Finally Headed to Mexico Tomorrow!!!

After 103 days on the road we have travelled from Vancouver to Inuvik and are now in Texas. Our route has taken us thru 2 provinces, 2 territories, and 19 states. We are waiting for tires to arrive tomorrow then we will cross at Del Rio!!! So excited to finally head South! We have not seen any overland bikers in many weeks so we hope to meet some in Mexico.

Hi Saralou,

I'll be heading south later this month. You're in for some fun! Although when I rode to Panama and back a couple years ago I didn't run into any other overlanders. I was riding back roads so that was part of it, but I was expecting to meet others on the road. Maybe this year will be different.

I will follow your ride report. Maybe see you down the road in Central or South America.

Safe travels!

Kindest regards,
John Downs

Mex City

You are welcome to stay with us in Mex City. We will put you up, cook you breakfast and even show you around. All at no charge! (well you may have to wash the dishes)
I normally met people outside the city and guide them in.

Welcome to the journey. I crossed the border in NM about 10 days ago so I am a little ahead of you. In Guanajuato now. I have not met any over landers yet, but I keep hoping I will to. I am moving further south tomorrow, but feel free to holler if we ever get close. So far I would recommend at least Zacatecas and GTO. The Festival cervantino starts today and goes for about 3 weeks. Looks like fun.

Horrific service Houston BMW

Well we are " still headed" to Mexico. After a two day ORDEAL at Gulf Coast BMW . Do not go there when in Texas they are totally incompetent . Locals in San Antonio said the only reliable service in the state is on Austin. Advice too late for us! Headed for Monclova in the morning!!!!!

I was reading this ride report of some nice roads south of Monclova that a couple fellows were riding two days ago.

You have to scroll towards the bottom of the page on this ride report:

Round the World on a ThumperÂ…Adventure before Dementia - Page 17 - ADVrider

You and your hubby might enjoy cranking through the mountains and canyons on those roads southeast of Saltillo. I know I'll be checking them out in a couple weeks when I head down.

Have fun!

Best,
John Downs
