Since buying his BMW R1150 R, Jerry and I have been riding around Mexico a couple of times with Terry Vidal and his awesome Ride The Sierra touring company and friends. This page serves to collect some ideas for future rides with Jerry in Mexico.
Devil's Backbone Mascota to Puerto Vallarta
6.5 hrs, 148 km, lots of curves.
Espinazo del Diablo, a treacherous mountain road in Mexico
El Espinazo del Diablo is a natural viewpoint, flanked by two deep ravines, located at kilometer 168 of the Mexican Federal Highway 40. It covers a stretch of highway about 10 km, where you can see the wonderful spectacle of the Sierra Madre Occidental topping out at 9,000ft. This section of the highway is narrow with lots of curves. Despite of many cautionary tales, El Espinazo del Diablo is exceptionally well maintained. The road ascends and descends across spectacular landscapes, sharp bends and bottomless cliffs.
Mazacotla, Amaxocotlán, ( place of deer and snakes ) is a Pueblos Magicos.
