Never mind taking you up Schizz on your very, very kind and generous offer that we discussed in PM. You are a gentleman. I apologize for mentioning that here in public.

I have been making notes like mad, and hope and expect to leave my "imprisonment" in anywhere from a few more weeks to a few more months (gotta stick with this as long as there is $$$ coming in). When that happens I have several rides in this area that I want to do:

* Rt. 57 to Saltillo

* there is a trail along the US border from El Indio to Laredo that I have heard various things (mostly "don't do it!) about and I am dying to explore

*hang out in Monterrey and Reynosa and visit old friends

Anyway ... carry on guys. And thanks for keeping me in mind.
You're going to hate me tomorrow.

Why wait until tomorrow when I can hate you tonight?

And Now a Word From Our Sponsor

I and a horde of amigos will be in Durango a week from Sunday on the way to Mazatlán and then back for a rally in Durango.

Here's a Tip of the Hat to a local Durango girl....

So Cal to San Felipe in February

Well I'm glad I found this thread. A couple guys from work have been talking about taking a three day trip from Southern California down to San Felipe Mexico in February. Somehow I got invited as the "sacrificial female". I'm not really sure what that means but I accepted the offer anyway
Out of the group I'm the only one who has done any long-distance touring. I'm open to any advice in planning the trip. I haven't read through the whole thread so I won't ask questions just yet.
Thanks in advance

What you find in this thread are comments about how dangerous Mexico is and comments about how safe Mexico is interspersed with various off topic diversions. The proponents of "Safe Mexico" like myself have generally spent some time traveling in various parts of Mexico. The adherents of "Dangerous Mexico" mostly just read new accounts, watch television, or get their information from the third cousin of a friend.
There; now you don't have to read the whole thread.

When I called Lone Star BMW to change the VIN to the tri-black they said they got 2 of those on the floor for the past week.

Got the ASC and cases with more to come next week. Getting the new SW-Motech tank bag. Very slick design.

She is no doubt a charming, attractive lady, but with this group "standards" pretty much are limited to her being female and able to fog a mirror without assistance.
