    Hey folks,

    I've been travelin Mexico on my 1200GS and had to stop in Guadalajara due to closures and such. Going to spend here next few months or more. Dependant on world situation, obviously. Who's here? Lets meet? Ride? Beer? :)

    What i'm looking for?
    I'm looking to rent a Enduro (~450cc), Enduro equipment and best case scenario find a tour guide or group of Enduro riders to show me around local trails. Ride together, so if I end up in a ditch someone is there to get me out :)

    I understand that times are hard right now, many businesses are closed. I found this web site:
    http://www.enduroguadalajara.com/ but they seem to not respond to their FB page messages and there's no WhatsApp account to talk to... So, I'm here now, asking ya folk for advise.

    If Enduro rental is not found, maybe someone can at least suggest semi easy off road trail, local preferably. My GS has 70/30 street tire, not so good for off roading but I'm still willing to ride out on something semi flat


    Best,
    Vadim

    Buena suerte. I tried to find some rental a few years back and was not able. I hope you do.

    Try the HorizonsUnlimited communities page: https://www.horizonsunlimited.com/connect/contact#G . Other than that, just asking around usually brings results, so ask anyone--your lodging, cops, random motorcyclists you see, repair shops, dealers, etc. etc. etc.

    All of this is subject to whatever sort of social distancing/lockdown states is current where you are.

    Hope that's helpful.

    @markharf Thanks, yes, I've been asking just about everyone, where can i find some Enduros for rent. I'll try the Horizon Unlimited as well. Maybe more luck there. Everything seems to be shut closed, but I'm sure there are things still happening behind closed doors. Just gotta find my way in :)

    @noshoes Thanks! Hopefully something comes up.
