2 Week Motorcycle Tour -- S America, Patagonia, Chile, Argentina, etc...
I'm looking to plan a 2 week motorcycle tour in SA for Jan 2013 (rapidly approaching!). Ideally, I'd love to find something down into Patagonia, though I'm pretty flexible and open to other potential routes spanning Chile, Peru, Bolivia, other parts of Argentina... All depends on the dates, prices, and tour operators.
Thus far, everything I've found has been extremely expensive. Places like Compass Expeditions look great, but I definitely can't swing $7,000+ on the tour itself (let alone flights, visas, insurance, etc). That'd put the entire trip somewhere around ~$10K.
I feel like everything I'm seeing online is tailored toward older retirees looking for 3/4 star accommodation and food throughout (hence the $10K cost). However, I'm just really interested in a reliable guide and bike. Beyond that, I don't mind guesthouses and camping the entire time.
Anyone know of any more reasonable ($$$) and reputable operators in the region? Something geared more towards folks in their mid-20's that can compromise a bit of comfort for the sake of cost?
Or have any other suggestions / tips on going about planning such a trip?
