Customer Experiences

"We arranged for a KLR from Pucon (Villarica) to Punta Arenas that we rode to Ushuaia and Caleta Gonzalo among many other side trips. All the rental and pick-up/drop-off coordination went smoothly. The route information and specific recommendations we received from Eric and Ulli were excellent. We had a tremendous adventure covering about 3,500 miles including about 1,500 miles of rippa [ripio]. The bike held up fine with the requisite dirt bike attention to maintenance. We did carry additional fuel and were glad we did. Tools and extra fuel are advised. The experience is a life-time motorcycle adventure with more excitement than the Alps and more sophistication than Baja.

Reservations are advised for the finer places (like Torres del Paine) since the lodging inventory is not extensive and there is a fair amount of tourism in the popular locations during their summer season. Getting reservations made takes lead time and commitment.
Although we have ridden in snow and all the worst conditions mountainous environments have offer in our gear (I have Klim and my wife has Aerostich), we anticipated this might be more challenging because of the extended time in higher coastal latitudes similar to South East Alaska. We brought additional rain pants and jackets to go over our regular riding gear. It turned out we had almost no rain (just lucky). But we used this gear for additional wind protection when the temperatures got low. The winds are a key variable here unlike anywhere else I have ridden both for wind chill and fuel consumption. Additional top layer clothing was a great benefit on our trip. We were always comfortable.

RIDE Adventures made it all possible. Patagonian scenery is as beautiful as it gets. The riding is fantastic. We are tremendously pleased with our experience. Thank you."

- Great photo, Mike and Kathy! The Bradfords had some great weather on their Self-Guided "Fly & Ride Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego & Ushuaia!" motorcycle trip, even for important moments like this one in front of Los Cuernos (The Horns) of Torres del Paine National Park, along side of Lago Pehoe.
