Free camping at the police station. Well done!
Your reports are fabulous, and no doubt great reports are in the making. We're proud of you.
Via con Tania, Via con Dios.
I am really enjoying your ride report, just the thing to get me through this Missouri Winter.
I am so going to miss laughing every time I see your ridiculously overloaded bike! I have to know though, did you ever used all that crap you carried to Argentina?
I didn't use the blender near as much as i hoped too....but damn, I made some good margartitas when that thing came out of the action packer!!!
I made it through without using the spare tubes or other spare parts for the bike...other than that, I used everything else....
I have new respect for the Kawi. I'm sure that if I loaded my 1150GS like that a broken subframe would follow in short order.
I wish you well for the next phase of your adventure. From the pictures I'm not surprised that you were in a hurry to get to BA.
the KLR is a tough bike!!! I ran into some gnarly potholes, open man hole covers, curbs, cars, trucks, dogs, people while fully overloaded and the bike never hesitated...
...and it ran ok at almost 16,000ft!!!
I'll miss that moto.....
For some reasons, the majority of travelers choose BMW GS's (from 650 to 1200) and until they get to Argentina they make a numerous dealer (stealer) stops in-between, plus all sorts of road repairs.
Yet Jap bikes are so low-maintenance. Are they really more reliable than the German bike, and the bimer is just a trend, or is there something else in there? <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
Every BMW rider I talked to on this trip had what I consider a major repair along the way (except for the Dakar 650, it was just shedding parts like a molting bird sheds feathers.) There were GS 800s with blown engines, bent rims, blown shocks, screwed up electronics, and an intake system that fell apart and got sucked into the engine.
they ALL had their bikes into a dealer at least once trying to get things fixed.
Buenos Aires....the Paris of South America.....
Some of the old parts of the city do look at lot like Paris....
tango in the middle of the widest avenue in the world!!!
what tango is supposed to look like....
The best of times in Buenos Aires....
I've traveled 32.000 Km in the last year with my BMW G650GS (Argentina, Uruguay and Chile) with no issues to complain other than a bad battery. Even if it is a BMW you must give some maintenance. They are good but not undestructible.
Nice trip of yours, enjoy Argentina.
We need more pictures!
After hauling a duffle bag with nice clothes in it all across 14+/- countries and two continents, I finally get to wear them!!!
Danced until 5am!! The dance club/bar district area was still packed full at that time....Tania said some clubs are still full well into the morning!!!
Huh, think I'd have tried to get home by 8PM and "dance" until well into the morning.
