Thank you for the great info newbrider! That's all my questions answered!

PS. I have been looking at those as well but availability seems low right now! I'm going to search more tomorrow and hopefully test drive a tenere 250 if possible!

Hi NewbRider
Thanks for the clear and detailed explanations on how to buy a bike in Colombia and sell it in Chile. My plans go in the opposite direction. I have found a KTM in Chile and would like to sell it in Colombia after cruising SA. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to proceed. Regards from BCN.
Regarding the RE Himalayan I must say I took one of those through Northen India (Ladak) Nepal, China, Tibet, Bhutan and it performed incredibly well. Robust as hell.

Hey mate, happy to help. But need more detailed info. Chilean bike or foreign bike? But basically, all the info here applies the same going the other way.

Hey guys, thanks for all the info!
I'm heading to Colombia in a week (probably Bogota!) and will follow all these steps to buy a bike!
Super excited for the trip, my plan is to start in Colombia, spend at least 3 weeks there and then make my way down to Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia and then sell it there somewhere again after 3 months :-)

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
