Start from Brasil our Argentina??

Can anyone advise me on this:

I am planning my journey through South América starting from Brasil.
Is it more difficult to fly a bike from Europe to Brasil rather then to Argentina.

Any advise on this?

Nuno

I dont know which destination is easier to fly it to, but I am sure Argentina (BsAs) is easier to get it thru customs.

Argentina, definatly ! It was very easy to get the bike from customs - only took me three-four hours and that included putting it back together.

Flying bike To Brazil

Hey

Just wanted to say that we flew our bike to Sao Paulo Brazil and it took us 5 days and about 200 US dollars to get it through customs including storage fees and a man to help us through customs. If you want more details check out our web page fly_Your_bike. Just follow the link below.

If you have any questions send me an email.

Brad
