I do know this .... The rear hub is British laced to a 16" rim . Probably mid 60's BSA o Triumfo. Tire looks like Perelli MT53 of 1960's Italian origin.

Go to Banjercito's web site and see if they will accept your application for a new TVIP. You'll have your answer in mere minutes.

BMW Kurt..

I think it all depends on what you like to see and do. I really love wandering Mexico and all it's large & small towns, the site's, smells, people, the road food!!! the first trip I had planed for Panama but I never got out of Mexico, I ended up spending two days in the places I was only suppose to pass through, 3 days in the places where I was only going to stop late and leave early, & 5 days.... well you get the picture. 38 days later still in Mexico!!!

The next trip was 42 days and only made it to Belize & Guat, and that is starting from Mazatlan... I guess I am kind of a poky rider, but it took me a long time to learn to stop and smell the rose's.... and there are lots of them in this country!!

And if you really want to get held up start talking to the people they will take you around and tell you bout things that you just have to see... I could burn up 6 weeks pretty quickly, and not make it very far down the road!!!! (and it saves on fuel too)....

That's been my experience YMMV....

Hope this helps....

Just checking in. The crew had a few days to relax in Puerto Escondido. Great town. Went to ACA for a couple of fun nights. That town knows how to treat a guy! ;) Felt perfectly safe to me. Yesterday we had a great ride from ACA to DF. Best, fast, quota road I've been on. The climb around Cuernavaca at 70, 80 & 90 mph was some fun. Started raining on the down hill into MC. Group got split 2 y 2 on an off ramp. Luckily I had the working GPS and found our hotel pronto. The other two got the famous MC tour in the rain at 4 pm. Nothing our Patron Saint Don Julio didn't fix. Heading out this morning for SLP. We have not been stopped once by local or feds. Floated through half dozen Army check points with nothing but smiles and waves on the low down.

Great ride report! Esther is a beautiful girl. You failed to mention that you made the trip with a celebrity. I never knew Glen Beck was into motorcycles!

Today, Friday February 03 2012, the Mexican Navy is assuming the regular duties of the transito police in Veracruz/Boca del Rio. This means that the navy guys with the blue camo outfits who are patrolling as police will now carry a transito officer to help coordinate any ticket writing or accident investigation but the armed forces guys take precedence and will carry out the work, the transito will only be there to advise.
The navy have been in charge of the command of the transitos for the last little while, but now they are going to add the actual patrolling to the regular police patrols they have been doing since they took over the policing duties when all the cops and police bureaucrats were canned.
