Copper Canyon on a 1945 Indian Chief

Just got back from the most adventurous and dangerous trip ever on a bike. We bit off way more than we could chew on this trip. Wanted to test the limits of a vintage Indian Motorcycle and I am thinking Copper Canyon dirt is about it! The road down to Batopilas was under HEAVY construction. Passable but barely with these bikes. Way back to Creel ended up in not one but TWO cartel war zones. Burnt out cars,thousands of shell casings on the road and weaving around dead bodies to get through. Ay chihuahua! On the way home we ended up being chased by baditos on the road from Bassarachi(sp) to Hermosillo. Love the scenery in the sierra madre mountains and the twisties are fabulous but the fear factor was enormous. I know a lot of folks have never had this experience south of the border but this is what we encountered 10/29-11/6/14.

Been wondering how long it would take for things to twist off down there after they snagged El Chapo. Sounds like the Sinaloa cartel may be splintering into warring factions.

Anybody got any hard news on this?

Would like to hear more about your adventures. Glad to see you and the Indian made it back in one piece.

Funny, I rode from Hermosillo to Basasaechic to San Juanito to Creel on 11/5/14 and 11/6/14 and then on to Parral stopping to look out over the switchback section of the road construction on 11/7/14 and didn't see any of this or any evidence of it. Go figure….
