Wink Mcallen TX -Reynosa -Real de 14 México and back in 4 days

Well, here we are talking, about this trip, planning since middle of August and making the decision to leave Reynosa Tam. to Real de 14 SLP, by Sep 13 and comming back by the 16th. We are at least 11 guys on KLR's, BMW, Suzuki and Honda bikes.

One week before, the date changes for the next following week of the original date. Everybody is cool and route plan still the same.


Next thing I do is contact my cousings living in ZACATECAS, and they agree to join us at Real de 14 on Sat Sep 20th. Cool, 5 more bikes to join the group.

Everybody is eager to meet the departure day. We all are sending emails among us to make sure all camping gear and other stuff is covered and not to duplicate things unnecesarily.

Finally the day arrives and we meet at the last Pemex gas station. our family went to say by and take a group picture. (I'm learning to post pics so I apologize if not done right the first times).

3 minutes later after departure, guess what..... Alan (Ricardo's son) realizes that he droped his cell phone right at the pemex station, so he gets back.
everyone else parks on the highway shoulder to wait for him, and guess what.....

Ricardo gets a flat tire..

20 min later the flat tire is fixed, so we continue our journey (Alan's broken phone is the only bad thing so far).

Thumb Reynosa TAM to Montemorelos NL

After the first two little incidents, we continued and arrived to China NL, we had dinner (expensive) for the content, but hungry we were, happy we ended.

Continued and right crossing one of the several speed bumps at city General Teran NL, I hear a loud noise in my bike and immediately feel my rear tire getting jam and locked.
Luckly I was very slow due the speed bump. Then check on my passenger (my 12 yr old son) and stop the bike.

It happens that my poor tiein skill, caused to drop my sleeping bag and all the slings ended up in the rear sproket chain. tearing apart the chain guard. Thanks god that was all.
It was near midnight and several car and police offices stoped by as they passed to see if any help was needed.
Nice people at General Teran trying to help.
Later we got to MONTEMORELOS to spend the night there as planned.

Here is the next morning pics getting the bikes ready and Huicho fixing my bikes left turn signal (broken last night)

Montemorelos - Sierra San Carlos (Linares)

So after the Electricians (Andres, Huicho and Jesus) helped me on my bike. Jesus leaded us to a nice place to have breakfast before hit the road.

At this place you can have an excellent buffet breakfast with the typical food of the area and more.

Here you can see Andres calling everyone to have our pray before mounting our mules...

Change of plans !

So after crossing Sierra San Carlos, Right after the detour to Doctor Arroyo, we decide that instead to arrive at Real de 14 this day, better stay at the antique hacienda house of Farid.
Farid's idea is to make a barbeque at his familys very antique property (full of gosths...) and next day early get to Real de 14.

So everyone likes the Idea and we get back few miles to take Doctor Arroyo road.



Here is everyone discussing the new plan.

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

Carne Asada (barbeque) at the Farid's Old Hacienda

After a thousand burros and cows, we get to the old little town where is the antique house hacienda.
Farid did make a phone call and when we arrived, the fire was settled, and surprisingly.... the beds where nice clean and ready for a good rest.

Thank you Farid !

So we immediately left all our luggage and get a quick wash, to start putting the steaks on the grill.

after most of us had a couple beers, we ask Farid tell his gosth stories that actually had happened to himself, right there in the house and... sheezz! almost next tho the bed I got!



Look at the nice kitchen and dinning room... not is not a gosth behind Alan, is Mauricio rushing out looking for something.
