Hi guy's , This spring I would like to go visit Mexico on my bike trip . My problem is that only bike I have these days is big Honda VTX1800T cruiser . It's heavy to begin with and loaded becomes a real hippo to handle and sure hates gravel roads , best is to stay on nice smooth pavement . My question is how doable is my trip or should I drop this idea of Mexico on the cruiser all together ? Coming from Chicago , I think I would cross border at Laredo and would like to go as far South as Oaxaca , MX , but I think I'm biting more than i can chew for a 3 week trip . Most likely my turning point will be Morelia . From there 'd like to hit the West coast of Mexico and ride up North following the Sea of Cortez shoreline . Would like to avoid tollways as I understand they are convenient , but there's nothing to see . I would like to take paved local roads and "inhale" as much culture , see as much architecture , eat as much local food and interact with locals as much as possible , stopping at little towns and must see places . If you guy's think it's doable and have any route , things to see sugestions , please let me know , it would be greatly appreciated .
