Rocky Point Rally---Choice of Routes?
I'm considering riding from Vegas to the Rocky Point Rally at Puerto Penasco. My preference would be to take Highway-95 all the way down to Yuma and cross the border at San Luis; then take Mexico Highway 2 east to Sonoyta. That route would parallel the border for about 170miles.
Alternate route would be to go to Phoenix and take Highway-85 south and cross the border at Lukeville; then south to Sonoyta.
US State Dept. generally advises to drive the least amount of miles as possible on Mexican roads.
I will be riding solo.
If I go via San Luis/Hwy-2; I would be traveling in the morning before noon.
So, question is---should I take shorter route via San Luis/Mexicao-Hwy-2, or the longer route via Phoenix/Hwy-85? I am slightly in a "crunch" for time and I would like to vary my routes (take one way there, and then another way back to Vegas). Should I totally avoid Mexico Hwy-2?
Thanx to anyone who can give me some good advice regarding this.
