Hey Kermit and others: heading down from Southern California to Calexico on the 27th or 28th then toward Hermosillo and east. Returning via Baja on either the ferry from Guaymas or Topolobampo pending timing and schedules for those traveling. So far me and Repo4Sale are in the group with a couple from San Diego as a possibility. Taking it easy, doing sites and getting into Creel around the 30th. Contact me here -- perhaps we might meet up with other travelers coming from Nogales in Hermosillo? It's all very flexible at this point.

Hey, howdy, hey all ya folks out there in Moto-Travel Land!
RRRRRRRRRRRRRitmo with an 'r' or 'R'.
I'm a drummer so I picked the spanish word for rhythm here as it relates to my many previous travels to Mexico. I am very excited about participating in the HUBB to share serious and insightful discussion of safe motorcycle randonees.
About myself...yep, I'm a drummer. But I've been down lately for maintenance. I recently had my little red vest re-sewn. And my little marching boots needed to be re-soled. My two little cymbals needed some tuning so I had to unglue them from my little paws and my Fez was getting a little frayed so that went to the haberdasher as well. Lastly, it sure was cold but I had my fur taken to the dry cleaners for some spot cleaning. Oops, almost forgot! I had my little curly tail re-curled for the big show comin' up.
Yep, don't let anybody fool ya...bein' a professional wind-up, cymbal-clappin' monkey doll is tough work and it takes a lot of personal sacrifice.
But in the end, it's the kind of work that allows me to pursue the demanding sport of motorrad as a disciplined and no-nonsense aficionado.
Riding Partner needed...
Okay, so I'm brand new to this BB posting reply stuff, I mistakenly placed the below message as a new topic, and feared that no one would find it, so I'm copying back to this discussion thread. Sorry for the junk.
Thanks, David "hope I find a partner" Bosley,
I am back to MC riding after 15 years of being without. Considering riding to the HU meet in Copper Canyon, Mexico on my new '03 Tiger.
No riding partner yet, interested in meeting up with someone(okay, anyone!), as the limits of my Spanish is probably to order too many cervesas, and/or get into big trouble.
Leaving from Denver, headed south on I-25 to Albuquerque, NM, then hope to not "take the wrong turn in Albuquerque.." to quote Bugs Bunny.
Anyone care to take a "newbie" distance rider under a proverbial wing??? I've never left the states, and probably too nervous to attempt this completely on my own.
Please reply if you might be able to travel together.
Hello to everybody from Gibsons,BC,Canada!
A newbie here and just found out about this BB. I'm going to the national HOG rally in Morelia, Michoacan for Oct.24,24,26 and will be returning by way of the festivities in CC. I'm travelling solo, second time driving in Mexico, first time on the bike. Is anybody coming to this event from the south? Grant has given me some ideas on a route. Hey Ritmo, como estas? Hablo espanol un poquito. Lo he estudiado por unos pocos anos y por un mes en GDL. Any info you can supply is appreciated, and anybody wishing to share accomodation in Creel (one of those cabins looks cool!) I'm a cleancut, non-smoking friendly guy. I'm leaving Vancouver,BC on Oct.8 with the bike in the truck and unloading it in San Diego for 38 days of travel in the lower US and Mexico. Sure wish I'd known about this BB sooner but I'll be checking on the Net during my travels.
See you all there! Gord
Hi I'm totally new to all this moto travel stuff and I'm 90% sure of headin' down to ol'Mehico. I've driven extensively thoughout mex in various contraptions, so I lively jaunt down to Creel shouldnt be a problem, barring any new bike paperwork issues and properly kitting out my bike before then. I plan on leaving SoCal 26-27th and Heading back by 2-3rd. I'd like to hook up with other riders anywhere from TJ, to Nogalas.
