Hope you get/had a chance to visit the main plaza in Mendoza. It is a lively fun place with street performers, craftsmen, and some great restaurants with outdoor seating. Food and wine are excellent. $62 or so bucks a day is not bad. I think it has been costing me $80 or so on a trip from Colorado to California and back. That is not including the ga$ and eventual maintenance on the moto. The road life has its price but remains priceless.
