Actually, for a while there last weekend Schizzman almost had me convinced that buying a GS 1200 would be a good idea. One night I even found myself driving past a motorcycle dealership that was not on the way home! But all this talk of broken fuel injection components has me straightened out now!

Discussion TBC at Moto GP.
I KNEW I should have taken the lead more.

Just get a 2010 GS and forget about all this whining. Then we'll try the E. de D. again.

That should complete your reprogramming.

My colleagues at work seem to think I have a mistress down there. Well, I guess I do. She is México.

Leaving at 6am or so for Cordoba and meet up with Lance and his buds, and maybe wake up Bato and Andy on our way through Huatusco. Early morning, darkness and then seeing the sun rise in the rear view mirrors is always a well of inspiration from which one should drink deeply.
Hey, Mike!

I was the guy that got lost from Lance and Steve and hung at the motox hotel with y'all. Thanks for a fun ride. Mexico was a blast!! (and safe, duh!). Beautiful country, great roads! we made it all the way down to Guatemala and then to the Pacific Coast. That place was so beautiful, one of the group is still there

I am back in SoCal. Dreaming of another trip south!

Sad day today

My last full day in Mexico, crossing into Belize tomorrow. My rear K60 is shot and I have a new one waiting for me in Guatamala. Antigua calls.

I'd like to thank you guys for helping make my 2 months in Mexico enjoyable and trouble-free. In particular, those great guys I've met, or have hosted me or helped in some way - Turkeycreek, SR, MikeMike, Animo, Bato, Andy, Jimmex, Ken and Carol Duvall. Thanks guys.

But most of all, the countless Mexicans who've laughed with me (and probably, at me - my fault for not knowing enough spanish) and for consistently being kind, helpful and honest. For me, Mexico has been perfectly safe... anyone thinking about coming down, don't think twice (but do your homework first).

I'll be checking in here once in a while to make sure everything's still safe!

Here's my 8000 miles or so around Mexico. More detailed map here;

And some pics from the ride with Animo yesterday to Parque Natural Ria Lagartos, at the tip of Yucatan.

Beware.

Mexico is a harsh mistress.
