Greetings from Mexico! My wife and I will be riding out of Creel in a few weeks, heading north to Arizona. In the past we have taken MX 16 over to Hermosillo and up to Nogales but want to try a different route. Does anyone have any experience with the road that heads north off MX 16 (roughly half way between Creel and Hermosillo....starts at Santa Rosa and goes north to Sahuaripa, on to San Patricio de la Mesa and MX 17)? So far my research says that the piece from Sahuaripa through to San Patricio is paved....is that correct? That's somewhat important because we will be heavy, two up on a R1150 GS. Also, given that Creel to Douglas border crossing would be an extremely long day, are there any decent hotels either in Sahuaripa or San Patricio? Thanks in advance.
