I've done these types of trips before. I'm considering a week long stay in the Chihuahuan Desert. I'd like to go into Mexico at Del Rio, Tx and possibly leave via Presidio, Tx. If Del Rio is wet, I'd probably make my way west on Highway 30 from Monclova and over to Cuatro Cienegas where I'd hit the dirt over to Hildago De Parral. If the weather is decent, I'd probably want to spend a day or two in the mountains west of Hildago De Parral. The dates are open to negotiation. I was thinking mid February or early March. I plan on asking a few veterans. If you'd like to come along, you should know for a fact you can ride ruts, sand, gravel, and grades. We don't set any speed records. We're unsupported and the general idea is to ride well within your abilities. We could very well be as far as 200 miles from the nearest hospital. It would be an absolute nightmare to have to be carted out in the bed of some rancher's pickup with a broken leg. (It would also be expensive.) Your bike should also be able to make 200 miles on a tank of gas. (Sure, you can carry extra gas.) That's not a hard fast rule, just a loose goal. Another alternative trip would be to haul butt to Hildago De Parral and head for the coast on highway 24. The drop from 8500 feet on the dirt is tense and exhilarating. After reaching the coast, I'd probably like to go south to Mazatlan and possibly on to Puerto Vallarta. Humm.... Daytime temps in Guadalajara are 80ish. I'm open to suggestions.
