Trebuchet

I heard that they were using trebuchets on the border to fling product across. This is the first picture I have seen. The next thing is the air cannon they use for "punkin chunkin". Probably oughta leave the gun home if you are going to ride around south of the border. They don't have a second amendment or habeas corpus down there (well we don't have that anymore either). Gringos n' guns no bueno.

Pueblo Viejo

Stayed there almost exactly six years ago. Don't remember the dog but remember the place, the cottages, common room with a great fireplace and really nice people. Did you find my Zega case pannier lid there?

Yes in fact I did find that lid.

Except I thought all it was, was a fancy comal, so I used it to fry up breakfast then I tossed it.

Pannier lid

I thought that would be it's fate but hoped someone would get more than one breakfast out of it! Waste of good German aluminum. Someone could have used it for something on one of those Austrian bikes or a KLR.

Aluminum

Thanks Loblaw... great thing to read while I am sitting in the neurologists office waiting to find out what is going on with my gourd... there are certain aspects of advancing age that truly suck.

So you live vicariously by my comments?

I am finding that the older that I get the less interesting that the additional hangover is. And I no longer see the need to demonstrate my once super human resistant to alcohol. But the occasional good story among friends and beers is ... Well ... Inspirational ;)

Any stories Amigo?

I just came back from a ride to and from Wisconsin and vertigo hit me badly. Our very own Schizz helped save my worthless ass.

Getting older sucks but it's better than the alternative.

Our Man Chango

I was fortunate to run into Chango at the Harvest Classic in Luckenbach this past weekend.

He is probably the most knowledgeable person around on the history of motorcycles. Kiko is also in that league.

He had his hack rig there, and another vintage BMW. Everyone was fascinated by his displays.

He has another hack rig that he has taken south of the border, most recently, to Trail Boss's Mextrek ride at Galeana.





Good to see you there, my man
