3 Months Patagonia There and Back again...

Hi there,

my trip is done since almost one year and now after having a drink a watching the pics i made i decided to share the trip with you.
I rember well when i started dreaming of a trip to South America. I was googling a lot about the countries, bikes, equipment and stories and i found a lot here. I was reading the ride reports on this forum and the dream got bigger and bigger and then i asked my boss for 3 moths unpaid Holidays...and got them!

And here is my ride Report.

Chile - Argentina - Paraguay - Brasil - Uruguay

Please apologize any type mistakes because im not a native Speaker...but who cares about languages ;-)

got it ;-)
I started my journey in Santiago de Chile and then i went to Valparaiso to get my bike. I found a biker hostel called http://villakunterbuntvalpo.blogspot.ch/ and there i found a good place to connect with other bikers and they supported me to do the customs things and after some days i got my bike new and healthy as it was at that time ;-)

as you always meet other bikers at gas stations i met a 58 year old isrealian guy somewhere near Osorno and we planned to meet in Puerto Montt to do the Carreterra Austral together....but before that i went to Petrohue and then the nothern part of the Carreterra back to Puerto Montt.



and i found These roads...and my F 800 GS had some work to do ;-)

Back in Puerto Montt i found Gabriel and took a cute hostel beside. It was run by a chilenian artist who has a husband from switzerland (which is my license plate - im german ling in switzerland) so i recommend Hostal Suizo ;-)

Yeah after agreat stay Gabriel and me began with the Carreterra taking some roads and ferries. Gabriel got a Little bit dirty in his face...he always rode behind with open helmet ;-)



he was doing the trip on a V-Strom with street tires so i had a lot of respect....


and now we all started to get dirty ;-)

the next day ended up shitty...Gabriel lost his rear brake because a bolt was broken and he had to proceed 50 km to the next small village with just the front brake..pretty tricky on dirt roads.
And i got a shower with an ugly mixture of oil and coolant...

but before that... the nice Carreterra

But unfortunately we had to proceed that way



we found a Transporter who got us six hours to the next town with a bike mechanic. And his diagnosis on my bike was the cylinder head gasket...i found it strange to happen to a new bike but i didnt know it better...i was the noob and he was the mechanic...so i ordered that part. BMW Chile didnt have it so it had to be shipped from Germany and it would take 2 weeks. I said i try to get it faster and happily we met another Israelian biker who rode with the BMW Group Manager of Argentina a month before and he built up the contact. The next day he applied and gave me the contact of his chief mechanic who found the part somewhere in his dealer net and he said it would take a week...yeah better than two. Gabriels brake was fixed easily and he decided to go on because he had an appointment. He was a good fellow and i was pretty sad when he went and i had to stay there and wait for the gasket. But it was good to stay in Coyhaique for a week after 3 weeks biking every day. But i was checking the mechanic frequently to see my bike ;-)
