San blas, nayarit. Mexico
 
Once again our annual ride to San Blas Nayarit Mexico, crossing the Sierra Madre.
Every year the paved road is eating our so beloved dirt road. It is so sad for us, but so good for the villages along the route.

Any way, we will need to ride the alternate route next year.

In the mean time, here is a teaser pic of the destination.

Bahia Matanchen, San Blas Nayarit, México.

I remember going to San Blas as a kid to a natural water hole they have there. I just remember being taken there by a small boat through a small river. There was a rope you could swing off of and fish swimming under you. I remember it being really cool as long as you could put up with the the mosquitoes. Maybe its worth checking out if you haven't. Either way im looking forward to seeing your trip

So from here I rode 5 hours straigth, only stoping at Concha del Oro to refill gas....

get to Zacatecas, have a good rest and some beers (so weird !:huh) and get ready for next day,

here we are getting ready.

check on the background, the curiousity of our sudden visitors to check on our bikes :eek1

So from here we started riding right ahead on the Sierra Huicholes.
I was so confident on my new invention to overcome on the cold winter riding gloves, that it did hurt my pride and made me to stand still stoic for as long as some 50 miles holding on about 20 F temperature on mi hands. Shizz! I learned that need real winter gloves.

oops! they got me giving a bite to my Torta!

http://i749.photobucket.com/albums/x...2/DSC02783.jpg


Ham Torta with Jalapeño and Green Tea. Soooo healthfull for a biker!! :lol3

http://i749.photobucket.com/albums/x...2/DSC02784.jpg


everyone was having its own choice breakfast. It was part of the rules, everyone should bring along the first two meals of the day in order to save as much time as possible, since we were 12 riders.

http://i749.photobucket.com/albums/x...2/DSC02785.jpg


For me was so simple. Two ham Tortas would do. What the heck! I'm a adventure biker! I eat bugs, dirt and drink ponds water!!! my stomach is iron made :lol3:lol3

San Blas is a great little hide A way... I love it there.....

Arte: I wish I could see your pic's they're always good, the spam filter, sonic blocker here wont allow it....

and one little correction for you, there are no alligators in San Blas... they are crocodiles.... BIG nursery up that little river for repopulating all the rivers in Mexico that had been fished out.... it is pretty neat to see....
