Milton,

You crack me up. The Swing Room. Any swingers in that hotel? I mean you were riding a Harley...

Great report, great photos!

Cheers,

Mike (in Clear Lake)

Know what? I don't care. It's brand new, super clean, and the bike is safe. A respite from the mean ole wind and sun out there on the Central Plateau. I didn't see the sign warning "No Children or Minors Allowed" until I left in the morning.

Of course I knew something was up when the Administration is behind a one-way-glass mirror. A voice comes over a speaker from nowhere, Dr No style, telling me to go to Room #57.
Just go to #57?
Si.
Ok, I putt around to the back and find the garage for #57. As I'm parking the Green Hornet two "maids" show up, at least they were wearing maid costumes, uhhhh, uniforms. Nice looking girls, friendly, they ask for the $26. Paying for your motel room away from the Administration office/one-way mirror is kinda strange, but OK. $26. Then one of them asks me if I want anything to eat. Well it's 12:30 a.m. and no thank you, I just ate, but in retrospect this may have been a chance to upgrade my room.

You gotta love it. So much for one of those classic old colonial hotels in the Guadalajara center.

************************************************** ******

So, your very first time in a No-Tell Motel. Guess you figured out pretty
quick it's just for partying. I use these places along the cuotas when I need
to sleep and run on the way to MC. Two maids came because you were an
unaccompanied male and they were presenting you with a choice. I've had
one maid check me in and when I sent her away a second showed up
almost immediately. And she was better looking. Thought she'd never give
up and let me go to bed. Little more than a subtle brothel. Hate to think
what they must have thought when I came through with my 15 year old
son!!
I continue to use them when they suit my needs. Travel needs, that is.
Nice one on the north end of SLP (57 libre). The doble recamara is a steal
of a deal for two couples on bikes. And nothing says "party" like a sunken
tub in the living room!

Good to see a Harley doing something like this. I keep thinking I'll sell my 04 sportster, but I'm thinking it will end up in Central America some day.

We have yet to cross paths. Maybe some day down there. I'll be in Xilitla
then Tlaxcala/Cholula late April. Need to be in the DF sometime after that.

To date my Mexico travels have been in cages and single-engine a/c.
Just started riding in. Looking to do a loop through S.M. Oriental followed by
Catemal later this year. Been poring over the Mexico posts for routing and
accommodations.

You do a good RR. Tricepilot, too. I've learned alot from you both - thanks!
