In time for the Dakar Rally (Peru sand photo above), “THE RIDE STUFF ADVENTURE” is a small group of extreme adventurists and some of us in SE Asia have an opportunity. Fly out of Bangkok to Colombia, purchase motorcycles and travel, unsupported, solo or with the group, to points south and east. All of the Dakar Rally this year will be in Peru. Disposing of the motorcycles and flying back to Start point. This saves the big $s and hassles of shipping and clearing customs and time limitation for Thai motorcycles out of Thailand. Recommended is the purchase of a smaller displacement (125-250cc) motorcycle and a week to outfit and secure paperwork, in Colombia (not a bad place to “tourist” for some days).

This is no beginner’s adventure tour. Invitational applicants should be experienced in international motorcycle travel, skilled in motorcycle maintenance and operation, well funded, not jingoistic or xenophobic, culturally flexible and be able to secure visas if needed for Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Argentina. South America has a wide array of "motos," many not seen off the continent, like the below:

Buying an AKT 125 cc motorcycle at the local appliance store as seen above.

"Don't need any expensive German imported panniers, just buy a big top case off a local delivery guy for some cash " says one of the experienced entrants with The Ride Stuff. [Ed note: Only seen in Colombia were the padded front crash bar protectors, to either keep from scratching the crash bars or scratching cars when lane splitting.]

Allowing a week to outfit the motorcycle gives some time for local shopping at the mall, "touristing" as noted above. Photo below is an example of one entrant's interest in "shopping at the mall" in Colombia.
