I've had my KLR to 85 a few times, 90 one time. That's as crazy as I get!

There again, the speedometer does have a 120mph mark

Another question on this topic.
Going to Baja next week. Will get tourist card (FMM) but no TVIP needed for Baja. Planning on getting FMM for max 180 because...
I'll likely be touring the country in May. Possibly on a different bike. And will then need a TVIP.
So, having my FMM and TVIP issued on different days - a problem? And I will be entering the country the second time on prior FMM but bringing in previously unrecorded motorcycle.
Make sense? A problem?

Her is how it works....
When you leave Mexico for an " interruption" back in the USA you DO NOT go to the trouble of getting yourself checked out of Mexico. That is so easy to do, you simply do not go in at the Migracion office to get a Salida stamp in your passport which would require that you also cancel your Tourist Card.
As I explained earlier , when you leave Mexico at the US border the Migracion and Banjercito workers do not come running out of their office to tackle the gringo heading north to take away his documents, nor do they take your temperature and check your diaper ( that is done by US customs when you enter the Homeland ...) . At the Mexican inland Aduana terminals they only check inbound tourist traffic documentation, You are free to cross back and forth between the Zona Fronteriza and the interior as often as you wish while retaining your documents..
When you cross the border to the USA in this manner you are technically still registered as being IN Mexico , legally until the last day of validity of your Tourist Card and TVIP.
When you return to continue your stay in Mexico you are all set up with the documentation. Nobody at the border will flinch if in the cursory random inspection you hold up your current and valid documents. .
Likewise when you get to the inland Migracion checkpoint your documents will be accepted without a problem. .
The only time when you will get yourself into trouble is if you do not cancel the documents before going to the USA and then fail to return at least to the Mexican border terminal with the very same bike BEFORE the expiry date of said documents. That means if you show up with expired documents and you ask that they be cancelled you are exceding the permitted stay period . You will possibly face a fine. You will definitely NOT get your Security Deposit back .
Comprendo ?
This is the detailed background and explains what Kobukan was correctly told . It was also explained in this way to me by the Mexican Migracion worker this past April as I was cancelling my Tourist Card document in order to cross into Belize at Subte Lpoez QRO where cancellation IS mandatory for the Tourist Card but NOT the TVIP.
This also shows that the TVIP is considered to be a multiple entry document , so why would the Tourist Card for the sqme person be any different ? Such variation is illogical. but is applied at te Central American border end of Mexico, not at the USA side.
If the Migracion workers at the USA side of Mexico are going to raise an issue about it the simple way to avoid that is to clam up about your
travels. No need to get chatty and explain that you have been bouncing back and forth between the two countries - just say you had an excelent 6 month stay in Mexico and you forgot where all you have been, so dazzled by the experience are you. .

No problem; just make sure you have original title or registration (no copies); your TVIP will be co-extensive with your tourist visa.

Seriously ....
I'm not particulary mechanically inclined but it could be front/rear wheel alignment, perhaps one is tilted off a straight plane. I've never checked mine. There are gizmos for doing it, LINK to how one person does it. Another thing to check is steering head bearings.

But, I suspect it's just the nature of KLRs, they are not made to function optimally at speed which is really not very high, speedometers are about 10% optimistic.

Happy Holidays Everyone !!!!

I'm anticipating the "100+" thread. Get that moto up to 100 and snap a photo of the speedometer and tach.

Visa topic

Ooops back to topic have never pay attention to the visa issue being dual citizen and dual sport I think the difference is that if I enter as a gringo(U.S.Citizen) I get like multiple entrees(Entradas multiples) during 6 months that the permit last vs. if I do it as a Mexican citizen with residency in the U.S.
I get 6 months out of the year and I can stop the days counting every time I leave Mexico, or something like that don't think they care or keep record of the little paper that they give you (Immigration) always have throw them away and every time Im getting a permit ask for another one
