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 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.
