Your photographs tell the tale. What great shots!
Awesome Sauce On A Biscuit!
Thank you so much for the report and the pics
Ohio danimal just had a report of their siting in Peru
I think we talked in the street this afternoon.
Yep I checked that out today. My amigo who's been here for 50 years says thats owned by the same familia that owns a big slice of Creel .
Got to keep the kids busy and off the street.
No shit! At the taco stand near Basaseachi?
Any one heading South, stay away from Culiacan Sinaloa major trouble going on now. Friend passed on way to Mazatlan today.
Appears to be rage over the arrest of the son of el Chapo
Jairo Olmos posted 1hour ago on FB/Motorcycle Mexico page regarding Culiacán. Some pix and vids in his post. Looks pretty hot. Hopefully it will cool down quickly.
Tricewife went into a similar rage over my latest moto parts order.
I'm with you on that, food got me sick last time there.
I did not try the food (the pizza did not look impressive), but I tried their “craft beer” brewed onsite and it was truly awful. Tecate Light would win on flavor.
Yep the beer sucked too and we had a bad waiter. Was the worst meal of our tour.
Well, it looks like I got my wish- they told us this week that they are finally pulling the plug on the plant I work at. Kind of scary being as I've been at the same job for decades, but I still want to take advantage of some free time for a longer vacation than I have been able to pull off while employed. I'm thinking 4 to 6 weeks. It's not like I expect a trip like that to get any easier in a few more years.
Two catches: one, it's going to be in the middle of winter. Two, my mom is in very bad shape, so I'm concerned about being able to get back in a hurry if need be. By my understanding, if I take my bike deep into Mex on TIP and have a personal emergency, I can't just fly home from the nearest airport and then fly back to pick up my bike and ride it back out of the country. Is that correct, or is there a feasible work-around for emergencies? As for it being winter, I guess I just be sure to pack my winter gear and cross my fingers, knowing that I might have to hole up here and there due to cold or snow and ice.
Their wood fired pizza is bad. And I can speak with authority.
The target date for plant closure is Dec 16th, but will likely be a week or two on either side of that date depending on how well they get all our jobs transitioned to the remaining plants. Being a mechanic, it looks like they will probably keep me around a few more weeks to help with demolition, breaking down equipment and palletizing, banding, etc for shipment to other facilities. Wish I knew more accurately when to expect my release, but that's what I know for now.
Guzmán Junior is free. Not sure how or why. Culiacán should calm down soon.
You have 180 days on the vehicle permit, coterminous with the FMM. You don't have to be with the bike for it to be legal during that time. If you do fail to clear it, you lose your deposit when you leave. I don't remember what you are riding but the max you will lose is $400 if you miss the expiration date.
You will only run into winter weather at altitude. In the north, 5,000 feet and above, higher as you head south. It does not snow at sea level.
Hope your mom improves.
If you are in Mexico with a bike under a TVIP it is not a problem to leave it parked there for a while if you need to get back home for a while ,
The proviso is that you need to get back to the bike and move it out of Mexico before the TVIP expires, or you loose your security deposit .
Lots of people do fly out of Mexico while the bike stays parked there , then they go and continue the trip or get the bike out of Mexico.
Cold weather can be nasty in the north western high country but even the near sea level north fringe of the
Rio Grande valley can have freezing rain and night frosts in deep winter = December , January
El Norte can chill you far down the Gulf Coast in Mexico , but these events last a few days and it gets milder again .
