It is indeed. You can buy cheap guitars and very high-end guitars there, all acoustic, steel or nylon string. Probably the most famous luthier producing out of there today is Francisco Navarro. His guitars are sold here in Houston by Memorial Imports. There is also German Vazquez Rubio who now lives in Los Angeles. He has a cult following in L.A. His acoustic guitars cost $10k+. Paracho has produced some famous luthiers that are now in different parts of the world. I hope to make it there some day, but not on the bike, since I'll probably buy an instrument or two.

Well, the word "permaban" was used, IIRC. And Hombre_Secreto is gone as well.

Looks like the rest of us are gonna hafta step it up some.

Maybe Bato will have some exciting encounters and take us along with some pix.

He did the same thing. LOL! You can ask all you want but you'll never see the scar from where it had to burnt out from.

Meanwhile, thanks to Bato I am very curious about that tire iron box end combo.
Very interesting.
Where does that come from?

No fair, you are covering up the flying urine sample in that cockpit photo, Bato! It doesn't need to be hidden or protected, the German engineers in Spandau designed it to be flaunted.

Hey, it appears Guatemala is hosting a Harley event...

"If you're among the majority of voters who think the U.S. Congress is a joke, imagine a congress literally composed of clowns. That's what is happening right now in Guatemala City, where two hundred professional clowns have gathered for the fourth annual Latin American Clown Congress. Clowns from across Central American, South America and the Caribbean gather each year for three days in the country's capital city to exchange ideas and attend workshops.
Of course, if you were one of those kids who found clowns to be terrifying, this gathering could stir up all kinds of childhood traumas.
Among the variety of clowns in attendance are jugglers, a clown dressed as a soldier and even one dressed as a nun. Participants in the Clown Congress parade through the streets of Guatemala City before getting down to business."


It's their 4th annual, somebody is doing something right.

They are all amateurs. Our Congress has 535 professionals. Luckily they don't parade often, although they are quite skilled at tricking people.
