Today’s ride is one of the longer ones, but the roads are twisty, and the scenery is breathtaking as we wind our way up to the upper Sierras.
We get to know our group a little better over breakfast this morning, then take off for the first step of the trip: crossing the border into Mexico. Luckily for us, Juan and Alfonso are old hands at this process, and after waiting through a couple different lines, we’re all set.
Today, we arrive in Douglas, Arizona to kick off our adventure through Mexico with our friends at MotoDiscovery.

When a new adventure motorcycle hits the market, Touratech wastes no time getting the bike out for an extended ride to learn about the bike. So when BMW unveiled their new F800GS Adventure, an expedition-ready variation of their popular F800GS, we took a pair of the new machines out for a 10-day tour of Greece.
