defunct famous Italian motorcycle brand of that name) and the even funnier "Hacker". But also others that sound like Japanese-mongrel-bikes like "Yasuki" or "Hamazaki". Harley-Davidson, Ducati and the Japanese Four have dealerships here and one can buy BMW bikes through their car dealerships and Aprilias trhough the Alfa Romeo dealerships.

They also have a Facebook page. And two Uruguayan riders took part in this year's Himalayan Odyssey, they were the only ones not from India. Here's a picture of one of them with the Uruguayan flag,

Good luck to them!
