wish it were easy as clicking my heels. Have been under the weather for weeks and many of the available shifts have been 6-9 AM or 9:30 to midnight and I never ride levels when it is dark...too dangerous...chupacabros, narcos...oh that was a dream.

Nice fotos mm

Speaking of chupacabras, there was a great movie on Starchoice two days ago with Erik Estrada (remember C.H.I.P.S.).

Titled Chupacabras vs Alamo. No kidding, who thinks of this shit?

How's the weather?

Theoretical Loop ride in the next month for Mrs Trip and I:

Agua Prieta to Banamichi
Banamichi to Sahuaripa via Moctezuma
Sahuaripa to Rosalia
to Alamos via Quiriego and Techobampo
to El Fuerte
to Topolobampo and ferry to La Paz
to Santa Rosalia and ferry to Guaymas
Back through Banamichi to Douglas, AZ

What are temperatures and weather conditions likely to be. In other words, all weather jackets or mesh with a rain shell?
Planning on hotels the entire time. I have read the suggestion to bring a sleeping bag in case the temps are low and there is no heat. Is that just for the Creel area, or should we bring the down bags? Travel sheets?
Other than the first nite or 2 with TurkeyCreek, we have no plans. Suggestions are encouraged. Good places to stay and eat? I have Sjoerd's book. We're looking to ride gravel and/or interesting routes with little or no traffic and an easy going pace. Any interesting places along our way? We like historical and natural curiosities. Colonial towns and I'd like to see some missions. Nice views are always good.

How is the signage on these roads? Should I expect that the next town showing on the Guia Roji will be signposted at the previous town?

Thanks.

You should hear the conversation over breakfast at the leña in Cerro Gordo.

The per accuweather.com, the forecast for Banamichi calls for clear days with highs in the low 70s with nighttime temps in the mid to high 30s. As you gain altitude, expect cooler nighttime temps. Accuwaether.com has good results here but coverage is spotty in other areas. Try to get as much intel on the Santa Rosalia to Guaymas weather for your crossing. It is a small boat and the Sea of Cortez can get wild. Most hotels have blankets out for you this time of year so don't bring a down bag. It is highly likely you won't need a bag at all. You certainly won't here in Banamichi.

I think I mentioned taking Mex 17 south to Esqueda and over to Son 089 to get to Banamichi.

Looking forward to meeting you. Hasta Pronto

You must like the ferry

Why not run La Paz up and back over?

Considering that, especially if the weather is bad for the crossing. We also don't want to have to ride Route 2.
I'm expecting about a week in Baja Sur between ferry rides.
And yes, I don't really mind them...they are almost like a whale watching cruise, right??

Hotel/motel

Hello all;
First, I am new here, but I am enjoying the pictures, the adventures you guys and Gals have around Mexico and further south.
Mrs SnoWing and I drove our car to Mazatlan via Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, copper canyon, Durango back in 1997.
Now we are thinking of doing it in April for the SEMANA DE LA MOTO on a Goldwing, via Piedras negras, spending the first night in Nueva Rosita, any suggestions for a hotel/ motel.
From there we would probably spend the following night in Durango, and on to Mazatlan.
On the return trip take the ferry to la Paz BC and back to Canada.

Any suggestions welcome.
Thanks in advance....John

You know, we don't see enough Gold Wings down here, I was musing about that with the Mystery Rider while on the way to Puebla last week.
I know two guys locally who are Wing Nuttes or whatever they call themselves. Good riders, great bike for Mexico cuota roads. You can haul the mail coast to gulf in style.
I saw an old 2nd model year custom that was for sale the other day. Back before the Aspencade, when the bike was simply the bike and no fairing.
Tastefully done old school rebuild. Owner wasn't around it was parked near the Pirata Fuente stadium.

For an interesting study, check out the Naica Mine, Chihuahua

Como han dicho los norteños...Ala cojones.

Hey Trice! An old friend dropped by and was asking about Los Tejanos earlier this afternoon...




I sent him up your way...



I knew him from when he worked in the music business, we were talking about this singer. We both knew her like this, before the implants...



She always had a way of putting the "Muse" in "Music"!

We seem to be dragging the inclement weather with us as we head south in search of the warm, sunny Mexico we know and love. Still, it beats working for a living.







Arrived in Durango at 5:30pm and checked into the Hotel Posada San Agustin. They were expecting us and had cleared all furniture from our path. ;)



Enjoyed the fine hospitality of Casa SR then turned in early for the big ride to San Blas, or Ruiz, or wherever we end up tomorrow. Plan to arrive MAZ Sunday afternoon.
