I'm glad you posed this. This is my planned route for my first trip, whenever I make it. I'm curious as to the distance and amount of time this would take on a 650 vstrom, price of "cheap' places to stay...the usual stupid questions by those who have no idea.

The entire route depicted below, all cuota today except for the soon to be opened 40D from DGO to MAZ, is, IMHO, safe for a gringo truck with a bike in the back. Usual caveats about daytime etc. apply.
That's 85 from Nuevo Laredo to Monterrey, and 40 everywhere else (40 runs Matamoros on the Gulf to Mazatlán on the Sea of Cortés - Cortez if you prefer)
