Reader Ride: Baja, Mexico

Jan 03, 2017 View Comments by

The year was 1972 … the last time my old man sat on a vinyl seat, pulled on a helmet, and rode off into the sunset. So, when I approached him about riding bikes in Baja for a month long journey down Mexico’s infamous peninsula, I was surprised he agreed to go. However, my father […]

Return to the Great Wide Open

Mar 02, 2014 View Comments by

I don’t need to tell anyone that most of the U.S. has been experiencing one long, cold, and snowy winter. Shortly after the holidays were over, Kris and I started looking for an escape. Having had a great time on our first trip to Big Bend (see the April 2014 issue of RoadRUNNER), we decided […]

Aug 09, 2013 View Comments by

After 2665 miles and 14 days, our journey has come to a conclusion. Recent road closures meant changing our destination from Antelope Wells to Columbus, NM. Reaching the nondescript border town meant several miles of pavement and passing an inspection station about 15 miles from the border where we were asked a few questions. It […]

Harley-Davidson’s Mexico City Anniversary Parade

May 17, 2013 View Comments by

Most of the time we tend to think of Harley-Davidson as a truly American phenomenon (as in the United States of America). However, our neighbors to the south are pretty enthusiastic about the Motor Company too. As part of Harley’s ongoing 110th Anniversary celebrations, Mexico City hosted its largest ever motorcycle parade on May 11th. […]

Camping…Whoops!

Mar 25, 2013 View Comments by

Less than one week into Mexico, I find myself staring into my GPS, and then back at this “road” that has become more or less a goat path. At a dry creek bed, I dismount my Husky TE610 and track on foot to see where the path leads. I don’t want to get stuck out here […]

Parking

Feb 04, 2013 View Comments by

In 2010, four of us had the silly idea of taking a motorcycle ride in Mexico. Now riding bikes in Mexico is not silly at all, I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. I am all about riding south of the border and have no qualms about the safety aspect or anything else. […]

The 50-mile Dead End Road

Dec 06, 2012 View Comments by

You can never fully trust the GPS. In this case it was a blessing. Had I known I was embarking down a 50-mile dead end road I never would have had the following experience. The year was 2009 and I was traveling south in the Yucatan of Mexico heading for Belize. My GPS showed a […]
