Day 414– 26th January 2010

Posted by TravellingStrom on January 26, 2010

Day 414– 26th January 2010
Tuesday – Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina


There you go, a rest day for me on our special day 🙂 And I did rest in between getting the blog up to date, I even sat around reading a book for a change and had a few beers of course 🙂 And this also gave me a chance to sort some planning for later on. I don’t plan a lot of things, but getting back home with or without the bike will take some effort.

I will say here that my original plan, thought, idea was to ride the bike south to the tip on the west coast, then ride it back up on the east coast and back into the US and sell the bike. But, how naive was I eh! I never thought it would take so much time to get this far. When I spent nearly a month in Mexico, I did then start to realise I did not have the time and so my next idea was to get as far as Buenos Aires and then fly the bike to the states and sell it. Well, that is still an option, along with selling it here in BA, or ride it further north to Brazil and sell it, or even store it here for a short period and then maybe bring it home with me.

So, with all those options spinning through my head, I am trying to plan for what happens if plan A, falls through and maybe plan B also is not a goer. So, today I got stuck into it and managed to achieve some or part of the processes involved. There is a good chance of a buyer in BA, from the US, so the paperwork issue would be minimal, but I cannot bank on that until the bike is seen and a price agreed upon.

That said, I still have time up my sleeve, but my brain has gone out of tourist mode until I can sort this issue out. IF, and it is a big IF, I sell it in BA, then I will be able to relax and be a tourist again, albeit by shanks pony rather than a bike.

Anyway, enough ramblings, tomorrow I head north and as I would rather get the bike into BA as soon as possible, I will do as long a day as needed, it will all depend on that dratted wind!

Day – 0 miles and 0 km
Trip – 52,970 miles and 85,247 km
