So yesterday morning after 6 nights in the Copper Canyon area , it was time to leave . The bike was ready





And we had to leave this hotel where we could afford to stay , thanks to a real good deal that we got from the manager





This was the last picture taken by Luisa, before her camera died . The lens just doesn’t return to its original position anymore





We then took a 200km detour on our way to Cd. Madera , in order to see the Cascada Basaseachi, Mexicos second highest waterfall . The ride there was great , a newly paved mountainroad with lots of turns . But when we got there, once again : A great waterfall without water










So now we are only one more stop , Nueva Cass Grandes, away from crossing into the US.

Is that them gay glasses I know and love?

Glad you made it to Batopilas! I hope Copper Canyon was as good as I might have said to you, as I recal it was great! Hope you are having a good time...seems so!

Do your feet smell anywhere near as bad as mine yet?

Great ride report. I really like the places you have been visiting in Mexico. I wish I would have had more time to see some of them...

If you make it to Los Angeles and need a place to stay, let me know. I'm not too far from the beach, have a garage and a spare bedroom.

Also, if you need any ideas of things to see in California, please let me know!

Suarte!

Inspired to see Mexico

Hi GuateRider,

I just found this thread and while your RR is excellent in and of itself, just the pictures alone from Real and Copper Canyon have inspired me to look at Mexico completely different than I had been before.

My wife and I are planning to go from Calgary to TFD sometime in the next few years, and we were looking at Mexico as simply a place to get through before C. And S. America.

Back in late October 2011, we were in Puerto Vallarta for our nieces wedding and was not too impressed with PV. Took a guided ride on rented scooters south into the mountains (El Tuito, I think) and enjoyed that day the best of the week we were there.

Now my viewpoint has changed. I can easily see making a major trip out of just Mexico! Thanks GR!

Oh and I've tagged along for the rest of the ride report.

Ian

Tonight is our last night in Mexico....
Everybody who has been reading my RR must know by now how much I love,admire,respect and enjoy this country.
There might be one thing that I have not mentioned enough : all the new friends I made,all the help I received these last 3 month, people who invited me to their home, bought me lunch,hotel owners who gave us huge discounts, people who gave us great advises . I don't want to mention all of them because I'm afraid to forget someone.
Muchisimas gracias to all of you !! Without you guys this journey so far would not have been the same!!

Great RR! When/IF you pass through Vancouver, BC I have a great workshop with some bikes to keep your bike company and a room for you! Keep on rolling
