    Riding In Mexico

    For those of you who have ridden in Mexico, did you buy insurance for your motorcycle and if so from whom?

    When we went I always bought it for our vehicles. We hadn’t had a chance to take the bikes but I would definitely get it. I think it is required. I usually bought it right before the border, but you can get it online now. Here is one example.

    I think I’ve used Mexinsure here at TJ.

    Don't do it. ….. I have ridden the Baja to Cabo and the mainland to Guatemala on road bikes…. Mexico is a absolutely beautiful country filled with warm and friendly people...... but it is also very dangerous......because the cops and robbers will rob you of everything you have and you will be happy to escape with your life..

    I ran out of luck and was thrown in prison.... not jail...prison...my only crime being that I was a "rich" American....I managed to bribe the Warden and the Mayor and got out on bail and rode the back roads all night to escape across the border at Nogales ….only because the Mexican Border Patrol were sleeping... spent the next week crapping and throwing up and thanking my lucky stars I was safe in the USA...

    If you go, you will need car/bike insurance..... and make sure your health insurance will cover you...... and buy a medical evacuation policy because if you have a accident and survive it...they will kill you in the hospital...

    Read the State Department Level 2 travel advisory for Mexico....No Muy Bueno ….

    The medical evacuation insurance is a good idea .

    Where are you heading? I've got a buddy who winters in Baja in the the Cabo/Los Barilles/La Paz area. He camps in his Delica van and has a TW (not a forum member - yet). I can connect you if you're interested.

    At this point I am just investigating what is needed to travel in Mexico on a motorcycle. I was thinking of crossing into Mexico at Yuma and travelling east and head back into the USA below Tucson. Not sure if this is worth while and Linda would prefer that I do not try this at this time.
