My friends and I are planning a trip to the West Coast starting the first week of May. The plan is to maybe take in Mexico too, but since none of us has ever been there, we don't know where the best place to visit. We are flexable about where we will enter Mexico as we will be following the Southern route from East coast, so we could drop below the border at just about any point. Also, how safe is it? I've got to say, after hearing a lot of horror stories which might be true or not, I'm a little nervous about leaving my bike in a hotel parking lot or such. We plan on spending at least one night there, but are flexable about that too. I'm sure many of you have made this ride and maybe live south of the border, and I would appreciate any input you could give us.
