Those pictures were awsome, you just love to feel other people's pain... is that it? What kind of camera do you recomend. I have a Nikon 35mm right now but looking to go digital.

We didn't have any bandit problem. We came in the back way to Bathopilas from Creel. Took us two days to get there, hit Saltivo before Bathopilas... is that the way you are talking about? Leaving out we went back not through Saltivo, but the normal way in (only two ways in and out). Going out the gravel road was very easy and pavement most of the way back to Creel. If you came in the back way HATS OFF TO YOU, don't see how you did the river crossings after the rain. They were tough enough for us at low water levels! We had a four wheel drive truck drown out it's distributer, but no bikes down in the water. Dropped my bike twice on the switchbacks. It was my very first dirt ride experience and on a 1150GS. Is that a good thing?
Not to take thread away....but I ran into a group of guys from MN down in Baja who did one of the routes out thru the canyon from Batopilas....and they didn't exit at Alamos....and the river crosssing (one biggy) they did was done by taping up all outlets/inlets and 2-3 guys walking/wading the bikes across...said it was way too deep on their run to ride.
