I was taking water pills today. Stopped 4 times for gas/check directions/piss in 10 hours. I am a shadow of my former self. I used to only stop twice. I am a broken machine! ;)

Austin & Pix

Thanks JD, I would like to get to Austin sometime and hear some music, have bumped in to a lot of folks there and we have a music festival in July that is all Texas musicians. Thanks for the tip on smug mug posting. I did what I have always done and it didn't work, have they changed something? Will check out the how to post a pic thread. Always something new with techno. Hard to eat baclava with that burka, uh balaclava, on your face.

Sheeeite. That didn't work either. I gotta get on the road. Will try more later.

Thanks

If you learn how the string should look you can fix things.

Very sweet bike M'ito.

A good decreasing radius corner on a mountain road with no guardrails is something that sticks in your mind with a clarity only matched by the pic of Schizz and his dessert offering.

This is working now just the way it has since December without modifying the string. Some temporary aberration I guess. Thanks for jumping in guys. Help is always valued and sometimes appreciated

It's called "Catemagico"!
Odd things happen when you are living on Tuxtlas time. Rod Serling couldn't have said it better.

Catemaco to Palenque

Great ride. No fotos. Was booking it. Hwy. 180 has some great twisty bits but with a fearsomely uneven surface in places. There was a a pizza delivery guy on some kind of Chinese 125 down in one of the potholes. The only thing that kept him from falling all the way back to China was that box on the back of the scoot. I slowed down enough that he could grab my crash bar and come flying out of there... good thing because there was a doble remolque loaded with more Chinese shit bearing down on us.

I again salute you iron butts who pound out 500 miles in a day. In this heat and humidity 300 miles was plenty for this old boy.

Don't wear shorts and sandals when you go out for dinner at night here. My legs have been devoured my no see'ems while I was writing this...

I am in Panama City and have a few questions???

How do you find the location where you can watch the ships pass through the canal? I have Panama Maps in my GPS, so an address would be great!

From where do the sail boats depart that carry the motos to Columbia? Not heading further south this trip, but will be in the future.

In following CA1 to its end at the Darien Straight, how is the availability of fuel and motels after leaving Panama?

Thanks!

Un momento de sobriedad

I guess you're never really safe on a motorcycle. I stopped for a break in Jalpan today, and met three guys on their sport bikes and full racing leathers. They took off first. I finished my break, then left Restaurante Karina's wondering how fast and how far they had gone.



Above Pinal de Amoles, I saw them with two other riders parked by the side of the road, helmets off. I gave them the *thumbs up* and they returned it, so I rode on, enjoying getting my chicken strips disappeared on the new bike. About 15 minutes later I heard the high pitched whine of their motors behind me, and waved them around. They were flying, and as much as the Oyster thinks I'm fast, these guys were tearing it up, using both lanes, and simulating a track day on one of the greatest motorcycling roads in Mexico. I soon lost sight of them, and about 5 minutes later, I came around a curve below the village of Camargo, to find two of them in the road, waving me to slow down.

I immediately saw why. One of the riders who had joined them when I passed them, apparently had a head-on with a car coming the other way. I am not sure if the error was hers or the driver of the car, but his car was a a standstill in his own lane. I think the rider was a girl, but never saw her with her helmet off. Her friends and some other by-standers were fishing her out of some brush about 15 feet below the roadbed. She had a leather jacket and full face helmet, but just jeans on her legs. I helped the other two drag her bike off the road, then we all gathered sand and dust to throw over the oil spill area. They got her into a car to drive her the 70 miles or so to a hospital in Queretaro.

It was a sobering moment, and I left after most of it was under control. I found myself riding with a heightened sense of caution and the tenuousness of being after that. Say some prayers for a fellow biker tonight inmates. I hope she will recover fully.


Her bike after we dragged it to the inside of the curve.


Her tank was over the guardrail on the outside of the curve.

Ride wrecklessly amigos.
