Annual Moto Meetup in Banámachi, Sonora, Mexico

November 3, 4, and 5


Background Info:  Tom and Lynn Matthews, the proprietors of Hotel Los Arcos de Sonora, are the founders of this popular Moto Meetup.  Since 2016 adventure motorcyclists have made their way to this small Sonoran Agricultural community.  Banámachi, once a favorite vacation town for Linda Ronstadt and family, is only one of several friendly towns along Sonora Highway 89.  You will experience some local culture and meet up with old and new friends who enjoy two and sometime three wheel adventure motorcycling.  For new participants, this is a great time to travel south of the border since there will always be experienced riders to provide guidance along the way.  


Interested parties should think about making reservations as soon as their schedules permit.  The two major hotels do fill up fast.
