imagine you 'parked' one of the two out west for a year or two

I was thinking if I parked my R1200GS out west for a year or two (e.g. near Salt Lake City) to take advantage of all that riding out west has to offer without the 'drive out' then I would 'need' another big adventure bike here to ride. A WaterBoxer would be fun to accessorize .....

So does anyone have South America maps that they are bringing along so we can start planning for 2014?

It would be a fly-n-ride and probably starting in Chile and heading South to the tip, Keith did the shake down run with Compass Expeditions so we would do something like that except on our own.
Probably something like this.

So I think it is a plan to bring the other opposing twin bike into my good graces so that I will keep it and they can talk about engine oil and final drive stuff. I mean really who else would the adventure have to talk too, the parallel twin...not, the upright single....definitely not. So I think it is a well played and thought out plan by the fatherland to secure rights to the garage and grow the empire.

It looks like the front tire may be in today.

If you're not carefull they will be bringing one of the new watercooled twins in to the fold.

I'll see if I can find my maps

Motoadventura in Osorno are the folks we rented 650 singles from for the second half of our trip in SA. The first half of my adventure in SA was a three week shakedown trip with Compass Expeditions that started in La Paz Bolivia ended not far from Osorno. Then we took a bus to Osorno and picked up the 650s for a three week trip 'south' to Ushuaia. We dropped the bikes off in Punta Arenas and flew home from there. It was a great way to do a tour of Patagonia. I highly recommend it. I would love to do it again.
