    A friend of mine is headed to Chile for a month, starting in February. He's looking to beg, borrow, or buy a bike for use while he's there.

    He's aware that there some some rental outfits there, but has found the daily rates to be very steep.

    His ideal situation would be a bike swap with someone in Santiago. He'd borrow a bike from someone there for 30 days (returning it serviced, with new rubber), and then loan one of his 7 bikes (2 ktms, 3 guzzis, tiger, and a kawasaki) in the Pacific NW to the friendly Chilean to use for exporing the USA.

    He's also consider renting a bike from an individual, or buying a bike with the agreement to sell it back 30 days later, assuming it came back in good shape.

    He's an excellent rider (30 years), a really good guy, and would take excellent care of any bike.

    I you have any leads, thoughts, or suggestions, please let me know (I'll pass your comments on to him as he's already onroute to Chile).
