    From MotoDiscovery Owner/Operator Skip Mascorro: Tour Character

    This is an adventure ride that will be a mix of paved touring and off road explorations. Off road riding will be moderately challenging for the experienced, spirited and physically abled riding enthusiast. Some days will provide options to take the pavement or experience off road sections. As with any MotoDiscovery Expedition, teamwork and flexibility are essential.

    So you want to see the REAL Mexico.
    This ride is inspired by long time supporter, Don Stanley who has shared many roads with MotoDiscovery dating back to our dates as Pancho Villa Moto-Tours. His love of Mexico, passion for challenge and laid back attitude has always made for great contribution to the success and enjoyment of any tour.

    Don collaborated with MotoDiscovery to create a ride through what could arguably be considered one of Mexico?s most beautiful, yet overlooked regions, the Huasteca. This east central region is filled with geographical diversity, a richness in history and native culture, and an opportunity to enjoy great riding both on and off the pavement. This area is highlighted by the most northern cloud forests in the hemisphere, the El Cielo Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO sight that covers about 560 square miles reaching a peak altitude of 7,500 ft. above sea level.

    One stop where we'll be for two nights is the legendary Real de Catorce, a hidden away Colonial era mining town in the high altiplano, accessed only after riding through a one kilometer long tunnel after climbing up a 14 mile long hand laid cobble stone road. On exiting the tunnel it is like you have experienced passage into a time zone, set you clocks back two hundred years. Real de Catorce will invite exploration both on two wheels and walking the old streets of this revitalized once ghost town.

    In the usual MotoDiscovery style this event will be supported by our great staff team, a 4X4 vehicle and driver will be employed to bring up the rear, and depending on the group size one to two riding staff will lead the way. Great food, the best available accommodations and the benefit of over 33 years of experience in Old Mexico guarantees this to be a great riding event.

    Sign up soon. This one will fill fast. Don't miss out on this pioneering event into the heart of Old Mexico. Vamanos muchachos!

    Brother Spinto, please consider yourself cordially invited to join us on this ride!

    If you currently don't have/own a dirt bike, MD rents Suzuki DR650's reasonably!

    Here is our Italian Friend Paolo riding one of Skip's rental DR's, in great shape and low mileage. Interesting story on Paolo, back home in Milan the largest moto he had ever operated was his Vespa 300 but he did an incredible job of riding the rough Copper Canyon Trails!
