    You will love BA!. For us was definitely a rewarding rest and a good city to walk around and get to know. Ive been to BA before and took taxis and buses, but this time we got around on our bikes and then waking, that is a much better experience!.

    We wanted also to go to Mar del Plata, but could because we had too little time. This is where people from BA go for their holidays. They say its good. Its for party seekers.

    Another miserable day in the Pampas :baldy.

    On the plus side we are less than 200 miles from Buenos Aires :D .

    It took me a few days, but I finally made it and read the whole thread. I invested some of the time I have to study (exams period at the moment) but it was worth it: you two are lucky guys indeed, because you are living the dream of most of us, and we are lucky too because you are sharing it with us. I just wanted to say, in this final part of your trip, THANK YOU. May your last kilometers be safe, and your flight home cheap!


    PD: De vuelta a su vida normal, no olviden poner en su CV que hablan español! :thumbup

    I guess you don't say that in America, although it's pretty common here in Europe. Next time I'll say "¡es bueno saber español para encontrar un trabajo! :D

    Well we made it to Buenos Aires. The ride is over. Normally I´d try to say something a bit more profound at this juncture, but Im tired and smelly... so maybe tomorrow. I will post up the remaining pics I took from the ride sometime soon along with shots from Bueos Aires.

    I´d like to thank everyone who has been following along offering comments, wisdom and advice... and especially those folks that gave us a bit of dough to see that much more of Argentina. :clap

    It´s been a great ride.

    Nice trip brothers S. Glad you have been taking us along !! The narration, pictures, B.S. and genuine honesty of the whole trip has been a pleasure to be a part of.

    BUT---CRAP--- now what will I do for awesome reading material when work is slow and I am bored.

    Thanks again brothers S. and have a safe flight home

    Hey Guys! :freaky

    Congrats on reaching the end of the road!
    You mentioned visiting San Fran at some point after you get home.

    This is a huge thread and I am pretty sure there are some SF Bay Area riders who have been following along.

    I'd guess some would love to host a meet up here in The City while you're here. Perhaps a few Beers and Tamales at Zeitgeist? .... or the Ace Cafe? both fun biker bars in San Fran. (not HD bikers:lol3 ).

    Any Bay area/SF based ADV'er's (or HUBB members) up for a Sequin Bros. rendezvous?

    Anyway, if you guys get free time when you're here, maybe you'd like to meet up! Let me know your schedule once your back home and perhaps we can set something up?

    Cheers! :beer

    Great trip guys!!! :bow Thank you for taking us along.:lurk It has really help for those of us stuck in the cold snowy weather without being able to ride. Thank you for all of the time you have put into keeping us with you. Have a safe flight home and try to enjoy the boring part of life, making money for your next trip!:evil Great job and maybe you can write a book and sell it to make your next trip happen sooner.
