This is the Mexico I had experienced as a child many many years ago, but had sadly forgotten. Thanks for the pics, they brought back some old forgotten memories.

That was an awesome ride you guys had. I hope someday in the future to do the same.
I don't think this Mexico has changed since you last visited. Probably the same old trucks making the rugged trips. You should really come. We could use 5 more native spanish speakers, it would richen the experience to actually be able to talk with the locals. Roberto, with Motodiscovery, came along and you can imagine how much more natural the trip was for those riding with him as translator.

Awesome write-up! I am envious....

Pics are back up. Here's a bit more edited helmet cam video from the trip from a fellow Mex Trekker, takin it easy, with music tuned more to a MotoHouston speed.

The first of 28 more and more difficult water crossings. Dolores from Katy on her 650 first. Milton Otto, our 64 year old bad second. I'm the Yellow DRZ at the end actin a foo for the cameras. "Hey, hold my beer."


And here is a typical water crossing down the road (Go Dynamo!)

687595345 4Tbv3 L

If ya wanna read other takes on the week's rides check this thread and skip past mine to the other stories:

http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=43729

And then check ADV Rider and search for Mex Trek and you'll find a few more in process.

thanks for the pix and ideas, i want to try those water crossings southeast of galeana, been all over north to rayones, cienega del toro, los mimbres, dddd, up cerro potosi, south to zaragoza falls, pozo de gavilan, puente de dios, and much more and it still seems that I'll never finish riding every possible road or trail. as you were all riding near galeana, me and 6 other adv riders were exploring southwest of allende thru rain, mud, and some of the worst roads, we did 14 miles in 4.5 hours on friday, had 30+ falls to portero redondo, sat-one rider left his bike and rode the bus home, everyone else managed to get out of the mountains to villa de santiago, sunday we went home, so our group and mektrek riders did not see each other at all but as advbrothers we were experiencing the same fun.

Shadman,

I just found my way over here. Nice to see your report over here, and I see by your post count you have been here for a while. We need to link up with ChangoGS some time for a beer over on the west side of town. He's another "go south of the border" type dude. Maybe Panama soon?

Cheers,

Mike

John was behind me and saw the awesomeness. I didn't even hit my helmet, but I just slid to the edge and then proceeded to pick up the bike. No damage done other than a bent clutch lever and ruining the grip. Bars and other parts are straight.
Yes, 'tis was slick as I experienced.
I still had an awesome day!

Sure Mike, sounds like a plan. I know Chango, I have a sidecar rig pretty much like his and we've chatted on the phone a couple of times. He was sighted in the mountains last year, I believe!
