Wedding breaks trip: Ideas for leaving country without bike ?
My nephew is getting married bang in the middle of our trip in Central & South america.
Has anyone got any experience of leaving the bike in a country & returning for it later ? I've scanned the info & the posts, all good stuff, but not quite what I'm after. I could do with a couple of months out, as once I pay for my flight I want my money's worth !
Essentially I'll be attempting to leave the country with the bike stamped in my passport, so will need something to say it's ok. Then when I return to pick up the bike from "safe storage" - a whole new question ! I can ride off into the hills.
Any clues as to which South American countries might be more amenable to this ? I've not had much joy lookin on govt web sites yet. How about Peru or Bolivia ?
The only alternative I can think of is shipping the bike home for the wedding & then back again to continue the journey. (a weddin is a weddin in our family !)
