thanks octopus, it's looking more and more that i will be forced to rent from motocare; it's nice to know that it is a decent company, although i have to say their prices at US$100/day (350 free km) seems very expensive considering i will need a bike for approximately 21 days.
cheers,
bub

Will be picking up my moto in Buenos Aires 16th of Sept. and will travel for two weeks with my wife then may need to head home for a month if we get the bid for a large project here. If not then I will start the ride home alone (Washington State). Keep me posted as to your plans and maybe we can ride for a way.

hi roadhog and waterfox, i'll be arriving in BA on sept 20 and would like to spend a few days there sightseeing. Afterwards, I would like to find a motorbike to rent and then start making my way south, then west to chile, up to mendoza, then back east to BA, making a full circle

Any thoughts on this trip?

RH- would like to meet up with you if we're going the same way; you get to BA a few days ahead of me, not sure what your plans are

I road south to TDF last year so will be looking to ride Northwest. Also have been thinking of making a loop that I did last year (will have my wife with me for two weeks). That would be north on 14 and 12 up to Igu. Falls then into Brazil, south to Uruguay and back to BA. A lot depends on if I need to come back after two weeks or if I have three months to ride.

One plan was to ride the Northwest and cross into Chile then up to Peru where Martha would fly back to BA then home and I could continue on north. It is getting to be that time where I need to figure it all out. Send me an email and I will let you know when I get the details worked out.

I have always thought that plans were just so you know what you were suppose to do that you weren't, thus I have not quite got it figured out yet. If I get in to BA on the 16th I will need a day to do some work on the bike, (will be at Dakar Motos). I could run up to the falls for a short loop then into Uruguay for a day and back to renew temp. import paper. Then back to BA the 23 or 24th and then head for a loop up in Northwest Arg. Will talk to the wife tonight and see what she wants to do.

Hi Bub ... if starting from Santiago, Chile is another option then you might consider my 'special' riding opportunities ... big, travel seasoned bikes and a guide which is keen to make your adventure something to remember ... visit my site Chile Moto Adventures and we can work something that will be of real interest and pleasant.
Cheers,
Roberto

Looks like wife and I will fly in on the 13th and spend a day doing some upgrades to the moto then head north east. She needs to head back on the 29th and would like to see if we can make it to Machu Picchu before that so will not be able to hang around. Might be able to bump into you somewhere, keep me posted "firemt@myhome.net". Best way to find someone riding when you get there is to head over to Dakar Motos and see who is there.
Anyone else out there traveling the northwest Arg. in mid Sept.?
