South America Trip

Hi,

That sounds awesome, i think i may have posted on an earlier post by bart that I also have very similar intentions. Planning on leaving from santiago not buenos aires at this stage but not set in concrete... maybe we could meet somewhere? Would be really keen to travel at least part of the trip with others if either of you are interested.

Let me know by private message if you are keen to catch up for a bit.

Shane

Ahoy,
I'll also be over there with similar intentions. Arriving Feb 5th in Santiago and planning going to Ushuaia and then back north to continue RTW. Would love to bump (safely) into yas somewhere along the line.

Other bikers searching for travellers in SA that time have posted here:

Joe, I have been down there twice. Argentina will not let extranjeros (non Argentines) take vehicles purchased in AR, OUT of AR.
Buy in Chile, and you are free to cross back and forth, but for limited amounts of time. 6 months per year, if you intend to ever take it back....

Hey Crogromphulous,

Sorry should have been more specific. I'm buying a US registered bike. Yeah, don't want to deal with the paperwork to buy an Argentinian bike. Thanks for the tip though.

BoRed,

Have been to Cuzco 9 times (most recently June-Aug 2010). Can give you lots of hints. Did you know that you can rent or buy a bike in Cuzco (you would have to bring it back to Peru tho).

Cheers, Toby
