Uruguay

Not all that surprisingly, i guess, you never hear much about Uruguay on this forum.

I am very close to accepting an offer of 9 months employment in Colonia, Uruguay.

Any inmates from Uruguay or anybody spent some time there?

Any good riding to be done?
Anybody know the prices and resale of bikes like GS, KLR, Africatwin, Vstrom 650, maybe even a NXR400?

I suspect that temporary importation of a Chilean regiustered bike would be complex, perhaps impossible for that time.?????

I had thought to show up driving from Chile in my Toyota HILUX with a bike on board but have been advised not to.

Or god forbid, perhaps I should just go and buy a cheap Chinese bike.....

I've heard Uruguay gives a year temp tourist vehicle import permit. Though if you're going to work there you will likely not be on a tourist visa. Probably best to enter as a tourist and have the bike temporary import paper. and later let your employer sort out your visa.
Though later if you want to renew the bike temp import permit they might raise an eyebrow if you have a non-immigrant work visa.

Podés entrar el vehículo como turista y renovar cuando se venza el plazo. Lo que no podés hacer es trabajar con el vehículo (esta situación está prevista específicamente en nuestra legislación). Es decir, podés trasladarte de un lugar a otro, pero no por ej. trabajar repartiendo encomiendas o transportando cargas dentro del territorio. Igual te conviene verificar los acuerdos que Chile ratificó con el Mercosur, porque he visto muchos chilenos en sus propios vehíiculos por acá.
Lo de comprar una moto para usar acá es buena idea, pero de las que nombraste, son escasas y caras, incluso la NX4, (usadas piden U$S 6.000). Actualmente la mas barata (relación calidad precio) es la Yamaha FZ16 a U$S 3.600 (0 km). De 250 cc. para arriba estan consideradas por la reglamentación como alta cilindrada y tienen impuestos exhorbitantes que las encarecen.
Saludos desde montevideo

Gracias Miguel.

Voy a salir manana en ruta a Uruguay en mi Hilux pero sin moto.

Tiene sentido tu idea de comprar algo menos que 250 cc, y prefiero evitar comprar algo de China. Revise la Yamaha y se ve bien.

Sabes algo de la marca Morelli?

Es facil vender de nuevo un moto usado, quizas con un ano de antiguedad y 6.000 km?

Hola, recién llegué del encuentro en São Lourenço do Sul.
Las motos usadas que no son muy exclusivas se venden rápido. Te puse como ejemplo la Yamaha, porque acá las que mantienen el valor de reventa normalmente son las japonesas. Para ir y venir al trabajo o algún viaje corto sirve una chinita, pero además de revenderla por la mitad del precio de compra, siempre se está propenso a alguna rotura inverosímil (esa es mi experiencia). A favor tienen que son muy baratas de repuestos.
Marca Morelli acá no hay. Lo más parecido es Megelli y es una china más que intentaron venderla como competencia de la Kawasaki Ninja 250 pero no funcionó el engaño.

I spent a little time in Colonia, couple of weeks but loved the place, lots to see and do. The riding is not that good from most peoples point of view, very flat but I thought the riding in Uruguay was great, fabulous coast line to explore, it's absolutely beautiful all the way up to the Brazil border and the country is beautiful with lots of places to camp. I wish I could go back there!
