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.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.
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)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.

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.
Don't see Dos Y Dos on the schedule this year.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.
If anyone wants to camp at my new place in Study Butte hit me up. Thanks John!!!Just a lot, 1/4 acre. Big enough for a mobile home, or travel trailer. I bought it for 7k, back when I thought I would use it more. ALL offers considered. I will start the bidding at 5k, and we can go down from there. I don't want to thread jump, so if anybody has questions, PM me or Email at email@example.com.
Do they have showers? And what are their rates? I did not find info about camping with them.I just booked tent space at retrorents.com in terlingua, 5 miles from rally headquarters. If anyone needs tent space, they have room for 5 more people. It's a nice setup, and the owners are riders.

I did this route the year before you and I went to the State Park. Just running back from Marfa to Study Butte through the north side of the park, without a single detour, was about 135 miles IIRC and seemed like quite a ride. We arrived in Study Butte on fumes, with the WRX using all of it's whopping 2.0 gal tank. If we had played a bit we'd be forced to backtrack to Presidio for gas to make Study Butte.Starting to do some planning for this trip. I'm thinking of doing a loop West of Presidio on Friday - heading out 170 along the Rio Grande and head back to 90 either along Pinto Canyon or further North on Chispa Rd. Then from Marfa (lunch and fuel) head hopefully through the back entrance to BBRSP - I'll get ahold of the rangers there to check what's open.
