06 V-Strom USA registered in South Amer.

06 V-Strom in Colombia, South America. (US registered)
1000cc V-Strom
47k Miles
Special Custom Seat for long rides
Tall Adjustable Windshield
Givi Side and Top Cases
2 RAM Base's (on bars)
SAE connector to Cigarette socket
Power cable to Garmin GPS
Heated grips
New Wheel Bearings
New Front and Rear Brake Pads
US$ 4000

The bike needs:
New Chain and Sprockets
A Fresh Oil Change

Here is a little history on the bike:
This is Lucio & Paula's V-Strom that they road from NY to Brazil. (see their RR 2 UP FROM 5 TO 9 - from New York to Brazil - ADVrider ).
I bought the bike from them. My girl friend and I flew into BA, picked up the bike and road it back up to Colombia. The bike is being stored at a friends house.
The bike ran great the whole trip. I changed the oil when we picked it up, and gave it two more changes on the road. The bike does not use or burn oil at all, not even a drop. At the end of our trip I put new bearings in the front and rear, and new brake pads.
We would love to be able to pass the bike off to the next rider.
Lucio & Paula took very good care of the bike during their trip, and I did the same for the short time that I had it.

I have the proper paperwork ready, and understand what you need to have for Colombia / South America.

Good luck in your trip

Received your mail last night. Vstrom is a good competitor in this arena of long range good bikes. Glad to hear that you have got what do you need.

I just sold my Caponord to a trade for a KLR as a spare bike, not really happy about sellling the Capo at all, but one thing I know, I 'll be back in a high quality bike again soon and for better. The financial times are not good, just that.
One think I know Aprilia to be revindicated the next Dakar Rally next year 2011 . Aprilia will do a great moment in history and proved last year with various Chilean in command. kTM is not prepared for 450cc yet and probably never.
U.S. people have damaged Aprilia reputation in America mainly for being in favor of plastic and fashionable bikes. Nothing against BMW, KTM and others.

Have a good time in S.A.

Glad to hear you were able to do what you needed with the Aprilla. I would have loved to ride that bike in SA, but the V-strom's luggage and location really worked for us.
were really excited to get to see some of the Dakar, and we'll just have to wait and see who is ready with a winning 450.

Bump.
The time to sell this bike is getting a little closer, so I wanted to bring it up again in case any one is making plans for March.

Paper work

Anybody go through paper work and come out with a bike title property ??? Is that easier (probably) to buy a bike from someone who's not coming from the country is selling the bike.

Does anybody know how it's work or have the experience of going through the process ???

I'm looking to go in S.A and buy a bike to do a trip, but for sure after that I need to sell it, anybody in the forum do this ????

Is that worth the trouble ????

This is what I have done. The bike had a USA title and plate. I bought the bike from the owner. He sent me the title, and registered the bike in my name, and got the new title. It is now my bike and all the paper work is legal. It takes a little faith, ( I have not seen my bike yet) but the bike is waiting for me in BA. I plan on riding the bike north to Colombia where I will have it stored until I find someone who wants to buy it from me. I can send them the title, and they will own a bike thats waiting for them in Colombia.

Are you sure you can go out of Argentina? Even you are the new owner I think the paper of temporary import is still in the name of the previous owner, are you sure you are not involved in troubles at customs or if the Argentinian police will stop you?

We are about to fly out of Bogota. The bike will be stored at a friends house. The bike is in good shape. We had no bike problems or whole trip. I just put new wheel bearings in. The chain will need to be replaced soon. The tires have about to 2000 more miles left on them.
We had a great trip. I hope the bike can continue its journey.

Here are some pics of the bike all cleaned up before we put it in storage.
It has the side bags too. They were just in our hotel when we took the pics.

Do you still have this bike? I am planning on flying down to Brazil in the next few weeks and might be interested in purchasing it. It says you are in Riberao Preto and my family lives in Mococa, which as you know is very close. Let me know if you still have the bike and maybe we can work something out.
Thanks
Chris

The bike is now in Colombia. I bought the bike from the two that rode it down to Riberao Preto and road it back up to Bogota.
You should change you flight and ride to Brazil.
