Just clicked on Antware's link in the SE wretched excess thread and read this from start to finish. Awesome rr. I can relate. But, man, you can articulate. I hope I never find what I'm looking for- otherwise, I fear the journey might end.

Almost hate to bring this back from the dead - espacially being a noob to the forum - but I had to say Hoe Lee Chit. Amazing RR. Neduro your thoughts tell me I'm not the only one out there and maybe I've found a group of people that I can understand and will understand me. Thank You for the time and effort put in to this report, and I'm hoping thank you all for not running me out of the forum for bringing this back.

These are indeed the days.

Been wandering back, a little randomly, and read this one again.

I'm an hour late on the rest of the days chores, but my time's not all that valuable, is it?

Earned a bump. Go back and read this thread from the beginning.

Thanks again, Ned.

Just as good the second (or third) time around. Superb writing.

Ned, as an earlier poster said

You're a poet, not verbose or too many details just the essence of the ride. Most enjoyable thank you.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again;

I'm only half way through (page 7) and I can honestly say I think everything you mention or state is bang on. Well, almost. As much as I would enjoy a SE, I think for certain trips there are better bikes. I'd say a DR650, you'd say underpowered and poorly sprung. At least one of those can be changed to some degree. Its funny because on my trip I not only did many of the roads you did, but I had all the same thoughts! It's actually quite trippy.

I had a whirlwind tour of the department and the folks in the picture look familier, although I could be way off base
Nope. That's Guanajuato. Wicked little city. I sadly only got to enjoy it for two days, but had a great time walking around, eating delicious food and taking in the sites an sounds. One day I sat for almost two hours at a cafe sipping on espresso and limeade just people watching and spectating. It was actually very enjoyable. Food costs are very reasonable there too for such a fantastic town.
