Reminds me of a camel I once heard about.......
Our Mad Mexican Dirt Posse©® is returning to the Sierra Gorda shortly for epic back country (class 1,2 and 3) exploration. You can keep the class 4 stuff thank you very much because we're not 30 years old anymore
Among this group there are more than a few ripped sidewall experience stories like yours. Which was interesting. Always good to know there's a way out of the forest in most pranged tire situations if you carry just a few extra tire fix it bits
I see what you did there
▼ Had to nuke that one since the target was so short lived
From my ride today, and the sliced tire repair topic going on, and the what are topes? questions that pop up here..
A good set fresh tires maybe not so bad, but I see a lot of riders coming through with pretty skinny meat trying to squeeze another 500 miles out of them to the next set...
That sucker is sharper than it looks, and the nails, = not good...
Someone see's that at the last second? grabs a hand full?
That is some hard core Mexican highway pornography.
Topes "B" cups?
Mebbe there should be such a rating system
90% of tire problems occur in the last 10% of the tire's life.
Actually, an outstanding photograph
Edit: so great a photo, I added it to to the Topes commentary at the front (post #2) of this thread. Thanks Jim!
Hey SR. thats the road I took them out on this morning, at Rosario I pointed them Going South, and me back to Mazatlan.
This is UKbri and Sturgischick,
The place was full of Moto-People...
Trip report is coming!
Nice host work GS, as always. I love that stretch of road. Along the beach, was the road it a little drifted over with sand dunes? I hope so, to make it a little more interesting!
Here's your quote from XR:
I think a chunk of the Mexico Travel Thread regulars have ridden most of Baja on a motorcycle. Flying there does not count.

The few who have not, will.
Go Jenn Bring the news
So kinda a weird question, I'm packing for my trip today, leaving next Tuesday. I'm planning on staying in cheap motels all over Mexico will they most likely have towels or do I need to bring my own? I do not have to shower everyday but would like to at least every 2-3. Space is tight so would you pack a towel or not?
Check with Ford Prefect on this
TriceSpot Gen2 now on my bike.... Thanks Trice!
so.. I guess this means I should not have no more "detours" from the previously declared route!!
There are no weird questions
If you can think of a question, someone else has come up with the same question
Towels are in every hotel, even the budget hotels
I can't think of even 1 Mexico hotel experience without one
I brought a compact "camp" towel to Baja last month but never needed it. Good for camping though. I also have a sink plugger and mini foil packs of Woolite. Same for foil packs of shampoo.
Don't neglect the "twist squeeze" method of drying your Woolite washed gear.
I posted Helge's video on that awhile back.
Lemme know if you want the link.
Glad you got that Arte!
That SPOT worked flawless for me and I'm glad it is in your hands now!
Towels are at every hotel but not washcloths( face cloths) Bring your own .
At many of the economical hotels it is common that the towel and soap are NOT in the room but they are handed to you , one per person ,at time of check in along with the key and remote for the TV ( and for ac if such style is used and you paid for it.)
I bring my own wash cloth , long enough to scrub my back without needing to
twist my arm out of joint..Of course you could ask for two towels , or just for a face wash use one corner of one towel. In a pinch you might even use a spare sock. If the sock was not clean beforehand it soon will be
Always carry a towel and a roll of TP. I've never needed either, but if I ever do.........
In fact I have a roll of tp that's been in my top case for ten years. Never needed it....but I was a Boy Scout.
