I'm loading the 690 in the back of my van and driving to MX.
The Maine root plan is great, just won't work for me or my schedule.
No brainer for you though I figured.

You are an ANIMAL! Let's hope you pack some extra JB weld for the crank case this year.

Had the bike out in the neighborhood today doing a little hooligan riding to keep the carb in shape. My old lady neighbor was all fired up (in a good way) to hear that I was doing hot laps around the block. She want's me to "go get 'em" !!!

HA, JB weld.... you mean a machine shop That side cover exploded, never seen anything like that before. I'm heading to the Dyno on Monday to get my EFI tuned and with luck doing hot laps on the ice the following weekend!

The prep is the most fun I think!

I think we have 2 or 3 spots left in the truck.

Looks like we are about 10 strong.

Look what awaits you at the finish......

MainRoot and I have a decent plan figured out that IMO is completely affordable at about $800-$900 per team if we get 7-ish or 12-ish bikes lined up. I can't see how it can be done more simply or for less $.

Basically:
Ship bikes to San Diego or my place. Fly to San Diego. Get picked up and transported to Mexicali with your bike. Hotels all arranged by me (you don't need to figure that out, I already know it, and it will be affordable places). Your gear & supplies to each hotel by us. Work on your own bikes out of our trailer. You fly out of Cbao to home. All your crap transported back to San Diego and shipped back to you.

A few interested parties have emailed or PM'd me who don't post much, plus Johnno(?), MexiHonkey, maybe ol' BC61, and that Monkey guy. Also whoever MaineRoot has been talking with.
And....?

So let's get the ball rolling. Who might be interested?
Has this option gotten any movement? I've been trying to get a hold of Tim, I'm sure he's riding in Mexico.

I think he has about 8 or 9 in right now. 4 or so shipping bikes and I'm driving to his place and some others getting bikes there that are already there or something. I know he has def. been working on a plan. I think he posted something on Face-tube that made me think you're right and he's on a ride down there.

Prior to the late arrivals like BC here we were hauling 10 bikes/supplies.
Now it's likely 13.
