Leaving a bike in Mexico for a week or so

Hi Everyone,

I am am riding a GS1150 ADV down to South America. I will be entering Mexico (mainland) via the USA in the middle of March. I am a Canadian and I have to fly back to Canada for a week or so in the middle of June. I know that I will be still in Mexico in the middle of June so I am going to have to store the bike somewhere. Is there going to be any problems with me leaving Mexico with out the bike? IE: Is my passport stamped indicating that I brought a vehicle into the country? Do I have to leave the counrty with the bike or face heavy fines/penlties/duty? How sticky are the officials? I will have a return ticket. I will be south of Senora state when I have to fly home for a week.

Carlos is right. No one knows or cares that you entered with a bike. No one will make you leave with it before your permit expires either. It's up to you to make sure you exit and cancel your import permit before the expiration date, else all sorts of dire stuff might (or might not) happen. In the meantime, you can enter and leave at will, without any reference to your bike.

Hope that helps.
