Way to get out and ride JIMMEX Craneguy, Mike, and Arte! This time of year is the best for riding.
Here are a few from this weekend. We did about 310 Km of off road
from El Salto, Durango to Acaponeta, Nayarit into some extremely rugged, isolated and beautiful areas (Google Earth Lajas Durango). It took 13 hours with one flat tire to get across. Then we rode up the coast about 70 km on the highway to Rosario, Sinaloa and then went back across the Sierra off road to El Salto (150 km off road). I'd be lying if I said my arms aren't a little sore this morning. It was a great adventure!

Pueblo Nuevo, Durango
From here it's about 200 km across these hills to get to the coast.
These guys are always up there. I think they are ferral. They seem to be happy, plenty of tall grass.

Day 2 on the way back up, by Calaveras Durango.
Dinner in the Sierra. She is getting the pan nice and hot to fry up the pork lard and the beans. Good old fashion Mexican country cooking!
To stay on subject, it was safe, just very isolated. There were stretches where we didn't see another vehicle for 3 of 4 hours. But we went in prepared. You can see the size of the backpacks. We were carrying a lot of gear. The KTMs have small gas tanks so Miguel and Hector had to carry gas too.
