From Texas down through Mexico and Central-America in april & may 2012

I just arrived in DallasTX where I start a 6 weeks Biketrip to Costa Rica. I Probably enter Mexico on April 3th.

Looking for company. For Mexico but especially the CA-part. I guess I'll enter Guatemala around april 20.

I'm a swissguy on a KLR650

Maybe I see you soon.

;-) thanks for the warnings..

I already did USA and Canada in 2010. And I had to pick up the bike in Texas so I didn't have much choise. I'm in MexicoCity right now on 2300m. On this altitude it's perfect... But you're probably right, at the coast and in Central-America I0m gonna sweat my ass off
But as long I'm driving I should be good with the BMW-Rally2pro suit and the white helmet...

Hasta luego and good luck in december

You arrived really early but if you stay in the high elevations you will be alright, the coast's will be horrific for heat.

Have a good time and keep the black side down.

Hey theunstoppable, I have a quick question - wanted to send you a private message, but unfortunately, I have not posted frequently enough on HU to get access to that feature yet. Anyway, I am at the Texas border at Brownsville (far east of Texas), and the U.S. officials are scaring the crap out of me about crossing the border. I have been here for several days now trying to make a decision about if / where to cross, and I am having a hard time deciding what to do. What border crossing did you cross at? What major highways did you take to get to Mexico City? Any thoughts you might have on safety along the way would be greatly appreciated as I'm pretty much freaking out about this portion of my trip down to Chile. Thanks man, hope you're enjoying your trip!!!

Hey raj14222

I know there are some mexican guys that ride dual sport in Mexico all the time and I think they live in McAllen and I see them on the website advrider.com so you might be able to connect with them and get the lowdown - You can most likely get on that website and search out Mexico
Good luck with your trip

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
