Should have mentioned that I only want the machine for abot 3-4 weeks and would then like to resell it.
If you're open to the idea, I could purchase the bike off you and then sell it back to you at the end of July for a discounted price to be agreed on, assuming is in the same condition that you sold it for.
Because I only need it for a month the main item I would need is the panniers.
Riding 2 up is totally good on the Dakar, half of my last year riding in Colombia was 2 up with a fair bit of gear, front end gets a little light and wobbly if you are too overloaded on the rear tho...the Ohlins shock helps with 2 up load.
Unfortunately, buying it back won't work for me as i want to sell it not rent it...I will be staying in Colombia and it's not legal to import used motos so i need to sell it and buy a local one.
I think there's a guy in Cali that rents and does tours but cant remember the name of the outfit
Hi Wouter...where abouts are you at?...the bike will need to leave Colombia at some point soon so am looking for a traveller who will place value on a complete ready to go package versus someone who will stay in Colombia...what are your plans?
make me an offer if you are interested...here is a list of what I have into it;
I am currently living in Bogota and I am planning to start heading for Bolivia the beginning of next year. I am not sure about yet what the possibities are at this point to use the bike the coming months in Colombia but I can find out.
Hey, I'm interested but need a bit of help understanding the price point. I realize you have listed everything... but I'm not sure if that's what you are asking or if it's FYI. I am planning on coming down from Vancouver and want to do a 6-month tour of SA. Planning on leaving BC in August... what do you mean by "the bike has to leave soon" and would my timing work for you?
The list and pricing is for info only for what I have into it...I am open to negotiation and it would certainly be easier to deal with someone from BC.
"soon" is not really an issue as the bike is technically in the country illegally at this point as my Temp Import Permit expired last fall as I needed to return to Canada as my mother was not well...she passed in May so now I need to deal with the bike...another month will make no difference so August would work fine and if I need to go there with you so be it but maybe we can work it out so I wont need to.
we are just getting settled here in Victoria and I will be in Van next week sometime so we can get together and talk in person if you wish.
Tim, I am am living in Ecuador and would be willing to buy the bike off of you at the end of July if you make the purchase. Depending on the price/condition of course, but I am very interested. Let me know.
Hi Brian...yes it is still available....the bike is in perfect condition and needs nothing... one of the local shops (which many consider to be the best shop in S. America) offers free service to international travellers so I had them go thru it top to bottom...it didn't need much and is now running better than it ever has since I have owned it...they have been running it regularly since it was stored
when are you planning to travel?...we are planning to head south around the end of October/early Nov but could adjust if need be
