You are receiving this email because you have participated before or shown an interest in attending the Banamichi Motorcycle Meetup in November.  The 2021 Meet Up was well attended with returning riders and many new faces. We are back on track and hope to welcome even more riders this year.


This is an informal gathering.  There is no registration fee.  Pay as you go for lodging, meals and whatever.  Just show up and join in.  We ask that you let us know you are coming so we can feed everyone and find lodging.


The activities we have planned are:

  • Friday evening - All you can eat tacos de carne asada (grilled beef tacos) sides and soft drinks on.  ($12 US)

  • Saturday - A tour of a rustic mescal still making the local Sonoran version, Bacanora.  Iincluds tastings and an amazing buffet feast of local foods ($20 US).  You will be able to try your hand making tortillas and embarrass yourself.  Bottles of Bacanora will be available. 

  • Saturday evening - All you can eat adobe oven pizza, salad and soft drinks. ($12 US)

  • A performance by our local folk dance group.  These kids have consistently won the state competitions and place well nationally.  If all you did was come down to watch these kids the trip would be worth it.  This is by donation.


We have several routes mapped out for day rides and Banámichi is the perfect jumping off point for Copper Canyon, the beach the Baja Ferry or other Mexican adventures.


A very important feature of the event is our school supplies drive.  We ask that riders bring down ring binders, pens, pencils, crayons and other typical elementary school supplies.  Things that easily fit on your bike.  These items will be delivered to the school in La Mora about 3 KM south of here.  


Hotel Los Arcos is once again sponsoring the event.  Los Arcos will fill up quickly and we have several reservations already.  Do not let this dissuade you from coming.  We have two hotels within 2 blocks of Los Arcos and others a bit farther away.  And we will have tent sites available with access to restrooms and showers within 2 blocks from Los Arcos.


Please respond if you plan to come. Let us know if:

  • You would like some help getting rooms at Los Arcos or at other hotels in Banámichi

  • You plan to make your own hotel arrangements directly

  • You plan to tent.


We are working hard to make this the best Meet Up yet and we hope, set the stage for bigger and better events in the future. 


Info about the event is on the Los Arcos website

Please forward this email to friends and your riding circle.


Bring your stories, your appetite and some school supplies.


Hasta Pronto!


Tom and Lynn.
