LR, your thoughts and perspective is always appreciated here.
FWIW, I rode hard thru Copper Canyon area a month ago, lived "large".....$300 for 7 days of riding covered all gas $, food, beer, tequila and motel lodging. I/we were amazed. I have a hard time making that last a weekend in the US.
I am getting tired of focusing on the supply side of money, time to look at the demand side.
