2024 Banamichi Moto Meet-Up – Hotel Los Arcos

November 8th to 10th

We are again joining another club in the annual ride to Mexico. SEAT contacts are Dave Dobson and Mark Goodrich Let Dave know if you are going. 

This year’s event will be held on the weekend of November 8, 9, 10.  Take advantage of the Monday US holiday and stay an extra day.

Banámichi is a quiet and safe little town in the Sonora River valley.  The ride down from the border is twisty, scenic and very enjoyable for all bikes and all riders.

We will have all the great events of past years -  Carne asada, adobe oven pizza, folkloric dancers and a visit to the Bacanora still with an all you can eat buffet. (Bacanora is the exquisitely smokey locally distilled mescal.)   This year, beer, wine and margaritas will be available during the event. As always we will make music; play guitars, (we have a few here) enjoy the town, meet old friends and make new ones.  And our local priest will bless the bikes

Supporting the local elementary school is also important.  Riders are asked to bring down pens, pencils, notebooks and other school supplies that fit in your panniers and saddlebags.  We plan to ride to the school Monday morning and deliver supplies.

Los Arcos is headquarters for the event and we have 13 rooms available.  There are other hotels nearby with plenty of rooms.  We will have tent sites available with restrooms and showers.  We are also working on other lodging options; more info will be coming.   There is no registration fee, just pay for your hotel, meals and incidentals.

We have routes available for day rides and after the meet-up.  Banámichi is the perfect place to kick off a ride to the beach, Copper Canyon and many other great Mexican destinations.

Watch for more updates and make plans to join us.

Contact me via email or the phone numbers below to let us know you will attend and reserve at Los Arcos, other hotels or for a tent site.  And please share this with your fellow riders.

Ándale, Ándale! Arriba Aribba!
