Buy the whole one & cut up then freeze for later use. Bake slow covered in the oven for 2-3 hours(hour per #) then remove allow to cool enough to handle it & slice thin across grain then pour on a 50/50 mix of water & your fave BBQ sauce and bake ~another hour in foil.EAT.

Easy peasy! Now having lunch on the beautiful town square at Magdalena de Kino, a couple of hours from the border. Paperwork for the bike took less than an hour, and I already had the tourist visa from Baja.

I guy in a truck just stopped and yelled something about a bike club in town, and he's going to send a couple of guys around. Could be interesting!

Bikes picked up by the military

Just returned from Mexico this week and had a very unusual experience with the Mexican Army.

Rather than repeat it here, if interested, you can read about it in my ride report.

Great report Road Dust. You need to post your report over here. You definitely need to post your experiences with the military in this thread. More people need to know what decent guys they can be. It will definitely reduce the pucker-factor for people approaching check-points down here. Me included.

Cool report Road dust.

Yes, the military guys (kids with HKs) can be good guys. They sometimes ask how fast my bike goes and I say "Docientos" and point to my speedo. They then call their buddys over and tell them that el gringo es loco. When ADVer Hewby was through here on her trip south, we did a shake down ride after the repairs to her bike. Coming through the punta revision at Mazocahui, the guy asked where we were from. I said Banamichi and said that Deb was from Tasmania. He looked puzzled so I told him the island south of Australia. Then he saw her small stuffed "Taz" the Tasmanian devil stuffed animal in her windshield. He got a big smile on his face and spun his finger around just like cartoon Taz before sending us on our way. It was a low stress stop for all of us.

I've never had a bad experience with the military in Mexico. They seem treat gringos with deference and respect. No difference on the bike or in the Suburban. It does get me a bit worked up when they crank on their fellow countrymen but maybe they know something I don't.

Its their fellow countrymen (of the criminal sort) that make their jobs difficult. We are just a curious and pleasant diversion for them.

Sometimes I see them take apart an older couple in a farm truck. Of course they may be unwillingly moving contraband but it seems somehow unnecessary to hassle these people.

PV to Guat Border

I know that some of you have just been worried sick about the AK Smitty TVIP saga. I am here to report in that I crossed to Guatemala today. With hours to spare on the expiration of the TVIP!!!

Met a cool Mexican dude named Julio on an ST and rode with him for 2 of the 3 days. Lots of high speed toll roads for the first 2 days and almost all were 1/2 price from PV to Tuxtlan G. I wont say I had a great time doing but there were far more good times than bad. I don't like winding out the 800 mile after mile at 90 plus but I need to test the bike in all aspects!

Thanks to all you that added positive input and especially Sjoed Bakker for the detailed route input.

I am only 3 days behind on the RR now too. I almost have my sh*# together.

Nothing but good people and experiences to report on this most recent ride through Mexico.

I use Sygic navigation now and it's bloody fantastic in Mexico. Well worth $35.
