When Sjoerd returns from this car trip to Mexico with Aaltje, he goes back to Ontario to take care of business and then returns through here in mid March on the KLR to visit another friend in Bandera (Texas Hill Country) on his way back to Mexico again.

I say we break out the KLRs and take him for a ride in the Texas Hill Country and then to a BBQ.

And bring your notepads and your maps.

I did not say do not go to Mexico. I just said it is not for me. Your remarks make me realize if you do not follow the ADV herd then you are considered fair game to blast away at. Fire away boys, your insults fly off me. I am a big boy and can take the heat.

For those headed to Mexico, I say have a great ride. The roads are awesome, as is the scenery and its people. It is not on my bucket list. If it is on yours, great have an awesome ride.

My over 250,000 miles of riding a motorcycle puts me in a position of my own opinions. Does that make me a smarter rider, who knows, it just gives me a right to my beliefs. I will respect yours but in turn I expect the same.

Desde la sierra fria hoy

Meanwhile, up on the stairway to heaven earlier today...As the song goes "There's a feeling I get, when I look to the west"...
And yet again, not a narco was stirring!
This is the kind of riding you get when you are in Mexico. If you don't like it, stay home and tell everyone you know how dangerous Mexico is.

She was looking good again, today, boys!
She doesn't give it up two weeks in a row without a little pain.

Hey SR, next time I do this ride I am going to snap some geology pics just for you. The problem is stopping to take pics because you just want to keep riding and riding. When you make it over, give me a heads up, I still have the mining vids and I can show some of the "sierra fria", the danger is that you'll stay another week! Or a month LOL!
