Thanks go out to my good friend Percy for getting the shot on his Sony camera. This was taken during Friday's Pit Walk at the end of the day.

More pix and vid coming.

4/22/13 Loreto to Santa Rosalia, BCS

135 miles with a long lunch stop in Mulege. The ride from Loreto is nothing short of spectacular. Almost 100 miles of nice windy roads, views of the Sea of Cortez, mountains, cacti, and many many vados. You do not want to be riding on this road during a storm or immediately after one. Torrents of water come rushing down off of the mountains and take the road out or leave debris in it and there a many of these washouts. Most of them are repaired but you can see the evidence of how violent a water and debris flow can be in these arroyos. I think I only crossed two, maybe three spots where the damage had not been repaired. Mulege did not impress me. I rode out to the lighthouse and found a little restaurant. The other two gringos there were from my town. Imagine that. Pretty damn big odds against that. We had a nice talk and great lunch and I rode on. Looked around the town a little bit... maybe there is a beach and I missed it... it was not a place I felt that I wanted to hang out. Stopped at Hotel El Moro just before Santa Rosalia. It looked great and is pretty nice, 480 pesos for a single, but there is no restaurant and they had only one f'ing beer. I look forward to a restful night and early start tomorrow.

Almost forgot: from Mulege to Santa Rosalia... hot and boring.

One beer, or one brand of beer?

I must have been about 100 feet to SchizzMan's left. MotoGP weekend=more fun than F1. Gotta say the teenage rookies might have given the most exciting show. Seven of them in the lead pack, duking it out on the 250s! Fun to watch. And who knew a 250 could do 140mph?

I always liked Native jewelry... she has a nice set.

You are an animal Trice... cross fit and a run down to Big Bend... you will absolutely love Baja... it is just amazing and so different from the mainland.

Agreed, the 250s were fun to watch. But there is nothing like the sound of the MotoGP class!

+1 on Parras de la Fuente and Casa Madera. Take the winery tour. A nice weekend trip from south or central Texas.

SR, did you do the full import as an FM-2 holder WITH a "migrado" status?
I am curious as to how the process works for someone with my migratory status.
So now you have to plate it in your home state, correct?

I did a full import, not a TVIP. They wanted a Mexican ID and address, so I gave them a copy of my wives (Mexicana) Tarjeta Electoral. There is a way around the Tarjeta Electoral requirement. For $40 they would put the pedimento (proof of importation) in their (the Customs Agency) name and then endorse it to me. With that, some Mexican states will let a foreigner register and plate a vehicle, but Durango is not one of them. In this case it doesn't matter to me because I don't plan to register and plate this dirt bike. Theoretically maybe they should accept an FM-2 visa with Imigrado status in place of a Tarjeta Electoral but I didn't look into it.

The Customs Agency was MCA, not Ibanez-Robles as I had written earlier. I shopped around and got a few quotes. Ibanez-Robles gave me the best price but the guy who imports motorcycles still hadn't showed up to work at 10:30 AM, so I went to MCA. They are open 24/7 and had a professional looking operation.

We now have permanent resident status. As soon as our new IDs are ready to pick up, we need to import 2 cars and my Tiger since we can no longer get TVIPs. My wife had imported her F650-GS 2 years ago on her FM-2. My construction jefe has a guy in Nogales. Anyone know of other brokers there?

At the moment, we have the benefit of being close to the Sonora Free Zone on Hwy 15 and west. Driving back to AZ and to Hermosillo is no problem.
