 shot Ruger revolver. Now that's living!!

Arms discourage and keep the invader in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property...
Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of them.
