Just a few short years behind you Amigo.

Let's go, boys and girls

I'll be on SR's DRZ 400

He'll be on his brand new WR 450

Off-road (and kinda in the neighborhood of) the existing Libre 40 (Espinazo del Diablo) and the soon-to-be opened Cuota 40 between Durango and Mazatlán.

I can only imagine what a nightmare Tijuana must be. It took about 45 minutes to: find Banjerito, have customs and Banjercito look at the bike and clear the TVIP and get back to the line at the border. I was waved on to the front of the line and in minutes had crossed back into the US. Thank you Mexico for 4 and a half wonderful months. My knee is still a nagging problem but is getting better. Will see a Sports Medicine doc next week. Tonight box seats at the Padres v. Giants game at... is it really called Petco Park? For sentimental reasons I will be quietly routing for San Francisco, the New York Giants were a childhood fave and my San Francisco buddies are rabid fans. Nice way to re-enter the homeland and the "safety and security" of the US of A... wink, wink.
Thanks for the RR, David. Really enjoyed following along. Your report has become reference material for future trip planning. Hope to cross paths again with you in Mexico.

Rode it with Mark883 October of 2011. On horseback. You should find it very ridable for your little horse with DP tires. And worthwhile, too. Small communities and interesting ruins scattered throught the valley.

I got her nearly all setup.
-3.1 gallom IMS tank.
-Magura Hydraulic Clutch.
-Yamaha Programmable ECU and Fuel Injection Tuner.
-Cycra Hand Guards.
-Moose Racing Fender Bag
-Moose Seat Strap.
-Acerbis front disk guard (not installed).

I'm getting her all uncorked with a new tailpipe insert and I removed the snorkel and ridiculous throttle stop screw. The throttle stop screw was about an inch long and took out at least half the throttle range. It's like strapping a brick to the back side of the gas pedal of a new car to reduce noise and emissions. It's in the trash can now, along with the spark arrestor. I haven't had a chance to ride it since I uncorked but it sounds amazing.

BTW, for those who were as shocked as I was that it would barely start, although it's fuel injected, there is a cold start button on the side of the throttle body. I hate it when I have to read the manual!

Your bike is very similar to a lot of women

I am picking up a 7' x 14' tandem axle cargo trailer next week. It will be my future garage! I won't miss my house after it is sold, but I will miss the 28' x 34" garage. Anyway, I am going to mount two moto chocks in the rear of the trailer. It will need to hold a KTM 990ADV and a BMW R1100GS, both with rear trunks that are never taken off. In the future the R1100GS will probably get replaced by a R1200GSA. Obviously I can start measuring and drilling holes, but since this will be my first time at this, what are things I need to consider? BTW, the trailer, along with my truck will probably be parked in a yet to be determined storage facility in Laredo, TX. Any suggestions for a specific facility? Thanks!
