HI ADVRIDERS
FIRST AT ALL, I WOULD LIKE TO APOLOGIZE THE MANY MISTAKES I WILL DO WRITING THIS RR, I M NOT AN ENGLISH SPOKEN.

2010 Oct 8,9 and 10 there will be the Transalp National meeting in Neuquen, Argentina.
We are 2 up Chilean on a Transalp 650.
october 5 we will begin this trip. We are going to ride around 2.000 kms that offer many diferents landscapes we want to share with you
such as Pacific ocean, central valley, Andes range, lakes, rivers, volcanos, Argentinean patagonia ...
Hope you enjoy.

My wife : Flor
and me



the motorbike Transalp 650



Yesterday was the day for money exchange
we bought "pesos argentinos"
100 argentinean pesos = +- 25 dollars

and wue bought an insurance policy
no way to get in Argentina wothout this. Mine was 20 dollars per 5 days



and today was the day to setup luggage and check the bike

Day 1 "PACIFIC OCEAN"
Finally the day has arrived.
October 5 we left Viña del Mar in a warm and sunny day.
We decided ro rode toward the south using the road alongside Pacific ocean. This way we were
able to visit some village next to the sea ( San Antonio, La Boca, Pichilemu )
The coastal roads was built through and along the coastal tange. Therefore it is up and down and very twisty .

Pictures in the next message.

Nice Ride

Hola y buena suerte!

Nice pics and introduction to your RR. The coast of Chile looks like a great place to ride. Keep the pics coming!

I am looking to rent a TransAlp in Buenos Aires and then ride to Bariloche. But with the recent eruption of the volcano nearby, those plans may have to change. Let us know how the volcano has affected the area of Neuquen.

HAVE A SAFE RIDE!!
