Is your group riding this weekend?

I just sent you mail to introduce myself. I am interested on getting involved with an active group of riders in the Tijuana, San Diego area. I am myself heading South for a 6 to 9 day trip this weekend (5/20/17). If possible I would like to take this opportunity to meet some of you along the way. If you guys don't have anything planned in the short term please keep me in the loop so I can get to know you on a future ride.

Technically, you should have a passport (book or card). SENTRY is great, but that's a lot of work.

Truly, all you need if you are a USC is an oral declaration of citizenship. Accompanied by a solid photo ID is even better (state DL).

Anything less and it'll take time on primary or secondary inspection.

Don't show up with a faded and torn baptismal certificate...that'll also guarantee you some quality time with CBP in secondary inspection.

I just hosted a Kiwi who flew into LA, bought a bike and rode solo through Baja. He loved it. No problems at all, except some minor language issues.

You'll still need to get the applicable tourist visa & insurance (but no TVIP).

Have fun!
