Hi all,

I'll be in Alaska in August and heading south. That's about as detailed as my plans are right now.

Hope to meet up with others along the way so will be watching your blogs / this forum with interest.

Cheers,
Ali

What bike did you use for your trip?
Is it easy to buy a bike in BA?

Cheers Dave
As a foreigner, buying a moto in Argentina will open up a can of worms ┬┤cos basically even if you can afford to buy it is illegal to export it. Chile (Santiago) is far more traveller friendly and there is lots of info on the HUBB. Ride safe.
