I will be following along. I'm in San Jose Del Cabo right now and heading for home today. I too ride a DR 650 and other than some seat discomfort it has been a great ride. Best of luck and your a lucky man to have a wife that enjoys this mode of travel. Coleen

I'm a bit late to the thread but we are in Banamichi, 135 miles south of Bisbee on Hwy 089. We have a small hotel here. Don't know what you have planned but at least stop in for coffee at Hotel Los Arcos. In any case, enjoy the ride.

And you will love Bisbee.

Thanks everyone for your good vibes.

We'll see you on the road Hans!

We are spending the night at a friends house in Goodyear, but we may well stop for coffee in Banamichi!

It's 7am and we are getting ready to mount.
We'll try and take some pics today and check in this afternoon/tonight.

We're Watching You Two

Hey Tucker's,
The Newcomb's gang are living vicariously through you and wishing you the best for your trip. Raul was thinking that maybe we could meet you on your way home.
Keep the updates coming and take care of each other.

the tuckers are lucky fu@#^%$. have a great 6 months-will be following along.

I'll be the first to say it-its 2:50 Arizona time-where's the update for the day. couldn't resist

ride safe, ride on, ride smart. The douglas crossing is easy peasy. super good entry point to copper canyon. if you are going that way. once past Buenaventura(I think that's the town) you start some really good roads to creel.

Thanks to everyone.

Special thanks to the Newcombs Motorcycle gang

We slabbed it to Goodyear Arizona and are being hosted by friends of ours here.

Passed through Palm Springs without getting a ticket!



Entered Arizona and got lower priced gasoline.



Big fire tonight and a lovely bed.






About 350 miles and spent $27.89

Life is REAL tough on the road, not all are qualified!

This is Frances and her two boys Julian and Mario.

She is a weaver like Colleen and has these floor looms in her garage.

Lovely family.

Handwoven leather shag rug in the living room. Frances's mother and father wove this on Colleen's loom in our studio.

Colleen taught Frances and her family to weave almost 20 years ago.
