    Your insurance company (in country) should be able document the bike is a total loss. I would try to work through them even if it is a mechanical failure.

    A solution to this problem is to use a Bonded Warehouse and suspend the importation while you are out of the country. It is not cheap to do. In Costa Rica the cost seems to be about $5 per day.
    Once you have delivered the bike to the warehouse, you can take their form to customs and they will suspend the TVIP. Reverse the process when you return.

    Wow! I think I'm going to rethink this whole plan, I'm going to rent a 250 tornado for $420 USD a week in Guatemala this winter, Maybe I'll just roll that way.

    That's pretty tough to beat.

    In other news...just did a quick blast down to TN week before last. Not a lot of time and a short time to get there as the song goes. Really made me appreciate the relaxed pace that 'ride, store, fly, repeat' allows me otherwise.

    When I used to work cross country I would rent out garages from old ladies off Craigslist in different parts.

    I would need to order and mail many things and it gives good locations for that. I imagine it would work for bikes as well.
