All of you were great guests. I really like the Tiger akaDigger was riding. How far did your bottle of bacanora hold out? Alfredo is el maestro.

It lasted 2 nights. We dusted it at Divisadera. If I had known how good it was I would have procured more. Thank you and Lynne for your outstanding hospitality.

Digger rode that Tiger like a boss, fast on pavement and in total control on the dirt. He also turns into a very convenient drinking buddy when the riding is done for the day.

Sayulita "Success"

That would be a pretty good first Mexico ride.
Answer: It was an awsome !st ride south of the border. Thanks to Sjoerd, Jimmex, Rockymountanoyster, SR, and SchizzMan. You guys filled in the gaps in my sketchy trip plan. SchizzMan was invaluable looking over my shoulder before, during, and after the ride.

Long story short: Turns out, there was an "event" on the Espinozo del Diablo. My buddy, Kevin, fell off the mountain, broke an arm and a leg. His GSA is still in Sayulita waiting to be returned to Houston, somehow. Got to figure that part out.

So, in a way, the trip isn't completed. But I wouldn't trade it for anything. And some day I'll enjoy telling you the rest of the story over a couple of good scotch whiskeys, when we meet someday and you've got the time.

Houston-Sayulita: Won't forget this one

Here's a link to a photo story of my first moto ride south of the border: http://opa.cig2.usa.canon.com/s/m/album/C3VPkW5hMDG

When you open it, click on the "slide show" icon; then click on "full frame".

I'm looking at a map of Mexico.....let's ride.

Morning Schizz,
If I were to do this again I'd take 4 or 5 days to do it, it was to much like work getting it all in.... if all you had to do was the riding part, easy, but when word got out the moto clubs and city people came out to welcome us...
The time got tight...It really kinda snowballed on us, this is a sample...

Moto club, Choix


Moto club, Guamuchil


Leading a parade in Mocorito.


BMW, Culiacan

Mayor of Concordia

Moto club, Rosario.

Termination Mazatlan..

One more, our hostess for the day...


We are already planning next year....

Sounds like an Adventure Orbiter!

With respect to getting the bike back north, I've I seen three different guys ship their F800s to the border in the last two years. One mechanical failure and two crashes in the Sierra. It happens!

It costs $370 USD to ship an F800 from Durango to Nogales and it takes 3 days. The cost is based on the weight and dimensions of the bike and the shipping distance, so the GS from Sayulita to Laredo? will be a little more expensive.

Sayulita is not a bad place to come back and pick the bike at some point in the future.

Is the bike rideable? How much time left on TVIP? I think the TVIP has to be presented by the registered owner and VIN checked by Banjercito on exit from Mexico, rideable or not.

No, the TVIP does not have to be presented by the bike's owner

Yes, the VIN on the bike will be checked against the VIN on the TVIP in order to clear it

Yes, the bike can be ridden, pushed, pulled, or dragged. Not sure if they'll accept a box of broken bits, however, if that question ever comes up. Probably has to at least look like a motorcycle

As always, keeps your cleared TVIP receipt until you are issued a new one for the same or different bike. Once you are issued a new TVIP, you can safely dispose of that receipt.

The GSA is in perfect shape. I rode it on to Sayulita from La Ermita where he fell. The TVIP is valid for 180 days from our entry on March 11th. At this time Kevin is planning to ride it home after he heals up.

Sounds like a fly is ride is gonna happen, but

There are alot of people coming north for the summer from Sayulita this time of year.

I could post on Sayulita People Facebook and see if anyone has room for $.
Might be tough as most are packed to the gills, but i'll try if you want.
Some come down loaded each season, but leave empty.
Might even find a local with a truck who wants to make some $.

Another option would be to check the Moto shops in PV and see if they have any trucks heading north to the border or even Mazatlan or San Carlos/Guaymas to deliver or pickup goods.

In the end you might need to take a truck down and grab it.
It's 3 days. border > san carlos > mazatlan area > sayulita.

Thanks for having me down for the trip presentation and for your hospitality.
Enjoyed your company as well as your Mac 12.

Keep in touch.
