We now have permanent resident status. As soon as our new IDs are ready to pick up, we need to import 2 cars and my Tiger since we can no longer get TVIPs. My wife had imported her F650-GS 2 years ago on her FM-2. My construction jefe has a guy in Nogales. Anyone know of other brokers there?

At the moment, we have the benefit of being close to the Sonora Free Zone on Hwy 15 and west. Driving back to AZ and to Hermosillo is no problem.

With that, some Mexican states will let a foreigner register and plate a vehicle, but Durango is not one of them. In this case it doesn't matter to me because I don't plan to register and plate this dirt bike. Theoretically maybe they should accept an FM-2 visa with Migrado status in place of a Tarjeta Electoral but I didn't look into it.

The Customs Agency was MCA, not Ibanez-Robles as I had written earlier. I shopped around and got a few quotes. Ibanez-Robles gave me the best price but the guy who imports motorcycles still hadn't showed up to work at 10:30 AM, so I went to MGA. They are open 24/7 and had a professional looking operation.
Hey SR,

It was really nice getting to talk to you at Trice's the other day.

In regard to the above highlight, do you know if Tamps is one of the states that allows that? If so, could I plate/register a bike there but keep it at home in Texas? I think I would do this to the KLR if I could.

Hi Weazy great to meet you too. Thanks for the book!!

Someone told me that you could do it in Jalisco, but I don't know about Tamps? You might call MCA. They know a lot about those things. Your plan might not be bad. You might look into how insurance will work with the situation you are describing.

BTW, 2 years ago I did a full import on my 2005 KLR. If I remember correctly it cost about 11,000 pesos.

I visited the Casa Madero winery, which is actually the old San Lorenzo winery that the Madero family bought sometime in the late 1800's I think. I also visited the chapel on top of the volcanic plug, Santo Madero, visited the natural spring fed pools and all the aqueducts. Two blocks over from the hotel is where the movie The Wild Bunch was filmed for the opening shootout. Just outside of town is the hacienda Cienega del Carmen where the final shootout was filmed. It has since been renovated. There is a nice casa de cultura in Parras where you can hear nice music being played, classical violin and guitarra. Easy to meet & greet the locals there and blend in. I love that town.

Veronica on the right. You see her to pay for your boat ride. You are in Coahuila, vaquero.

Thing?

What is that "thing" parked next to your motorcycle? Is that some kind of amphibious craft for the border crossing?

I think that he actually has "stringers" out in the field who make him seem like he is everywhere... kinda like Fox "News". Ya' just don't know who you can believe anymore.
