great ride sun was out the roads 1st class met some other biker on the way but i was the only one that customs made me unpack my panniers still thats life. from Osorno head south towards puerto montt turned off at pto varas then on to ensanada where we got a cabana for the night only £10 each good value next morning i went up to the volcano loved the ride and the views but by lunch time my 2 brazilen freinds wanted to head north again as they have to be back in brazil on the 10th we went as far as los angeles 370 miles north i checked into a love motel it amotel where you take your girl freind or lover but so no one knows your there you drive your bike into a garage when you check in the lady gave me a strange look as i was on my own but it was great it had a big sunken bath which i filled and soaked in for an hour with my book and a nice bottle of red nearly steped on a scorpian when i got out so i did a 007 with my bike boots, i now know why Chile is not as bad off as Argentina the routa 5 or the pan american is a ATM there are payarges about every 40 miles and as many radar traps along it Chile should say bring cash on the 4th headed to Santiago there my frenids left me as i headed to con con when they stayed in santiago we got split up in the trafic so did not say our final goodbys. i have decided to stay in con con for a few days to rest up it has alot of memorys for me as in 2004 and 20007 sue and i stayed hear for a short time
