Hey guys,

I rode the Ninja into Nogales today, never once saw a place to register the bike or myself, etc. After riding through a pretty good chunk of the town I got this bad feeling I'd passed up a checkpoint or something so I reversed course and worked my way back to the American side. Traffic was a bitch but not unexpected. On the way I asked 3 different border guards where I should have gone and all I got were blank stares, none of them had ever heard of a requirement to "import" your bike unless I was going to leave it in MX or sell it. Not wanting to screw things totally up I've checked into a motel south of Tucson where I'm spending the night. If anyone's got a clue why I'm screwed up on this please let me know. I still need to buy MX insurance too, figured I could do that at the border. Other than that the Ninja seems to handle the freaking topas ok. Hate the round steel balls though.

Thanx

LL

The Aduana/Banjercito for the Nogales port of entry is downrange on the highway at about 21 Km. Not uncommon. The Aduana/Banjercito for Piedras Negras is at Allende, also downrange from the border town.

Thanks Trice, guess my English wasn't all that clear to the guys I tried to talk to. As I've said in the past my command of Spanish is limited to a half dozen non-related words and no phrases so this will be fun. I'll have another go at it tomorrow only earlier than today.

Before going I need to find an insurance office and pick up a policy. It's been awhile since I asked about that but I know some carriers are easier to deal with than others. Recommendations? I expect to be in Mexico for several weeks.

Thanks.

LL

I used to carry insurance in the traditional sense but not anymore.

Now, all I take with me in that department is my grandfather's escopeta with five shells, an even older, tattered book of spanish slang found in a bookstore in Del Rio, and a medium sized flask of añejo Herradura.

Life is short, take a liter of Herradura Suprema instead.

What's that! I know about the "Stahlrat", but a new ferry?? Link, for someone who's not doing well with searches. All I can find is it's supposed to open May 10th.

See post #8003 this thread.

Girag, Stahlratte, et al, the traditional manner of spanning the gap probably won't die, but competition is always a good thing.

Sorry about the threadjack, but this seems a lot busier than the regionals.
Thanks for your help.

That's 1620 to Trice.

Wonder if he got your meaning.

I got signed up with the mexadventure people but couldn't find the bike extraction part so had to let that part go for awhile. It was getting late in the afternoon and I still had to go through the import biz so got that done and put some miles between me and Nogales. I'm in Magdalena de Kino tonight, heading south tomorrow. This is fun, thanks to all for your help.
