I am ready for some warmth! I rode from North Mississippi to Dallas, TX yesterday. Temps ranged from 20 F all the way up to 50 F! It was a long time before the temp got to 32 F. Heck, the old R1100GS would only register two bars on the oil temp at an indicated 85MPH!

I will be leaving for Central America from Dallas Wednesday morning. I plan to make it all the way to Panama this time! ha ha I have stopped by to visit with Tracy on the way down and will again when I come back home. I should arrive back home between mid March and the first of April. I don't plan on doing a Ride Report for this trip, but I will have my SPOT turned on.

Hey Bato! Are you guys going to be on the coast or in Xalapa. If you are on the coast, we can do Arte and Andres "Greenland" area and either the Misantla highway to Naolinco (Schizz and Donnie know that one, nice curves and nice climb) or we can do La Esperanza and then double back towards Plan de las Hayas and head to Alto Lucero and ride the brand new blacktop (very nice) curves down towards the Actopan junction. Food is good in Naolinco.

What are you riding these days????

I'd love to be at Mexican customs if you tried to cross with that.

Well, that will do fine!
The Tornado of the Sierra Negra!
Looks like all it needs is an Airhawk.
Huatusco is excellent, I can be there in about an hour or so coming in via the excellent road of Manuel Gonzalez.
Then we flip a peso coin whether to go north or south...or west...if you dare...more "a la madres y chingaos" por kilometro con la ruta oeste!

Last ride of the year!



Can't really tell where the picture was taken, as we were freaking lost in the mountains, it was somewhere in Hidalgo. What you see there is not even a real state road, but more of a road built by mining companies, lots of dirt on the road, lots of stones and a few landslides. Fog was so thigh you could barely see 6 feet in front of you...

At some point we got to the end of the paved road... That's when we figured out we had taken a wrong turn somewhere.

Tijuana Crossing.

Hi, sorry guys, but as I'm planning on crossing via Tijuana in a few days, I do not have time to read all the posts on this thread.

So, has anyone gone through the customs at Tijuana very recently?

Any advice or info on any new places to get the paperwork issued? Any helpful hints etc? All gratefully accepted.

I am in San Diego at the KOA camp site at the moment.


William.

Not Tijuana, but did use the Tecate crossing in November. It's further to get to, but I figured I'd rather be riding than sitting in a queue at the big crossing (the biggest in the world). Very quick and easy, just don't miss the Mexican immigration offices like I did - immediately on the right after you cross.

Big blow out here at our little hotel. I cooked a turkey and a ham in the adobe oven. A little tricky since we use it for pizza and getting the temperature down for turkey was a trick. Came out great though. We shot off a lot of fireworks and did not incur the wrath of our neighbor the police comandante. He was working the big New Years dance down the street and was not around. So Felize Año a todos!

Hey Ulsterrtw, Have to agree with DCstrom. Cross at Tecate then highway 3 to Ensenada through wine country. TJ can be nuts with long lines. And watch the weather, it may be pretty cold the next few days.
