What do you mean? Stop traveling? Quite the opposite. After a great ride like this, I open the maps right away and start playing the "what-if" game. What-if, of course, pertains to money & time...

For example, now, courtesy of yeuop's Poland-Mongolia on XT600 Ride Report, I should be thinking about Poland to Mongolia... It could be, errrr, sulphurous! (You've got to read it to get it.)

Very nicely done...love the photo of the bike on the road with the river on the left, mountains background. Spectacular!

you've captured the 'feel' of Argentina and Chile perfectly, in particular Chile. The stray dogs, the shrines on the road, the Gauchos with their horses (and token stray dogs!) and not to mention the towering mountains.

Awesome RR, made me grin from ear to ear the whole way through it

Thumb Also available in Patagonia

When I went to Santiago, Chile I did a motorcycle rental with this people: http://www.samttours.com. They have all inclusive tours. Having a guide and a back-up truck is better solo ridding. If your motorcycle breaks down they will fix it on the spot. We crossed the Andes and in general I had an undescribable experience that you have to live for your self to know.

Well photographed and written RR. Thanks for the inspiration, Patagonia is now on my list.
