Motorcycle and ATV information

Overlooking Chihuahua, 1993.

Morelia Aquaduct, 1993.



I’ve  motorcycled Mexico twice. Both trips were solo rides and totaled about 16,000 miles. The first trip, in 1971, lasted over two months, and the second in, 1993, over a month.


Since 2000, I have mainly ridden four-wheelers in Mexico and written about those adventures for Sand Sports Magazine. My motorcycle trips in Mexico since 2000 have been short rides around various cities. I take note of good mechanic shops. If you’re motorcycling south, the following shops and people are reliable. If you encounter a Mexican mechanic or shop that has gone the extra mile on your trip, please let me know so I can alert other travelers.

Edgar-2 and Bill enyoing a fiesta.

I call MotoGarage, “The Shop of the Two Edgars.” It’s owned and operated by Edgar Cisneros and Edgar Diaz. The phone number, 844-181-30-92 the personal number of Edgar Cisneros, who is fluent in English having attended elementary school in Dallas, Texas.

If you’re in Saltillo and don’t need service or repairs, do yourself a favor and drop by to buy something small and talk motorcycles or ATVs. These are good guys who provide plenty of bike and travel tips. Plan to visit a few minutes, you’ll meet other bikers who speak English, as by mid-morning the shop becomes a great gathering place.






Alfredo’s  La Casa D’ Los Caballos, which serves as Catemaco’s biker hangout, owned by Jose Alfredo Avila Carrillo. If you have bike problems in Los Tuxtlas you will want to see Alfredo. He can direct you to the best mechanics for your problem.

The restaurant has recently moved to the malecon next to Hotel del Lago

Tapalpa, Jalisco, Mexico

Tapalpa is an unspoiled tourist destination off Highway 54 between Guadalajara and Colima. I call this pueblo: the four-wheel capital of the world. Grab a table off the square, order a drink and start counting. At least one in eight vehicles will be an ATV. Whether you need repairs or want your machine looked over ask for directions to Beto’s motorcycle shop. Carlos Roberto Almaguer Avila is simply “Beto” to everyone but you’ll get first-class mechanical service. If you have time hire Beto as a guide. He’ll take you on off-road rides and to sites it would be difficult to discover on your own.



Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco




TEL CELL 322-1090032


The location is near the boardwalk, and the cross street is Avenida Mexico

This ATV rental and tour shop belongs to Yesy and Omar Perez. While they don’t repair bikes, they speak English and are good, friendly people. They know, use and can recommend the best repair shops in Puerto Vallarta. Their tour is excellent if you have the time. ATVs Kukulcan no longer uses the buggies shown in photographs–only four-wheelers.
