Nice spot for a fun day riding on the sand and camping on the beach.

the bikes are on Mex side, the land across is US

Mex marines forces patrols the area day and night..
US Border force on the other side...

sweet water for a dive and fishing,

locals getting fresh Oyster for you at $2 dollars the dozen. What else?

That line of bikes, with a dune in the background and the riders would make a great B&W shot! Play with the filter for the B&W and the orange can suddenly become something different.

Change that perception and you chance the game. Machismo is a fact of Mexican society. That may only change when women insist that it change.
nymphomaniac - woman who sleeps with everyone
Slut - woman who sleeps with everyone but you

Took the liberty of fixing that for you.

And Mike is right. I see enough different people through here that I have a good feel for who is who. This is not a big issue here in any case. I could tell stories but my oath as an in keeper prevents me from revealing my clients secrets.
TC,
You think I could sneak a girl in through the back gate without getting busted by the housekeepers? We would be relatively quiet and respectful of the property.

You could probably get away with it Jimmex if you don't drop the jug of Bacanora on the stairs

Looking good here in Durango! The road into Balopitas was terrible, and I was defeated by a bridge and 30 mph crosswinds, just not safe to cross when I wasn't confident on the VStrom so I turned around. The little jaunt down to the bridge once the pavement ended was bone shattering, not pleasant at all.

Also, the road from Hildalgo De Parrel to Durango is filled with construction if anyone is headed that way. Numerous diversions on unpaved stuff. There was one where sand was pouring over my boots like water, just to get to the pavement again. The Ankee IIIs didn't care for that much.

Any suggestions on fun routes from here to the Yucatan? I'm headed out tomorrow I expect. Cheers!

So that's why you wanted a roll of that sealing tape. Crankcase indeed!

Which reminds me. I've had it a year...I should probably have it sent over to you!

I noticed.
However, since you were up to your arse in alligators fixing headlights, I figured discretion was called for.
But now, in the breaking news file, it seems that you'll need it to hold that old KLR together! I can imagine that someone got a talking to over that latest episode.

I think the reason that KTM riders wear orange is so BMW riders can see them disappearing in the distance...

The road from Parral to DGO will be a mess for years to come as they widen it to 4 lanes. It is much more fun to head west at Santa Maria del Oro to Tepehuanes and Nuevo Ideal. This route is all new pavement and curvy mountain roads.

From Durango some of the best riding in Mexico is to the west of you. You should take the toll road to Mazatlán for a day and take the free road back.

Then from Durango you can either go SW back town to the coast from Mezquital to Ruiz and San Blas Nayarit or you can jump back over to Zacatecas from the Jesus Maria areas. You could also just head straight to Zacatecas and Guanajuato. They are both very nice interesting and scenic colonial cities.

Suerte!

Where did you end up after you left Banamichi? Sahuaripa, Yecora or the falls?
