With the help of K7, I now have these tips in .pdf format. They can be found at this link for downloading and printing. (CA Wisdom in printable format)

I also went back and edited the first post to include the link.

My thanks to those adding their tips. Since I've never ridden the Baja, I did not know the rules for vehicle import and travel in the rest of Mexico did not apply there. Also, Pilot was correct in pointing out that at any border other than the US, you will have to process OUT of the country you are in, go a couple hundred yards, and then process INTO the next country. Usually departing is a lot easier than entering, but it is a time consuming process. I think Pilot did a 2 border day when he was running north solo (departing Costa Rica, across Nicaragua and into Honduras), but as a general rule that is a very difficult proposition and will kick your butt.
Ride to challenge yourself and to expand your horizons. But be warned, once you've ridden beyond the U.S. border, you might begin to realize that the world doesn't revolve around us......
