Got back, 3 days later took a friend from Arkansas skiing, fell and dislocated my shoulder and broke my humerus. That was Feb 28th and just now can ride around more than a few miles. Typing this with ice on the shoulder, doing awful but necessary rehab exercises. I'll be ready for a trip to Moab in 2 weeks, hope I don't fall!

Thanks much for the camera write-up. Your work is great. I also still have a shameless crush on your GS, I love that model.

Steve

KenBob - love your location At least its classier than mine

And thanks also!

You know, I just knew someone was gonna ask me that, and to be honest I didn't look. He hasn't cracked 500,000 but is probably a couple trips away. He told me he's been so busy he hasn't been able to ride much

Thanks so much for the comments on the Montana and the map.

I'd love to take that trip sometime. The riding looks fantastic as well as the small towns and people. Although your neck of the woods is no slouch.

Thanks again for sharing your images and thoughts.

Thanks IB1! - Mexico has certainly been a good riding experience. Come on over and rent a bike from Hank I'm anxious to get back as soon as I can.

Sounds like you and Hank had a great trip! Excellent photos and storytelling!

I saw the footage of his near-plunge when I was at his shop about a month ago--I didn't realize you were on that trip with him.

I look forward to having time to go on trips like this!

Definitely head south with him when you get a chance

Been good .... Jose.

Haven't been riding nearly as much as I'd like, but I'm planning to change that with a speed run to Memphis next month. Hoping I don't cook.

Hoping to run into you around the hill country one of these days!

Ditto man - we're bound to met up sometime LOL

Have fun on the ride but it does sound hot and steamy, and not in a good way!

I was in Real De Catorce in the early '70's. Aside from the present abundance of shops and hotels, not much in the actual landscape has changed. The tunnel back then wasn't paved or lined, just a barely one lane rocky ass hole through the mountain with no lights, and plenty of side tunnels. You got the impression that if your lights went out, you'd never get out of there alive, wondering into side tunnels in the dark, never to be seen again.

Cool to see the modern version, back then there were about 50 people in town, and one "store" that sold Coke. We had the only (motorized) vehicle in town, plenty of donkeys in the streets though. And pigs. And chickens. And barefoot kids.

Finally, some Federales came into town in a Jeep if I remember correctly.

Cool then, cool now. Thanks for the pics!

Speedo that would have been great to have seen it then - that would be a long*ss tunnel in pitch black
