    We will depart from the Love?s Truck Stop located at the intersection of Wildhorse Pass Road/Sunburst Road and Interstate 10 at 0900 hours on Saturday, February 22. *This is very clearly marked as Exit Number 162.

    At 1000 we'll meet up with other outlying riders at the McDonald?s Restaurant in Gila Bend. *If you need to have a little snack before we have lunch in Rocky Point do it here!

    I've driven to Rocky Point a few times but never on my bike. But I do recall the need for special insurance. Where can I find out info about it? Are other getting this insurance?

    If someone doesn't have it.

    Having insurance ahead is best but if someone doesn't get insurance you can stop here in Ajo on your way through and pay for just the few days you plan to be in MX. I've used many vendors and all are good but recommend Holt's Shell station on the corner as they are quick and efficient. Takes perhaps 10 minutes. My collision and comprehensive is good there so no need to buy that.

    If you must make a mistake, make a new one each time.

    My girlfriend and I might join you to ride from the starting point unto Gila Bend if it's not a problem. We live in Ahwatukee about 5 to 10 minutes from the Love's but don't have time to join you for the whole trip.

    Just double checking that everybody is a GO for our Rocky Point Ride on 2/22. Donna and I are already booked in Room 605 at Sonoran.

    Papa Chuy will be purchasing insurance on both the BMW K1600GT and Yamaha FJR next week from www.mexpro.com up in Flagstaff, AZ.

    Have a Notarized Letter of Authorization for "FastJoyRide" to operate my FJR in Mexico, Justin Bieber Fan Club Card is Dave's Official ID!

    Mis Muchachos, please update the phone number to call for Jonny at the Sonoran Sky Resort. The Rental Agency let me know they were having an issue with the number they gave us, the calls are going directly to voice mail for some reason.

    Please update the Reservations number to 602-888-9105. Muchas Gracias!

    http://www.mexpro.com 1-888-467-4639 Just purchased Mexican Insurance for my 2013 Yamaha FJR 1300 and my 2012 BMW K1600GT for Saturday 2/22 through Monday 2/24.

    Placed my order with Angel: $61.70 for FJR with value of $13K and $68.55 for Beemer with value of $17K, both insurance policies are underwritten with Ace Seguros.

    There are two "Angels" working at MexPro, Angelica Ford and Angelica Garcia. *They have worked with AZ Beemers for many years, mention you know Don Stanley ese!

    Dave & Sylvia "FastJoyRide" from Canuckistan are piloting my FJR, Miss Donna/Papa Chuy are on the K16GT, still openings at Sonoran Sky Resort if you have a passport!
