Buenos Aires / Ushuaia/ North Start - Dec 23/ Jan 24

We have an outline plan to ship bike to Buenos Aires mid to late Dec’23 then ride south to Ushuaia then north up the other side. Two up / two old codgers. Anyone else heading that way, let us know.

Currently that’s my plan too. I’ll be shipping to Santiago. From
What I can figure out it’s a little cheaper but apparently far easier to release your bike from customs.

I'm starring in Colombia in November and doing it in the other direction (to Ushuaia then Buenos Aires). Be good to meet up on the road...

I am planning much the same, starting in Buenos Aires in early January. How are you getting your bike there? I have had little to no luck finding a shipper that will go from the US to Argentina.

Hi! I'm looking to do similar but shipping from UK to Chile as it seems their ports and customs clearance is cheaper and more reliable from there. We intend to start riding from January 2024.

Where are you looking to ship from?

Hi. Thanks for the responses and apologies for being off line. I tried shipping options from Canada and USA but nothing available. Revised plan is now to buy in Santiago and head off from there. I just signed up with SuziSantiago and hope to source a bike with their help. ETA Santiago approx first week Jan ‘24

I was shipping to Santiago from Heathrow. The best quote I had was £3995 arrival charges are around $250 US. Due to lack of aircraft space is a premium shipping costs are expensive.

I have had quotes for shipping to either the US or Canada for under £2000. I have decided due to the cost to delay my trip and ship to Canada and go from North to South.

What are your travel plans?
