    I have been running synthetic oil in my engine and final drive for six years now. Does anyone know if it is available in Mex? It is not available in a lt of the SW, particularly the rez.

    Damn, that updated list wasn't there yesterday or I'd have linked it.

    Need to check if Morelos/Puebla is there at least to save me a few sheckles tomorrow.

    Hi guys, in San Diego now after 10,000 miles across the US on the Super Tenere, ready to cross the border tomorrow. Is there any reason NOT to go through Tecate? Wait times seem so much shorter there - currently 10 mins vs 2 hours at San Ysidro.

    Also - what's a good place to stay first night in Baja? Taking into consideration that the Baja 1000 is running right now. I guess a lot of places will be booked up.

    Thanks!

    Trevor.

    Read the fine print. Nationwide 50% discount only applies to KLR riders

    A KLR on a toll highway! The rider would have to pass the collection-milk crate around at the toll-boothes. :)

    Yup, there's plenty of areas missing. At least the app has been updated with bike rates. Cuerna to Xalapa - $300, Cuerna to DF - $47, Cuerna to Acapulco - $199 and surely interesting to the gringos, Nuevo Laredo to Monterrey - $110.

    Take Hwy 3 south from Tecate to Ensenada and stay there. Lots of places to stay but check availability online. Hotel Cortez is good but pricey, secure parking under the building. Lots of other hotels in different price ranges.

    Nuevo Laredo to Monterrey has been 185 NP for at least 10 years so it does look like they raised the cuota some then halved it for MC's.

    Maybe you are there and gone already. I have stayed at Quintas Papagayo just north of town a few times. I was with a group and they had large rooms. Don't know if they are still there or what they might have for a single. Looked 'em up... they are definitely still there. Corrected spelling above.

    I'm planning on using this crossing in late January. Will get my TVIP and FMM here before heading south down Baja to la Paz then taking the ferry to Mazatlan.

    Looking for info on parking lot security and how busy this crossing might be. If nobody has any info I'll post a report later
