REVIEW: Great from the beginning clips of the road, and people along the route. Highlights:
New Orleans -- great music and vid of street tap dancers. Morgan City -- interview with a local
Mexican Border Crossing -- process. Traffic stop -- how to handle "the fine". Good footage of hwys and village stops and local interactions. Interesting trivia bits along the way. Helpful folks all along for when things go wrong, and they will. And good to see there are fellow bikers out there as well. Entertaining and informative.
I truly enjoyed your movie and travels through Mexico. You did and excellent job of capturing the beauty and the culture of Mexico that we enjoy and keeps us coming back to Mexico. I enjoyed Marilyn doing the Waldo thing at the beginning. Great movie I wish my wife was here to watch it with me.
THE MOVIE: "Mexico Highways" is the 8th episode in the "Burro Has 3 Wheels" DVD series, that circumnavigate the roads of North, Central and South America, a Trans America Highway in the greatest sense.
After finishing the ride to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego on the Pan American Highway the first 4 motorcycle movies in these ADV adventure rider DVD series, (1) "Mexico", (2) "Central America", (3) "Colombia / Ecuador" & (4) "Peru, Chile, Argentina" were produced. These were followed by episodes; (5) "Alaska Prudhoe Bay Highway", (6) "Alaska to Labrador Highway" and (7) "Newfoundland to Florida Highway".
This time in episode (8) "Mexico Highways" Gary's wife Marilyn is along as they set out to trace all of the coastlines of Mexico.
From Florida through the Southeastern States of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas, it's down the gulf coast of Mexico to the Belize border. Heading west, they cross the Yucatan Peninsula and up the Pacific Coast eventually traversing the Northern border region of Mexico and Baja California.
Gary and Marilyn are riding a 2005 Ural with a sidecar. Built in Russia beginning in 1939 it's an exact copy of the famous WW II German BMW motorcycle.
The movie documents the reality of their traveling and what they experience providing viewers a preview beyond motorcycle book formats as to what it is really like to ride many of Mexico's roads. Topics include; Border Crossing, Police, Road Safety and lots of other useful information. Sights include; Chichen Itza, Tulum, San Cristobal, Copper Canyon, local people and much more. As usual, a terrific soundtrack of Blues and Latin music is accompanied with lots of laughs.
You'll want your mate(s) to watch. WARNING! After viewing, you're bound to be on your own adventure. Jump into the seat of the sidecar and take the ride.
