Trying to buy a bike in Santiago
Ive been reading some posts from the others regarding buying bikes out here, if anyone knows of any machines for sale right now in Santiago, or surrounding areas please let me know. Looking for a decent overlander in Santiago now. Something like a 95-05 Transalp, Africa Twin, BMW F650, Tenere, KLR 650 etc.... ideally with Pannier Racks, boxes not important as have soft luggage.
We´re staying in Barrio Brasil, SMS to +44 7980 571 375 or mail davecaygill(at)gmail.com. I´ll also check in on this post in a couple of days.
Any advice on shops/streets appriciated, I´ve been to Calle Liro and San Isidro, but only found a ocuple of maybe´s... Anyone know of anyother good dealers in Santiago?
Also trawling internet..
btw regarding the RUT - I asked a government tourist advice fella at the airport, and he seemed pretty sure that all you would need is the reciept from the dealer to leave the country? is this true? Ive seen lots of posts saying the RUT is required...
