Chili, Santiago, Johny Motos

Johny (real name is Ruben) runs a well equiped repairshop, and he knows his bussiness. If you want you can do the work on your bike yourself and he only gives a hand when you need or he does the job for you. He even has a bed in case of emergency (all very basic).

S 33.32.096

and than a little bit further on the corner, just give a bang on the metal slidedoor.

If you travel on a bike this is your guy!,

I can confirm that Johnny Moto is excellent. He totally rebuilt my Honda Falcon NX4/400cc. He did good work and has been friendly enough to give me some advice along the way months later when I was on the road. His workshop is well organized and his work style is tidy and systematic. He evidently has wide experience with various makes and models and has a large regular client base which includes even folks from the local police. I definitely recommend Johnny Moto.

(Plenty more detailed information on my Johnny Moto / repairs experiences on my blog - 2ForTheRoad | KEN & EBRU TRAVEL THE WORLD)

TdG: wayyy too late to reply on this, very sorry I though I'd be getting email notifications for new posts but I haven't so didn't look here..

Anyway for others: this is the correct address as of the time I visited - June 2012

Ruben Contreras / Johnny Moto
Americo Vespucio #8975
La Florida - Santiago - Chile

Big metal gate on the marginal road of the main A.Vespucio highway. Number is painted on the wall roughly so don't look for a neat sign like I did

(as mentioned in http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...santiago-25419)

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
