Nothing much happened but for posterity sake here’s a short writeup of the final few days with the piggie. Heading out for Caleta Olivia, had arrived on new years eve. Luckily my hostel/hotel was pretty quiet, and I crashed out early, celebrating new years asleep and alone in the middle of nowhere! This wasn’t actually too bad, I’m not overly sentimental about the date itself! No pictures of the road as its all the same straight, flat, boring stuff. Instead of interesting turn off points and sightseeing, my days are punctuated by petrol station stops, loading the next one into the GPS so I don’t have to see a “700 km to go”, rather just “200”. Breaking up long days into more manageable chunks works in marathons and long bicycle rides – same method works here too! Puerto Madryn was weird – no gringo tourism but lots of local tourists there to see the beaches. Arriving without food on a public holiday is dangerous because here a public holiday actually means that everything is shut, making starving for the day a real possibility. Luckily a group of welcoming Brazilians and Argentinians were doing a huge cook up and invited me in. We all ate as much as we could and there was still a few bits various animals left over! From Puerto Madryn I rode to the Refugio for motoviajeros in Argerich, near Bahia Blanca. This was a strange experience as I the owner was super super friendly, but spoke the most unintelligible spanish of the entire trip. At night there were up to 25 people all visiting for a big cook up, and I ended up crashing out early, too tired to speak any decent spanish with such a large group. They all love the beaten up KLR though! Yesterday I arrived in Buenos Aires and immediately met up with a local I was speaking to about selling the bike. He is just using it for parts (he has three others!) so I don’t have to worry about a hapless overlander getting stuck at a border crossing, or the engine eating itself in the middle of a desert somewhere! This gives some piece of mind as the bike was definitely heading towards some major mechanical work given it had one more than 30,000km without any major work. I sold it for $2300 USD including the GPS (300 extra), bent crashbars and skid plate, racks. I’m pretty happy as I bought the bike three years ago for almost that much, and it was going to cost at least $2500 USD to get the bike home again. I’ll go home and chuck all my gear back on another KLR and be back at it! I look happy but inside I’m already missing her….
