Further to my last: The guy I spoke with at Banjercito spoke English well. You may have better luck dealing with someone on the phone who is at headquarters, not at a border outpost. Any amount of time spent on the phone in the comfort of your home is better than any time spent at a border crossing with your bikes outside hearing sorry senor this is not possible. Write a script for your discussion with Banjercito, it will help you focus and be more efficient on the call. In simple declarative sentences explain your situation and what you are trying to accomplish. Couch it in terms of can you please help me solve this problem. It is very much in the character of the friendly Mexican people to want to help. Banjercito is not the IRS. I suspect that you will finish the call with an answer and a plan.
