12th BMW Mexico InternationalConvention

We recently celebrated our 12th BMW Mexico International Convention.
It was the best organized event ever in the BMW Mexico History. It also broke all records since we had more than 700 participants, more than 500 bikes, more than 200 ladies travelling with us (more than 10 riding their own bike), more than 100 friends from other countries, etc.
The opening ceremony (Wednesday) took place in the "Centro Cultural Cabañas", in the heart of Guadalajara. For Thursday, we took the "Tequila Express" train to the world famous town where this spirit is made. For Friday we all rode to Puerto Vallarta, with a lunch stop in Mascota, a typical Mexican village. After we got in Vallarta, we had a party in the evening where a lot of prices were raffled, including the main one : a 2008 R 1200 GS Adventure. For saturday we enjoyed the beaches and had a seafod buffette for lunch. And for Sunday just the farewell to all our friends.
Let's take a look to some images :
