Hey DRRambler,

An interesting cultural site, if you go by Fresnillo, is the little church in Plateros where there are hundreds of personal testimonies of miracles hung on the walls, some dating back over 100 years. There was a strong military presence when I stopped there a few months ago due to some activity in the area but I felt secure traveling through there during the day.

Also, on the hwy south of Zacatecas lie the Quemada ruins which are worth seeing if passing that way. Zac is a great overnight stop with an exquisite museum on the north side of El Centro. Can PM coords if interested in any of these places.

Great stuff, thanks

I do believe that I will be passing by those places. The ruins I found on Google Maps, and Plateros too. I assume the church is easy once in the town?

Very easy. The people were friendly and looked after my bike.

Same region as where we were but significantly further south of the highway. The plan is to go in at El Salto and come out in Acaponeta Nayarit. I wont talk about it anymore or I could Jinx it.

We are watching the weather closely to see if we do this section or not. This is from October last year. Last year was a drought! This year has been very rainy. I'm gonna jinx it?

A new recommendation for the Oaxaca ride report:

CasaOaxaca

For dinner. The chef is over the top.

Skip street tacos for an evening and see what it's about

all in 1 spot, INM & Banjercito to complete all paperwork?
how far in?
is there insurance available (if you don't have) or $ exchange?
Every thing is in 1 spot, usually 1 agent to fill in the paper work at a sit down desk in a small building on the left( east) side of the gate. Banjercito is 25ft and attached behind the building. I buy insurance on line but you can buy it just outside of Bisbee near the Safeway store. One money exchanger a block into town on the right(west). Naco has quite a few Hotels serving the people waiting to cross My buddy and I played pool at the pool hall in town and had a nice talk with a few of the guys waiting to cross.

I remember somebody in here has a website and books about traveling to Mexico on a motorcycle (or maybe it was a website and DVDs...or maybe all 3), but now I can't find it. Anybody know what I'm talking about?
