Walter is ex-motocross champion from Sucre, Bolivia. He´s the official
Honda dealer in La Paz. Great guy. He rents out XR 600s, XR400s, and
Africa Twins as well as ATVs. Good quality. He just started another
company called New Millenium Adventure Sports which is dedicated solely
to this purpose. They have a site at: www.nmadventures.com
which features monthly prices for the above vehicles (usd 1500 aprox.) but Walter is a guy you can talk to.
I was with walter in April of this year and I really liked the guy.
Friendly, helpful and professional. Get in contact with him and see
what kind of a deal he can cook up for you. You can also buy a bike
through him, he will have it registered with all Bolivian papers and
plates and ready to go. As he said: "In Bolivia, everything is
possible." However, prices for bikes in Bolivia are more expensive than
i.e. USA or Germany. (i.e. Africa Twin costs 11.600 USD with
Argentine living among the Vikings in Oslo, Norway.-
