    That sounds really good, riding with the voice of experience. After reading the advice from others and checking the almanac I'm thinking about planning for next winter. Let's talk about this next Brewsday.

    Am I reading this right? Paved from Creel to Batopilas? Still interesting but not a thrill. Rode there in '06 double with my wife on a street style bike. Quite a trip. If it's paved when did that happen?

    Road to Bato to Creel has been paved, more or less at least 5 years. Last time on it was Nov. 2019, usual wash out here and there. First rode it in 2002, it was awesome but they were already starting to widen and improve it. Done it lots of time 2 up on my 1200 GS, really very tame but spectacular views now unless it's raining and landslide are happening. Will be doing it again in November 2- up. The dirt portion from Cerochaui to Urique was in terrific in condition Nov '19 , just went down 2 up for lunch at Tita's. Easy-peasy with the usual weather damage caveat.

    Rode Creel to Bato a few weeks ago, made this video, and it'll give you road conditions on that ride...
