Two of us planned a trek into Mexico. We just got home yesterday evening and I had over 12GB worth of photos and video to sort and edit. The video... jaja... not even started.

Two of us planned the trek. Three of us went on this adventure. Our stallions were six fifties. Nearly 150 combined horsepower.

We kicked **** on this ride because we are some bad ****s. We did what they told us not to. We camped with coyotes howling outside our tents. We plucked cactus thorns from our boots and tires.

We went for an adventure ride in Mexico.




We'll have two authors for this ride.... here be me.

Here be Richard on his seisciento cincuenta caballo-

oh wait... thats just a friendly Mexican.

Here is Richard.

And Don Quixote himself. Clueless as ever. Slow and steady. He fought off killer cactus windmills with a hunting knife.

Night number one brought us to McAllen,Tx. 10 hours for Jim and I. Richard, although he lives in Houston, drove down from around Kansas City after visiting the in-laws for the holidays. 18 hours in the car for him.

Day two. We run all the way down to the border.

Back from a quick commercial break to go pay the 'lectricity bill.

I'll give some details on getting across the border. GO AS FAST AS POSSIBLE! Make an S-curve so the bullets miss your head.
Thats the BS for all the BS-ers sitting at home right now.

The truth for those who are wanting to get going south, do as follows.

I highly recommend getting your vehicle permit online. It only costs about $20 more to do it that way, but should save you a good amount of time.

On the flip side to that, you must still get your tourist permit (visa) which costs $230. That's pesos. But Jim reckoned it was $230 bucks. Poor Don Quixote.

This process may only hold true for the Hidalgo crossing.
1)Go to the Migration counter, give em your passport and they give you form.
2)Fill out paper.
3)Have copies made at next window.
4) Go to Banjercito window and pay your dues.
5) Go back to Migration window and have passport stamped. "Bye-Bye. Vaya con dios!"

Being cute obviously helps you with the process.

Welcome to Mehico.

Yes. Welcome to Mexico. The land of drug runners, angry Mexicans who hate Americans. The land of burros and goats on the road sides. Horse and burro drawn buggies holding up traffic. A place of crazy drivers. A place where you can pass cars in a curve, or a line of cars slowing for topes. You can just about do what you like with little restriction. Yes. This is Mexico.
PC290102.jpg

T-I-M. This is Mexico.
PC290104.jpg

Ok, well the first sentence can only possibly true. I have never met so many friendly people in my life. In this state, coming up on a car while blasting down a dirt road only gets you a dirty face and a bit of aggravation. In Mexico, everyone pulled over to let us pass. Most even gave a friendly honk and a definate wave. T-I-M.


PC290107.jpg

Our first day in Mexico was great. The maps dont match the roads worth a crap... so our navigation was left up to richard and his E132 GPS mapset... he'll give you a speil on that later
PC290109.jpg


Has your wife ever wondered where your winter time oranges come from? Give me her number and I will explain in great detail.

We even had a great lunch.

We had no clue exactly what the meat was, but who the heck cares? It was red meat, char broiled to perfection. Add a little lime and a tortilla and its bliss.

Oh yeah. Bring it on, suckers.

We left off with pavement, a curve, and a sharp drop off. We finally made it to the mountains near Montemorelos. MON tay Mo ray LOS. A zig and a zag later we meet our first switchback.

Please tell me where to get the vehicle permit online. How much does it cost?

I made it all the way down to Mazatlan and halfway up Baja last year without ever being asked for a passport or anything but I think I'm going to go legit this year.

That is the actual link.

We were only asked for the permit at the check station about 30 miles in on Hwy 40. Didnt use my passport until I got back to the border.

Ask a burro which way

Richard tried getting too far ahead of himself/ourselves. One day at a time brother.


Day two. Ask a burro which way.
IMG_0198.jpg

Ricardo done did told you about Don Quixote enjoying his breakfast bars for breakfast. I read the label on them, 90 calories and something like 1g of protein.
IMG_0201.jpg

Well what do you know. Early mornin sunlight allows for great photos.
T.I.M.
IMG_0207.jpg

IMG_0208.jpg

This is Galeana, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

It was a clear day so we decided it would be a good one to run up Cerro Potosi. 935 meter providence over the area. 12,000 feet overall. Lets get going!
Ricardo's photo is good. Mine is better.
PC300235.jpg

This road is the wrong way for those of you who are going on this ride. You can do it easily on an unloaded seisciento cincuenta, we made good fun of this adventure. Once we got a few miles down we decided we would find our way through to get to Mimbres. Richard's GPS didnt keep up with the Mexicans, so the routes we need to take dead ended.... atleast 5 times.
Como se va a..... eh Los Mimbres? Blank stares.
PC300238.jpg

These guys did their best to direct us the way. He even told me that Ricardo no entiendo bien. I got the drift that we needed to go over the mountain and take a right down a hill.... but never really found the road. They were quite worried that the trail would be too much for our bikes. "Es muy erecta" Bueno!!!!!!
3 trips back to this little village and a hand drawn map later.... we still didnt have anything. We went back and I asked someone closer to the direction we needed to go. They finally told me to go back dosciento metros and un izquierda abajo y mas erecta. :dunno Gracias.
PC300241.jpg

(Gun and machete wilding Mexican. Looks menacing, atop his half HP burro, doesnt he?)
PC300242.jpg

T.I.M.
On our hand drawn map, the guy had "rio pequeno" "si" for this way and a "no" for that way.
Oh here is the rio pequeno.
PC300244.jpg

I stood in the middle of this rio pequeno to bring you this photo.

So, go over the hill from the burro man village. You will then pass the gun/machete wilding Mexican and start up a rocky climb. You will see a trail going off the edge of the cliff. Take that route. :nod

This really is where the fun started. I enjoy asking directions. It seems like I did a lot whenever Ricardo's GPS led us astray. Didnt too often, but it had its glitches.

This trail is quite rough. Grapefruit rocks everywhere and then there is a gate.
PC300248.jpg

PC300249.jpg

And yes. It is steeper than it looks... especially after you stop to open/close the gate.

PC300253.jpg

Another little ways down the road, is another gate.... and just after the gate, Srta Vaca doesnt like motos. Came around a bend and the cow jumps straight up.... I didnt know whether to go off the cliff or between it and the edge.... I went between and grabbed clutch.

T.I.M.

We get down the road and have lunch. Across the valley are a few homes in ruins.
PC300259.jpg

We had lunch at an old home site too.

This is where I find the giant asparagus.
PC300263.jpg


And after our spam and crackers, we have suckers.

We missed the harvesting in this valley.

PC300276.jpg

If you look really closely, there be a horse pulling a plow on the hill.

PC300277.jpg

This is Mimbres. My favorite village from this trip. They also have the coldest cokes.

Roadside burros.

Farther up into the mountains, the maiz was still being harvested.

PC300301.jpg

On to the "Dual Sport Double Dragon"


Let me learn you about the lesson I teached myself. DONT screw around with prickley pear. They suck! I saw some on the roadside... went a plucked one off the cactus. Of course I had my gloves on so I didn think anything of it.... until I go to take off. The dang trichomes(thorns on the prickley pear) that blessed me with the irritation and necessity to buy new gloves. My gloves were full of the trichomes. I rode the rest of the day without gloves... and up to 12000ish feet. It sucked. And it sucked to pull the trichomes out of my fingers. Dang trichomes.
Effin prickley pears.

After the dual sport dragon, we crossed pavement.
PC300308.jpg


A wise man once said that north is always up on the map. So to go north, you go up. Lets go to the top of the world then.

To go up. To go up, you must go on this road. This road sucks. I hated it. To go up, you go up this road.
PC300310.jpg


This is the only place where Ricardo's bike wanted to take a nap... he was leading and made it most of the way around the corner and I didnt get the chance to catch him on the downside.
PC300311.jpg


See Richard run.
PC300314.jpg


PC300315.jpg

See, the views are worth it. The road sucks.

PC300320.jpg

Golf, anyone?

PC300325.jpg

Thats Galeana down the hill and on the otherside of the ridge.

PC300327.jpg


For those who want to check it out... this is the Dual Sport Double Dragon

Ewan McGreggor, eat your heart out.
PC300343.jpg




I started downhill quicker than Richard and Jim. Probably 10 minutes before. I found a decent area to possibly camp, and waited. 10 minutes went by... Maybe they just took a break coming down. 20 minutes went by... they'll be around the corner soon. 30 minutes went by... oh crap, something happened.

PC300347.jpg

Watch where you squat.



I was postponing the inevitable of having to ride BACK up to the top of Potosi. At the 30 minute mark I started back up. Around every corner I was hoping I would see them. 15 minutes of going up the mountain I finally rounded a switchback to see Richard. Apparently he lost a couple bolts. One in is subframe! So his handling went to pot perdy quick. Well good, atleast neither of them got hurt.

We went down to 7,000 feet, found a good campsite. Richard setup camp. I cooked.
PC300353.jpg


Richard should have some more photos of the campsite. I leave you with this last picture for the evening.

Mexico is a great place to ride DS. All of the news that gets North of the Border seems to distort the true face of Mexico. You won't find people anywhere in the world who are more generous or warm than the Mexicans.

Quality water? oh where is the picture?


Here it is.
PC300293.jpg

PC300295.jpg

This was taken directly downstream of a ranch. We used to water for cooking and cleaning... none of us got sick.

As far as finding water? Bienvidas farmacias (Goodlife Pharmacy) has a nice selection of .5ltr to 1.5ltr bottles. Mexico isnt unlike the US, you can get purified bottled water at most gas stations. Remote locations... you're better off drinking cokes or beer... "No tenemos agua," was the common response.


Gasolina. We filled up every 80 miles or so. 109 was the farthest we went without gas, but that was hwy... gas could be found though. Can be done as frequently as 50miles if you ask around a little.

Pumps like the US. Pumps out of large barrels. Pumped into buckets and then gravity fed into your bike. We got it all.

We went to sleep with full bellies and stary skies and awoke to a beautiful sunrise and growling stomaches. Oatmeal cooked with filtered cow poo water.

This morning we headout to Galeana to get gasahol and then head south to Real de Catorce. A lot of hwy today... I whined and moaned about it. Straight roads. Knobbies. Windshield strapped to the back.

In Galeana, we stopped at a farmacia and we were promptly attacked by a pack of wild chihuahuas.
PC310356.jpg


Remember my experience with the prickley pear???
PC310359.jpg

I learned two new words this day. "Ferrateria" and "Guantes" . The gloves are reminiscent of Michael Jackson's stylin gloves. Or maybe I am really too young to remember?

PC310358.jpg

Head south out of Galeana.

Take in the wildlife.
PC310365.jpg


South of town you can get a good view of Cerro Potosi. Look closely you can see God's golfball. Not Allah's golfball, we're in Mexico, and Mexicans are Catholic.

We were instant celebrities. Never before had they seen this many gringos pass through their town on motos.
The senor with the white hat... has worked in Arkansas and Minnesota.

While on the hwy, I noticed the steeple of an iglesia.

IMG_0255.jpg

IMG_0256.jpg

There was a big compound here. The church and several side buildings. I'm guessing a town was formed here. Maybe a nunastary or munkastary.
IMG_0257.jpg

IMG_0261.jpg

Whatever it was, it is in ruins now.
IMG_0262.jpg

IMG_0268.jpg
The silt was a few inches deep here.

Replace our motorbikes and helmets with horses and hats... listen to the wind blowing through the trees... if only the surroundings could magically change to the old days. Then you realize you are on a motorcycle adventure in Mexico.

Richard mentioned the road to R14. Its best when hit at 50mph. 60mph seemed too squirrelly. 50 was good.

Monkey? what Monkey?

I went first. Richard Second. Jim last.

Now thats a nice ***.


Going back to Real.


Rubber side up.... going downhill.....

Rubber side down... the right way to go down the hill.....


At the bottom of the mountain of Real de Catorce, is a small village. Actually, it is sporadic, but about 3-5 miles long, roughly following a riverbed. It was very narrow, and there were lots of kids... I was actually worried one might run infront of me so I went slow... Jim gave out more suckers.


People in the states would kill for this type of jeep.... and we saw several!



Jim adventure riding in Mexico...


I think he's enjoying it.:nod This is his 'muy fuerte' look.


Someone said they like my self portraits, so here you go.

Now we are down the hill. Off to the dessert, or desert, desert for dessert.

Really like your photographs. You have a great eye.
And just a small correction:

"Bienvidas farmacias (Goodlife Pharmacy)"


The name is "Farmacias Benavides". Benavides is the last name of the founder.

Real de Catorce was a pretty cool place to spend New Years and a town I'd like to spend another day walking around in next time. The tunnel from the east side of town is over a mile long through the mountain and is the primary entrace to the town. Traffic is one way and the tunnel floor is slickr'n greased pig snot. I think Scott goosed his throttle in the tunnel and almost dropped his camera and more. His video should be pretty cool once it's compiled.

The architecture is Real de Catorce is pretty cool...

100_1418.jpg


This guy rode in on the burro and as he hopped off he turned around and punched the burro in the face. It stumbled down the hill a bit before righting itself.

100_1440.jpg


After our night of deep slumber interupted by M80's outside our window we took to the hills west of Real de Catorce in search of a steeper exit. Beautiful vistas...

100_1455.jpg


100_1458.jpg


100_1445.jpg


Finally we headed back to the little town after realizing that the route we had planned to take was no more than a narrow goat path. The downhill route was more hand laid stone.

100_1472.jpg


After descending a few 1000 feet we were back in the valley jumping speed bumps and followed the rail line north out of Estacion de Catorce before heading east.

100_1475.jpg


Lots of prickly roadside diversions...

Now the route to Catorce from Galeana was all blacktop and much of it was VERY straight. Aiming for a more interesting return trip we scooted north about 20 miles on highway 57 and then turned east to cross the mountains by dirt. This was by far our best decision of the trip. Using our superb sense of direction and a little help from the E32 mapset we navigated out way north and northeast back to Galeana. This took the better part of 2 days as we were plauged by several wrong turns and a flat tire on Jim's beamer.

Road leading east from highway 57.

100_1477.jpg


After a lunch stop on the hill we were ready for some more

100_1479.jpg


Spent several hours negotiating our way through SMALL towns and wide open washes. A lot of it looked like this...

100_1485.jpg


Unfortunately about 4pm Jim's tires picked up the first of 2 flats he had on the trip. Both were in the front, so we made short work of the tube switch. A calibrated trash-bag and stack of rocks comes in handy.

100_1482.jpg


After fixing Jim's flat we rode for another hour before settling for camp in a valley all to ourselves. The ony thing we heard that night was a lonely coyote.

BTW Beef Stroganoff is my favorite freeze-dried meal. Mmmm good. Scott also whipped up some 2 year old freeze dried cheesecake. Surprisingly good.

The next day we broke camp, push started Jim's bike...those pesky BMW's are always having issues, and pushed on to find a route back to civilization. Traversing some routes that were clearly used for nothing more than hearding goats we made our way back to blacktop. Heading north for about 20 miles on the slap found us turning east yet again to find our dirt way back to Galeana. Luckily E32 and mother nature provided all the elements...

100_1493.jpg


100_1495.jpg


In Galena we picked up some lunch at a square-side stand and headed back out the DSDoubleDragon towards Mimbres.

100_1500.jpg


Instead of turning east to loop back to Galeana we headed north out of Mimbres towards something something toro...I'll have to look that name up. Beautiful views for the next 30-40 miles.

We just came from that pass.

Not much was seen between the last picture and this picture, but we tried taking the desert tracks to San Vicente. We came, we saw, we turned around at the fence.
Jim wasnt enjoying the double track bulldust on his loaded down dakar.


Sooooo back to the Hwy. I wanted to avoid hwy today, and kind of showed my annoyance because I wanted to go towards San Vicente, taking a desert route. Whine whine, MMMMM MMMMM. The route we took, is probably better, but more pavement, maybe only 50 miles.


Richard covered our lunch spot pretty well.
He didnt cover the white rock road....
White rock road.... white dust.... white boogers


I dont know the name of this town, but everyone was extremely friendly and remember the fella on the caballo? If you notice the big mound behind Richard, the fella on the caballo was atop it when I pulled into the town, and he raced down behind us. He streeeeetched his hand to give shake ours.


Their directions to El Pequeno was to go down he road and take a right.


Yeh.... well that wasnt the right road..... Back to the town. Antes de la agua. Yep... this is the right road.



Oh, on the rong road back a couple pics. Full of sand. Deep washes. Jim lowered his tire pressure... we get going a little ways and while waiting for Richard to pee again, I noticed his front tire was a little low.... "Well, I did just lower it, We useta run 12psi in our tires." Me- Yeh, well yall didnt run on many rocks either....


Yep. He got a flat.

And in the desert.... you must find something to hold the bike up with... here was our solution. Of course Jim parked atleast 100ft from the 20lb rocks...

They nearly put the tire back on and started airing it up.... well, of course, I'm documenting the process. I ask if they made sure there wasnt anything stuck in the tire..... Its a **** good thing Scott was there to save the day again!




Bike pron



Reinstalling the tire.


Jim watering the desert plants.... We marked the location on the GPS. this time next year, we are going to go back to the same place to see if the vegetation has increased in size, color, and function.






More sand and washes. Jim, come this way.

In some places, you hit the sand and it explodes. Watch the Dakar rally. Sand flies in front of you. Several instances, Richard and I hit the sand so hard that it plumed up in front of us and then hit our legs... pretty hard. First time for that to happen to me. I like desert for dessert.



I loved this stuff. Jim hated it. Of course, I hated the road up Cerro Potosi, Jim loved it. Richard stayed at a Holiday Inn Express the night before both of these... so he was good.


Iglesia en el medio de nowhere.



Jim giving suckers to kids....


Kids running from Jim...

This is the sight where Richard's bike messed up a bit. He began noticing a lot of drag from his bike. So we stopped to check it out, sure enough the rear caliper locked up. Our guess was a rock. We unbolted the capliper, kicked it off took the pads off and opened the piston. Put back together, problem solved.



Someone told us not to camp in Mexico. We dont listen too good.

Beef Stroganoff for Richard. Red Beans and Rice for Jim. Steak and potato stew. 2year old cheesecake for dessert.




We shut our eyes with the yelps of a coyote on the surrounding hills.
