• Banámichi, Sonora, Mexico

    This past November, a friend on mine wanted to ride down into Mexico. The timing was good, as there was a motorcycle meetup happening at Hotel Los Arcos, in Banámichi, Sonora. Banámichi is on the Ruta Rio Sonora, a real pretty road that runs from Cananea, Sonora down to Ures, Sonora. So we went. My bud, Woody, was on one of the newer Polaris Indians, I on the GS I got from OBX.
    We spent an uneventful night at the Motel 6 in Nogales, AZ, then crossed the border and took Hiway 15 south. First to K21 where we got our mexican paperwork sorted, then down to Imures, where we picked up Hiway 2 east bound to Cananea. Then south onto the Ruta Rio Sonora to Banámichi.


    Cananea is a mining town, and this is one of the smelter buckets.


    Hotel parking.




    Hotel inside dinning room. Used mostly for desyuno, breakfast.

    Our first meal at the hotel was carne asada tacos. These were made with Sonoran beef. If you ever get to Mexico,
    you gotta try sonoran beef. Sooooooooooooo much better than the commercial beef we get here in the US.

    Just realize that there is a point where the chain has stretched enough that no amount of tightening will keep it serviceable. When it gets to that point, you can tighten it to spec before heading...

    When we say chain "stretch," we really infer chain wear.

    Since each link shares such a small amount of wear, the wear is measured over a series of links. A worn chain will be longer than when it...
