2011: My Wife And I Ride Mexico For A Month

It is about time to get the show on the road! We are going to have some ice in the next 48 hours and as soon as the roads are clear, we will be on the way.

Yes, we have heated gear.


The old R1100GS is ready to roll. Everything has been gone over and the suspension jacked up for two up riding.

2011: Mexico

Sheryl and I should leave Tuesday or Wednesday. We plan on being in Mexico about a month. We have a list of possible places to visit or areas to ride through. There is a list on here on the Thread I have seeking advise.

Starting Odometer and GPS. I only have Mexico Base maps in the old Garmin 2610, but it served us well last year and expect the same this year. We will also carry the Mexico Guia Roji we had last year. We barely used it last year, but carry it just in case it is needed.
