Riding to Copper Canyon

Another visitor testimonial:

One of the most awesome things about getting old is the more time you have to do things. We are not strangers to Adventure Holidays on our Motorcycles having ridden the Baja and most every Road in the Western US and Canada.

Given our history our decisions to take another trip on our bikes usually starts with a simple statement “Let’s Go Too Copper Canyon”

As Canadians we simply do not possess the Fear or prejudices our American friends in the Southern US have pertaining to Mexico. We have been advised many times to not ride in Mexico, the cartels, drug lords, murders etc. is enough to scare off most Americans however we have to tell you we have only had positive experiences during all of our Mexican Adventures. San Diego to Los Cabos, Rocky Point numerous times, San Carlos and now 1100 km to Los Mochis arriving at Camp David and not once have we experience anything other than warm, welcoming, hospitable wonderful Mexican people.

In planning our Canyon adventure the security of our motorcycles is of course a concern so finding a suitable place to store them while touring the Copper Canyon on a Train was a high priority. Listen it’s still Mexico and like any strange country (City) you just wouldn’t leave your bike unattended for days. There are places in Canada, Calgary that I wouldn’t leave my bike overnight so the same precautions must be taken when travelling in Mexico.

Copper Canyon has been in our discussions for a few years and we decided to just do it. We departed Phoenix at 8am, we now numbered six for this Mexican Adventure.

After some extensive Goggling we made arrangements with David Warner who resides in Ville Del Ahome about 15 minutes outside Los Mochis. Our decision was driven primarily through the need for safe Motorcycle Storage however at the conclusion of our Tour it became evident that Camp n David offered much more. David’s secured compound not only offered us security but was a beautiful 2.5 acre resort, extremely clean; great food and made all the arrangements for our actual Copper Canyon Experience.


David is well connected with some great people and facilities, something you appreciate once you experience this for yourself. Basically we simply showed up at David’s and everything else was arranged for us. Delivering us to the Train and being greeted at our predetermined destinations everything worked perfectly. All of our hosts were awesome, the food was terrific, rooms were better than expected and in one case I would have to say spectacular.

We want to thank David and his associates for delivering an Excellent Adventure in Copper Canyon.
