Yes I did receive a copy of your document. It is fine, as long when you got out of Chile you submitted a copy of such doc to Aduanas. (just in case).
THer most important issue there is closing the temporary admission permit. It might happen that they did the closing operation once they gave you this doc. This is something that you know.

Don't worry, your exiting have nothing to do with the bike. You have a document of sale expedited by Chilean Aduana, so, your case basically is over with that. In any case, keep that doc for a future trip to Chile. You have a proof.

Maps

Could anyone recommend particular maps for Chile and Argentina ? ( Preferably in English, but then again it probably makes no difference ).

We have a GPS, but as you know a paper map makes planning much easier.


Cheers,

Hi, look in internet Motrocycle rentals Chile and you should get a few. There is one company based in Osorno but they have offices in Santiago.
My recommendation is Valparaiso Area, Central Coast and Cajon del Maipo (south east Santiago). You could climb from Santiago to Farellones, ski area but everything is dry , however the road is interesting.
A trip a little bit North up to Tongoy should be interesting mainly along the coast as possible. Everything else is a little too much hours and express roads, not fun.

Hey Jose,
sorry for answering so late, hope you found a way to rent a bike already. http://www.motoaventura.cl/
I just came out of the hospital after a short encounter with a street dog 3 weeks ago.
result: Dog in Dog heaven, me with 6 broken ribs and a broken collarbone that hat to be fixed with a metal plate and 8 screws.
if you have any more questions pm me and I will get in touch with you.
Cheers
B.

For an uknown reason Chile cannot or won't control straight dogs population. Chile is famous for walking dogs on the streets. Even outside the gov. palace a few of them are hanging around.
I was leaving in Lima for a few month and I didn't notice dogs , this is considering double the population and a lot of marginal areas. Cuzco is unique in the world, a lot of them but 90 percent are pure breed.

So Boerjn, get better and be careful because there will be a lot of them on the years to come, ready to jump on your tires.

Bjoern!

Good to see you back in charge after your tumble!

We missed you. As you can see your thread went silent waiting for your return. I wanted you to break the news and you did it in style

Villarrica Volcano was not happy to hear you were brought down, especially since we paid it a visit that evening...

This is the morning after, as you lay under sedation in Temuco with Sarah by your side. I didn't know at this stage but Villarrica Volcan did, and she was not happy!



We even arranged an earthquake a few days later just to make sure that ALL dogs around Chile stay out of your way from now on.

As soon as we heard that you were pulling through things calmed down a little....



We all wish you well in your recovery.

Geoff

Hey Geoff,
Thank’s for your kind words and the amazing pictures you posted from the area we rode together! The beauty of nature for sure is one of the main reasons why I am still living here in Chile after 11 years. I am recovering alright, head is ok again, at least not worse than before and the bones are healing ok, so Its just a matter of time. Hope you are doing good on the island and am looking forward to your next visit in the area.
Ride on!!
B.

Tico en Chile

Hey guys!

I am a Costarrican guy, My girlfriend lives here in Santiago, so I am planning to bring my bike down here next spring.

I have tons of questions..... but, for now, just a few for you..

1. How long could I keep my bike in the country without a problem?
2. Do I need an international license to get into Chile?
3. It's really cold to ride from Arica to Santiago in October?

Gracias desde ahora,

Pura vida!

1. Up to 90 days , with extension for another 90 days but you must ask for extension before is due. For that you go to any Customs (OIRS office) office anywhere in Chile. Look for 'aduanas.cl"
2. You can use yours DL or international license if you want. Most of the S.A. countries validate your own driver license.
3. Nope, it is not so cold , except at night because the desert lose the heat fairly fast after sunset and overnight. The Atacama desert basically end around Ovalle. From there to south things get greener and warmer.
Do not attempt to ride at night along Atacama or crossing the Andes. It could be lethal, freezing temperatures and desolation for a hundred kilometers. I've been 3-4 times all along Chile from Arica to Santiago and even in summer is cold at night.

September start spring in Central Chile. early morning are somehow cold (like 10 to12 Celsius) but during the day temperature is good and warmer.
