Traveling in Mexico..

Well. Our man Jimmex hosted nephew 2 in Rico. Thanks, Jimmy. Big time was had. Aaron left Chama, NM this morning and was at his casa 11 hours later with a twenty minute mechanical. Probably burned a tile or two on re-entry. Holy shit. lol schizz. You are one bad influence. Just sayin'.

Mexico trip next up. We are thinking Sierra Gorda but can be persuaded otherwise. ;)

Aaron musta passed through Clovis. That'd keep anyone moving.

I'd bet Jimmy had a good time, too.

Hd a great time and even better ride with nephew 2 over the mountains and canyons to Utah. Spectacular, fun ride. Rain doused our White Rim Road plans but we did heat our tires up at the uranium reclamation site around Uravan. Super fun riding the big twin over the open dirt roads of Western CO.

Whoops!
Sorry, wrong crop...this is better.



No ether was involved in the posting of this message.
Not even a little.

That looks like the road between Horse Tail falls and Saltillo.
I think that is one of the most scenic roads in Northern Mexico.

Try and get ahold of Eddywoodgo. He was headed that way but got as far as Zacatecas and went back to tour more of the states. He is from Australia. I rode with him a bit here in Zacatecas. He is a great guy. He may want to ride with you.

Looking to head into Baja for about three weeks in mid April. I will be riding my DRZ400 solo down from British Columbia and back with about 5 weeks to do the round trip

I am a little concerned with tire wear, given the distances and toying with the idea of hauling an extra rear down with me and perhaps stashing it for 'just in case' need, perhaps somewhere in San Felipe. Has anyone done this and is there a motel or campground owner who might be willing to do this? Or should I just stash it in the desert somewhere?

Ride to the border with Mexico on street tires,
Leave the street tires with someone there, or hotel, or shop,
Change to Maxxis Desert IT,
Ride into Mexico and engage the moment,
Ride back N to the border,
Slap back on the street tires.
I'd bring an extra stator, big camelbak, and take lots of fotos.

Option 2 at the border, change to Neutech tubliss system with the Maxxis tire change and plug your flats. Translation no more pinch flats=no pinche flats.

Disclaimer: I've never been to Baja, but I have been to Mexico once or twice on a KLX400R, same bike as DRZ400E.




Disclaimer: No one was harmed, decapitated, kidnapped, or molested in any manner in the above.
