There is a BMW dealer in Oaxaca that is not that great, but at least you can get OEM parts if you need them and you miss the feeling of what an empty wallet is like.
I've always had a good time in Belize. Maybe I'm so ordinary that resorts are relaxing to me; is that ok with you?

Anyway I'll definitely take your advice on looking into Oaxaca. A quick google search shows nice places like the one below for less than $1500 per month. Nice places in Tulum run closer to $2500 per month.

Unfortunately pages numbers depend on your site preferences. I choose to have 100 posts per page.

Ditch the fancy ass DSLR. They're a pain in the ass to carry around. Buy something like a Canon S90. Dang good pics, and not a pain in the ass. You won't cry as much if you lose it or drop it. Stealth pics are easier too. You're not going to Mexico to win a lens-measuring contest.

Really dude. This comment would have gotten your ass kicked had you said it to me in person but you and I both know that wouldn't have happened because in real life you're no so brave. For what it's worth my OM-D already has over 30,000 miles on it. I love it when the internet turns dorks like yourself into keyboard Rambos. Whatever floats yer boat just know that people know.


Buy SjoerdBakker's book. You can pay less or you can pay as much as the US. Some negotiation may happen based on if you take a good room or a not so cool room. You may pay a gringo tax, just cause you're not Mexican. Live with it. Maybe the hotelier makes a few extra pesos off you, but they may need the money more than you. Plus, they aren't running drugs, so you're supporting the local economy.

Thanks I'll definitely take your advice on the book and rest assured I'll be infusing mucho dinero into the local economy.

Where's the pic of the Star Wars fish head guy with the "IT'S A TRAP!" caption when you need it.

I'm feeling sorry for you again. Don't worry guy. Somewhere out there; there's a girl for you too. I hope you find her. BTW she's not on the adult friend finder or anywhere on the internet

SR just survived a trip to Oaxaca. He and others live in Mexico- in allegedly dangerous places. JDowns camped throughout Mexico. They're still alive.

Fucking awesome

5.2) Trouble will find you easily...If you walk around drunk and naked with several 500 peso notes stuffed in between your glutii maxiumus. Otherwise, just don't be stupid. But bad stuff can still happen- just like anywhere. You're not in Kansas anymore- and that can be good at times, and bad at times.

Again dude. WTF makes you think I'm going to stuff money in my butthole? You meet people on the internet don't you. Fucking complete weirdo dude.


The barren fields and grey skies of western Ohio are quite appealing right now. Just beware the drug couriers running I-75, I-80 & I-69 and stay out of Detroit, cause you'll die. Gary Indiana ain't no field trip either.

I'll keep this nugget of information handy next time I think of vacationing in god damned Gary Indiana
Mark, being a prick on the internet is a sure sign of many things. None are good. Thanks for the laugh brother.

Gun Smoke,

Threats such as this are a violation of the site's rules. If you haven't read the rules already I suggest you do so.

Another post like this and you'll get a vacation from ADV for awhile.

Comprende?

Gracias,

Juanito Borracho

Sorry about that. It definitely won't happen again. Dude man just really pissed me off. I shouldn't let 14 year olds get to me like that.

Might want to back that down a bit Amigo. Mark is a good guy and he was just kidding you.

ADDED:

You asked about the wisdom of riding a BMW and Mark answered well so I didn't say anything, but my experience has always been that even with my 13 year old and very dirty R11.5 that parking lot attendants and so forth will go out of their way to protect your bike. I have had Transitos give me the thumbs up and in one really weird case they gave me an escort to my hotel in Monterrey a few years back.

So I wouldn't sweat it.

Slow down amigo. Mark883 is a veterano in these here parts and is well thought of. A lot of us Mex riders here know each other in real life too. Much better to make amigos here than enemigos.

Most of your questions have been answered, but as for the repeat border questions, the border is a fluid situation and rules change officially and unofficially, and things change at different crossing points. I've been all over Mexico (except for tourist resorts) by car, bike, bus, plane , and I still ask questions.

I'll give you my slant on your questions in my next post.

Saludos,

Mike

Regarding the wisdom of riding a BMW; Mexico is awash with gringos and nationals riding BMW's.

Lens measuring contest?

Reminds me of a great gag in Spanish about a Chinese cat burglar at the Los Pinos presidential palace in Mexico City and Peña Nieto's second wife.

If the Mystery Rider is lurking, remind me to tell you the one about the patron with ganas for the maid, and the one about the 3 guys and the high class prostibulo.

If you don't laugh, I'll buy you breakfast at the leña, same deal goes for Craneguy..though he usually has some better ones. But I'll go toe to toe with him with the patron con ganas joke!
