Hola Chilenos and ADVers,
I have somewhat dropped out of the ADV world for the past couple of years, due to work and diversions. I now find myself with a job in Antarctica at Palmer Station. I worked this particular deal so that I could ship my bike down to Punta Arenas and begin a South American transit.
Unfortunately, now I have the job, but haven't done my research. I am looking for shipping companies to get my crated bike to PA or Santiago. I have a crate builder that specializes in international export, so it will be certified and stamped.
Any recommendations of shops or warehousing that might store my bike for three months, until late October, if necessary?
Will I want offroad tires (bike is a 2009 KLR650) or mainly street tires for long carreterra? When I did Central America, I burned through a few sets of Dunlop 606s, however Metzeler Enduro 4s would have been fine.
Thanks for any recommendations,
