I am looking at doing a motorbike tour around South America, not immediately but certainly in a few years time. I was wondering if there is anyone in the group who has done something similar? I have a few questions if so. The trip would incorporate nearly all of South America.
1. Where would we the best place to buy a bike? If for example in Brazil is a Brazilian bike fine to take around the continent?
2. Is there anywhere of the beaten path which is a must. I'd look to take in most capital cities and main cities in each country but are there any gems people dont know about? Or great roads that must be ridden?
3. Would you advise camping or guesthouses/hostels etc?
4. Any other tips?
