It would still be possible to meet Mike in Mazatlan or on the easst coast of Mexico as he heads across to Belize.
It's a bit of a pain not being able to respond directly to you as I don't have sufficient posts to my credit.

Peter, I am planning on visiting family and friends along the way in Michigan, Missouri and Texas, so for the first part of the trip, I am not really flexible on my route (and don't really know how my sister in law would react if I was showing up with 4 or 5 other bikers at her place!!!), but after Dallas, I can try and meet you guys somewhere.
And as I don't have enough messages either, I can't PM you!!!

Ride safe and keep posting...

Regards,

Yannick

There are several of us with the same approximate plan and timing that seem interested in hooking up for parts or all of the ride south. We need to get together on a date and work towards it.
I live near Peterbough, Ontario, ride a KTM 990, am time and route flexible. I would be happy with either the Copper Canyon route or the Baja/ferry to Mazatlan to start.
Another thread (California-South America) started by barbalace has a well experienced and Spanish fluent rider leaving LA in early October. His help could be really useful in CA. I am considering either trying to meet him for his LA departure or meeting him in Mazatlan.

Baja or Copper Canyon ?

We could't decide so we did both - Baja to Santa Rosalita and than crossed to Creel. Should't miss any of this...

Have fun..

Unfortunately I don't have enough posts to do the PM thing. Has much discussion been going on off-line beyond what is being noted here?

My plans are to take a leave of absence from work late October after selling a house. I have a couple of friends/neighbours who did Canada to Buenos Aires summer 2007 and London to South Africa in summer 2008 so I having been hitting them up for info, reading blogs postings, etc. (One of said friends, Tyson, won first prize the for the HU calendar in 2008).

That said, at this point I am not enamoured with the prospect of riding the whole thing solo.

Comments? Opinions? I'd be willing to head out to the Peterborough region for a chit chat -- my parents live around Buckhorn so the trip would be double duty

Hi Turpintine,
I am planning on heading late oct, early nov now... in my business nov and dec are the slow months... I am hoping to visit friends along the way in the states, down to conneticut, then 2 friends are flying in to meet me at Vegas... from there they want to spend 3 days in the canyon... then i would head down through the Baja.... may see friends in L.A as well...
If any of this sounds acceptable to you or if you want to do a part of the states together that would be fine... I am in Ottawa and am doing a 3 days trip to the states next week... but meeting in toronto.. perhaps on the return I can go thru Peterborough... could meet you for a coffee...
my email is simser@rogers.com it is active till the 21st sept..

Tell me if I am wrong but I thought I read somewhere (maybe on this forum but I can't seem to be able to find the right post again!) that in Tecate they don't do the temporary import thing for the vehicles. I know it only means you have to do it later, but still, would be good to know for sure...

thanks...

Hi People, poor Peter (ind500) has had to abort the sortie for a year so I am still looking for a partner or group to traverse CA with. After a great long weekend at the California HU meet I am now in Nevada drifting, or with this wind I really should say tacking my way over to Flagstaff then south to the border. Being retired I'm flexible with time but not with spine (just made that up, maybe I really am a morning person). Give me a PM or use this means if anyone fancies a or chat. Ride safe.
