Good to see you Allen!

The TKCs I put on the 1150 in August are toast now....so I've got a couple more coming, and will put a new set on before the next Mexico trip!

At least gas is cheap, as tires can add up!

How's the new 1200GS Adventure!

We are stealing this thread-sorry!

H,
I am, in fact getting it today. 6000 mile service, and a bunch of electrical add-ons, intercom, Centech fuse box and socket ports. Had the final drive drive cleaned for mental security! Leaving it in Phx for the winter. I'll give you a call one of these days.
Allen.

road to Batopilas

I rode a goldwing honda down there in 2000 and it was a 1981 1100. I have a friend that rode in with a honda goldwing 1500 with his wife on the back. She did not ride back out on the bike as they were with another guy on another goldwing and he could not ride his out. They put his in a truck and they both rode out in the truck and the other guy rode his goldwing out. Just take it slow. They take all kinds of pickups and school buses on that road every day. There are spots that you just have to go slow but you should have no major problems. It is a great trip.

Bump for any current conditions of the Rio Urique crossing between Batopilas and Tubares....

Anyone have some recent info on water depth and current? We'll be there in about a week with 5 big dual sports!
