What? No burros, cows, chickens, drunks, potholes, rocks, puddles, stalled trucks, stray dogs, or topes? Mark, are you sure you didn't shoot that video in Banff, Alberta? ;)

Don't worry... I've got the spooky horses video from the cobblestone road from Real de 14.

Goats, sheep, burros, taxicabs and more.

Somewhere, I've also got a shot of a cow that was LITERALLY tits up.......

I need to do some editing. I've got several hours of video to sort thru.

I'm having a hard time getting motivated to do something 'productive' here on this Saturday AM.
Its 39* out- I guess I'd rather be in Mexico.

This winter, I can sit in front of my TV, with my helmet on, and watch my videos.

Like I often say to my sometime riding buddy, "You know, Jorge, there are people that spend thousands of dollars and weeks of their time to ride the roads we ride for free whenever we want".
We contemplate this while the waitress arrives with the food and drinks.
Then we toast to it.
Here is a sample of what 99% of riders miss when they come through here, except for Arte and Andres and the boys and the guy who was riding the Zongolica (but missed some other real good stuff).
This is a typical paved road, the dirt ones are better. Yellow lines? Now, who needs two of those things when one will do? ;)

This was from east to west on the Espinoza, at a slower more leisurely (ie safer?) pace. No trucks in this video, but there is a rice-racer car, that did stay on the correct side of the yellow lines.

I do have video that is a bit more exciting, from the west to east run from Mazatlan.


Nice video! Taking still photos if that area is always kind of a joke. It's cool to see the video.

I REALLY need to get a video camera to mount on my helmet, that is really cool!

Never mind shoulders and those pesky reflective stripes at the edges of the road that just confuse us anyway.

Actually the drop off from that particular stretch is no more than a couple of hundred meters. Mere child's play...
Remember, after the first 20 meters it isn't going to make a whole lot of difference, anyways.
I like how some of the highway engineers here use barbed wire for guardrails. Great idea! You get wrapped up in
rusty barbed wire as you plummet down the side of the mountain......what a sense of humor they have!
In this picture the drop off is a little more interesting, that is the view towards the coast, the white stuff on the left is a bank of clouds that is stretching out over the ocean.
It's about half way up the Misantla-Naolinco highway, one of my local favorites especially where it really gets rolling after El Nueve and towards the infamous "Z" curve named after the letter and not the cartel.

Mexico adventure

I'm leavin the 12th for old Mexico !! I am planning on not doin to much planning . Goin to pass thru Palomis then head to the eastern side of the Sea of Cortez . I have 3 weeks so I'll maybe follow the coastline untill I have to head back.

Maybe take a ferry to the Baja and head up to Mikes Sky Ranch and up to my sister's in Desert Palms.

Hopefully my wife will be able to meet me there and if God is willing and the dam don't break. Then hopefully meet with Glen Hegsted who also resides there .

If you live in Mexico and would like to meet please send me a PM.

Peace out , Dan

Pepe's and Sally's are good but Modern Apizza up on State St. is markedly better. The cannolis at Libby's are great also.

Seriously, Schizz is the expert here since he started his Mexican travels on a Harley and has recently joined the Team of Darkness, a/k/a BMW.

There are also a few others here that ride Harleys.
Yup, spent a month in Mexico last year on my Harley Ultra - had a great time. This year, I added a BMW 800GS and will be doing my Mexico trip on it. Was a tough decision on which to take.
