Annual Motorcycle Banamichi Meet Up

November 5, 6, 7 2021

The Banámachi, Sonora, Mexico Hotel Los Arcos de la Sonora and owners Tom and Lynn Matthews are once again hosting the annual motorcycle meetup. Tom and Lynn Matthews are great hosts and can help with all things in and around Banámachi....and getting to and from the area.


Dates: November 5, 6 and 7th, 2021 Occupancy: Filling up fast, so make your reservations as soon as possible.


Banámachi is located approximately 3.5 hours south of Douglas, Arizona and is a quaint agricultural town. Our past motorcycle meet ups have been great with people visiting from varied parts of the U.S., Canada, Mexico and beyond. Of course there are lots of discussions about motorcycles and where riders have traveled, The street in front of the hotel is always blocked, allowing motorcycles to park on the street undisturbed. (No local traffic).


There are other hotels in the area when Hotel Los Arcos is occupied and tent camping may be available for those who want to rough it a little. On their website you will find almost all of what you need to know about Banámachi, border crossings, routes, etc. Go to “HOME” and you’ll see Maps and Directions as a subheading. Under another heading, “Things to Do,” you’ll find “Motorcycle Meetup.” Please visit this site for rooms and other pertinent information as well.


NOTE: Border crossings into Mexico are allowed at this time, however, Naco, AZ is currently closed. Currently it is not recommended to take the route from Nogales to Magdalena de Kino to Banámachi. Further updates will be provided as we near departure time. Although there are several ways to reach Banámachi, the easiest is via Douglas/Agua Prieta. All Mexican paperwork can be secured there. Mexican insurance is required and very easy to obtain.


The day before leaving we generally stay in Bisbee and/or Douglass and leave from there. In the past, many of us meet at the Bisbee Coffee Company and leave together in a group(s) early in the morning. We can discuss later.


If you have any questions or just want to chat about it, please call Mark Goodrich on 303-475-1830 or email to Tom and Lynn will be more than happy to assist with more detailed information about their hotel and events surrounding this year’s meet up.


Hope to see you there and/or riding together for a great weekend.
