Re: Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

Hotel is booked at the El Dorado as usual. Me and a buddy of mine will mail in the registration fee. I look forward to participating in this ride again. I will be bringing the Super Tenere this year, so I'll be sticking to the pavement or class 2 roads. I'm interested in crossing over and checking out that canyon ride in Mexico and we will be bringing our passports. I'm interested in riding in a group to Mexico with someone that has done it before. Give me a shout out if you got room for two in your planned group. We are both experienced riders.

I hope you catch the Mexico enthusiasm. In the future, you should cross and continue on through Chihuahua and make a ride HQ out of Creel. Perhaps in conjunction with a future Uncle's Ride.

Ride the Copper Canyon. It will be an epiphany like no other.

Messenjah- Iíd definitely go with the 650. I just bought a CRF450X and am in the process of getting it street legal for the ride. Otherwise Iíll be on the gs1200 but I really donít want to be.

We will definitely do Copper Canyon. Thanks.

Where do we download the tracks. I seem to have misplaced my tracks from last year.

I may be interested in doing a day ride to Copper Canyon as well. Also need to do a day in the State Park since I missed it last time.

Sounds like you want to hang with us. Where are you staying? I'm at the El Dorado. My cell is 830-822-4404. We need to recruit a Copper Canyon veteran to show us the way. Any volunteers. I've got the park and surrounding rides down.

Don't forget your passport.

If by day ride you mean out & back, then Peguis Canyon is a day ride. Copper Canyon is a one-way day ride.

At least. Took me a day and a half to get from Presidio to Urique. Overnighted at Cuauhtemoc.

I'll only have limited days down there so I don't think I can invest more than one day to go over the border so Peguis Canyon sounds like a more doable plan.

While out in the Bend for this event you might want to make some informal connections with other riders who want to do the same ride to Copper Canyon in the future. I'd be happy to talk to you about what I think are the logistical essentials.

Richard has also dialed in some other cross border concepts and so has JT.

There's a gold mine of riding in Mexico opportunities in, around, and from the area. Use this ride as an opportunity to network.

Re: Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

Just realized this years Uncle's is exact dates as MMM. Had plans to get the SL125 I picked up from ed29 trail worthy and ride the Dos y Dos. Hmm...small bike fast or big bike fast? Guess it will come down to weather...east or west.

I'll catch up to you in BB. Rode to Galeana with JT and enjoyed his deep knowledge of the area. Already planning my 3rd trip to Mexico in October (day ride across the border doesn't really count)

I have this on the list to do this year. Hopefully work and home remodel does not get in the way.
