Here we are Trick-or-Treating last week:


And here's a vintage Barracuda I saw at an intersection the other day:


Hope this helps.

Does the cougar own the 'cuda?

I'd like to thank Bob for a few more brain scars I really didn't need, he's taking revenge for the route through Xalapa I took him on. "I swear, Bob, it's just another 5 minutes".

Looking for route suggestions and border crossing options. Are any of them 24 hours in the south?

Thanks
FASTEST route PV to Guatemala bordr would also be most expensive, but ya gotta do watcha gotta do
From PV head north on Mex 200 to Compostela and take the short cut toll road east then hook into the CUOTA roads Mex 15 and al the way to the DF there onto Cuota 150 to past Orizaba and Cordoba and turn southeast on Mex180 D all the way till you run out of toll road. Stick to 180 to Villahermosa and switch to Mex 186 .
Decide which crossing suits your needs -EL Ceibo Not on Mondays , or Cd Cuauhtemoc 24/7
El Ceibo - take Mex 186 to Emiliano Zapata and Mex 233 to the border
Cd Cuauhtemoc take the toll road (east of Minatitlan) to Tuxtla Gutierrez and S Cristobal then Mex 190 to the border.Mexican aduana terminal is in vilage 4km before the actual border
Either way you are lookig at about 2100km and THREE days of hard riding and Mucho dinero
If you elect Cd Cuauhtemoc you can make a nice return trip to PV by dodging down to the coast and running Mex 200 all the way back.
Depending on how your first two days go you could consider a third border point, that of Tapachula on the south coast and Mex 200.To reach this it is case of splitting off Mex 180 D onto Mex 185 south of Acayucan, then running to the south coast and La Ventosa and there starting the run down to Tapachula on Mex 200, a wide fast free often four lane highway. The Mexican customs terminalfor you is actually well west of the city of Tapachula right on the highway and about 40km from the actual two possible border crossing points,at thE road fork to the southern crossing.

Tapachula border crossing is the only crossing in all of Central America where I have had problems with money changers/helpers/ and a guy traveling with me had his camera stolen. Also road to Tapachula can be dangerously windy!!!

I'd remove my Touratech tool bag and re-install my pillion for her.

People asking you for money, Helpers asking you to hire them, Currency exchangers,people selling food, trinkets, Borders are not the best places to be. Especially at night. Like i said the crossings vary. Two popular ones
are at Talisman and at Cd. Hidalgo (Tapachula area) . If your up on the bridge at Cd. Hidalgo you should see something like the in the clip below. Theres lots of threads here on adv regarding Guate.
Rode through San Cristobal de las Casas last Feb and crossed into Guate at La Mesía. Nice and easy.

Weather heads up for the Isthmus of Tehuantepec and anything with a 180 in it.
We are expecting a fairly good norte event (strong north winds) on Monday (hence my planned
ride with the visiting Mr.Downs tomorrow and not next week), and then clouds and rain after Wednesday.
That means she'll be blowin' strong enough to lift the blouse clean off the cougar right through the Isthmus and out into the Gulf of Tehuantepec. What we get here will be amplified there.
After tomorrow's ride, hopefully the visiting Sr.Downs will be safely nestled into the hills
in Oaxaca by Monday afternoon. If not he might become a kite.

Note for Craneguy, got busy this week, unexpectedly, talk to you this coming week to try and sort out Oaxaca
and the transport of a few kilos of Mexico's best across a couple of state lines. Mornings are not the same anymore.
