Yep. A great movie scene. Well played, MM.

Kobukan, folks here love it when someone "gets it" and invests the time to edumucate themselves about riding Down South. Don't be shy about questions and I hope you toss a pic or two our way when you get down there. Buena suerte.

Just slow the hell down and smile. We do things differently here in the lower 48 than they do in Alaska. SP never got that and we gave her a good spankin'. Further south in NA they do things a lot differently. Get used to it and drop the attitude. DWJ Donnie is a shining example of how to get along with our neighbors... read his stuff and look at his pix. If you are going to Mex only because you want to get f***ed that is exactly what you will get. You can stand on the deck of an aircraft carrier (or the AIDS ward) with a smug look and your mission accomplished banner. We arrogant nortenos will never unravel Mexico... it had an advanced civilization before we "white" guys got here/there. Spend more time reading and less time bleeding.
The worlds second worst crime is boredom. The first is being a bore.

Ferry Schedule

Tricepilot was kind to post the link to the ferry schedule a few days ago not knowing that it has a serve
Malware attacked.


My buddies virus program caught it before causing him problems. Unfortunately mine didn't. Anyway now have my computer back from the shop. It is one bad virus.

I was able to get the information I needed so may have been worth the problems.

Thanks for your help Tricepilot but just warning others of the link.

TC, most of it was, but the Schizz part I had to cheat on LOL!

The virus on the ferry schedule reminds me of the ones that were on the bus schedules a few years back.

New training has begun for Antonio's replacement at the Rivoli. Schizz, that rye and Gran
Marnier recipe was driving me nuts. The new bartender will be using the traditional recipe for a "Boulevard" that has dry vermouth, as well, I finally tracked it down. Yes, your version will remain as the "JD" y es para machos.
First one is on me, guaranteed. We'll let the"guero from San Angelo" handle the wine end of things, he's more cultured and besides, if he messes up, Bob Loblaw will take him out to the woodshed and we are off the hook.

Just got back from a 7 day trip to copper canyon and vicinity. All was well and zero sketchy people found. The road from creel to batopilas is being paved, (as many know) and impassable at some cliffs with rock slide.

So. Hullo, all!
Tossing around the idea of riding from Tucson to Cabo for holiday break (on either the Yamaha or Kawi - I'd leave the Ducati at home). By my female self. I'm comfortable touring by myself, camping by myself, and speak a bit of Spanish, but have yet to delve into Mexico.
Plain dumb?
Adventurous as long as I'm "careful?"
Thoughts, please, while I wade through the 700+ pages of this thread.
Not dumb. While I'm not a female, and being 6'2", 225 lbs, my experiences will undoubtedly be a bit skewed from the ones you'll likely have, but probably not any less fun and/or profound. I would add to what others have written, by advising you not to ride after dusk. Livestock on the highway is a fact of life in Mexico, so heads-up for that around that next bend. If you like to drink, I'd finish the night within a short walk to your hotel or in your hotel room. I've had friends get rolled when they stayed out till 2AM drinking, and were easy marks for robber/muggers. Personally, I prefer to ride into el centro of most towns, (Mexico City I avoid on a moto altogether due to traffic, and restrictions on some roads). Doing so allows you to explore what is usually the most scenic section of town on foot. I always find a place with secure parking, and many hotels will allow you to bring your bike into the lobby overnight. Baja is very different than the mainland. You'll find people who speak English fluently just about everywhere. Check out Scott's El Candil and Danny's fish tacos in Mulege. If you want to stop in Sta. Rosalia, I can recommend the Hotel Morro just south of town. If you're heading down the highway make sure you gas up often. There was one stretch above Guerrero Negro, where the gas pumps were being repaired in Catavina and were it not for the local gasolineros at the turn-off to Bahia de Los Angeles, I would likely have spent a cold night out in the altiplano. Have a great trip.

She is riding solo. Should give you some insight. Baja is quite safe with friendly people.

Have a great ride and be sure to let us know
Thanks - will dig into this thread tonight!

No danger there. I have this maddening thing with my vision - I absolutely positively can not ride at night no matter what. Would definitely sleep by the side of the road before doing so. I'm using to leaving lots of room for error on this point.

Yeah, I may have to think about range issues/find a way to carry. Not up for putting new tanks on the Yamaha at this point in time, although I'm sure the day is coming.

And MANY thanks for the dining tips. That will be my next question, should I decide to do this. Need good intel for my "Eating on Two Wheels" blog!
