Looking for a possible ride partner for Mexico trip this winter/early spring. I've been before and will go again, partner or not, but the idea of a ride partner that's a good fit has always interested me. I like riding alone, but enjoy an English speaking person for the evening sit down,etc. I like riding alone,but two make for a bit safer trip. I like riding alone, but the room is cheaper split two ways.Bottom line is-it's hard to find ride partners where it all comes together, but I'm willing to try,thus this thread.
You need to have a month or so of time or it wont work.You need to have your "kitchen pass in order too"! I am somewhat flexible on entry point or timing of trip.I could be real flexible as I'm retired, but family first at holiday time. I ride R1150R on road only. I ride fast & long in USA when needed ,but Mexico is different(no really fast and no nighttime riding) and I do like to "smell the roses"! That means that, see how far you can go in a day and passing up historical stuff and special things to do is out of the question. Also out is not being willing to spend the night in interesting colonial towns.I do not stay in pricey hotels and I don't camp in Mexico.While there are places it works OK down there, most places I would not and so the space for that gear is dear.
Intentions for this trip down: Visit Copper Canyon for several days,Visit the DF/Mexico City(I have a guide already so it's safe!),Chiapas, Belize and Guatemala, maybe Carribean side too.
Lets talk if you have interest.Currently leaning toward late Feb/March departure
Current plan is to depart eastern KY on 2/28/11 for TX entry point.
