I have done this trip using various routes many many times and am leaving around mid Oct...I live in Southern California and have traveled to gdl for the last 30 years...born in Puerto Rico married a Mexican 36 years speak fluent spanish and know the ins and outs of the culture...anyone leaving during that time frame is welcome to join me. My plan for this trip is to enter thru Nogales which is by far one of the best ports of entry between Calif and Texas...couple of buddies from the Mexico side plan to ride north to meet up with me and return to gdl...
I'm in Toronto planning on leaving for Mexico and Central America and likely South America after that. Leaving Nov 17th most likely. Looking to see the sites+culture, ride in mountains and light dirt trails, camp quite often, mostly avoid the larger cities (other than Mexico City to see some friends) and probably Puerto Vallarta. I'm familiar with non-bike travel in Mexico and Nicaragua and speak passable Spanish.
Bo Red and Adam, it sounds like your trips leave earlier but are pretty similar - if you or anyone else is interested in meeting up in the GTA or en-route I'd be happy to hear from you. My plans are to go where ever seems good next - not to be too rigid about it.
I'm on a KLR650.

Hi Mike (maja).
We met at HU CA (Joel and Taz on the Super Sherpa 250s). We feel your pain about the wind--three days across AZ blasting in our face. We crossed today at Aqua Prieta (Douglas AZ). Heading to Parral, then Durango, then Mazatlan over the next few days (maybe many days if this wind continues). You can reach us directly at fredsuleman AT hotmail DOT com. Bye for now.
Taz and Joel
I have (sofar) been through Canada (Inuvik-Nova Scotia and many ports in between) and plan to cross into Mexico around the end of October,after a brief sojourn in Europe with the good wife.I am at present in Boston.
The Spanish is very much at the limited end of the spectrum.
The bike is an R1200GS Adventure, which has only been down the road once on this trip.
Some company would be good on the run down south(TDF,eventually)
Give me a yell.
I'll be staying with friends for a couple of days in San Antonio (23-27th Oct) and then crossing into Mexico at McAllen, though this is fluid as a mate has suggested that Neuvo Laredo might be better.
My plan is to go down the Gulf coast.
Of course I am interested in hooking up with yourself and any other folks going my way.
Hi Errol, I reckon on crossing the Mex/Guatemala border around the 5/6th Nov. How does that fit in with your plans as I am still trying to put a group (2 or more) together to make the CA borders a slightly better experience. Ride safe.
