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?

Your mileage may vary, but you don't need a book or a DVD about "Traveling to Mexico on a Motorcycle"

There's not a lot of rocket science to it

But hey, spend your money how you wish

I put it together. The link is below in my signature. It's not a Hollywood production but it's a gold mine of information for your first ride south of the border. Consider it going out to lunch with someone who has ridden Mexico. You can pick their brain. Now add 12 more riders (mostly ADV inmates) to the same lunch. The advice is often contradictory, but hey, that's the real world.

The information is nothing new. It can be found all around the forums on ADVrider and the HUBB. But now it's organized, in an easy to digest format. Sure, it's not necessary, but if it's your first ride, you'll get some great advice.

Here's a pic of Hector grabbed from the just-released 2013 Ruta Durango = Mazatlán video

He (like his two sons) is an excellent off-road rider

I enjoyed riding with him in June in the Durango & Sinaloa backcountry

Warning: there's not a trail that SR or Hector have seen they they can't or won't ride. You're in for a thrill

KTM 530 EXC is ready with new off-road tires, fresh oil, and clean air filter. I am officially ready.

Foto wrap-up from last weekend in Mexico

View from my bathroom window at Hotel El Real, Real de Catorce


The next morning we walked 1-2 miles of the road exiting R14 to the west.
Had heard it was a bit rough and steep with slickrock. The following pix are
from that walk.










About the moment we realized we weren't up for taking the big bikes
down this road two locals came by on a little bike.






The Jeep gives some idea just how steep this section is.




Don't ask. I really have no idea.












This well is in the courtyard of the museum adjacent to the church. Was once
the town's coin mint. Still water in the well. Museum featured some modern art
and the story of the Huichol people. Worth much more than the 10 pesos charged.


Leaving R14 to the north after exiting the Ogarrio Tunel.


We returned to the Sierra Leon via Hwy 57, exiting Los Lirios onto
Hwy 20. Stopped at a nice little gordita stand doing a lot of business.
Good food and very nice people.

I was a disco DJ in college (UConn) so when you have disco nite there in Telluride, I'm your man

Built a "smoke" generator out of a 55 gallon drum using a heating element and a fan, and fed it with dry ice and water. Even used a Klipch diagram to build homemade housebomb speakers.

The job paid very well, but, sadly, not in actual cash

If you decide to pass though Fresnillo/ Plateros area sent me a PM...maybe I can share some local information, routs, and places to see.
