Road South

Anyone been on the road that runs South from Agua Prieta
through Huachinera and South from there.
I'd like to ride through to Madera.

I haven't ridden that route in four or five years.
Is it paved? Does it still have the same hideous cattle guards.
I'll be two up on a 990 A.
Just looking for a fun route to Durango.
Any other suggestions appreciated.

Twist it, Max

Glad you're having a great time. Thanks for the updates.

That is only if they bothered to re-paint them if the street was re-directed by the new mayor.
LOL!

I listened to a radio interview one time of a transit chief here in Veracruz who was telling people that streets that parallel the ocean have preference unless it has been deemed to be the opposite and he couldn't name the streets that were excluded from the rule and he couldn't say why they were excluded. When pressed for more details he said that everyone has to drive with care and then he left quickly.

When in doubt, put your nose out a little bit, if it is all clear, goose it.

The danger is in the "linger".

Thanks Trice. I don't know what I did wrong ,it looked normal size last night when I put it in . I'll go back and try knocking it down to size
You are a real computer whiz, I envy the way you can slap any picture on these sites at a whimI
.It wouldn't surprise me if you could bring up a page of a comic book of Mickey Mouse from around spring of 1952 where he goes out to sea in a little tugboat. That always sticks in my mind , one of the first comics I can ever remember, that and Cosmo Kat which I think I still have .

On the A.P. to Huachinera part you will have your hands full on the riverbed section as it is very loose gravel. It lasts for 15-20 km at most. The dirt track turns to pavement several kms north of Bavispe and is paved through Huachinera and southwest to Moctezuma. The rest of the unpaved part is just rough terracerria with a couple of semi-steep loose climbs that shouldn't bother you too much. The 2-up would concern me on the river bed. I would assume the same parallel to travel, moto eating cattleguards are still there but that is to be expected in that part of the world. The route to Madera has a couple options: 1) the easier way is through Bacadehuachi which they were paving when I was there last a few years ago, then terracerria over a spectacular mountain pass to Mesa Tres Rios. 2) Just south of Huachinera there is a brecha track that goes over the Sierra to Mesa Tres Rios joining the previously mentioned road just outside the pueblo. This route would be very difficult two-up. From Mesa Tres Rios the route crosses over into Chihuahua and up into the Sierra again and eventually leads to a place called El Largo (no facilities) and then on to Mesa de Huracan where there is a nice little motel. From Mesa de Huracan to Madera the road is paved. Hope this helps.

That looks just about like the tug I remember and the pelicans did feature in the story. I don't remember the cover though, but this looks in the appropriate era. This is obviously an affiche for a theater cartoon and the comic I remember was probably about the same time and similar story line. Thanks Sleddog

Follow one of those too close and you get a face full of cane, not Herman, but sugar.
