So far so good, obviously not as sportie with house and contents and Gin on board.

Next few days we will take some shortcuts and see how she goes, only had her on shingle and lite sand at the mo but to be honest we will be going around the sandpits as they are no fun on a big bike loaded for RTWing.

....unladen different story can shift that hill in front of you to behind you with a quick flick of the throttle and cut a trench in style .... better contact Mr.Heidenau for our next set of rubbers ... sooner than later

Guerreo Negro Whales

A tourists day.

What a day, being close to the timeline somehow we got mixed up and we set or alarm for 7.00 am for the 8.00 am start of the tour.

Somehow we managed to stuff things up and set our alarm right but did not check the time on the phone thus we got up at 8 for our 8 O’clock tour.... FAIL!!

Anyway, the hotel we were staying at also ran the tour and they too were slightly late so we gobbed some breaky down and took off.

Mum nature delivered us a perfect day (other than bloody cold) for whale watching, on arriving at the lagoon a quick recovery of the delivery ute was in order as this was used to ferry people out to the boat and back.









That done we set off out to watch these beauties gracefully glide through the water with the occasional playful tail splash and heads bobbing out of the water.

The ship













We spent a total of about 3 hours out on the water which was so cool.

You would think it was cold or something



Part way back is the slat mine, an added bonus with some kickarse big machinery

This truck carries 360 T of salt in one load, I tried looking it up in the KTM accessories catalogue but couldn't find it.





Dumping a load of salt 120T in 5 seconds!!!



Conveyors



Sieves





D9R ..... I want one



The Salt heap



Spot the D9R bully on the top




On returning back to Guerrero Negro we were running late, I was still feeling like crap so we decided to stay another night here and set off in the morning instead.

This also gave us the chance to write up today then we are all but square, Wifi will get harder south so we have to make the most of it when we have it.

Don't forget to find the hot dog guy in Santa Rosalia - in the square by the metal church from France.

Just been checking on some figures.... The SE is good for 98hp... or about the same as the two DR's combined! I can understand why it can make molehills out of mountains!

lol! Wonder what the lifespan of the equipment is in that environment? As long as it remains dry, probably not too bad, but if it gets wet, watch a pile of rust develop before your very eyes!

Everything here is either new or fooked!.....they don't tan here they rust.

Not a very wet place here but enough to invoke the tin worn.

Guerrero Negro To Santa Rosalia

Not an early start as we only had 266 km to cover, well we needed the time as it turned out.

We left Guerrero Negro in stunning weather other than bloody cold again but we rugged up and enjoyed it.

Not even 50 km down the road mum nature got angry with wind and wind gusts that saw us drop to 30 - 40 km/hr at stages and riding far enough over I thought we were gonna get a knee down.

We rode through sandstorm after sandstorm with the road coming alive with swirling sand in an instant then being blown off just as quick, pics never do it justice..





Every truck that came past was new mission in learning to stay upright ... kinda fun for a while however with me still sporting my bad flu this soon wore off to a chore.

It really took it out of me reverse counter steering for upwards of 200km and little reprieve, as luck would have it I was thinking I need a break and we came upon a Military checkpoint, still blowing and cold we got off the bike very carefully as I could see Maya going to ground.

After the cars and truck had cleared it was our turn to explain WTF we were doing out in this weather .... but they just waved us on with the gun and big smile so we carried on with a big smile.

The rest of the trip was uneventful other than big winds, on arrival we looked for a Hotel, couldn’t find one at a reasonable price so we got some lunch instead to get a level head and I was stuffed and needed some hot input for energy.

After that we found a half reasonable place out of the town centre with off street parking as a lady said don’t leave you bike in town!!

A walk back into the town to buy supplies and take a look at the church that was designed by the dude who designed the Eiffel Tower.









Not a hugely impressive lace but kinda cool with its historical background.

On the way back from town we spotted this..



This was the view across the sea of cortez from where we stayed



This was someone moving house Mexican style.



Again, Tacos for Tea, Gin for desserts and early to bed after typing this up, 8.17pm ... I am knackered ..... anyone wonna swap a hangover for the flu???

The Bakery has a reputation of sorts there. Good luck with the coffee
