Oops, I just realized that I'm going to Mexico in July, so as much as I would like to go on this one, I'll have to pass. But the July trip to Chihuahua and then over to Baja California will suffice.
These are often asked questions and I guess need a good response. I budget $50 a day for expenses while in Mexico to ride, eat, drink, party, see sights, buy gas, buy a few nicknacks, pay tolls, etc... If you go hog wild, or like your high end liquor or fine dining, $75 will do.

For this 5 day trip I would plan on:

Lodging, based on double occupancy: Clarion: $35 USD Magdelena: $15 x 3 = $45 USD Total $80 USD

Permits: TVIP $50 Visa (7 days free) $0

Gas: 500 miles / 10 MPLiter (37 MPG) = 50 liters @ 18 pesos / liter = $900 Pesos = $45 USD

Food: US: Welcome dinner: $20 USD In Mexico: Breakfast $5 Lunch $5 Dinner + Drinks $10 = $20 / day * 4 = $80 USD

Grand total: Trip $25, Lodging $80, Bike $95, Food: $100 = $300 ($60 a day)

I recommend bringing / having available $500 USD so you can do whatever you want, buy whatever you like, drink whatever you please, eat till you can't eat no more, see everything there is to see, ride as far as you want, get a private room when your roommate snores, buy a new tire, pay for a tow, and get out of a speeding ticket. $250 in cash will cover a normal trip. $250 you can get from an ATM if the need arises.

NEW FOR 2018: We will use the Whatsapp application to keep in touch as a group both before, during, and after the trip. Whatsapp requires only a wifi connection for group messaging, pictures, and video so it is perfect in Mexico. We used this on our 2017 trip and with probably 500+ group messages it is a great way to stay in touch with the riders on the group. As you register (even if you aren't paying yet) I will add you to the whatsapp group "Mextrek Amigos".
