Long term storage solution in montevideo uruguay
Hi People, I've just put my moto in storage with Kevin who's dad has a motorcycle shop in Montevideo and employs several mechanics who are going to do a few jobs on my bike while I am back in Scotland. The shop is also worth a visit just to see the collection of motos including a beast with a 6,000cc US muscle car engine squeezed in it's frame and as Kevin's dad appears to be the local agent for Royal Enfield some new US standard thumpers. In addition, Kevin and his dad have both done some good bike trips in South America so they are kindred spirits.
The advantages of storing in Montevideo as I see it are:
1.You can get a 1year Temp Import for your bike if you enter Uruguay by road.
2.It's cheaper than B.A. even when you take into account the cost of getting to and back from B.A. if like me you intend to fly home from B.A.
3.If you decide to store in Montevideo and have the time, Uruguay is quite magic especially when you get into Gaucho land i.e 15ks in from the coast and in the summer if you get sick of lassoing cattle, head back to the coast to gaze at acres of young bronzed (I hate them) scantily clad males and females (select one or both this is a prejudice free web site) and do some more rounding up although branding in most cases is not advised.
