I rode solo into San Fernado for fuel last July without any issues. Will post up here during the upcoming trip. We have already agreed to stop for anyone waiving guns in the air.

FYI: if you require premium fuel in the San Fernando area just stay on the loop for the Pemex there. The stations in town had only Magna.
We rode down that way on the 23rd of last month 2up. Lots of federales around the pemex in San Fernando. Gassed up, had a couple gorditas from a cooler and headed on to Victoria. Spent half an hour cruising around town and headed on south to Xilitla. No gunfire, bribes, nor anthing else out of the ordinary. Did get a straight razor held to my neck in Xilitla and it was a close shave. ..., in fact, it turned out to be one of the best shave/haircuts I have ever had.
