Which countries can I PARK my bike in temporarily?

Lots of people want to travel in "pieces" e.g. 3 weeks or 3 months on the road, park the bike, and continue later, next year, etc.

Please post where you are POSITIVE it's ok and for how long.

Canada - 12 months for sure, probably indefinitely as there is no check that you have left with it. When you LEAVE the country, there is NO check at all of you or the vehicle.

USA - same

Uruguay - 12 months

Officially, or what most people have been getting away with.

Argentina - from personal experience - up to 8 months provided you get an 8-month TIP on entry. Doubt whether that is according to the written law though.

Peru - by special application to Aduana with supporting medical or personal situation letter, we were granted 8 month suspension of the TIP.

Ecuador - said by FincaSommerwind that you can enter with the normal 90 day and then apply for a 180 day visa and then apply for the TIP to be extended to 180 days to match.

I've left foreign-plated bikes in Spain, Canada, Mexico and Argentina. Lots of other places I wouldn't hesitate to do so, but have no firsthand information.

In many countries where we can PARK our bikes in temporarily not necessary means that is accord to the laws. Sometimes as in Argentina is that nobody (usually) controls it when leaving without the vehicle. Normally the TVIP papers have a paragraph of the involved laws (maybe in small letters) so, people be aware!

RUSSIA

You can definitely leave your bike in Russia for the duration of your temporary import certificate, which you receive when you enter the country.

Typically these are issued for three months, but people should check.

Leaving a bike for longer than three months is possible under certain circumstances, but probably not feasible for most people and in any event:
1) the bike has to leave Russia at least once a year;
2) the temporary import cannot be extended beyond the duration of your visa or your right to stay under your visa; in other words if you have a three year visa but cannot stay in Russia longer than six months, you cannot extend it for more than three months, although you could then extend it again up to the one year limit.

I imagine French Guyana won't be a problem either as we never got any TIP or whatsoever.

In Croatia legally you can leave the bike for 6 months, but since there are no controls maybe that can be even more.

cheers

This also needs some extra information to be useful and that is whether your 'months at a time" exceeded the validity of the original TIP
