nice ride, great pictures and really interesting story, I love the sound those 1 3/4" drags make, I got out of harleys when they went to the belt drive, everybody is always worried about getting rocks in their belts, how come you don't?

Further classification

Further classification from my friend, Warren:

Stage 1 -- Weep, when all you can see are the oil stains forming at case seams, because the gaskets have crapped out
Stage 2 -- Seep, still nothing to worry about, maybe a drop or two, if you don't wipe 'em up with your sleeve
Stage 3 -- Drip, small pools of oil collecting under the tranny after a hard ride, but what the hell, oil is cheap in Texas
Stage 4 -- Marks his spot, like a dog lifting his leg, maybe 8" diameter, but don't lose sleep over it
Stage 5 -- Leak, oil pools extend beyond the rim of a Mexican sombrero, but not to worry, just replace one of your saddlebag 6-packs of Texas Pride with 2 quarts of oil, fix next year or year after that

Dude, I am a bit old school. The method involves scanning a waterproof paper map into a jpeg and then using Photoshop's Pencil tool with multiple layers to manually draw in my route. Sorry if I disappoint. PS CS3 (plus my scanner) is the only software I used.

It's a Rough Guide map of Mexico, good for the big overall picture, I use Guia Roji and verbal questions for the actually navigating when on the road.

Cool Report! I did Mexico solo on my KLR back in 97 & was advized by Mexican friends against riding solo as it was too dangerous but I had no problems & obviously you didn't either. Motel/Hotel prices sure have gone up. I remember the most I paid for a night was $25. Again, nice write up.

Nice!
Always wanted to do Mexico, never have made it.

But for future refference:
It's when your Harley quits leaking oil, that you have to worry. (LOL)

Sorry man, couldn't resist throwing that in!
