(April 4, 2011 ride, report written May 24th)
Frequent military checkpoints dotted the northernmost part of Chihuahua, Mexico. If the sandbag barriers did not slow incoming traffic, the big guns being held by young soldiers sure would.
Our first step at the border was to export our bikes out of Mexico. Inspectors carefully photographed our bikes’ VIN and engine numbers. The inefficiency of Mexican Customs’ paperwork flow nearly made this Industrial Engineer cry. After we crossed into the USA, Larry and I were “home free” and rode to Tombstone. Gunter, Peter, Thomas, Kevin, and the rest of the outside the US gang had to go through the USA version of border torture.
