Odd, that parasitic twin looks strangely like your avatar, Schizz.
However, maybe he's just a little worn out from doing Mexico on $24.99 a day!

I thought we'd moved past budget travelers being parasites.

I hope to have it home on Christmas day and my next trip is planned to go to Mazatlan for New Years...SR if you are going to be around maybe we could have Lunch on the way through town.

thanks to all for the well wishes and and if anyone knows someone that needs a well Trained 2000 tiger let me know.....I have one available and she is Mexican..no permits required
RW, we may have to have lunch in Maz. Which is fine with me. Better restaurants! We are heading down from the 1st to the 5th. We'll stay in touch about that.

Your old Tiger is intriguing? I'm happy with the Wee at the moment. I just got new tires and I'm getting a new rear shock for Christmas. I might know some people who may be interested. What's the price tag? You can PM me on that if you want.

You are going to love that new Tiger 1200, 135hp!

The classic ADV Mex 200 thread:

******warning for mexico route 200******

I know you (MlpsMoto) have seen it because you've posted in it, and you hyperlinked back to your own post in this thread.

Just as with FAQs on the status of 131 and 175 in Oaxaca, Mex 200 is a high interest route. Your eyes-on-scene report is valuable and appreciated.

Route reports can be like weather reports. The difference is it can be challenging to spot a pattern.

One of the key comments at the thread link above is that to avoid any route, in this example Mx 200, to take an inland route, might actually take you into sketchier territory. And everybody's version of sketchy is different. If it exists, if you know what I mean.

I never ride 200 without thinking of Ozymandias. His mother lives 4 miles from where I grew up. The old hats are very familiar with the most infamous of Mx 200 tales, and it had to do with a donkey.

Seattle to Argentina on a KLR650

The two most significant tales of actual banditry I've read is the one on Mx 200 told by Paul in the referenced link above, and the Priscilla Brosnahan story near El Fuerte.

I would offer that statistically, the number of motorcyclists traversing the highways and byways of Mexico vs the number of nefarious incidents (whether they involve animals, humans, or road hazards) leads me to suggest to you (the casual reader) that your risk management decision process should be favorable. And I factored MplsMoto's update into mine.

Thanks again for the report.

Sad, but I guess this means the Federales now have some suspects in the theft of that truck in Tijuana containing radioactive materials.

What was funny was that that gut burster has more hair than both of us!

Hey John, that truck wasn't stolen in TJ. They've now got the Federales cordoning off the hospital in Pachuca area. Symptoms of vomiting and dizziness reported, personally, I think they were probably eating at the Holiday Inn.

Pachuca General is now going to be a landmark like La Gloria, became.
