Good Afternoon Randy,
Way to go getting down through the cold and wet PNW!
We are two BC natives heading south too (Tofino and Vancouver). Our destination: the mountains and ruins in S. MX and Guat. We're two-up on an R100GS and now in the final few days of ironing out wrinkles. My hope (fingers crossed) is a Sunday departure from Reno NV (1st), and then crossing into MX first thing Wednesday morning (4th). Perhaps there is the possibility of a riding some days together... This is my first time riding south of the border, would be nice to have some friends along!
We too have been going back and forth on routing. Thinking about saving Baja for the way home. If the high interior route is anything like the high desert here in Nevada right now, it is cold! So, we're leaning towards the coastal route, but like you, flexible. Our hope is to take about two weeks to get down to Oaxaxa and then to chill out and explore - so we have some miles to cover!!
Anyway, food for thought... Let's talk! Cheers, James
I find being spontaneous requires a surprising amount of preparation!
