The horses were headed to the barn :) We decided to leave Montevideo early to catch the 11:45 ship back to Buenos Aires.



Beautiful Summer morning. Perfect riding weather, no a cloud in the sky, simple road back to Colonia and all the preparation for shipping, and some final enjoyment in Buenos Aires!



Again, Love Uruguay and they also have free Moto passing of Paije (toll roads)



Parked our bikes out in front of the ship terminal to change our tickets..... "Grande Motos"



Then a quick check in and immigration out of Uruguay and into Argentina



All strapped down for the 1 hour ship to BA



Once off the ship in Argentina we needed to get our bike imported for the last time in South america!



And it was the friendliest Aduana experience of the entire trip so far. Our Aduana Agent was very funny. He "loooves America" it is "exxxxxceeellllent" Venice Beach "Exxxxxccceeelllent"



We had a great ride through Buenos Aires to get to the Apartment that we had rented. Have some great video of us enjoying the heavy traffic ..... and fun riding@! I Love it! Safety 3rd ask Claude





You can weave your way through traffic to the front where they have moto standing area right behind Pedestrian cross wakes. So very cool! Lovin it!



There is also the reality of a big city which is the "slum" area just outside of town. Seen it very often, but in the heat and humidity it would be a hard place to live.





It has been great riding with Claude. What is amazing is that as two totally different guys, meeting up and then riding for the past week. We had a great trip. We have very different outlooks, priorities and views on life. But we had a great time.

Thanks Claude for the great time riding in Uruguay and into Brazil. Too short but great memories none the less!
