After getting caught in a September snowstorm in Rossland, B.C. a new plan for surviving the Canadian winter was formulated: HEAD SOUTH! The Plan: 1. Nov 8, 2019 Depart PNW taking coastal route southbound as much as possible. 2. Nov 15, 2019 Arrive Palm Springs and secure storage unit for motorcycles to use as base for return trips throughout the winter to explore Baja California and Copper Canyon area. 3. Nov 16-Dec 3, 2019 No time to waste, 1st trip into Mexico. - head to and tour Copper Canyon area Nov 16-25 - catch ferry San Carlos-Santa Rosalía Nov 25/26 - ride north Santa Rosalía to Palm Springs via BdLA, San Filipe, Ensenada Nov 26-Dec 2 - bikes back in Palm Springs Dec 3 for storage until return in January for another lap. Our details: We are a group of 3 motorcycles, new to riding in Mexico but experienced in international travel (Europe, Central Asia, Ecuador, Morocco, New Zealand). Bikes: 2 KTM 1190 Adventure R’s, 1 Suzuki V Strøm 1000 (more novice rider). Routes: not looking for extreme off road due to travel loaded bikes and novice rider. Want to enjoy the ride and stop and smell roses (eat tacos) as much as can. Advice: all welcomed especially re specific items Specific items: Route recommendations Palm Springs to Copper Canyon: how many days? -Thinking Mexicali crossing, Puerto Penasco, Banámichi or Hermosillo, Basaseachi, Creel/Divisadero base for trips to Batopilas/Urique respectively. Ferry Crossing San Carlos-Santa Rosalía: able to roll up and secure passage or need to advance book? Documentation: Insurance, FMM, TVIP, Insurance If the necessary documentation is made to cover period of 4-6 months, do they all allow multiple entry/exit or does documentation need to be set up separately for each trip across the border? Those are the questions I have to start, likely many more to follow. Gracias.
