    What's the requirement for insurance to ride across like that? I'm going down for "Uncle's Around the Bend" ride in a few weeks and we're thinking of going into Mexico for a day ride.

    No ins needed if you are just going for the day. Be sure and take your passport though and registration or something showing you own the bike. I didn't have anything and almost didn't get across the first day. The second day they didn't ask. You have to pay$1 when you come back.

    Fotobo, I have to say there is a differance between 'needed' and 'required'. You only need it if there is a accident, then your happy to be insured.

    The world changes when you cross the river. Few pay any attention to signs or signals...if there are any. And if your in an accident, you can bet that you will be found to be at fault, even if your not.

    Ask Tricepilot or MikeMike on the thread "Is Mexico Safe?" http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=546927&goto=newpost before you make a decision. Then have a wonderful time in Mexico. Everyone should go there twice...or more. :wink:

    When we go into the interior of Mexico for several days, we buy the ins but never have when we are coming back the same day. You could though if it makes you more comfortable.

    Thought so, he said he was coming down with another Okie in his toy hauler. Have fun, the river road from Terlingua to Rio Grande Village is awesome followed by Old Ore Road north back to Terlingua through the ranch. Nice day ride. Copper Canyon is just across the border, very cool.
