Baja Tourist Permit Info Here

Contrary to some opinions you are not required to carry your title in Mexico nor is it required to obtain a TVIP as long as you have a valid registration.

For Baja Mexico you will need your driver's license, your registration (in lieu of title), minimum Mexico liability insurance (recommended but not legally required), and a tourist card if traveling as described above. You can easily obtain a replacement registration at your local DMV if your original is lost.
my county clerk gives me a free duplicate registration receipt for on the road issues like they keep it or it gets lost, also I have it scanned into my email along with other documents.

The scan part is nice, the word is out to scan all important docs and email the files to yourself.

However, once you use your registration (or title) to aquire your TVIP, nobody will ever, not once, ask to see them again. At least not in Mexico.

Think of it as the long way!
There is a little something in Xico, made famous by a movie, that nobody on this planet should miss. Stunning. And it's not a woman (this time).

I crossed 3 weeks ago. You have two choices, one in town right off of main street, or you can take the truck entry just east of town. If you have to import your bike because your going into the mainland, take the truck entry, the bank for your import fees and paper work is there. If not the in town option is easy and fast.

Thanks! Would main street be the continuation of CA111 coming from Calexico?

Schizz, Xico figured prominently in the movie "Clear and Present Danger" with Harrison Ford and before that in "Romancing the Stone" with Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas (before they built the new aquarium and mall in Veracruz). Location scouts use the state of Veracruz to double for Colombia most of the time. Catemaco was used for Predator and for Medicine Man. Near Paso de Ovejas and also Catemaco again, Apocalypto was filmed. Besides doing Predator parts here, Arnie used a few local locations for Collateral Damage, too. The old Allende jail in Veracruz was used for Gibson's second movie here which has yet to be released.

Mexico City Bypass

Need route suggestion from Queretaro to Pueblo. How far away from Mexico City is far enough to avoid gridlock?

Heads up for the Mex #180 coast highway and the upper elevations near the Puebla-Veracruz state line.
We are going to get a light norte with cooler temps and a north wind today, Wednesday, but on Saturday a very strong
cold front will be moving through and that means strong north winds on the coast and much cooler temps (near zero) overnight in the Perote and upper elevations areas. Don't ride with your fly zipper open. LOL!
