BMT 82: South America by Motorcycle with Casey Wong

Motorcycle South America
Casey Wong bought a motorcycle and shipped it to South America, where he proceeded to ride it from Colombia to Argentina, on his own.
In Ecuador he ran into a friend of mine, which prompted an introduction to me and eventually a few beers in person as he passed through Bariloche, where I happened to be living in Argentina. With the notorious Patagonian winds, questionable roads, and oncoming winter, I worried about his safety as he continued south.
A year later, we get to hear the complete story of Casey’s motorcycle adventures through South America, including best resources for traveling motorcyclists, how to ship a bike to South America, logistics and advice for the road, and what Casey always, always kept in stock on his bike, no matter what sort of challenges he faced.
