I have decided on a trip to Patagonia in 2019. I won’t be riding on my trusted V-Strom. This will be a guided 16 day tour from Puerto Mott/Puerto Varas to Ushuaia – similar to this video by Givi. The tour company, Moto Patagonia, was recommended by someone in the Atlanta ADV Riding meetup.
It looks like a total of 4 riders. A couple from Connecticut and our guide, Daniel. I’ll also be posting a Ride Report in the Adventure Rider, Epic Rides Forum.
Arrival Date and Location:
On or before November 30th, I will fly into Puerto Montt, Chile (International flight is to Santiago, Chile with a short domestic flight). The riding will begin at Puerto Varas.
Departure location is Punta Arenas on December 17.
This is a one-way ride with NO chase truck. Everything I bring with me must fit on the bike for the duration of the trip. The motorcycles are set up with full pannier systems and can hold street clothes and personal items, they are waterproof as well and can keep electronic gear dry. I’ll bring my motorcycle duffle which can be strapped to the top racks or can fit inside the panniers.
Riding Gear: Helmet, riding boots, riding jacket (mesh or rainproof?) and pants.
Personal Items: Sun screen, swim suit, base layers, sunglasses, tinted & un-tinted visor, satellite messenger, camera gear
