Post #1

I find that it is a good idea to go back to post #1 every once in awhile to refocus the lens before squeezing the trigger (or shutter, or submit button) It all started with Arte's mission statement there. Sometimes this place looks like an unruly chat room but there is always someone willing to pull it back in. I agree with both Schizz and Turkeycreek... safety and security, physical and economic are irrevocably linked. We can't fix it here, we can discuss it elsewhere, but it is the 500 pound gorilla that looms over the entire discussion. Let's face it, while the discussions of Salma and the weather girls are enjoyable and amusing what do they really have to do with "Is Mexico Safe"? The other subject has a lot to do with it.
Thankfully we don't see the female aficionadas of this thread posting up a lot of beefcake! Back in the last Century when I was an 18 year old kid venturing into TJ for the first time Mexico was not safe for a whole host of different reasons... simpler times, different problems. Donkeys and baskets and tequila oh my!

I carry a gerber 3" lockback in a funda on my belt most of the time, on the bike or not. I have an old style folding electricians knife - locking screw driver blade - in the tank bag. A veces, a machete strapped to the tail bag for cutting wood while camping. Many locals carry machetes in their trucks to do their daily work in the fields or ranches. One of the fe gringos in town also carries a machete and a night stick. The cops laugh at him.

Night stick

Is the machete for cutting the night stick in half before someone seriously damages him with it?

This thread has always been the equivalent of a good old time Sofia Vergara wardrobe malfuntion!

http://egotastic.com/2012/09/sofia-v...t-emmy-awards/

Esa chica Hayek has some competition.

I just noticed the word "crackalicious" in the link I posted. Too bad words like that are not used in mundane things like presidential debates.

Just a quick thread hijack.

Just wondering if any of you folks will be at the Harvest Classic in a couple weeks.

My old man will be riding the Triumph up here and then we will be riding up together Friday.

Hope to see some of you there.


Hijack over!

I will be there on Saturday.

I'll be in Los Angeles on that Friday (19th) but get back to San Antonio mid-day.

Will be riding my Triumph (Rocket III) there as well.

The question "Is Mexico Safe" is more than just to title of an esoteric forum thread to me. We live here and both our hotel and our MC tour business depend on people's perceptions of the safety of the area. So it's not a discussion point for me, it is my life and my livelihood. And that's all I have to say about that.

I think that you are absolutely correct!

BUT, most of the folks here have made their decisions one way or the other and don't take kindly to someone stirring the pot. Unless, of course it is them doing the stirring. After a person spends a bit of time here and realizes that it mostly stop being about the Title a long time ago, then they can make their decision if they want to hang around or not.

Oh! BTW, these clowns are slobbering over something or someone they can never have while they could be really enjoying ALL that Mexico has to offer! But, it is sort of like a dog chasing a car. Why? He don't know how to drive!

And of course you have the real dumba$$es like me that know one of the things that you should not do in Mexico is hang around the border and yet I may be a semi-permanent border resident within the next 12 months!
