We will be round your place in June/July! We are planning to rent bikes from a company out of Gunnison (from here: http://www.rentmotorcyclescolorado.com).

It is very close to Denver I think! We are planning to be on the road for about 17 days!

Cheers,

Suggestion

Hey hey,

I am currently wrapping up a Denver to ushuia trip myself. I highly recommend Medellin Colombia, huaraz Peru, and el Cheltan Argentina. Do not cross the gap on the "sailboat" called metacommet

Oh and the salar de uyuni in Bolivia is a must.

Hit me up via personal msg with any logistical questions or whatever.

I'm taking off from San Francisco in mid-July and doing my first three months or so in the US, ultimately heading all the way down like you. I'm actually stopping in Denver, probably in late August / early Sept to visit friends, so keep me in mind. I'll have a ride report up on here by then too.

Edit - just realized I'm off by a year. Well, I'll still be in the area late this summer :)

By far the best place to rent bikes is houseofmotorrad.com in Denver. Best rental company, best bikes, best people. They bring the bikes to you and pick them up from you. Very simple, not even a taxi ride required.

I was just told about your adventure ride to South America by my brother. He was one of your first rental customers last year. Nice to see you and your dad doing such a great adventure. I will be following your ride via this site. I will be in Tierra del Fuego in about a month on my way to Antarctica on a photo. shoot. Will look for you in Ushuaia in early Feb.

Ride Far, Ride Safe.

Update

Just thought I would let everyone know that the trip is going great, and that we have a blog that is updated daily that you can access from our website at www.houseofmotorrad.com

Drop me a line if I can help anybody out with their trip or if you are on the road and want to meet up.

Question partner?

I'm beginning to put together my own length-of-S. America plan for '13 and , for various reasons, I'd prefer not doing it solo. Any chance you'd want to join up with someone for a portion of your trip?

Cheap (free) place to stay in Buenas Aires at the end of January 2013?

My father and I will be meeting up with my wife and her friend for part of the Argentina portion of the trip and we are looking for a place to stay while in the capital. Anybody have a contact?

Thanks,

Ben

I think Radioman is still in BA staying with another motorcyclist who is renting an apartment for the month. Maybe he can give some guidance.
