Great adventure ride opportunities like this don’t come along very often. Compass Expeditions needs some BMW F 700 GS bikes moved from La Paz, Bolivia through to Pucon in Chile over 14 days and that’s good news for anyone who ever wanted to ride the continent without joining an organised tour.
Not that Compass Expeditions is not a good tour company to ride with. I did the Charley Boorman Outback Tour last year and found it very well organised. I’d gladly do another adventure ride with these professional operators.
But if organised tours are not your thing, you are in luck as this adventure ride will only cost $1500 for this tour (plus security deposit), which is much less than organised tours.
The bikes are available from September 29 and come with full protection bars and Heidenau K60 Scout tyres so they are ready to handle on and off-road conditions. Bikes are fitted with top boxes but no panniers so you would need to take waterproof bags to strap to the bike to carry your belongings. However, if you want, the top boxes can be removed to allow more space for soft luggage packs.
Riders will be able to determine the route. the choices include the famous Uyuni Salt Flats, Atacama Desert or any of the other amazing scenic options, so long as you are in Pucon, Chile, within 14 days. Bikes are available individually or as a group.
