Apologies if it is hidden in here somewhere already but... I am planning to do my ride south in 3 or 4 legs. I work one month on then get one month off so the plan for the first leg is to get Vancouver to Costa Rica or southern mexico....lock up the bike with friends and fly back to work. Coming back to the bike in a months time to do it all over again getting to Peru next time....ect ect. Green on all this so hope one of you boys could tell me if I will have any problems with this in regards to customs with the bike? Once you import the bike into the country do you HAVE to leave with it? I have 2 passports (Can and NZ) so could use a different one to get out but thats a last resort as it gets complicated and risky. Anyone? Great thread, thanks for taking the time to post this stuff as it would be a steep learing curve without it! Many thanks!
