Matt here, that young Aussie guy.
Was a bit of a paper fight. But got the tourist card in the end.
Made it to Mainland and sweating up a storm. Humid as hell down here.
Meet a couple in La Paz with the same problem as me. But one of them also did not have the original paper work for her bike. If only she knew of your little trick. Think she may have flown back to San Diego to get the original title.
Hope to bump into you guys again.
Enjoy the ride.
Great to hear from you Matt, I was only talking to Ev this morning about you and that we never heard anything so it's great you were able to get it sorted. We are still in Baja staying in some marine resort down the coast from La Paz just chilling out, had some fun riding over the last few days.
Ride safely bud and maybe our paths will cross somewhere along the line again.
