Shiping aus to south America
We shipped into valpariso chile 9 months ago. Shipping time was 80 plus days ex Melbourne. If you can go without or have a second bike to ride while you wait this is the cheapest option. Contrary to what some of us Aussies think, we are not the centre of trade. Shipping across the pacific usually goes via hong kong, Korea or Japan and then port hops down the west coast of the America's last stop being in the south of course.not convenient but cheapest. BMW 1200 adventure cost @$1200aus insured. If you want further info happy to help. Brian & Shirl (Aussiesoverland.com.au)

And maybe RORO is an option with Wallenius:

hi brian n shirl ,did you use villakunterbunt in valparaiso and do you have there contacts.i am torn slightly as it cost me 1600(plus dang goods $160 ish) flying my 1200 from sydney to LA(with quaintarse airways which was excellent by the way).i was hoping to do it from down to up this time but i am always open to the path of least resistance for travelling.
roro is always good but the baggage cannot go with the bike nez pas???

any more advice or suggestions welcome,cheers
