Tricepilot, as your wing man, if any exaggeration or overstatement should occur in this RR, you can count on me to embellish it.


This is SR, veteran of the Durango - Mazatlán off-road ride, and year-round resident of Durango, but originally from Colorado.

SR grew up riding rough stuff up there, and in México only enhanced his Mad Skillz riding with the locals in some of the gnarliest terrain the mountains and valleys of the Sierra have to offer.

He has been a right-hand-man to event organizer Walter Bishop, a Mexican with an American sounding name. SR has been in on a lot of the route planning the last few years, and this year was the one go-to guy loading GPS routes the night before the send-off from the Catedral in Durango on Friday morning a week ago.

He kept his DRZ400 in the garage for me, so all I had to do was to ride my 1200GSA down from San Antonio, through Parras de la Fuente (made a stop there - more on that later) and on to the Gobernador in Durango as the ride HQ.

It was also fun to be with SR, his family, and Schizzman (who took shots of the start and of other goodies forthcoming) for SR's 40th birthday bash at a local restaurant.



Mad props to SR - without whom I would not have thought of this ride, much less attempted it, and while on it, he made sure I made it to Mazatlán.

Like I said before, this is a ride I'll be talking about 30 years from now. SR was huge in making this happen.

PS - be assured SR didn't do the Ruta on his VStrom

And that hooligan Schizzman will pop in because we did the Casa Madero Winery, Parras de la Fuente, and a huge 400 mile Durango state road ride which he was a main ingredient in

Ha! Says the guy who's reporting on the shootout scene at the end of The Wild Bunch had me and Schizzman riding through no-man's-land with nothing more than a scrap of paper with a strange name and some sketchy Google Earth clues!

OH LORD NO

Jimmex has outstanding dirt Skillz, but there isn't a rider on this planet (*) who could have done that ride on a GSA, or GS, for that matter.

Jimmy does have a stable of KTMs of which I think one of them should be brought by him to this event next year.

You're #1 on deck for this ride, bro

It's always an exciting time in México, and I will always be in love with her people and her landscapes.

I've done a bunch a trips since even the last report I did, "Oaxaca", and in fact, had been up and down the Espinazo del Diablo itself (40 libre between Durango and Mazatlán) a bunch of times recently.

But until now, all I could do was stop at the paved mid point on the Espinazo, and on a good visability day (most are), gazed off into the distance and wondered what was out there in the grey shaded valleys.

On this ride, I found out!

Lol! All you had to do was ask me for my US Army issue lensatic tritium compass and my Universal Transverse Mercator topographic map

Can't wait to read the report guys. It's like you are real Latinos now

Often times it hurt to go! Like crashing on rocks!

Nothing beats being up there on those arches of the hacienda seen in the movie. Felt like I was in the firefight!

Since we're talking about the Sierra Madre of México, who can guess from where to where it runs?

Note that SR was the only smart one between us as he actually wore a parachute in the event of going over that drop right in front of him
