My first name is shortened on my title (like "Greg") while the rest of my paperwork has my full name ("Gregory"). I was fine at every Central American country except Panama.

But can someone remind me, do they need a copy of the title/insurance/registration at the Mexico border? Or just to see the originals?

You'll only need the original of either (A) or (C). plus copie(s)** of that, which you can have made on site

Keep (B) tucked away, you won't need to produce anything related to it when obtaining a tourist card or TVIP

**the actual number of copies occasionally, mysteriously, varies

Cautionary alert for those whose proper first name and truncated name are different, for example, Richard/Dick; Robert/Bob; Anthony/Tony, etc.

If the truck is in your name and you have a TVIP open on the bike, this will be interesting

Does this mean that we're not as helpful as we think we are?

So many riders going to Mexico these days I think has diminished the aura that the title of this thread suggests.

I would rather see it float on its own anyway, its become the corner coffee house meeting spot anyways. Sort of like the coffee house Mesa Grande in San Miguel, where you come in and pull up a chair and see what's going on.

At least we didn't get threadmerged into Needless Dickery.


I'd like to get some of that non-SB coffee in SMA.


I need to scheme a way down into Mexico again. Fixing some wheel bearings on the Sprinter, and trying to shoehorn a jackknife bed into it. Its snowing out, so I'm not riding anywheres.

Just a note. When applying for a renewal passport, just get both the passport and passport card. Even if you are not planning on international air travel. Penny-wise, pound foolish. MedJETassist will NOT transport you across borders with only a passport card. (Confirmed on phone and in email.) Really should have seen that coming. The word JET should have reminded me. What a maroon. Jeebus.

New plan. Don't wreck.

Mexico Trip

We just spend two weeks in the Baja Peninsula - it was wonderful, people were friendly and very nice. Met many other bikers, ate some wonderful food, had no problem at military check points and no one caused us any trouble at all. We were very impressed with the residents of Baja. One of our group needed medical care in a small town and the Dr. came to our room to check him out then drove him to his clinic for care. Dave saw his Dr. when we got back in the US and he said the Mexican Doctor did an excellent repair job on his almost torn off thumb. Just be aware that although the main roads are great signage is wonderful - they are not like in the US, not many shoulders, narrow, lots of Vadas and Topes, may corners not banked, lots of mountain driving and traffic!
