Colorado-Mexico

finally on my way towards Mexico
Hi folks!
After some months of "detours" : ) all over BC, Yukon and Alaska I am now in Colorado and thinking about the further way towards South America. I would love to read all this thread about Mexico but I have to sleep sometimes : ).
My questions to you experienced fellows:
-which direction should I aim at, considering border crossing and places to go to?
-the TVIP: my bike is registred in Canada, using the adress of friends, but I am German. I do have the Canadian insurance papers with my name and the mentioned Canadian adress, but no title (maybe it is at my friends`place by now- I will ask). Could that be a problem?
-this insurance expires in december. Does that play any role considering that I want to get a Mexican one anyway?
any suggestions which one to take?

I am looking forward to any helpful answers!
Thanks a lot!

Hi Tobi!

Congrats for the trip. Anywhere to read about your trip/see the photos/videos?

Have fun, my friend (="pasalo bien, amigo"),

Esteban

Saludos Esteban!
Good to hear from you! Thanks
Well, I post some pics and write a bit on my facebook-page.
Did not want to HAVE to do it, every day kind of...but maybe I should do something on one of the forums as well...

It is all good!
Take care.
