Annual Banámichi Motorcycle Meet-Up


Hotel Los Arcos Trip Advisor Certificate8th Annual Banámichi Motorcycle Meet-up
November 8, 9, and 10, 2024.  

Past Motorcycle Meet-Ups have been a great success with more riders and more donations of school supplies, good music and laughter each year. And food, lots of food. Really good food.



About Banamichi

Banámichi (Ba-NAH-meechi) is a quiet and safe little town in the Sonora River valley and the ride down from the border is twisty, scenic and very enjoyable for all types of motorcycles.  ADV bikes to be sure but cruisers, baggers and sidecar rigs have participated.  The routes down are suitable for all riders and Banámichi is a good kick off point for Copper Canyon and points south and also for the ferries to Baja from Topolobampo or Mazatlan. We are located between north-south routes Mex 15 and Mex 17 and east-west routes Mex 2 and 16 and 120 miles south of Bisbee, AZ.  Here is the map.


There are about 50 hotel rooms in town, Los Arcos has the 13 best with secure parking and a swimming pool. You get to choose your lodging for this event. We can help with other hotels but those reservations are your responsibility. Tent camping (limited) is available.


This is an informal gathering. There are no fees, you pay for your rooms, your food and what ever else.  Filling our hotel rooms and restaurant is great but that’s not why we do this. It’s about introducing more riders to the Rio Sonora, to Mexico and meeting people you may only know online and meet some new friends too.

Highlights of the meet-ups are the tour of the Bacanora still, where you will see how the local Sonoran mescal is made. An amazing buffet lunch at the still site is included in the tour.  Dinners are Tacos de Carne Asada and pizza made in an adobe oven.  And our talented and award winning Folkloricos amazing dance troupe will perform.  Join in the camaraderie, guitar playing and singing.

We have some fun day rides mapped out for you too.

Support Our School Kids

What we do ask of you is that you bring school supplies for the elementary school in La Mora, just a few kilometers south of Banámichi.  Pens, number 2 pencils, glue sticks, white erasers, and spiral-bound notebooks – and any and all school stuff  that will fit on your bike. The 2018 haul  is shown on the right and last year was even better- pretty impressive.  Thanks to all.

We will also be selling Banâmichi stickers.   In past years sticker sales paid for a new printer for the school and repairs to the buildings.
