This is a good opportunity for somebody going out of Miami to S. America on a long adventure trip, which I have lot of experience on and can help on transporting and shipping.
To everybody, I can help to ship the bike from Miami everywhere in South America. Prefered ports, Cartagena, Guayaquil, Lima, and any port of Chile, Arica, Iquique, Valparaiso and San Antonio (1 hour from Santiago).
Have in mind, in about a week I will be promoting a few container shipments w/bikes to Peru and Chile beginning October (Peru) and January, February and March (to Chile). The ball park cost per bike will be $800 dollars (one way) for bikes just shipped and $2500 both ways shipment after 15 days touring. The home base is Miami (my home).
