I have some friends on a trip from Ushuia to Canada. They are currently about 350 kms northwest of Rio Gallegos. One of the bikes, a 650 VStrom has taken a rock and is leaking oil badly from the countershaft area. Does anyone know of a good bike repair shop in the area (Rio Gallegos or Commodoro)?

They got the bike into a shop in Comandante Luis Piedra Buena. Right now it looks like whatever got picked up somehow went between the countershaft sprocket and the chain and took out the clutch cable on the outside, the seal retainer on the inside and the drive chain adjuster at the back of the swingarm, The shop figures a couple of days to fix. So things are maybe not as bad as they first seemed.
