Get to a Castores warehouse (http://www.castores.com.mx/) in Puerto Vallarta or Tepic and strap them down to pallets and wrap them in plastic for shipment up to a border town. Rent a uhaul in the states and use it to pick up the bikes at the Castores warehouse in whatever border town you shipped to and haul them where ever you need to take them in the states. Flying into Tuscon and driving down to Nogales to pick up the bikes would probably be the easiest option. If you'd rather hire a pickup truck and driver to drive them straight to the border then that'd cost more. Once businesses are open tomorrow I can make a few phone calls for you to see what it would cost. There are car carrier services that would probably do it too. Whatever option you go with would probably involve getting your bikes down to Puerto Vallarta or up to Tepic by whatever means available. Probably some guy's pickup truck for $50. (extra points awarded for chicken bus though) Whatever you do, don't forget to cancel the TVIPs for both bikes when you leave or you'll have trouble when you come back to Mexico.
