The Plan

Trice...

I don't know if we will see you on the way down. We leave Leon Sunday morning. Heading due south to Ixtapa / zihuat. to hook up with EmilianoXL650. Then south to Oaxaca. I keep wanting to start a ride report to post some pics because I feel bad putting pics of my fun trip on this Is Mexico Safe. but it's been busy. Just got home from seeing Man of Steel with my bro's inlaws and brother and sister in law. I'll get some pics going soon. Today we looked for a dirt route from Guanajuato towards San Felipe. Could not find it...but found some Dirt / rocks to ride in for a couple hours and it was a kick in the pants.

Dirt pix:



Jax went the wrong way and got his bike high centered. Could not figure out how to get it off the rock. I had to pull the rock out. Very dangerous these mexico rocks.



SMA did not seem to dangerous today. A huge wedding outside the Catedral and Parkour Youths having a blast:


The four of them did a front flip at the same time. Mexico seemed pretty safe to me on this Saturday!

Sounds like I'm missing out! Hope you both have great riding. How long is the trip, 3 weeks?

Cuídense.

Put some pants on.

I'm proud of you guys. You have obviously learned how to blend in, get the 411, and make friends in the process. As you know, all it takes is being a gentleman. T'is an easy process to enjoy Mexico once the fear factor is down.

I'm surprised Trice had a shirt on. He has been working those abs pretty hard getting ready for this dirt ride! Happy Father's Day!

They were extras in "The Wild Bunch" and in fact, the guy next to me (second from right) was in the opening scene with the ants.

They were having a massive family dinner and the padre of the whole bunch has a fantastic winery in Parras

I love Mexico!

He's probably going over to Tio Lucas to learn how to cook.

The Wild Bunch Hacienda

Well, we really hit pay dirt this time. A couple years ago, or so, I read Pedro Navaja's RR about Parras de la Fuente and it really put the hook in me to see the town, tour the winery and especially check out the old hacienda where one of my favorite westerns was filmed. Last night we met some locals who worked as extras, some had bit parts, and they gave me the owner's contact info. I couldn't get him by phone so we hired a taxi for the day and went in search of the hacienda. My Google Maps research paid off and we found the place. The owner came out to greet us then proceeded to give the Grand Tour of the place. Trice and I were like the 6th and 7th gringos to visit the hacienda in the last 5-6 years. Had a great time and now need to watch the movie again.

More pix later
