In Hot Water, Aguascalientes, Mex

Heading east from Aguascalientes just before entering Betulia, Jalisco. I had this brilliant idea to ride standing-up and cool off with the nice
breeze pressing through my mesh jacket. I felt this little pain in the shoulder, I guess this bee bounced off the bottom of my helmet
just missing the windscreen and found his way into my shirt. So I pull over into some guys front driveway, to get that thing out of my
shirt. My leatherman needlenose pliers pulled the stinger out pretty good, thanks Guero. I could swear it felt like he pulled a quarter of an inch of
skin with the stinger when he snatched it out. Put some Vicks Vapo Rub on it and good to go. Well we headed out to the Rancho to eat,
drink, and relax. A really nice ranch, a place to just kick back.



One stop shopping at Abarrotes Karen...if they don't got it, you don't need it.




Heading to the Rancho.






At the ranch, very peacful.






OK who wants a ribeye and a Modelo?






Can you almost taste this great Tostada?




Weedy cooking, always.





Making some great tacos y tostadas.





Small Iglesia just outside the Ranch at the end of the day.



Sunset at the Church, nice end to a great day.





Mr "Peligroso" on the GS, headed back to the city, see the crosses lit up on the church in the background? Oh, I almost got trampled by a few
cows in the trail that got blinded by the headlights on the way back to the town.





Church in Betulia.




The moon shining on the church, Betulia.




More later.

The next day I got up kind of early (yeah right) and took the road west of the city towards Calvillo. It was cloudy and overcasty, not the best day
for pictures but what the heck, I am out riding, it can't be all that bad?. Not the best weather for a mesh jacket either, pretty cool morning.
I should have worn the "Dead Cow" jacket, it would have kept me warmer. I thought it would warm up a bit but the city of AGS is up in
altitude a little.




These are the Boca del Coyote mtns in the background looking south, "coyotes mouth" one peak looks like a coyote howling straight up
in the air.







Heading to Colomos just outside Calvillo, Ags.




Watch out for Vacas, that is the Sierra Fria mnt range in the distance.







I rode north toward La Labor I met these two men Jose and Jose, ranchers. Very nice and colorful charachters who gave much
needed direction. I ask about the road to Sierra Fria cold mtns, they said I missed the road already. They asked me if I was from
the "north" I said I was from Aguascalientes, they knew better and laughed.



They were talking under a tree watching the workers rebuild an old church.







Just north of La Labor, heading to the Sierra Fria.





You can still see the Boca de Coyote mtns in the distance. Still cold.




This nice man was gathering some grass for his animals, on his burro.








I'll Post more when I get a chance. -SGT

After Temazcal the dirt started





Nice small church at the edge of the town.









I was waiting for it to warm up a little, more altitude more cool, the view gets better, Coyote mtns still way back there. I can see the towns I just
rode through in the distance. You can see some blue sky too.

The view to the north east, I will ride the mesa montoro in the distance in a couple days.







Some cliffs in the Sierra Fria mtn range, just on the Zacatecas border






Pretty good view to the east


nice shot



Back to see my amigos at the church rebuilding project, I told them I would see them next year on my ride through town, but
I think they were suprised to see me again so soon.




They did seem to move under a different shade tree by the time I made it back. Workers way up top on the right with non osha approved scaffold harnesses.
We don't need no stinking.........................


The kids were just getting out of a small school walking by asking me if I was the "Policia"? ... I used Gustavo's line,
they shrugged, but men laughed their butts off though.




The cool dudes at the Gasolineria, I told them they would be "Instant Internet Celebrities all over the Mundo", they just smiled.


More pics real soon.............not done yet...........

This guy happened by when I was talking to Jose and Jose, hecho trato?, wanna trade? I told him my legs were too long, but I liked
the gas mileage of it.




A little Titi 100cc, Centro Ags.



Rincon de Romos, nice small town to the north, see the sign "No Bicycles"?



Stopping for some tacos, Hector notice a Gringo with limited espanish (me) and wanted to practice his english, he is a
teacher and travels all over the world, no need to practice on english, he is good to go.


Stay tuned, more real soon.

Then it was off to the Sombrero store, this dude had a great assortment, so I snagged one *Huge* for a cowboy buddy of mine
in FL that does survey, he laughed his fanny off when he saw the size of it and said "can't wait to wear it to work".

Hey Capo, it's about 1950 miles on the route I took to Ags, three days on the road to get there (put my cycle in the, gasp, truck).

After a nice sight seeing day in Rincon de Ramos, on the next day I took a ride to El Ocote, a small town west of Ags. This pic is looking north.



A shot to the west overlooking the town of Los Canos. A small vw blew by me as I was coming into some tight curves, I am
glad I slowed down to let him pass, I saw a lot of little rocks in the curve after he went by ughhh.



I think this is an old hacienda in this field, what a pretty place it must have been back in the day


Looking to the east approching El Ocote


Erasto taking a cool morning ride on his "adventure model"


Stay Tuned,,,,,,,,,,,

Ciudad de los Ninos, a little orphanage that took a few whole families in to do work and cook at the facility, after the
Revolution (when they had no where to turn to), on the way to Los Canos, now there is an elderly facility on the same grounds.


I stopped to get some shots of the nice cliffs and scenery, very nice windy roads too


A neato entrance to a ranch


Querno Quebrado ranch; I liked the color of the sky in this one, right after this shot I saw some dudes in a truck and had some KTM's loaded
on the trailer going riding somewhere, they honked the horn when the eased by


Horses in the grass, I know saw some burros way to the right in this picture, guess I missed 'em


If you look hard you can see the pueblo in the distance, it is a dirt road to Calvillo, the super highway of dirt roads


........Not done yet................
