In Zacatecas now after riding from Sayulita. Took the road less traveled from Guadalajara to Zacatecas (Mex 23) and it was really beautiful but totally unpatrolled by any police or military. All in all a beautiful day on the bike. Viva Mexico!

Ace, in Canada we have "Members of Parliament" and "Members of Provincial Parliament" aka MP's or MPP's, respectively.
The "members" part is usually the only thing that applies, some of them truly act like what medical science refers to as (regarding males) a "member".
Yeah, I understand how the Canadian system works. However, he complaining about a situation here in the USA like he's a citizen.;.....NOT. Don't complain about our policies until you fix yours.

I was just stating a fact. You need to chill out.

Incidentally I'm a legal visitor to the US and unless I missed something I think free speech and the freedom to complain is still intact and I don't need your approval for anything

Don't ever forget it's our policies and Constitution that allow you to come south and complain about how you perceive your treatment. Considering the fact that I am a US citizen and I vote, it happens that you do need my approval. Every time I vote I am guaranteeing your opportunity to carp and complain in my country. Don't forget you are a guest here; legal or not.

That's a nice road.

Good to hear you're still out there having fun.

In today's Mexico, nothing says, "I Love You" better than a shopping cart and the chipped paint of a steel railing...



Veracruz!
Cortez would pretty much fill his pantaloons if he could see it now.
I just noticed I forgot about the cigarette butt.

23 is the best. Not much traffic and some nice places to stop and eat along the way.
How long are you going to be in Zacatecas? Like to meet you if things work out.

Hey Roy,
I'm planning on hitting the road today because I've been gone so long already. I haven't checked the weather though and if its cold and raining I might just stay and watch the games, walk around, and be the tourist. Saludos, Jimmy

The weather report says it should rain again this afternoon and then sunny starting tomorrow for the rest of the week...
Let me know the next time you come through. I have room for another bike in my man cave and an extra bed.
Ride safe.

HWY 150? talk at Cafeceto say 200 at Tomatal, Google Earth MX shows a road 200 at Tlachicon to San Bartolome Loxicha. Then the uncompleted section, with the road joining HWY 175.

If you make it to Zicitella stop by, I rented a house in the Garden of Eden. Tom
