Meyers KTM started stalling within the first kilometer of the trip. We stopped at a petrol station hoping for octane booster in an attempt to cure the problem.

We stopped along the road a number of times in an effort to cure the intermittent stalling that Meyer was experiencing on Katie the KTM 640. It gave us a chance to stretch our legs but we were never able to cure the problem.

Our lunch stop was initially forced upon us by Katie stalling again. However we found a nice little restaurant next to the Rio Perana at a place called San Nicholas. A healthy salad and a cold Coke was a real treat.

Mike turning back to collect Gus’s dropped sunglasses. Didn’t see the ditch of mud! By the time we got to the sunglasses they had already become the proud new possession of some young Argentinians.

  1. Your trip looks great so far. Enjoy and don’t get “under” the wheels. All the best for the trip ahead, loads of fun and full tanks! Special regards to Meyer from Patricia and Sebastian in Germany

  2. Hi Guys
    It looks like everything is coming together. I’ve just gone through the blog in one go. I will now follow on a daily basis. Sad not to be with you all !! Enjoy Chile -no doubt it is going to get very chilly. Hope all the bikes are okay as it now gets remote. All the best
    cheers Royco.
