Sorry for a quick intro but I had to post and run. Like I said...we met on ADV. I live in Los Angeles. Dan lives near Austin TX and Monte lives in the mountains north of Phoenix. After going back and forth via email for about a month and talking on the phone we picked a date and everyone went and got their Temporary Vehicle Importation Permit from Banjercito on the internet. So now we're committed. One thing people kept asking me after telling them that I was riding to Mexico with two guys I've never met before..."are you crazy?"
Just a little bit about the bikes. I ride a 2010 BMW F800GS. Dan rides a 2011 BMW F800GS. And Monte rides a 2001 Triumph Tiger. Here's a picture of our rear ends.
Here's a Snapshot of our itinerary:
DAY 0: Friday April 6th Ride to Phoenix
