Copper Canyon 2004

Just posting an update and reminder:

Everything is good, we have lots of stuff happening, and lots of rides planned for you. There's tech seminars on Saturday, from tire changing to tools to take to paperwork, carnets etc., so don't plan on riding far Saturday. (Seminars in the afternoon.)

Anyone have any other specific Seminar sugestions?

Rooms are filling fast, so book soon. There is lots of camping available on site, so no worries if you're going to camp. The prices this year are much better than last, especially if you share a cabin.

Santa Rosalia Ferry info here http://www.ferrysantarosalia.com/

See you all there!

Grant

Anyone know where to get full coverage insurance for Mexico? I have a new bike (finanaced) and need proof for the lender. Sandbourn does it for 4 wheel vehicles but not for motorcycles.

www.mexadventue.com I've used them two years in a row. Full coverage on my KTM is about $80 for 6-days. Your finance company will require it and your itinerary in order to send you a notarized letter... as you probably already know.

good luck!

Oddly engough, my insurance co. (Progressive) will cover everything but liability. They will even cover towing to the border. Go figure. So with that and liability from another company the bank should be happy.

I just checked mexadventure.com. They only offer liability for the bike I have. Maybe they offer it for other types but not Triumphs.

Call them if the site doesn't mention your bike. My KTM wasn't listed either but a simple phone call was all it took. They're pretty good to work with. There's also a form to fill out where you can ask them the same question.

Good luck.... hope to see you there!

If you have a Garmin or a Magellan GPS, check out my post at http://www.advrider.com/forums/show...5175#post885175 I think I've found a superb source for GPS maps in which the details are amazing. I've purchased and loaded zone 2 which is Copper Canyon. Appears to be perfect for my needs.

Any recommendations for a good beach town close to the rally. I have about two days after the rally before I'll need to head home. Anyone interested?

Talk to Geraldo Ibarra. I think his email may be on the main info page here. OR, catch him at the event. I'm sure he can make a great suggestion.

I think it's pretty cool that you're coming all the way from NYC. Looking forward to meeting you.

Anyone planning on camping? I don't think anyone did last year (me included) but figured I might give it a go this year since I'll be hauling all that stuff around anyway.

JSherm,

What route do you have planned? I'm expecting to go through at Presidio/Ojinaga.
