Olá Susana,

Já tem alguma informação sobre o transporte da mota para a América do Sul ?

Estou a planear uma viagem de um ano por este continente partindo do Brasil em Novembro 2006, por isso mesmo estou em busca do mesmo tipo de informação.

Obrigado

Olá Nuno.

Um ano na América do Sul?! Que sonho! Também gostava de fazer o mesmo mas falta-me não só a coragem para pedir licença sem vencimento no trabalho, como também os recursos monetários para tal aventura (se puder vou tentar arranjar patrocínios). Já me contento com 1,5 a 2 meses ao longo dos Andes.
Ainda não decidi se vou no verão 06 ou 07 mas a viagem é certa!

Deixo aqui o mesmo pedido ao Nuno e Enrique:
o primeiro que conseguir as informações procuradas divulga neste fórum, ok?

Olá Susana,

Obrigado pela tua resposta. Pois um ano de viagem é mesmo um sonho. Não vejo qual a razão para não fazer o mesmo!! Só se vive uma vez!! Eu devo partir só daqui a um ano, por volta de Novembro ou Dezembro 2006.

Ontem estive em contacto com algumas empresas de transitários e coloquei-lhes a questão de transportar uma mota para o Brasil via aerea. O custo é de cerca de 1200€
É necessário vazar todos os liquidos da moto (oleos e gasolina) bem como retirar a bateria e isolar os bornes de contacto. Faz uma pesquisa na net em "transitários" e encontras muitos contactos. Ou então contacta a TAP (secção de carga), eles tratam desses assuntos directamente.

Bons sonhos e não desistas...

Nuno Leotte

Hi.
To many people recommend send the bikes to Buenos Aires instead of Brazil.(easier paperwork).
May be for you That talk Portuguese could be easier ,but we are not so sure.
With our small Portuñol, could understand your post, but to many people don’t and this information could be useful for other travellers and also some one can help you more than us. So Please try to write in English
Good luck

Ps you only need to dry the fuel tank no more than that.
