When I'm not riding street....Mextrek 2015

Sure wish I could get more of my Motohouston peeps to come out and get dirty in Mexico on one of our MexTrek rides. Next one is scheduled for April 2016. All this fun gets crammed into 4 days of riding. It's a 5 day total trip, only 400 miles from Houston, in the (safe) high mountains of Nuevo Leon, Mexico. If you wanna google it, Galeana, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Total cost is under $500 including hotel, food, beer, gas, tolls, and visas. All you need is a dual sport registered in your name and a passport or passport card. We handle all the other logistics. Check out these photos and ask yourself when was the last time you got to ride in these conditions, with no police, no traffic, no park rangers, no angry landowners, no lawyers, and no limits?

******* amazing!

I don't have a DS, but I've always wanted to trailer the 250f somewhere like that and free ride. Not too many places around here I know of to do that.

This looks intensely amazing. Met a guy when we were out riding the sisters and taking his adventure bike to Mexico is like his favorite thing. I kinda regarded it as a little crazy. Guess he's not so crazy after all (sorry JD!)

There's a black DL1000 in the second pic, so a KLR should be more than OK for that trip.

I led this ride on a CRF230F with a baja street legal kit. I was the smallest bike there. But not the slowest. I maintained a 60 mph pace on the 125 miles of highway to the edge of the mountains, that was the hardest part of the ride on my tiny scoot.

Lots of xr400, xr650, klr 650, drz 400, and a scattering of 650 and larger adv bikes attended.

As long as you can run 55 on the highway and get 100 miles of range (i strapped a 1 gal can on my tail and carried all my gear in a backpack) you are good. But, bike must be registered in your name to bring it into Mexico with a TVIP permit and a $200 / 300 deposit. And of course, some dirt experience is needed.

Sounds like an amazing trip. Just bought an adventure touring bike to do stuff like this with. Will maybe do the next one. Got a trip planned in March so can't make this one.

Awesome! I'm this close to getting a DR650. Would love to do exactly this sort of stuff, eventually.

Do y'all split up into fast and slower groups? I'm a dirt noob and won't be flying like in the vid.

I was looking at the CRF250L for a starter bike, but the air cooled 650 thumpers don't look all that much heavier.

Volfy, the 250L is a great bike. Will do everything you need it to do, except haul . I had a couple of guys ride them out to big bend for the rally this spring. Rode all the way there.

Ignore the guys who say you need a 400 or 650 to have fun. I have a blast on my 230, just the highway lugging at 60 - 65 is kinda taxing. My old WR250X could run highway at 76 all day long. I'd guess the CRF250L can do the same, 70 - 75 with no issues.
