From Chile to anywhere

Weather is excellent, available time as you wish as from February, two Yamaha's Super Tenere's on top working condition to lease and myself willing to be your guide, interpreter and mechanical assistance for a trip you plan and ride at your pace. Just pay my expenses and sixty dollars a day for each bike and we go anywhere. This is not a commercial venture but a form of doing what you most like... bike riding, knowing different people and places, recording in film and photos the whole trip and enjoying every minute left of your life.
Cheers and welcome to my playground.
Roberto 'Thomraider'
PS.- During the last week of January, this month, I'll be riding with a lady from USA to the north of Chile but crossing the Andes to know and experience a different path.

It appears your rates are going up. In past posts you indicated that the fee would be 60 for a bike to ride plus your expenses. . . Now its 120.00 per day plus your expenses. Rather expensive.

Forsellini,
if interested, you should have said yes before this 3rd deal when the 2nd deal was only pay his expenses + 60 usd per day for the 2 bikes ... as i should have said yes when the 1st deal was only pay his expenses :-)
Thagua, when will there be a 4st deal at 200 us per day ? Try to put an ad on ebay. Just joking :-) Too expensive also for me but good luck.

As I said from the beginning its 60 dollars a day per bike. I have three bikes, one for myself and the other two to lease. Never said 120 for each. My expenses are fuel, food and lodging only... got camping gear if necessary. Vincent, as I told you before, you can buy a used bike but selling it in another country is difficult.
Bon voyage,
Roberto 'Thomraider'

Sorry but I've looked back at all of your posts and you've never mentioned "three bikes" . The earliest post said two bikes one for you and one for rent. You wanted pay for one bike and your expenses.

In this post you said "Just pay my expenses and sixty dollars a day for each bike and we go anywhere. This is not a commercial venture but a form of doing what you most like...

Two times sixty is 120.00. Or am I wrong?

Thagua,
no problem for me, whatever your fist offers were (your posts here or via direct email) but they can be confusing.
it s nice of you to propose your "services" and to try to help other people with info.
and yes it s not so easy to buy and sell a bike for a short period of time around chile.
happy trails,

Hi Bob: I recently acquired my third bike... but keep it a secret... don't want my wife to know about it... it is a 93 model exactly as my second bike... you know that bikes are our lovers.
Cheers,
Roberto

You may want to check out my new post for a "South American Motorcycle Adventure Movie" in Feb 07. This might be right up your alley, as a riding partner. Also still need to find a motorcycle photographer!
