No Rebase Mexico ride

Great little ride from San Antonio TX to PV Mexico and back. Needed tWo bikes in SA so I hauled the bikes from OKC to SA and back in my truck. Did the Mexico ride on the Wee so I posted the pics over there. Have more to download when I get time.
Mexico is a great country and seems a lot safer than most US cities I ride in. Loved the riding down there along with the wonderful people. Learned the most from reading ADVRIDER

Question To the experienced South of the border riders

Next trip will be on a couple of little TW200's and I doubt we'll come back to the Estados Unidos. Mexico has too much to offer to stay in Okieland.
Funny thing, my temporary import was never checked. I wonder what would have happened if I had never got it. I had to beg the Mexican officials for one in the first place and none of the military checkpoints ever asked for anything. Not a passport card, driver's license or anything!
Probably pass on the Mexican insurance policy next time too. All the local bike guys I talked to said it wasn't necessary. Most of them weren't even running tags on their bikes.

I traveled through much of Mexico including Toluca as a young child with my parents in the 70s. We had some issues with banditos, roadblocks and corrupt police back then. To me, Mexico seems much safer now than it was back then.
I'm sure it's quite a bit more expensive now if you were to ever get jacked up!
