Adios to the wonderful people in Bavispe and back on the tarmac for a short stretch to Huachinera then off the road over the mountains and a nice cool cerveza with dinner in Tres Rios. Right, that’s the plan right, just follow the waypoints on the GPS right.

ADVENTURE RIDER LESSON-- #321 Mexican cattle guards.

DANGER proceed with caution!

Come to a complete stop align front tire with center rail on left hand side then slowly ride bike along the center of the rail until rear tire has completely passed over the guard.

Here we see an adventure rider who is repairing his bike (dented front rim, twisted handle bars and sore wrists) because he obviously did not learn lesson #321.


More to follow on lesson #321.

That's the way this ole man did it. I was in awe of my riding buddies flying over these things keeping the front wheel in the air. Those cattle guards give me the willies just looking at them. Another good reason not to ride in Mexico in the dark---one of those things would kill you.

I am so enjoying your trip----it's so cold at home now--BBbbRRrrrrrrr.......

You've definitely got my attention--now write man write !!!

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Now this is the snow we ran into do east of Huachinera once we got into the higher elevations it actually got much worse a little further up, this was on Jan. 8th . At this point we headed back and went south to Nacori Chico to try and cross over down there.
