Monterrey natives...question for ya!

I am planning a week long trip to the mountains south of monterrey for July 4th. Me and my brother, driving down, renting bikes in Monterrey, and cruising slowly on road, and maybe mild dirt, for 4-5 days. Not exactly Adventure Touring, but with tank bags and backpacks, staying in hotels.

Every time I'm in Mexico I love looking at all the Mexican basic transportation bikes. So, in the interest of doing the area in the Mexican styl I'm trying to find two 125 - 150cc Honda style "Cargo" or "Titan" or "Tool" single cylinder bikes to do the riding portion of the trip on. Renting would be best, but if it comes to it, I'd buy a couple of new bikes for the trip and leave them there for the next trip. Does anyone have good contacts (english speaking is good, but my brother / fellow rider is fluent in Spanish) who would know a rental company or cool dealer / shop in Monterrey?

For all the critics, I've read about guys riding these little bikes 50,000 k on around the world trips, so please save you cc bashing. My brother's experience on bikes is kinda limited (minibikes as kids, a summer on a big wheel 200, a year on a moped) so I want something he can have absolute confidence on. He's a Mexico lover, lived there two years, so as long as he's comfortable on the bike he should do just fine. Made in Brazil for the most part, some in China for Honda. 55 MPH top end, 80 MPG, perfect for seeing things around you, not blasting thru it.

The Titan $1800 USD

honda titan

The Cargo (nice rack) $1600 USD

Monterrey natives...question for ya!

The Tool $1400 USD

bikepics 1461713 full

Thanks,

Peter

No, really, it's called the Honda Tool 125.

If you dont mind, could I try to tag along? PM or call me with what I would need to be able to do this. Most likely I wont have the funds, but out of curiosity.

Please, unless you go there in a regular basis or lived there recently, stop telling people to be careful with the zetas.

Ahem, I'm from MTY, but I'm no help since I started riding here in the states.

Ask Pester, he may know something.

I'd recommend going past Cola de Caballo and making a run through Galeana. It's a sleepy little town and there are always DS'ers there on the weekends.

You should rent an xr250 or something similar.

BTW Peter, since you are going to be so close, if you have the time try to go to 4 Cienegas; it is awesome and only about 250 miles from Monterrey.

Street bikes are fine, and if small can easily be ridden over tougher terrain than your average fully loaded KLR.
That's true, but can you cruise at 80mph on the highways?

I've love to do that on an xr250...and that's why I can't wait to get my hands on a new wr250.
