Day 419– 31st January 2010

Posted by TravellingStrom on January 31, 2010

Sunday – Buenos Aires, Argentina

Just a note here. I will be here in Buenos Aires for a week or so and will not be updating the blog every day, just maybe when/if something happens that is unusual or I get bored or whatever

Basically today I started to strip the bike down of things I wanted to keep. Stephen the potential buyer turned up around midday and went for a ride, he seems happy and the deal may go through. The bike he had originally intended to buy was involved in a crash and is useless and the rider still in hospital 😦 After the test ride, I just proceeded to strip it right down of all the hardware and panels. Most of the aftermarket electronic addons that I had installed, like heated grips, chain oiler, fusebox, power points etc I intend to send to Brisbane ready to be installed in my bike there.

As today was a Sunday, it was a quiet day, but the supermarket was open later on, so that allowed me to buy some tucker and beer 🙂 Work stopped during the evening and beer was consumed until all hours. There is no real rush as I found I needed some of the original bike parts from the US, plus I also needed to do a few repairs and those parts need to be ordered as well 🙂


Day –0 miles and km
Trip – 54,042 miles and 86,972 km

Cheers
