    Again really great to meet you guys down there. So neat to randomly run into other ADV riders on these kinds of rides. Especially when running solo in an area such as the CC.

    Trying to keep up on worn out dual sport tires I was really missing my WR down there.
    Just got back from a week in Death Valley on it. Let me know next time I can meet up with you again.

    Awesome report guys. Y'all checked out of Mexico just as we were checking in. Literally within a couple minutes judging by the GPS tracks. Just got back from 10 days on GSs covering a lot of those same places. Third time in a year to be down in CC adding a couple new spots each time. Low road to Bahuichivo was awesome and new to me this time too. Wrong turn from Yoquivo to Bato was not so much fun on a GSA, but it'll be the right turn next time on the 250. Glad you like it as much as the rest of us that spend lots of time down there and wrote them up and posted the pics. Heading back on the 250 in November, before the frost sets in with any luck. Your report gave me a few more spots to add to the list for my next trips, so thanks for that!

    I'm late to the party on this one, had it bookmarked for a while and finally got around to reading it. Fantastic report, guys! :super Loved the photos and all the extra info, very helpful. And 3 WR's just made it that much better - makes me think I could do this eventually. Thanks for taking the time!

    Thanks.

    I looked one of the videos the other day, to share, and it brought back a lot of memories of that trip. I really want to go back again.

    If you can make it happen, that place is dual sport paradise.

    I've been there a few times and had no problem with it. If you have the E32 maps you will find them easier to follow. There are way more place names on the E32 and that can be confusing when looking a a small map segment.
    The elevation chart shows the start and finish of the trip and the elevation changes between them. If you have the right software and the original file you can determine the elevation at a specific point on the track. Otherwise it's just an indicator of the elevations you are likely to see.

    As Charlie said, e32 maps, if you have them, it will be pretty easy to recreate. I would not try recreating without those on your GPS.

    Great RR Zinzer!

    Thanks for the memories, I was also down there in March in Urique, Divisadero & Creel. We stayed at the same hotel your group stayed in and Dan (VTBeemer) was spending the night too. Small world. We all went to dinner that night and he said he was heading to Choix next.
    Sounds like you guys got to spend some time with him too.
    Peace, Bill

    I think the hotel is here

    In March the high road (paved) has a bad chemical spill on it and was closed. We really enjoyed the low road. We lucked upon a festival / precession going on in Cuiteco that day and stopped for awhile.
