I've had this idea to head to mazatlan or puerta valarta ;mexico; on my bike . Has anyone ever gone down there on their bike . I'd be by myself. would u consider it safe , with all the drug problems with the drug cartels etc. , u hear about going on now , near the U.S. / mexican border?

Wow dean, I here you it probably would be a fantastic ride but I can tell you that I don't have the %^*&@ to do it. Too many places to ride in the States to take the chance on that, considering the steaming pot that is going down on the border for me.

if your bike is stolen there is no way to recover it and you should check with your insurance company before you leave to make sure that you are covered

I live near the border and I will not go over. The gangs from Mexico City have expanded to the border towns and have made it to dangerous. Have friends that go over daylight hrs only. Don't go by yourself--is my advice.

Dean - My brother and a Buddy of his go down to Mexico every spring. He picks up his guns as soon as he crosses the border and all is fine. He has only been shot at twice. This is the story he tells us but he is a big "Bull **" He obviously has no problems because he keeps going back. He doesn't have to worry about getting his bike stolen becasue he drives a Harley. Me, I would not think about going until I have visited all the other beautiful places in Canada and the States.

Get some insurance to cover your bike.
Don't eat or drink anything that wasn't in a sealed container.
Watch your back, best have someone with you for that.
Ask yourself why?........Mexicans don't stay in Mexico!

I went several years back with about 20 other bikes, we bought Mexican insurance just before we crossed the border. I wouldn't go today, not with the way thing are down there and besides, there are to many great places to see here in the good old USA. We went to Rosa Rita beach for lobster and shopping.
