I used Strand Travel in London to book Grimaldi's RoRo, Tilbury to Buenos Aires. But I think they only now go to Uruguay. But the paperwork is the same. A temporary import visa and ride away. They do it for you on the boat. From Montevideo you can ride to Colon and catch the ferry to Buenos Aires. Or ride around.
It looks expensive but if you include meals, accomodation, waiting time for bike, shipping/storage costs, the boat is better value if you have the time.
I may still be here then (who knows?).
Second star on the right.
Then straight on till morning.
