Hey gang, I haven't been on here for a while. I was living in Belize for 4 years and moved back to Texas 5 months ago. If anyone in Texas is doing any interesting rides in the next few weeks please let me know. I would really like to take off south with a group of good ADV tequila drinkers. I can only go as far as Antarctica but would be fine with anything closer.

Or you might prefer to come with SR and I next month to run the Sierra off-road from Durango to Mazatlán. Leaving DGO June 21 (Friday), overnight in the Sierra, and hit the beach at Maz Saturday afternoon.

Not so much coffee on that run but a tequila or two Friday night at the cabins

Dirt

Lots of it

Wink No pics?

No pics for 3 reasons:
1. Slow Internet & hi res./large pics (6mb) don't mix
2. I Don't know how to post pics on ADV
3. I'd rather be fishing and drinking than conquer #2 or waste time on #1.

Northbound for La Paz manana; see #3 above. Repeat as desired.

PM me for pics if you wish. Better yet, ride Baja on or off road and get your own.
Fly fishing for roosters off Sunset Beach and catching bonita off Los Arcos was good today. Lotsa ceviche and cervezas for tonight.

Hasta luego

You also need original title or bill of sale, and Mexican ID with photo and Mexican address like a Mexican Passport, Mexican Visa, or electoral card. No FMM, or you will need to import your bike under a Mexican's ID and then flip the ownership after the process is complete on the other side of the border. You will also need to pay for the plates that are issued in your state, but that should not be much.

I've got 30 days to return my foreign plated vehicles to the border and once there I can import/nationalize to return the vehicles to Mexico.

The laws will probably change again before I have a chance to post this,
I was quoted $800 to import the '06 Tiger. Not NAFTA bike - Vin begins with 'S.'

I have not been called back to immigration to pick up my new permanant ID card so I can't start the process yet. Living just outside the Sonora Free zone has its benefits. There are no Aduana checkpoints between the Free Zone on Hwy 15 and here. I hope to get the bike imported next week or the week after, along with the 2 SUVs. (Wife and I sharing the load on the max 2 vehicle rule.) I will write up what happens, when it happens.

$800 for the Tiger import is dirt cheap. I would have guessed $2500+. Just curious, did they ask you what you paid for the Tiger and if so, what was your answer?

Edit: My atty in Mexico called me today and said he has my permanente card in hand, five months to the day after my application. Nothing was happening until I went to two hearings in Guadalajara. He submitted 150 visa applications with mine in December and only three have been approved thus far.

plus add the constant feel of fearing to encounter with an oncoming semi on your own lane...

We had no hearings, just a questionnaire. It was pretty easy, most of it was done on-line before we went to the office in Hermosillo.

As for the bike, the broker never asked for a sales price, I gave him the year, the model and the VIN over the phone and he e-mailed the cost back to me. The bike is at $5k +- in the NADA book and 38% of that is $1900. The guy may be playing bait and switch or he may just have screwed up and sent a bad figure. Nothing to pursue until we have the cards. BTW, the price to import the 05 Suburban was quoted at $980 and the 97 Expedition at $880. I'll pay $800 in a heartbeat but if he left a digit off and it's $1800 I will have to think about a NAFTA sourced bike. I think I'll shoot him an e-mail and I'll start checking on what Honda, Suzuki, Kawi and Yamaha models are built/assembled in the USA.

If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
