Glad you guys had good weather and were able to make it down to Batopilas. Best of luck on the rest of your journey!

Great ride report. Love the pics, and bike! If you don't mind me asking what bags are you using on your DR? Thanks.

Thanks nrspence. Those are Wolfman Expedition Dry saddlebags. The Wolfman stuff is top quality and they work well for me. I also use a SealLine dry bag strapped to the seat for additional storage. Wolfman makes some great dry duffles too, but I have several of the SealLine bags from kayaking and find they work pretty well.

Man, I can't believe how much work they have done on that road to Batopilas since May. Love that place.

Just read your RR - great trip you guys had. I'm planning to go back down again sometime soon and spend a week in the Copper Canyon area and visit many of the places you guys went to - can't wait to go back.

Great report on a quickie trip. Beautiful country.

You didn't go all the way from Maine to ride three days in Mexico, did you?

I'm not sure why, but I didn't expect to like your ride as much as I did.
That was really fun and very well put together. Thanks, that was great!

Heck no . . . I've been keeping the DR650 at my brother's house in AZ for the past year. I fly out regularly for 2-3 weeks at a time to explore the great southwest and Mexico. I've had so much fun I decided to bring another bike out. I left Maine last Saturday on an R1100GS and just arrived in AZ today. Can't wait to do some more exploring.

Well, I'm sure glad I was able to exceed your low expectations.

Thanks for the kind words guys - much appreciated.
