greg (SprintST) and i did another adv north of sayulita to chacala.
we worked on riding as much dirt as possible to get there and at the end (just above chacala) rode through a farmers field and entered (in the backway) into a fancy resort, riding OUT past the guards. they looked at us like, how the hell did those guys get in here?

Hopefully grow some testicles, schizz. Until then I'll just look at all the purty pitchers and cry quietly to myself while sitting on the couch eating chips and watching Oprah re-runs.

This man-gina thing I got going sure is getting old.

Just pack a tube of Man-gisil and point that Dirt Pig south, man. :) We'll take care of the rest.

Too bad you don't own or have access to a few bikes. I live too far away to think about riding my bike that far, it would take weeks to get there on a dual sport from here.

I understand that it would be an investment, but you can find good older bikes with low milage for good prices on Craigslist.

I've been using http://findoncl.com/ to check CL across the US. Little Yamaha XT225s are great little bikes that anyone can ride. You can find nice ones for around $1500 each. Suzuki DR350s are in that price range too. At that price you could have 3 good dependable bikes for less than $5000.

i agree those xt225 would be great down here, but the problem is getting a tagged bike (from the us) into mexico. it's 1 tagged vehicle per person these days.

we drove down in a suv towing my dr. dr paperwork is in my name and suv is in my wifes. you can bring other things in such as untagged dirtbikes, scotters and atv, but it would cause problems running around w/ all those untagged bikes.

that leaves me finding others who are willing to rent out their bikes.
i could partner up w/ a mexican citizen (national or full time expat) and have them buy the bikes in their name. these of course would be mexican bikes, as nationalizing a us bike into mexico costs $ and negates all the savings of buying used bikes in the us...the used bike market is the us is a great deal compared to the rest of the world.

the bike i would go for is the xtz250 http://www.yamaha-motor.com.mx/xtz250lander.html

the 660 tenere will be available in mexico in 2012 , before the US gets it i'm sure some travel to mexico just to ride that bike. my guess is it's going to be wicked expensive in mexico, however. well over 10K US.

That's a bummer about the costs involved with getting bikes into Mexico. "Politics"! Too bad NAFTA doesn't help with your situation.
