Container from Los Angeles, CA to Valparaiso - wanna go?

Howdy gang,
I'm planning on a ride from South America back to California this coming January - a retirement kickoff of sorts. A friend and I are shipping our bikes down to ride back. We're using Gaston from samericaxplorer to organize the shipping down. The latest (gu)estimate is the container leaves LA on 12/11/12 and arrives at Valparaiso on 1/11/13 (the exact dates will be close to these). Right now, we're at 3 bikes and another bike with side car. Price is around $1800. If we get more bikes, the price drops down , especially once it gets to at least 9 bikes. Anyone interested?

edit: Here's a link to his thread in vendors;

Beam me down - to Valparaiso

ha! nice catch!

well, the physics are complicated, but thankfully there is a 'time dial' on the cargo container. so it's pretty much just like every time travel sic-fi show you've ever seen.... ADVmototimetravel is expensive - hence we are looking for more riders to share the costs.

To God (Banana)
God never rode, motorcycles were created by a man. Riding is for every normal human being.

Beside riding and probably being more experienced than you , I tell you, my containers will keep going year round, my shipments all over the world will keep going and my rides too!!!

As you have advertised on the shipping section, keep helping everybody (and for free) ,good luck with that endeavor, it is not for you and it is not going to work. You will lose a lot of your time.

i like ham!

no, it's all cool. gaston's good. bananaman is good. i think some stuff is lost in translation as gaston is not a native english speaker, and sarcasm doesn't work so well on the internet.

what's important is that we are riding and adventuring!

You like it or not. But as usual your brain cannot react different, as always attacking with envy.

Keep your comments on the ghost Ferry, one day it will get through. Promise!! In the mean time my solutions are on another part of the world for this community.
I saw your naming yourself and somewhere "ADVGod". I love it , you really have ego problems................
Gaston, why are you such an ass? I was giving you a complement. It wasn't even a back-handed compliment.

Don't worry- I've learned my lesson. As far as I'm concerned, you really are nothing but a trolling spammer, and from now on, every time I see you hawking your business outside of Vendors...

And yes, I am an ADVGOD. 1) I actually ride. 2) I've completed the hat-trick: front page photo, sticky, and hall-of-wisdom. Now shut up and bring me some bacon. Or a beer. I'll be at my house in Camino de Cruces.
