From January 7th to February 20th, 2014
**(2) 2008 Full equipped young KLR 650s available to any rider join us.
**Take your own motorcycle on our shipment to Valparaiso and ride with us.
**Go on your own and shipping your bike on sharing basis

The plan is leaving the bikes in Punta Arenas, Patagonia and possible coming back to Santiago through Buenos Aires .
We have a planned route, a nice one, trying to cross a lot of national parks both Chile and Argentina, mostly on ripio (gravel) roads, avoiding most of the populated cities, except those must do.

What you have to do?. Just fly to Chile beginning January, meet us in Valparaiso for the paperwork , then we are on our way.

We are going 4-5 people max, for not complicating things. Overall is a team ride to have fun.

Let us know and we'll give you more details at samericaxplorer@gmal.com

Looking for Info on Shipping/Air or Sea from Panama back to LA

We have been planning a round trip on our bikes from LA to Panama in Nov 2104 thru January 2015. Now it looks like we may not have all that time available to us. So, riding down and shipping back looks like a good alternative.

Any advice, suggestions etc. would be gratefully received.

Finally Colombia- Panama Ferry!

Colombia y Panamá estarán conectados desde octubre a través de un ferryEfe | Panamá | Publicado el 22 de agosto de 2014

Colombia y Panamá estarán conectados a partir de octubre próximo a través de un ferry, que cubrirá la ruta marítima entre Cartagena y Colón, informó este viernes el gerente general de la empresa turística Colón 2000, Augusto Terracina.

"Queremos conectar las Américas y aumentar el intercambio comercial entre los dos continentes a través de esta ruta, que actualmente solo se realiza con transporte de cruceros y de carga", señaló Terracina a Efe.

Precisó que el ferry que iniciará servicios comerciales el 24 de octubre, tiene capacidad para 1.500 personas, 500 automóviles y 100 contenedores de 40 pies, además de instalaciones especiales para las mascotas.

Terracina explicó que el trayecto entre las dos ciudades caribeñas se registrará entre lunes y jueves, ya que de viernes a domingo se realizará un crucero desde Colón (Panamá) hacia la provincia de Bocas del Toro.

El proyecto permitirá no solo viajes de turismo sino también efectuar compras de grandes dimensiones, que podrán ser transportadas en los contenedores del ferry.

El costo de la travesía en cubierta, que dura aproximadamente 18 horas, será 99 dólares por trayecto, y se ofrecerá cabinas para una, dos, tres y cuatro personas con precios que inician en 140 dólares, en tanto que el crucero tiene un costo de 277 dólares.

Sostuvo que la empresa se ha reunido con las autoridades panameñas y próximamente lo harán con las colombianas, con la intención de cumplir con los procedimientos migratorios, aduaneros, antinarcóticos, policiales y de cuarentena.

Según un boletín de prensa de la empresa, se calcula que el ferry podría traer a Colón un aproximado de 100.000 turistas suramericanos anualmente y unas 40.000 personas a Bocas del Toro por año.

Las primeras travesías por ferry entre los puertos de Colón y Cartagena para promover el comercio y el turismo en ambos países se registraron entre los años de 1994 y 1997, pero no tuvieron el éxito deseado por diversos factores.

Um, excuse me... I think you want to delete this post, right? On account of him robbing you, not tying the bikes down, not filling out the paperwork, taking 10 months to get your bikes back, and doubling the fees. Right?

Edit: I think Tuckers will be editing their post to accurately describe their experience.

So if your experience was as disasterous as I've heard people say it was, why are you leaving the contact information there? Why not delete the post as recommended? I know the answer to this but no way to put it that doesn't look like an attack, so won't bother.

Ship from Jacksonville, FL to San Jose, Costa Rica.

Hello,

I am currently near San Isidro de El General, Costa Rica. I have a bike in Jacksonville, FL that I would like to have shipped down here. I will be attempting to permanently import the bike if possible. I know some of the rules changes on the first of this year.

The bike is a 1998 Suzuki DR-350. It currently cannot pass RTV as it has no turn signals, but the wiring is there.

Any advice or input would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Share container to Peru or Chile Fall 2015

Hi, we have space for two or three additional bikes in a 20 ft container from Houston to Chile next fall. We have two bikes confirmed and room for a couple more. Now is the time to make your arrangements if you want to ride South America next winter (their summer).

Once in Chile and out of customs, you are on your own to go wherever you want. Some start their trans-America ride in Chile and work their way north, others leave their bike down there, returning every six months to ride, still others ride and explore for a month or three, then ship their bike to the next continent they want to explore.

Shipping by container is a more secure way to go. I know, I container shipped my bike to Chile with three others in 2010 with no problems. The lock we placed on the container in the US was still undisturbed at the port in Chile.

Since I live in NW Houston, can coordinate the storing of the bikes before loading in the container the month prior to departure.

Cost? That depends on the final number of bikes. Whatever the final cost is, we will divide the cost of the container among those going. (Roughly figure $1500 per bike. Firmer numbers will be gotten closer to departure).

Talk to your best bud and start planning your trip to South America now. Once the space is filled, that's it.

PM me if interested. We'll talk off line.

Thanks
Ride safe
CCjon

We are supporting CCjon , old client and good friend our logistics expertise offering a 20ft container from Houston to Chile bound September 2015 . (See page 1 for more details).

The planned route is Houston to Arica (Chile)- Peru (Cusco area), then Bolivia , Chile ending in Santiago. Another option is Valparaiso Port down to Patagonia.

Eh? Has anyone shipped from Panama to US?

Has anyone succeeded in shipping from Panama back to the US? Florida, Texas or California? Air, container or RoRo?

I see inquiries but never help replies or report of success.

After 10 months on the road it may be nice to skip the central border hassle this time. Wonder how much tourist revenue Central America loses because of all the 'helpers' who fleece travelers at borders?

Thanx in advance,
Jay
