Milton the dentist may be riding in your area.

Groan...another delay?

One of the last minute items I had to take care of before leaving was the registration on the bike expires in June so yesterday I hoofed it on over to the DMV and got a new tag. What I'd overlooked was they keep the current official registration and give you a yellow copy of the application for the new one. The new one will arrive in 3-4 weeks which ordinarily wouldn't be a problem and maybe it isn't this time but my question is this: If I get stopped for some piddly-assed reason will the Mexican cops use that as an excuse to pump up the mordida? Not wanting to sound paranoid but from what I've read on this thread some of them like to use any old reason to screw with riders. The obvious fix would be to hang around here until the new registration arrives. What say you?

This one piece of information will help you avoid the pain and anguish of receiving a meal that doesn't look anything like you expected it to.

You will either get your TVIP at the border or have to produce the original registration. A title works too if you have it. Once you get into Mexico, all they will ever ask for is your TVIP. In Texas, the registration is called a "registration renewal receipt." As long as it shows you as the owner and has the VIN# and looks official, you should be OK. My dos centavos.

That's great, I've got the title as well as the temp registration so it sounds like all is well. Thanks for your dos centavos. LL

Does anyone have any experience with Mexican dentists and can you recommend one.
This one is in Creel - I bet he's inexpensive... (well, you can't have everything right?). You can always grab a getaway horse or jump a passing train if you need to get outta there in a hurry.

Not my photo, but one from a dentist friend who's been riding down there.

As far as dentists go there's plenty in Monterrey. This takes the pain away ...

She talks too much.

Nice pit patch, though.

As seen yesterday on the buey to the Sierra Negra Grande via Alhuaca (redux and slight return).

Let's see who is the most observant and can ID what's different about this pic.

Well, that was quick!

The prize is a pic of yesterday's 2:15pm to Puebla outside San Salvador El Seco.
Aptly named, it's drier than an iguana's armpit.
Got a little dusty during the race, it beat us to the crossing...and you know, there is something about those clouds in Puebla....
