Kurt - JSherm

The site for the temporary importation permit is

https://www.banjercito.com.mx/iitv/iitv_en.php

It is in english, mostly. I just filled mine out and is a little tricky so if you need any help send me an e and I'll give you my phone#. I did it this way last year and it will grease the skids at the border to have it filled out beforehand.

I'll be crossing at Douglas or Naco early on the 13th. I'm planning a mostly dirt ride to Creel.

Speaking of dirt... Anyone interested in some dirt roading it that's crossing at Ojinaga? I have some topo maps (paper and GPS). Done it from just west of Chiuhuahua a few years ago.

BTW, there is a camp ground (RV park) in Presidio. I guess I missed that on the way through last year. Two hotels too! Heck, they have a website....

Jim,

You're notes worked just fine. Got the document and printed it out, so I guess I'm good to go.<G>

Thanks for your help.

I don't know if it's the same one you are talking about, but there is a campground a few miles east (downriver) from Presidio, across the highway from the golf course (seriously). I stayed there last year.

Trying to figure out my itinerary.
I am planing to cross at Douglas on the 13th and try and make it to Creel by dusk, but I'd go the Hermosillo route if others are going down at the same time.

Jacob,

Where in Austin are you planning on changing your tires? Are you bringing them or buying? I may be interested in doing the same. There's a BMW/Triumph dealer there I think.

Hi, I`m trying to go to the Copper Canyon HU meet, but I have only a Visa
debit card.
Will a debit card work for the temporary vehicle import permit?

This site says a Check card will NOT do-

http://www.coppercanyon-mexico.com/cc-mex/cchere.htm
"If you drive your car, you must also purchase a bond (temporary import
permit) on your vehicle at the border customs station in Mexico. The bond
cost is $15 US and is good for six months with multiple entry. You must also
leave a credit card (not check card) number for a deposit stating that you
will not sell the car in Mexico."


And this page says-". The process it is easier if you have a credit or debit
card at your name."

Kurt,
I believe you are referring to the place I have in mind. I believe they are called Lone Star BMW. I haven't contacted them yet. Maybe I'll try today. I'll tell them there may be more than one person interested and let you know. If anyone know a private shop in the area I'd like to know but this was the closest shop to the border that was listed in the BMWOA book.

Hey, I'm having trouble finding large patches and tube tire repair kits without any pumps or CO2 cartridges. Any ideas. I order one kit with patched and a pump but now I just want more patches, because I'm sure I'll be learning the hard way

Any places retail places on the way through Texas to Presidio would be very helpful.

Try NAPA stores and other auto supply places, they usually have patch kits. REMA kits are the best if you can find them. Also try bicycle stores.

Don't forget to get a BIG patch in case the tire is badly damaged and needs patching. A "radial tire boot patch" is good. Carry a spare tube if you're unsure of your skills.

I think the tire changing seminar will be well-attended!

Those of you worried about tires might want to just have them delivered to a motorcycle shop in Texas. Three years ago, I called around Austin, TX and happened upon a shop called "The Bike Doctor." This is a small shop--one guy with maybe an assistant or two.

Bob is the owner, and he gave me awesome advice for my trip to Central America. He also taught me how to change a motorcycle tire before the trip. He performs some maintenance for the http://www.rosensrides.com/ tour group, so he has experience with travelers on dual-sport bikes. You should be able to order tires from him and get them delivered there. You'll need to give him a credit card to order the parts.

Their web site is here. http://www.motorcyclepartsforless.com/

He says he checks e-mail about once a week, so you'll have better luck calling (512) 454-1210. See you folks in Creel!
