Funny! Got a monopoly on those double trailers too, I suspect.

Alllllrighty....

For those of you that want to follow some of Schizzman & Jimmex's lines through the Espinazo, here's video I shot of me doing that. You can't really see Jimmex much.... he's too far ahead.

Please, don't laugh too hard at some of the lines I took. I tend to hang way on the outside on blind corners.

I am certain that you too will revel in the sound of my ferocious angry sewing machine, the R1100GS.

^^What a blast! Just pure unadulterated exhilaration. Thanks Mark, that really brought back the experience.

Signage, rest areas, guard rails, decent pavement...what luxury! If that was on this coast, they'd qualify it as a "cuota" route!

I'm hoping it does too, about December thru March.

I had good and fearless leaders on the return leg, and it was fun!

That's a good teaser, Mike. Looking forward to riding with you down there some day.

Nice video Mark. I keep trying to tell myself that the KLR does just fine, but watching those BMW's perform makes it very hard to remain in my state of denial. I think you might have just cost me about 12K, Cabron!

Bring that new 2012 GS1200 down and you'll get the perfect hybrid between the KLR and the Harley. Plenty of power and no tope worries. There are at least a dozen good routes with interesting things to see. Plenty of ruins (apart from the well known ones like Tajin), great seafood, and lots of mixed riding with mountain, coast, dirt road, secondary roads, interconnecting routes, all the good things about Mexico. You know the feeling! :)

Igualmente, SR.

You helped reinforce my twisted desire to flaunt danger and tour mexico, Senor Wake-up-in-Durango-Wifey-makes-mole-search-for-special-rocks-while-scoping-new-riding-areas-in-the-mountains.



Anything else I can do for you?



So we're even now, right? But I do recommend the '98-99 R1100GS. They handle fairly sportily in the twisty bits, and make topes fun. Relatively inexpensive, and chances are you won't need the dealer as badly if something goes wrong (if you do your own wrenching). 4-5k, depending on condition and options.
