    Leave from Arivaca in southern Az. About 50 miles only 4 miles of blacktop. This is one of the busiest smuggling routes in the US. So be careful.

    Has anyone had any trouble on this Sasabe ride? I'm thinking of riding it this week, but was trying to get a danger gauge.
    I don't think twice about riding in Mexico, bit for some reason this ride concerns me more...

    Thanks,

    I did not go into Mexico - just the Sasabe on the US side.

    I live near sasabe rd and ride on it all the time. Its pretty safe. The only people I see are border patrol and bikers. I always carry when I ride and would consider it if you were going to ride there but just because of urban legends and rumors though. I dont know of any real incidents occurring there.

    You mean "Carry" as in a loaded sidearm in a holster on your hip ?

    You should be able to open GPX files with MapSource.

    I think the BP closed this area - giving it back to Mexico.
