SURELY someone has ridden to mexico in the past year or so? i'm still gathering info...i may even go this summer. weather is an issue for me now. I haved no idea when the best time to go would be considering heat or inclement weather. I'm also thinking that riding from fla for 4 days, the nearest border would be the Texas coast area. then thinking to diagonal across to the pacific.

Mexico

Hi guys - I'm just reading this thread. I've been riding 2-up in mexico for the past 2 weeks and we're going down to guatemala. I can confirm it's a beautiful country, great food, very nice people. Not a single problem so far.

I am also in the market for a taller windshield for my '09 wee-strom. If anybody has any tips / ideas on where to get them over here let me know.

Thanks

Thumbs up Taller windshield

I rode through Mexico down to Guatemala last April. I spent about a month riding around. I have 650 Wee. I put on a windshield from "California Scientific". It worked out great. They have different sizes to fit the individual rider. I would recommend there product.

harmonicamoon,

I was in your town few weeks ago.. Beautiful town! Unfortunately I wasn't on a bike as the Harelys available in Playa del Carmen were not to my liking so we just rented a car.

I think all your tips make sense! Mexico is a wonderful country with wonderful people and hopefully my wife and I can get down there again but with bike(s).

Would have been great to see you, Tom. No matter if you come in a car. I can still share knowledge about my pueblito. It is beautiful. There are some incredible cenotes. Many aren't in the guide books.
Come back soon!

Under Mexican law, you MUST have Mexico insurance provided by a Mexican insurance company that is authorized by Mexico’s National Insurance Commission. Your U.S. and Canadian auto insurance is NOT valid for liability accidents in Mexico.
