This happened around March 29 last year. With all the drama, as Warren called it at the time, both he and Priscilla are ready to ride Mexico again. I have not heard from the other 3. What was left out of the story is that the group of 5 was advised by the ride leader and the locals in Alamos not to go to El Fuerte. I know this because I talked to all of them 2 days later at my hotel in Banamichi. (It is the photo of the yellow building with the 10 bikes in front.) It was 2 days after the incident but Warren was cool and seemed unaffected by the incident when I spoke to him. He said "there are punks everywhere" and didn't see it as a Mexican thing.
