Joinin' the party

I'm keeping my eye on this thread. I'm in SLC and was thinking about meandering south early next week. I've never ridden Mexico before and usually make up my plans on the fly, but Copper Canyon is my eventual goal. Hopefully I'll see some of you along the way.

Copper Canyon Snapshots from February







Rio Batopilas

The construction crew finalizing preparations to dynamite the hill side



The terror of 1,001 switchbacks



















Abandoned gas station along Highway 16 from Hermosillo to Creel



The blue horse taking a break from riding Highway 16, perhaps the most consistently curvy road in North America?

I took the same entry point and routes you described on my Harley Last November. The GS wasn't ready to go when I was.

Here is the link to my RR

Updated Copper Canyon Report

Last time I checked Youtube had muted my soundtrack. I hate it when that happens! Here's a link to the accompanied video:
