Today, Friday February 03 2012, the Mexican Navy is assuming the regular duties of the transito police in Veracruz/Boca del Rio. This means that the navy guys with the blue camo outfits who are patrolling as police will now carry a transito officer to help coordinate any ticket writing or accident investigation but the armed forces guys take precedence and will carry out the work, the transito will only be there to advise.
The navy have been in charge of the command of the transitos for the last little while, but now they are going to add the actual patrolling to the regular police patrols they have been doing since they took over the policing duties when all the cops and police bureaucrats were canned.

He seems to end up on a lot of Trice's rides for some reason.

Maybe its a book signing tour or something....

Left Cuetzalan early and arrived Bernal in the middle of the afternoon.

Believe it or not, my favorite Italian dinner of all time in Bernal (Pueblo Magico) by a chef from Florence.

Life does not get any better than this.

I have the "Library Room" in a private home in Bernal, books everywhere and a fountain and bougainvillea in the courtyard.

Two Old Guys Lost in Chihuahua

Met up with Olegeezer in Prisidio and we booked down to Chi following a Pentecostal missionary preacher wearing colors and riding an old shovel head Harley. He let us stay on the floor in his little church and we did a bit of prayin' and trestifyin' and generally had a good time, for a night without beer. Then met up with Tury who not only helped us plan a great route through the Copper Canyon but got a motorcycle mechanic to make a house call and diagnose a persistent carb problem that two of my ham-fisted rebuilds did not solve. He pulled the carb apart right there in the street, showed me two parts I should replace when I get home, and pretty much made the bike respond like it used to. Arturo was a most gracious host, showing off his stable of road and dualsport bikes, and helping us with maps and money exchange. The Geezer and I are now in Arturo's recommended Hotel Maria Dolores and ready for some cervesa!

Every time I click on this thread and read, the want to ride to Mexico becomes more of a need. I don't want to be the average Joe who adds this to his "bucket list". I want to do it. I'm 25 with no prominent aspirations besides riding an unknown land to me.

That's not the worst thing in the world is it?

Find the eqiuivalent of the best mescal in the world, find a new best band (Ry Cooder), and in God's place (Bernal)

Bernal is off the radar

Get out a map and check out the quick jump from 120 to Bernal, and how close Bernal is to 57. Bernal is only 1.5 hours from San Miguel de Allende - OR - connect with 57 to DF - OR - Arco Norte.
