Ride on brother, I don't blame you for not letting anyone kill your dreams, just becareful and if you see an American on a Kawasaki down there, keep in mind that his family is searching for him. While I realize Mexico is cracking down on drugs and cartels in the area, it can easily turn ugly for someone regardless of their intentions, I.e, tourist, adventurers, etc.


Loved the pictures and the story, I bet it's one awesome ride! Stay safe!

The SUV pulled in front cutting me off and 3 young guys jumped out stopped me at gun point. I had my GoPro camera rolling and right away they took it away from me. They asked if I had drugs and searched my bike looking for drugs? I explained I was just a tourist and did not have any drugs so they eased up and put the guns down. After talking with them a bit I managed to get my camera back minus the SD card. They really didn't want their pictures taken. They were never mean to me but yes I was scared being in the middle of no place with no one knowing where I was. I have to admit too I was told not to go into that area and did anyways so I lay the blame on myself for getting into that situation.

Apparently they are vigilantly squads fighting the Cartel and I did get stopped again at a road block but was let through right away. They are looking for drugs, guns and Cartel members not tourists. In no way am I discouraged from riding in Mexico and can't wait to return.
Glad things worked out great for you! This supports why I plan to return and travel more areas in Central and South America.

BTW: I have that tendency "Edge" to go places where it's suggested NOT to go also. Even here in the US....

GOOD FOR YOU and GREAT PICS!
