Hi there ! As a new comer I am impress about the quality and volume of information that are here shared, all with a common goal: help the other riders This is why I write here, looking for some help :) Target: a tour of South America on bike Me and my girlfriend will land in 2 weeks in Buenos Aires and we want to buy a bike and start exploring. The plane tickets are already bought :) I have decided not to ship my bike because from this part of Europe is very expensive. I am asking for your help as regards the best advice regarding buying a bike from south america. I have red a lot of reviews but from this and other forums but still I don t know how is the best for me: 1. to buy the bike registered in south american (argentina, brazil, paraguay) 1.a. the bike owner is a argentinian, brazilia, paraguean 1.b. the bike owner is a traveller (European like me, American or Australian) 2. to buy the bike registered outside of south america (Europe, America, Australia, etc) What do you think ? which one is trouble free at the custom, less money payed to police / border. What papers are necessary to carry with me in order to be ok ? A lot of people are traveling in South America and, the ones who want to buy a bike from there, have the same questions as me :) Thank you for your attention & feedback :) All I know is that I want to start exploring this beautiful part of our world !
