I live in Rio and I am going to Ushuaia next December.

@MitchSMA - I saw that San Martin is near to Bariloche. I will probably spent the day (13/Dec) in Bariloche.

See you.

Welcome Don! Nice to see more and more Chilenos on this site! I lived in La Serena for a while in 2012, and toured through the south and central parts of Chile as well. Have you taken your bike up the pass and over into Mendoza? Curious to know how the bike ran at the higher elevations?

Yeah right! I had traveled several times to Mendoza in Argentina, on differents bikes: Honda NX4, Yamaha FZ6 and this one, Versys 650. The Honda one had some trouble with the altitude because of the carburator but nothing too complicated but the other ones doesn't had any issue onto the "Los libertadores" fence

Best regards man!
