Hello, my name is Sam and this is my story of an 8 week motorcycle trip through South America, starting and ending in Santiago, Chile. I hope you enjoy it!
The trip covered 5 countries, 10 border crossings, and around 18,000km. The idea for our trip was hatched about 4 years ago, but the serious planning didn’t start until the summer of 2011. My dad and uncle were quickly on board and we spent a large part of the fall of 2011 getting our bikes ready. We rode a shake-down trip around Lake Huron in October. We crated the three bikes at our house in Michigan in December and delivered them to a trucking service that shipped them to Miami. From there they flew Centurion Air Cargo to Santiago International Airport.
