Houston area riders, shoot me a PM if you wanna team up to ride down on Friday morning. Alternatively was considering renting a pickup truck for Friday - Tuesday to load up the bike and leave it at the border for the long weekend.

Re: 2018 MexTrek #8, Oct 20th - 23rd 2018

Read the revised itinerary...This revised route favors smaller bikes, but still has 4 days with 100+ miles of concrete. Unavoidable...Sorry, sorry, sorry, I hate to do this to you again, but lodging just popped up in my choice town for the second weekend, so there is a major shift in strategy and fun. Much less riding to connect far off towns. More fun events and great rides. In short, the schedule is now as follows:

Mextrek #8: 42 riders

Fri 19th - Mission rendevoux @ Mambo's Seafood
Sat 20th - Depart for Galeana / Stay in Galeana

The names I have on the list for Mextrek ONLY are as follows:

Mel Tooley

The Afterparty V2.0 begins Tuesday the 23rd an now looks much more like the original plan: 35 riders

Tues 23rd - Additional night in Galeana (highly requested for more ride time)

Riders probably returning to USA Wed the 24th: Now 33 riders
Don Davis
Desiree Davis

Wed 24th - Dirt route to Real De Catorce (Chase truck for gear) - Stay in Hotel Real Bonanza. 20 rooms reserved for 33 riders. 10 additional rooms available for individual lodging. Cost $40 - $45 per room, Zeke still negotiating on our behalf. Many other options available if you want to book your own upon arrival or in advance. Rates range from $20 or so per person to $100.

Thurs 25th - Real de Catorce: Horseback riding, moto exploring the hard way down and local roads. Hotel Bonanza again.

It looks like a cooler than normal week, with a fair chance of rain most days. Does this promise muddy rides?

I bought a low mileage, almost new Yamaha XT250 JUST for the trip and even upgraded the suspension. Stupid work got in the way (which I am grateful to have) Lol.

I'll make one eventually.
