    Can you point me too a nice trail, road from Durango to Copper Canyon?
    Also, about how long will it take to get from Mazatlan to Durango?
    Was thinking about staying in Durango (just passing through) but not sure if I would make it before night fall.

    When you get tired of that boring gringo filled west coast (LOL!) head over here to the Gulf side.
    Someone is usually around that can take you on some good rides few people know about.

    Love the east coast Mike....have spent lots of time in the entire country for business purposes and the Tampico down to Campeche areas are fantastic.

    Enjoy quite a bit Puebla, Oaxaca, Veracruz, Chiapas, and of course the rest of the peninsula, etc., etc. as well.

    Looking for local info not the traditional paved waves of the gringo world! LOL.:D

    Thank SR
    The route to CC through Narco country was the intended route, without knowing that's what it was. I will choose the safer route now, Thanks again. It's good to have intel all over for what could have been a mistake.

    I'm traveling alone, so I'd rather not take too many chances.
    I'll be in Mazatlan on the 25, the ferry should land around noon, so I'll probably get a place for the night and then ride to Durango on the 26th. If your interested, I'd love to hear the stories, I'll buy the beer.

    Somebody on this board did the route from Culiacan to Guadadupe y Calvo and said it wasn't too sketchy. i would heed SR's advice about harvest season though. Then the route (paved) from Parral to Guachochi would take you straight to the entrance to Sinforosa Canyon; worth a stop just to look out over the overlook. That ride down into Sinforosa is one I'd really like to do. (Inmate Skinny hAs done it). Then the ride on to Creel is killer and then Mex 16 to Hermosillo is ├╝ber killer.:jose

    Jodido is a very underrated and underused word in Spanish.
    That needs to change!
    A well placed "joder" is a work of art.
    As evocative and rich as a well placed "cono" with the squiggle over the n. LOL!:freaky
