Ok Bob, plus that old Lily Marlene of yours knows my garage, too.
We'll have to see if the Guaterider is planning on a little trip up to this area.

Will this be an outing on the Asian or the European steed?
Something potent usually works. (Hint: Patron)
We always do our best to accomodate weary and thirsty travellers.

Oye, "patron", estoy pensando en un bien aguardiente de origen. Y el origen es Huatusco o tal vez Alvarado. Algo como $30 pesos la botella de plastico!. 1.5 litros tomaño "fiesta familiar".

BTW, you know its good Bacanora if you can pour a liter in the tank when you run out of gas and it will get to the next Pemex.

Also, how's that sexy little Italian super model looking next to those fat old German chicks?
The Italians always look good. Good thing my dowdy Brit was not here, in fact I don't know where she is. She took off for Hermosillo with 2 guys in a Fiat pick up truck 10 days ago - I didn't know Fiat made pickups - and they headed south. She will come home or she won't

It's down hill all the way into Yecora. Did you find Octavio's restaurant?

The way the gas tank is configured on my VSTROM, it runs out of gas on the downhills but has another 2-3 km in her on the uphill. I've ran out of gas on the downhill and had to loop around to uphill several times to let her get another gulp of gas and get to a Pemex. Beats the hell out of pusing. Always an adventure!

In Creel now after about 300km of solid sinuous mountain roads. We did not find the Octavio Restaurant but ate tacos on the zocalo that rivaled the ones on Banamichi. Duc was a joy in the mountains. Good to know the outside range; will probably need to carry a little extra fuel for the remote sections. Tomorrow is one more day of solid mountain riding, then back to Marfa. What a kick in the pants.

Here's an interesting site that has routes through out Mexico

Found it while looking for routes from Guachochi to Bat.

http://www.yotellevo.mx/de-guachochi...hih-mexico.htm

Seems to have routes from all over Mexico from cell phone tracks.
Though my Spanish is to poor to fully comprehend the total.

But it helps me routing in Google Earth.

Good find Max.

Just spent 2 hours reading Gaspipe's epic Agua Prieta to Creel off-road tale.

Fabulous
