The mont-saltillo libre can be quite fun. I was lucky and didnt get caught up with semi traffic on the bike. It was pretty crazy going into the turns next to an 18 wheeler that was keeping up with me in the down hill! I have however traveled that road many times in a cage with real heavy fog and real heavy traffic. That makes for a pretty stressful drive.

Good to see you guys got this Mexico safety thread back on track. Althought it's not as much fun as it used to be. I'm still amazed that it didn't wind up in the basement.

It IS safe to buy your battery in Mexico.

That's because most of us who are posting here are not only bullshitters, but we have actually been to Mexico

Juarez Comments

Well, I can see Juarez from my front yard and it is not a pretty sight. It is now the most dangerous city in the world and its competitors are Baghdad and Kabul. Now, El Paso was just rated the second safest city in the US so go figure.

I don't think I would hesitate to travel in Mexico and am planning something this fall in Copper Canyon. Of course by then all the violence may be over but I would not count on it. My best guess if you avoid the border cities and don't travel at night, Mexico would still be OK.

Somehow, and I know this will generate comments but if the US legalized drugs, the cartels might go away.
