Only native Taco Ricans can reasonably explain this

Can't believe no one made a reference to 'tacos ricos' on this page.
I lived in Uvalde for 5.5 years and spent a lot of time in San Antonio. We thought it was a great place! I think maybe, he messed it up after he got there!

Obviously, you don't know me very well. No one that knows me well would put my name and "upscale" in the same sentence. I just moved to the other side of Texas. We lived in Texas for 10 years, but I never worked in Texas. When we lived in Uvalde I worked in Piedras Negras. And when we lived in Texarkana, TX I worked in Texarkana, AR.

BTW, the tire manufacturing plant in Texarkana is a good example of what politicians can do if they work together. When my company was looking for a place to build a tire plant, there was short term benefits to locating in TX and long term benefits to locating in AR. So, the state of TX annexed a 48 acre plot of ground in AR, the land did not even sit on the border and three years later it reverted back to being AR!

I do have to admit, Texarkana was way better than Uvalde.

Quick update to the 1/2 price on the cuotas for motorcycles. As of 12/26 it has not gone into effect. My dad was up here for Christmas and rode home on his newly imported Tiger. At the first cuota they charged him full price. Upon asking he was told that it was supposed to go into effect earlier this month, but the president still hasn't signed it into law. Anybody else experience this, or has anybody been able to get by with the 1/2 cuota?

Its a metaphor for perhaps naively not worrying about getting your head cut off while having the time of your life riding motorbikes in Mexico.

So my question is anything I can do to prevent this? I have a cable lock and cover to discourage people, are there anymore deterrents?


Covers will help; if no one knows what it is then they are less likely to mess with it.

But the #1 thing in Mexico is to always park where there is some sort of security. Most hotels have a night watchman and I always make a point to say "Howdy!" and give them a tip.

Also, most Mexican motels are arranged so that there is only one exit and it's closely monitored.

The older downtown hotels often have underground parking garages and they will usually let you park your motorcycle near the guard stand.

Finally, every so often you will find a no tell motel that has a proper small garage (most have carports with tarps to keep prying eyes from seeing you is at the no tell. Most of those places are actually very clean and nice; I have been known to buy 10 hours for myself. God knows what the clerks think I am doing there but at least the bike is very secure.

No, the only Quota Road that I rode in Baja was for the last 20 miles or so into Mexicali and they charged me full price. Not for sure how I got on it, but there was no where to turn around.
