5 reasons you should add this MotoDiscovery feature destination to your bucket list

The South American continent offers a wealth of adventure riding treasures. We’ve been riding there since 1995, and by far the most popular region is the southern reaches of Chile and Argentina known as Patagonia.

Technically it is bound by the Atlantic Ocean to the East the Pacific to the West, sandwiching the Andean mountain range, a stunning system of fjords with temperate rainforests, glacial lakes, and barren windswept grasslands. It is this exact dynamic that offers you a thrilling motorcycle riding experience, unlike any other on the planet.

Here are 5 good reasons why you should add this Patagonia motorcycle tour to your bucket list:

Sidecar Copper Canyon Adventure 2023

Open to all sidecar adventure enthusiasts and their friends

With our introduction to the URAL Sidecar on the South America Ruta 40 Expedition 2022, we discovered the joy of sidecar adventuring. For 2023 we bring you a three-wheeling adventure in Old Mexico. This tour is classified as ADVENTURE, the route largely following lightly traveled paved roads, with miles of unpaved, but maintained roads in the Copper Canyon region. You can expect the URAL to be at home in this environment. There is no camping on this event. Passenger participation is strongly encouraged as this is an event one will want to share with others.

Designed with the sidecar motorcycle in mind, the pace and daily distances are moderate, permitting time to enjoy the colorful culture and to learn of the history of the state of Chihuahua and the stunning Copper Canyon complex. This tour will offer a support vehicle to carry a limited amount of personal luggage and to help facilitate any roadside emergency and mechanical assistance. The vehicle will have the capacity to transport one sidecar motorcycle to a secure location should it be required.

Like all MotoDiscovery touring events, one can expect this to be much more than a ride. Our experience in Mexico is unmatched, having operated more tours in this country than any other motorcycle touring company in the world. This event is limited to only 12 sidecar motorcycles. Early commitments are encouraged in order that we may secure preferred accommodations and services.

How difficult is this ride?

This event is specifically designed with a pace, and road conditions suited for the sidecar touring enthusiast. Roads are paved with opportunities for off road adventure explorations.

How is the weather?

MotoDiscovery travels during what we consider to be optimum riding seasons. Altitudes range from high deserts of 4,000 feet to mountains reaching 7,000 feet and lower elevations in the canyons approximately 1,200 feet. Temperatures can range from cold mornings with rapid warming through the day. Weather updates are provided in a MotoDiscovery e-mail Communique right before the tour.

Is it safe?

Know that we consider this a priority. Over 30 million travelers come to Mexico on average each year. While we consider the safety question to be overblown, we still take it seriously and recognize that there are territorial criminal elements engaged in drug related activity in many parts of Mexico. These elements rarely bother tourists as this only brings unnecessary attention to them. It is a strange coexistence. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns knowing that at any time, anywhere, we feel your security is compromised , we will be honest and respond accordingly.

Is this suitable for a passenger?

Yes. Your sidecar passenger will find this a fascinating and fun international touring experience. You will want to share it!

I don’t speak Spanish.

No worries. We have native speakers on all of our tours in Mexico. Many people in Mexico speak English. We encourage you to learn a few words and we will gladly provide some lessons along the way if you wish!

How long are the riding days?

Longest day is 260 miles. Shortest day is approximately 60 miles.

What motorcycle is best suited for this ride?

This tour presents opportunities to ride easily navigated unpaved roads. The URAL is perfectly suited for this environment; however, the route is planned for paved roads throughout. Contact MotoDiscovery if you have any questions related to this subject.

What documents are required to enter Mexico?

We will go into detail in pre-tour Communiques. A passport, motorcycle registration, drivers license and a credit card for some temporary importation and tourist card fees should suffice.

Do I need special insurance?

Yes. Your USA motorcycle insurance will not serve you once in Mexico. Quality and reasonably priced Mexico insurance is available. Information on this matter will be provided in your pre-tour information e-booklet.

How are the accommodations?

MotoDiscovery strives to provide the best possible accommodations for our riding guests. Be mindful that “expedition” style travel often has us traveling in lesser developed regions. Therefore a degree of tolerance and flexibility when it comes to quality, is expected. Overall we find lodging on this tour to be very good.

What about the food?

As is the usual MotoDiscovery policy we encourage ordering from an open menu and enjoy sharing with you a great dining experience. You won’t be disappointed. Those with special dietary requirements can count on our cooperation and satisfaction.  

Can MotoDiscovery design a private tour just for me and my friends?

The Copper Canyon Expedition is a great model for us to build you a private and customized touring experience, just for you and your friends. Contact MotoDiscovery for consultation.

Will I get more information?

Tour preparation is important. You will receive electronically a comprehensive tour booklet that will address all your questions. You are encouraged to call or send us an email at any time if you have additional questions. We welcome your inquiries.
