Mariano at Motocare
I wasn't able to meet the Dakarmoto folks when I was in BA, but I've heard great things about them.
I was able to meet Mariano, owner of Motocare, [ Motocare
] and strongly recommend him. I had accumulated many problems between Seattle and Ushuaia, and up to Buenos Aires, through my 8 months on the road, and his team fixed everything in a timely fasion at a very reasonable cost.
I'm in Arica, Chile, now and had a problem with my back axle nut - completely stripped because the axle threads had been damaged. I emailed 5 different mechanics and Mariano got back to me immediately with great advice and offered to look for parts.
[he suggested going to a "Tornero", or a machinist and simply having him re-thread the axle and buy a new nut. $4.50 later all is well and my only regret is that I'm a little embarrased that I didn't think of it myself but it's a good example of Mariano's helpful professionalism. He also sells and rents motos.
Mariano is in the Belgrano neighborhood at:
