It was a Jim Carrey movie. Probably one of his funniest. It was his character's catch phrase.

It's Jim Carrey, dammit!

I have saved luggage space by consolidating my little Chinese stripped down tire pump and can git an extra Euro speedo in the tankbag for the Yucatan adventure.

SR, beat me to the punch. If the kid was at fault for drunk driving he should be punished to the full extent of the law. I've seen dozens of local juniors and fresas here who've gotten away with murder amongst other crimes. They simply are out of jail and free to repeat their crime. I highly doubt the kid learned anything like responsibility or remorse for his actions, the message he likely got was how dumb the gringo was to spring him from jail and save his family a pot full of pesos in legal fees so he can get a new expensive car and hit someone else while drinking and driving. How good would the gringo feel basking in his glory of being so understanding, kind, and compassionate, if the kid kills someone or hurts someone else while he should be doing time? Yeah, I know, speculation, like "if the queen had balls, she'd be king".
But, "Let no good deed go unpunished?"
Wow! I feel better! I quit smoking 4 years ago today and was having a real bad day up to now.

Duly edited.

I have a black garbage bag and some brown string here for you so you can upgrade your luggage.

You should have bought the Touratech pump. Obviously it's the best!

I live here now. Wife dragged me down here after our 10 year adventure in the US.

I like it a lot. I have a penchant for topes and AK-47 fire. (JK)

I sold the truck, so watch out!

Craneguy, you have got to add the cat as air pump line to that air pump powwow! Classic.
Shake out the cushions from the sofa and come over and get the new tires.Or hold off and wait and see what the Mystery Rider and some other visitors have planned. I tell you, with that new beige leisure suit of yours, all you need is to dye your hair jet black, get a little pencil moustache, swagger like you mean it and in a style that looks like you were born to do it, and they'll be thinking you're a Federale.

Yes, Bato, "Enrique the red rocket" truck is now happily at work on job sites and belongs to a friend of mine.

I think that Federale needs a kick in the balls.

And the very best we called it 'Maui Wowi' , if you could find it.
But there was plenty of Oaxacan. Harsh, burns the throat, but good and half the price.

This is Mx 175 south of Oaxaca, on the way to Puerto Escondido, in February of this year. I found the missing clips.

The GoPro (first version) was mounted on the windscreen of the GSA. I recommend a helmet mount, but that will mean additional editing.

Mx 175 isn't in the greatest condition, but it is good in most stretches. I have video of the aftermath of Bob C's crash I'll put up later.

The "fisheye" effect of the GoPro means that even tucked in tight, the final product makes it look like you're not as close to the rider ahead as you really are. For most of these shots, I was right on Bob C's tail - but it doesn't appear that close in any of the shots. Schizzman and Jimmex can attest I was riding way over my limits trying to keep up to Bob and each of them. Shots of those guys coming up.

Note: I really like the CD the soundtrack came from. I picked it up in Peru last year.
