You're right there.
They seem to overstep their authority all too often
Ya federales are usually cool, it’s the city and state police that cause problems...
The Tampico Transitos have had a Come To Jesus Meeting. Or so I’ve read.
I was fleeced by one on 57 just north of Cuautitlán Izcalli 7-8 years ago. Ironically I was driving (car) to my attorney’s house so I got her on the phone to talk to the guy. She said he was a really bad one and DO NOT go to the station with him. Just pay, get the code, and get going. I had committed no infraction.
So, yeh, usually.
The local Barney Fife guys in the small towns like ours are usually pretty cool. They pick up los borachos and take them home to sleep it off, act as crossing guards for the school kids and not much more. They don't like the state cops either.
It's rare to see federales here. When we do, they are usually on their way to somewhere else
@SkizzMan Thanks for the info! I'll give Chris a call and try to sort out the insurance. Currently putting together a med kit and will take your advice regarding what to keep on my person vs the bike.
Hell no would I be there video taping.
U turn & adios.
I don’t carry a lense long enough for that action.
Small world. Mrs Trip and I were in Camalu on January 18th.
Stopped in the Mercado on the right for bottled water and a sticky bun for breakfast.
Those guys are cool.
Last weekend a buddy and I did the Huicol route from Durango to Nayarit through Jesus Maria. It took about 10 hours to get to Ruiz at a moderate pace with stops for breakfast in Mezquital and lunch in La Mesa de Nayarit. A few stretches have some potholes, but generally the road is in good shape with some very nice new stretches and almost no other vehicles. There is still about a 1 km stretch of unpaved road near the border of DGO and NAY.
Stayed the night in Playa Novillero and headed back up the Espinazo to DGO the next day with a stop for lunch in Copala. The free HW45 road is in excellent shape with almost no potholes or loose gravel at all. With the toll road being closed, there is some more traffic on the upper part of the Espinazo, but not too bad on a Sunday afternoon. They say the toll road should be open in March before Semana Santa.

Pretty sweet little loop.
Thanks for the update. I hope to be riding that road in a couple weeks

Steve Johnson, founder of the Chain Gang and f650.com is getting ready to take his final ride. Steve loves Mexico and introduced many riders to the magic of Mexico. He is in hospice now and I'll update as I know more.
I am headed for the Copper Canyon area this weekend. I would appreciate if you guys would let me know if my schedule is doable or not. I need to be in Puerto Vallarta the 27th. I plan to cross at Ojinaga Monday (19th) and overnight there or maybe Chihuahua. The next night at Basaseachi then to Creel for Wednesday night the 21st. Batoplias the 22nd and then to Parral Friday the 23rd. On to Durango the 24th and the long day down to Ruiz to overnight on the 25th. That gives me the 26th to ride on down to PV. Thanks in advance for any input. My first time in Copper Canyon I can't wait.
Just read that is the longest beach in Mexico & top 5 longest beaches in the world. 56mi.
