Thanks Acampao for all these infos.

Once you find a buyer, papers in notary will take about 10-15 minutes, and in customs 5 (I gave my original title and a copy of my passport)
The buyer paid me in $100 bill in the notary.
My buyer took a risk that if there is something wrong with the bike (stolen?) it takes customs about a week to find out if the bike/seller is clean. Meanwhile the bike stays in a warehouse located just in front of customs. I think the process of importing the bike will take about 3 weeks.

Arno et al,

How did you guys go about finding a buyer? Im toying with the idea of letting Adrianna (my bike) go to another rider.

Still have about 2 months to find a buyer, so Im not rushed. Have already posted here in the FM and over at the hubb

I know someone that could line you up with a buyer.

It is a sad moment... You re thinking about selling Adrianna.....
Anyway, I went to 2 mechanics north of the entrance of the cemetary,a Honda dealer west of cemetary. Another mechanic left side of independencia, 3 -4 block from waterfront.
One of the mechanic in front of the cemetary found me a buyer...
By the way, Tyler just sold his Russian Beast a few days ago in PA....
Good luck

Returned from Ushuaia at 9 last night to Punta Arenas. Now have cash and Aduana papers. Put it in an Aduana garage where I saw 3 other bikes with CA plates. Hope everything goes smooth at the border...

Does your buyer know you still plan on driving into the ocean? Better if its in his name when you do it.

Send me that helpers name if you can, I got a couple feelers out there.

Whoever is interested let us know . This year also I am planning to got with the group and ride south till P.Arenas where I am going to deliver a bike.

Yuo can check on the sticky threads about SHIPPING and get our offers and cost.
Yuck. I don't like spam.

I thought you'd been banned from pimping your company outside of vendors?

Post about anything Latin America related and Gaston finds a way to turn in into a shipping thread.

On another note, Im in PA right now looking for a buyer, and Ive run into a local here who runs a moto travel compnay. Hes going to try to help me build a crate, and were going to try to air freight it with Lan.

Ill keep you guys updated on my experience. Im looking at many options at this point.

Would be great to have another option other than Dakar out of BsAs.

It seems to me like the discount you have to give in order to sell locally is about the same as the cost of air freight home.

As awesome as Dakar Motos is, I used a plain-old no-name freight forwarder. And I didn't need a crate. I just took off the front wheel, took off the windshield, took out the battery, and strapped everything to a pallet.

So you met Alejandro at Motoaventura? If not you should, he is sending back north their bikes all the time. I don't think there is air freight available. Even if you contract air freight anything heavier than 150kgs will be trucked between Santiago and Punta Arenas.

True a few years ago, unless you want to spend tons of money.

What I meant was that the cost of airfreight from Buenos Aires to Chicago was about the same amount as what I'd have had to discount my bike if I'd wanted to sell it on the black market in Argentina.

Bananaman is in Panama I think, But Im in Punta Arenas. I met Alejandro (and Dciky Coutts, Gonzalo and just about everyone else worth knowing in the bike world here - though you and Salva Ive still yet to meet).

Spoke with Lan, got a quote to LAX which included trucking to Santiago and it was a good price. I just have to build a crate, which a friend of Alejandros is helping me build. Should come close to what Dakar is charging right now to send me home.

The reason im looking here, is that I would need a new chain, sprocket, rear sprocket and tire to get to BsAs. Id rather just bring all the stuff I really want to put on there, for half the price and install it in LAX when I pick up the bike, plus then I wouldnt have to ride the 3 to BsAs.

Ill take you up on that drink, Im at Hostal Independencia on Independencia and Espana, yellow REI tent! Ill be here until Monday or Tuesday...

I'm in Madison. I bounce between here and Panama.

When I shipped home from Buenos Aures, Dakar Motos was a few hundred dollars cheaper than the company I used, but I was in a hurry. I was over due back in Wisconsin, and under budget, so I went with what was expedient.

You guys can all come to the Latin America Rider Rallye. There's always a group of guys with end-of-ride-itis. I'll take you up on those beers!
