This isn't a fancy studio production. There is no traditional, mass-media censorship. This is raw footage of actual riders- men and women with real experience- telling it like it is. One look at their faces tells you that anybody who wants to can probably ride a motorcycle in Mexico. You certainly don't have to be a soldier-of-fortune. You can be completely normal and average, and you can ride any kind of motorcycle that you like.
Like Ben, I am also an experienced Latin America Rider, and I often get questions from others who want to travel SOB (South of the Border). The questions range from the idiotic, "Should I bring cyanide in case I get kidnapped?" to the intelligent, "What kind of travel medications should I bring?" and technical, "Where can I find a mechanic for my motorcycle?" In this DVD set, Ben entertains these questions and everything else he and his experts could think of. I know it's going to save me an awful lot of time.
Ben interviewed me, several of my friends, and several people I have never met. The first thing I noticed about our respective interviews was how often we each said the same thing, only differently. Mexico is fun. Mexico is not dangerous unless you are stupid. Mexico has great dentistry. Mexico is big. Overland travel in Mexico isn't for everybody.
Before my first motorcycle trip to Mexico, I was terribly unprepared. I was frightened so badly that I turned back after only a few hundred miles.Read more ›
I would highly recommend Motorcycle Mexico to anyone wanting to be prepared before leaving home, and enjoy touring the country.
Riding to Mexico has always been a far fetched, impossible dream in the back of my mind. After watching this DVD set I am more inspired and informed than I ever thought I'd be about riding in Mexico. Experienced riders answer every conceivable question you may have about travel SOB in a well cataloged, easy to navigate series of chapters. I plan to make my dreams reality this summer, currently plotting a coastal route to Acapulco and this DVD is the reason!
If you're planning a Mexico trip or still just dreaming about it, this disc should be your first piece of kit! Thanks Ben for putting this all together. I think you should create a how too series for the entire world!
