Registered today, better late than never I guess. I should be able to get everything ready in time. I believe all I need besides some minor bike prep is foreign insurance. Any suggestions on the insurance?

I'll be riding my 950 Super Enduro, hopefully with some Hiedenau K60's, as long as I get them balanced and installed in time.

Ok, went to MexAdventure and got full coverage, now I can crash in confidence.

If I don't have any balance at least my wheels should.

just a suggestion, I get a day extra of insurance for Monday it doesn't cost much more than a few dollars but it's a just in case you need extra time to get back. And for anyone with comms, a few of us are doing channel 19.

Weather for Mextrek looks sunny and perfect for off road riding, but maybe a bit chilly in the evenings. Pack a fleece! High mid 60's. Lows around 50.

Down off the high plains, near Iturbide and Monterey, it will be a bit warmer. Still near ideal riding temps for the freeway ride in and out of Mextrek.

No worry on getting pesos. Every time you buy something you'll get some as change. I recommend spending them on munchies while waiting in line to come back Nawth.

Plus a bunch on this. I had a car problem while enroute to Ensenada for Baja Rally 3.0 (A/C compressor clutch bearing) and, electing to have it fixed locally, thought I might not get back across the border before my MX insurance expired IF the local shop didn't get it fixed by Saturday morning. They did, no problemo ($80), and I was underway by 1430 Saturday. But it was nice knowing I had an extra day if needed and the extra cost was piddling.

I'm wrenching my mule this weekend... some small issues here and there... my wife asked me: Are you sure you're going to travel? that bike looks like a scrap...
I answered: you see the black HD there at the corner? well, if I can't get the mule ready, I will go in the Harley... :)

Remember, I'm running Friday, a day later... I'm planning to cross early FRI all way to China, Montemorelos and there I will take Rayones way... it looks like there is a gravel road from Rayones to Galeana... hopefully not to difficult... remember, I'm originally a HD guy...

Anyone running late???
