Ushuaia anyone?

My wife and I are travelling on a Suzuki Vstrom, currently in Ushuaia, will be here until 25 Nov then on a trip to Antarctica, back in Ushuaia around the 7th Dec. Any other motorcycle travelers around?

Merv, what road you took? If you go through Onaisin it's a great road, but it is raining since last tousday (7 days in a row) and it might ruined the road.

We took the route down my the Y79 then left onto the Y71, and I though it was rough - Rough as in bumpy in our truck, but no bad ruts or anything. Nothing that would stop anything getting through, we were being passed by cars.

Oh, and great news, the sleet has stopped, and been replaced by rain so it's grand now :-)

Merv.
