So much for Trip Of A Lifetime.
GoPro capture of crashing on water crossing slime in Baja
Seems like common sense to go through an Arroyo slowly. No jacket, short pants and no gloves.
I did just that for my '09 Vstrom. Bottom line, cheaper in MX for annual policy, but not 100% sure coverages are the same, though I got the "Deluxe" coverage on Bajabound. Did a 36 day $410; 6 month $315 (yes, cheaper) and annual $440. I pay $510 annually in Louisiana which is a high insurance state. I didn't get quotes on 36 days or 6 months. This is definitely a case of YMMV, but may interest some.
IF they are going only into Baja and Baja Sur they will not need to bother with any TVIP for any of the vehicles , as JohnnyD pointed out .
They each need to get just their personal FMM and insurance for the multiple bikes and the $300000 motor homes .
All of that insurance could work out for
a few thousand dollars ???
Hotels boys , hotels and ONE bike apiece for this first trip .
I bought Mexican insurance a couple a weeks ago in Chula Vista , it cost me $190 a year for a "crash and cry" policy on my 750 Honda
Thanks, that's helpful!
Well, we don't have $300,000 motor homes, more like well-used toy haulers and trucks, but regardless, high ins costs for 4 vehicles means we'll have to rethink this part of the trip. Guess we'll just have to park the rigs and take the ADV bikes down. Thanks for the input guys!
As for trip of a lifetime becoming just how I spend my winters - man I hope so!
If you need to have a bunch of stuff with you, search on here for the Sherpax thread and get yourself a trailer. You’ll be able to take plenty with you!
Those shallow water crossings in Baja can be sketchy
He went too fast for sure, but I went down once on my 990 going too slow.
When I tried to give the bike a tiny bit of gas to come out of the water it spun around on me
It can literally be as slippery as ice
Dude take everything you need to have a great adventure . Especially the dirt bikes , ride the beaches , ride the
trails , ride out to old missions , drink some Tequila . No better way to " smell the roses" then from the seat of
a dirt bike.
have fun , Maxxx
Yes that hotel is not in Creel right up the street from the Best Western in Creel or not .
We tried the Best Western in Creel in Mar. 2018 mainly because they advertised a microbrewery on their sign. The room was nice but pricey, the beer not too good. Maybe they have improved it by now.
Up here in the far north we have a little experience with these kinds of conditions...lol in fact it is snowing here today
I'm not speaking from experience, but wouldn't the best approach be to have enough speed to coast through? No throttle, no brake? Someone who knows what they are talking about can correct me.
2nd or 3rd gear, no throttle, no brake, not even the smallest steering input, DAMHIKT See: Rio Bacanuchi, Sonora.
Service wasn’t very good either
Coasting may or may not work, depending on how wide the section is and assuming it's not deep (big ASSumption). If you lose too much speed, you lose stability and you may not even make it all the way across. I think a steady throttle works better in such cases, just like it does on dirt bikes in mud.
