South/Central America - tips / advice ?
Having motorbiked around India, I'd love to do an overland RTW trip. However, I'm finding the logistics/costs of shipping/carne/insurance etc quite head-spinning. I was thinking of a lower-cost alternative:-
Could I just book a flight to somewhere in South/Central America. Buy something basic like a Honda/Yamaha 125cc and then set off, more or less, without anything but a international license and some decent insurance?
Would there still be a lot of hassle traveling between boarders with a bike bought in, say, Santiago? Any thoughts or advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
