Wade R will be on his street tire adventure bike. He joined us last year and rode mainly street with a bit of flat class 1 gravel thrown in. What bike are you thinking of riding?Will there be any street bike riders on this trip?
He's lying....he's gonna go with 17's, carve asphalt, run some class 4's at Mach 5 speeds, and wheelie past an indigenenenous village throwing candyI may show up in my 17" sumo trim and carve up the twisty paved roads. We'll see.
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.So what are the cost's, lodging and meals and incidentals, that would be normal for this ride. I'm just trying to wade thru all the posts to see if I want to ge involved.
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.
Hi Fabio, you should have come to the Monthly Meet and Greet last night. We could have answered all your questions over beer and wings.Hey there,
New to the site and would like to sign up for this trip. I've got a '14 DL1000A that's screaming to get on the dirt.
I'm not new to trail riding and last year I did a 4K mile trip to the west coast, so I do have riding experience.
Hope you guys don't mind some questions I may have. Do you guys meet to ride around Austin? I'd like to meet some of you guys before the trip if possible.
My bike has Shinko 705's on now. How hard are the trails? Is this good enough? From some of the pictures, it looks to be ok, but I wanted to check.
Hope to see you all soon.
I might change them to some 60/40 tires and try to sell the Shinkos. The front tire has almost no wear and the rears are at about 40% now (about 6000 miles in them)I expect those tires will limit your choice of ride routes; I’d be MUCH happier with tires that are 50-50 road/dirt vs. the 80-20 705s. You should order a copy of the MexTrek guide here: http://www.texasadventure.net/cool-stuff/ride-guides/ - as that will give you good insight about route options & conditions. I’m not in Austin otherwise I’d be happy to meet up.
I am planning to ride down from Austin.Hi Guys
I am getting in on this one too; I would be interested in catching a ride with someone where our paths meet. I am in Hemphill TX; if anyone is interested LMK?
Oh shoot. I didn't know that. I may stop by tomorrow at the gas station. I can't attend the ride. I will be in a black Vstrom.
