Now, enough partisan bickering. If I wanted to hear that, I'd turn on the news. It's motorcycle riding, it's supposed to be fun!!


Let me guess. Schizz thought that he got lucky at the Red Dragon. When I was there it was an interesting place but I have heard that it went transvestite during the last few years. And, no ... not making this up.

Anyway, like you said. Childish stuff. This thread used to be fun. I am going to do my best to keep it that way.

An 80 year old and an 81 year old with a bitter rivalry to see who can get to the top of Everest first. If Schizz had his way this would be me and him.

I was not "getting all serious on you". We have that same rape joke in English and probably in every other language where women (and men) get raped. Rape is an act, not of sexuality, but of extreme personal violence and control. The "joke" was inappropriate here or anywhere else. It also happens to be "Sexual Assault Awareness Month" here.

You were highly critical of some gringo attitudes about traveling in Mexico and obeying rules on these pages yet you have posted your own videos that show a disregard for safety and those very laws. You can't have it both ways.

For whatever reason you have chosen to live in the USA. You criticize us for lacking cultural sensitivity when traveling to Mexico yet exhibit little sensitivity to our culture...you can't have that both ways either...respect is a two way street. "El Norte" is not just a place to escape whatever you are running from in Mexico, make money in, or shit on. We are highly flawed in many ways. Gives you no excuse to go "all gringo" on us.

I appreciate you posting "Cielito Lindo". We learned it as school children in the 1950's when we were studying in geography about "our friendly neighbors to the South" who spoke Spanish. The likelihood of me meeting a Mexican in Virginia in 1955 was pretty remote. How times have changed!

This is all a bit off IMS topic but traveling safely is about listening and understanding. When we all do both it makes for a better experience.

Aaaand...rape is not a joke...period.

Well said.......thank you very much.

We are going to take our time on this three week trip, but we could hang out sometime when we get there. We would like to spend a few days in Oaxaca, drop the paniers and do some day trips up the canyons.

I don't mean to hijack your ride but it is a little cooler from Saltillo go south to Guanajuanto through Zacatecas. Last week end my son Pilot815, and I slabbed it from SMA to Saltillo and it was pritty hot...if you do decide to come through Zacatecas let me know if you would like a local to talk with. (I think you have PMd with Pilot815 before)

No matter how hard you try you will be either lucky or on a Mexican Rat Ride rally to average anywhere near even 80kms an hour.
It'll be tiring, tired can make funny things happen, funny things on Mexican highways are usually best avoided.
Go for it if you want, but it will be the green blur.

I have no idea where Arte is, but if you find him, get him to post up the Rally Ruta Del Cafe 2013 detalles.

Bato, if you want to talk border radio AM, count me in! I worked in AM a long time ago, but not in the USA.

Why do I expect the ghost of Wolfman Jack to occupy this thread?

The Wolfman was nothing compared to the goat and monkey gonad maestro quack hustler that started it all.
Radio is an incestuous business and there are some fascinating 6 degrees of separation stories and real mud you find out. Many talented young radio people are eclipsed and gone before their time when the massive egos at some stations suck all the air out of the room.
For some people it is very hard to maintain a full on hatred for someone for 25 years, if you ever worked in radio you know how easy and paradoxically healthy it can be.

Note the part about the tranny and the traction control from Transport Canada.

They'll never admit there was a problem, but there is something about that bike...like the factory turbos and the old big Kawi cop bikes. At least with the H1's and Mach III's you knew what you were in for.
I had lunch with a fellow in Texas six weeks ago that had already purchased one and had put several hundred miles on it. Hey Mike! Wake up down there, we might need you!

Ain't she purdy? (only time I think Donnie ever washed her!)
And thanks for all the extra's you included Mr D, it is much appreciated.
You are a good guy. (but don't tell nobody)


Hey Royce!

There is one thing I forgot to tell you! If you find from time to time when you are riding through the small towns that the "hookers" all run out to the road trying to flag you down. They are mistaken, there must be someone else with a moto just like that one!
