They knew we were riding through Sinaloa and were quite chill.

I was part of two single encounters and the large group.

I was ahead of SR (unusual - he's 10 times faster than me) when I came upon the large group and their trucks at a river crossing. SR pulls up and we chatted with two guys.

They offered us a beer from one of their pickups.

My impression: very businesslike yet, and I'm searching for a word here, polite.

Overall: "Bienvenido. Now please move along"

More in the RR

It could have been worse for my knee. Part of the impact was distributed to my ring and pinkie finger because I had carefully positioned them between the pavement and the bone crushing bare metal hand guard.

As I lie there in the road on my back in the drizzle, a little old lady came out and asked if I had wrecked. I said " No, ma'am. It was just such a pretty spot I thought I'd just rest there a while." ;)

Sharp rock? Probably not good.
How about an almost three thousand meter canyon descent. Steep and rocky. We will put photos and video in the RR

SR coasted for 30 minutes with the engine shut off. (Not me, I fell back on engine braking) SR is a pro. In fact, for fun, he shut down on most descents. He would pick a line and made it Motorcycle Parkour.

I am going to post screen shots of our GPS track in Google Earth.

You will see the canyon in 3D. Hardest thing I've done on a moto. Downhill switchbacks, seemingly endless, on rocky terrain. Glad to have more than pads.

Yep. Uh-huh. Right. Sounds nice.


I might have stood a better chance with the 20 Narcos with AK's.
