Woman buys new Honda in Buenos Aires
Christine, a beautiful blond woman originally from Wales, but currently residing in Hong Kong, has arrived in Buenos Aires. She had pre ordered a new Honda from a trusted authorized Honda dealer in Buenos Aires.
Monday: Christine arrives Buenos Aires, checks into her residence, and locates the nearest police station where, with her passport and exact address of her residence applies for a "domocillio," one of the 2 documents required of foreign tourists to purchase a new or used motorcycle in Argentina. Then she rested.
Tuesday: Tuesday was a holiday in Argentina, and Christine toured the city.
Wednesday: Christine's "domocillio" was hand delivered, by police to her residence. She immediately went to the local AFIP office presented her passport and "domocillio," applied for and received a CDI, tax number, the other of the 2 documents required for foreign tourists to purchase an Argentine registered motorcycle.
With "domocillio" "CDI" and passport in hand Christine visited the Honda dealer, inspected her new Honda, that was out of the crate and assembled, paid the dealer and completed all paperwork necessary for an Argentine title, registration, plates and green card. A Gestor, (one who transfers vehiicle titles as a business) employed by the Honda dealer will do all the leg work necessary for the documentation of Christine's motorcycle.
Thurday: Christine has a play day in Buenos Aires
Friday: Christine has another play day and shops for some touring gear.
Saturday: Christine receives a phone call from the Gestor, who advises her that one more signature is needed and he invites her to his office. Christine provides the needed signature and has another play day and night in Buenos Aires.
Sunday: Christine dropped by our apartment and Elisa and I assisted her with route planning and tips for touring Argentina. *Jeff Condon, Globebuster's guide recently arrived Buenos Aires leading a group of 20 BMWs from Alaska also dropped by and helped orient Christine for her upcoming motorcycle tour of Argentina. * 2 years ago we assisted Jeff Condon in purchasing a used Argentine registered bright yellow Citroen 3cv. His story can be read at the beginning of my thread:

Wednesday: Christine will have all paperwork in hand, insure her new Honda and ride it over to a trusted mechanic, who that same day will custom build racks for her gear.
Thursday: Christine will saddle up and begin her tour of Argentina.
As Buenos Aires HUBB Community members, Elisa and I have enjoyed meeting and helping Christine buy new in Buenos Aires. We look forward to many more of you making the decision to buy new or used in Buenos Aires and then touring Argentina.
