Thanks. Good question. I expected to be told that the motorcycles needed to be washed for shipping or arrival inspection but it never happen. Maybe because they were not dripping with caked mud it wasn't an issue.

You guys made riding to Ushuaia look... easy.



Dakar Motos- where weirdos feel normal.

Awesome report guys !! Incredible adventure you two had. One day i hope to make it all the way down myself. Until then though seeing as you guys and myself are geographically near one another, maybe if you two plan any sort of (highway) adventure for this summer i would love to tag along on the old goldwinger...
keep in touch

Later

Outstanding. Read as many reports as you can handle. Different people see different things and its a real value to get a broad perspective. It will help you to set priorities on what you want to see in each country or region. Some of it is hyped garbage and some are don't miss destinations. I'm sure you have noticed Bananaman's collection of latin Reports. It is a great resouce (Thanks bananaman). I read a lot of them before my trip and it helped tremendously. Same with the reports on Alaska.

looking forward to seeing your report.

Apologize to those that sent me PMs asking questions over the last year. Check your PM. I'm caught up responding.

Thanks.

Been distracted for a while....
