John, his mind is made up. If it ain't in the LA Times, he don't wanna hear it, okay?
Signature material there.
He needs a pair of these:
Incidentally, this is Nuevo Progreso, a notorious tourist trap. Do you think Grandma there with the white hair is scared?
And this is part of that "frontera" that he warned us about.
Be safe Patsy, and don't let those nasty and mean Mexican folks get to ya!
It's cold and rainy up here on the border and Eduardo is down in the Yucatan and he was telling me that it's cold down there, too. So wish for the best. Maybe things will warm up next week.
Yeah, that whole group looks to be in extreme danger. If only they had read the LA Times and checked the years-old State Dept. travel alert before taking their lives in their own hands with wanton disregard for their own safety!
Us gringos know how to treat you Mexicans, since we can't trust you. We make y'all buy the first round, Amigo.
Seriously, the Girlfriend wants to go back to Monterrey. We had a great time the last time that we were there.
My wife believed every single negative thing she ever heard about Mexico until we drove all over Baja for two weeks and spent a total of a month in the Yucatan and Riviera Maya since March '09. Before that she vowed that our kids would never, ever step foot even close to that god-forsaken place and begged me and my bro to stop going down there all the time. Now she wants to move to either La Paz or Playa del Carmen when our commercial lease is up in May '11.
If you can tell us how to earn an income down there then I want to know about it.
We are working on some things that may sell in Mexico as well as the States, and my girlfriend is dying to visit more, so hopefully I'll have her on the road to Poza Rica sometime this summer. Next year I'd like to fly her to the Yucatan while I take some time riding there.
My riding buddy and I will be riding down through central Mexico (again) in late April. I expect this trip will be like all the others; warm weather, nice people, good food, and cold beer. However, I hope it doesn't rain this time.
I have yet to be kidnapped, killed, or otherwise bothered in Mexico, or anywhere else. That includes Asia, Europe, the Eastern and Western Caribbean, and damn near all of North America.
Damn ! Lifes boring.
Says the guy who had his GS stolen in Mexico! oser
Nowhere is safe... or is it, everywhere is safe.
Safety is a perception.
If you have been fortunate to travel the world, you soon understand that safety is in the mind of the beholder.
Indeed Jay. Safety is in our minds.
I can find trouble anywhere, but true safety is not an absolute.
Wise man comes down from his loft...
What have you been up to lately?
20 years ago, I had my pocket picked in the Mexico city metro (subway).
Therefore, ride your motorcycle to/thru Mexico City, as it is safer.
Stuff happens, as they say.
I still love mexico! (Maybe some parts more than others)
it deserved to be stolen.
Know your surroundings. That and a Glock should handle any situation. I prefer the Model 21 in .45 acp.
I just finished a 11,000kms trip from Toronto to Yucatan, Mexico and I had
no problems at all. I loved the country, its people, scenery, food and hospitality. The roads were in decent to great shape depending on the area I rode. I even had a speeding ticket and no bribes were asked (or offered) so in a few words you can find trouble anywhere in the world and that depends on your attitude towards the land you are visiting and a dose of common sense
I forgot...yes, I had problem in Mexico...my KLR odometer stopped working
probably I should blame Mexico instead of Kawasaki

Taking a gun into Mexico would land you in a mexican jail fast Gringos and guns is an invitation to kill you. The federales would think you a dope dealer and the cartels would think the same or LEO leaving you dead on both accounts unless you really were a dope dealer:huh
And those nice and polite Army kids actually do look for them as well, and I'm betting the get a lot less polite when the Machine guns stop pointing at the ground.
