Anyway, Nosiglia is located in the zona Sur!

Hi,
Nosiglias is about it if you are looking for a touring bike in La Paz and it's expensive ($100 per day for an Africa twin). It does go down for a longer hire but cheaper in all neighbouring countries.

Hi,
we are actually trying the same but in May 2007. Walter Nosiglia doesn't rent any motorbikes anymore. I called that company and I received that answer. Another option could be the company Guerrero Tours.
info@guerrerotours.com (contact person is Roberto Guerrero)
www.guerrerotours.com (currently closed due to reconstruction works)
I already booked an Afrika Twin for May next year but somebody crashed the bike:(. Guerrero Tours is still considering whether to replace that bike or not. But they offer smaller bikes. If you can postpone your tour from April to May we could maybe travel together!! I already booked a flight for May 16.

Hi Norbert,

thank you for this information. I will try to contact Mr. Guerrero.
Unfortunatly we already booked our fligths for 5th April. But we are a little bit unlucky because we booked by Alitalia which has financial problems. Nevertheless we think positiv:biggrin:

What did you planed in do in Bolivia? Maybe we have the same route so we can exchange us.
We are 3 boy - Niklas (27), Thomas(27) and me (Jens 27) - for the near of Berlin. It is our first time in Bolivia. We planed the following Route: La Paz-Oruro-Sucre-Potosi-Uyuni-across the Saltlake-Titicacasee-La Paz. In the last days we get some new tips so we now look through our Route to particularise it.
I look forward to your answer.

Bye, Jens

Hello Jens,

Our route will be quite different. From La Paz we want to go to Sajama and entering Peru to Lauca National Park, Arica, Arequipa, Canon de Colca, Yauri, Cuzco, Puno and back to La Paz. I (Norbert/52) want to travel together with my wife Gabi on one bike. I also booked the flight with Alitalia from Berlin. Nevertheless, please keep me informed about your proceeding and any news. Let me know if you found out a renting company. By the way, we live close to Lüneburg.
Take care
Norbert

Visit Sucre
 
Hey Folks,

Just saw this old thread passing by. If you ever make it to Sucre then come and look me up in my bar. The Joy Ride Cafe in Sucre. Near the main Plaza. Or maybe some of you have already made it.... there's lots of bikers coming through these days.
And I can confirm there's nothing much going on in Bolivia concerning bike rental. You may want to google Buembe butterfly farm in Santa Cruz. Carlitos, the owner, was in those days thinking of doing tours on quadbikes and two wheels but I don't know if he ever got it off the ground.

I'll be off to Lima on my Dommy but I will be back!
