Yes, that was us! About 20 miles down the road I remembered you were in the area. I should have stopped, it would have been good to see you again. It's been a while since I saw you in Hot Springs.

On another note, anybody know a good bike mechanic in Tula de Allende?

Hey Jimmex, looks like you are somehow deleting the closing tag when you quote, looks like this: [/QUOTE]. Put that at the end and the quote should be displayed nice and neat.

So, this MotoGP thing. I suspect all you rich dudes are buying something other than General Admission tickets, are you?

Trice, the BMW agency is open and operating in Oaxaca and has been for some time now. It is owned and run by the same people that have Puebla and Veracruz.
If you like Hank' s service, you are going to like Raphsel Lago at MotoPits, his shop here in Boca Del Rio. Ask Bato, Andy, Craneguy, the Mystery Rider, and a lot more riders. He also is always up for a ride, see if you can hang with him through Huatusco.

I'd like to thank you guys for helping make my 2 months in Mexico enjoyable and trouble-free. In particular, those great guys I've met, or have hosted me or helped in some way - Turkeycreek, SR, MikeMike, Animo, Bato, Andy, Jimmex, Ken and Carol Duvall. Thanks guys.

But most of all, the countless Mexicans who've laughed with me (and probably, at me - my fault for not knowing enough spanish) and for consistently being kind, helpful and honest. For me, Mexico has been perfectly safe... anyone thinking about coming down, don't think twice (but do your homework first).

I'll be checking in here once in a while to make sure everything's still safe!



The very best to you. It was great to meet you and we will be following your journey south.

Abrazos!

You're a rich dude,
and you've gone too far
'Cause you know it
don't matter anyway

You can rely
on the old man's money
You can rely
on the old man honey

It's a bitch dude
but it's gone too far
'Cause you know
it don't matter anyway

Say money money
won't get you too far,
Get you too far

And don't you know,
don't you know
That it's wrong to take
what he's giving you

So far gone, on your own
You can get along
if you try to be strong
But you'll never be strong

'Cause
You're a rich dude,
and you've gone too far
'Cause you know
it don't matter anyway

You can rely
on the old man's money
You can rely
on the old man honey

It's a bitch dude
and it's gone too far
'Cause you know
it don't matter anyway

Say money money
won't get you too far,
Get you too far

High and dry,
and out of the rain
It's so easy to hurt others
when you can't feel pain

And don't you know
that a love can't grow
'Cause there's too much to give,
'cause you'd rather live
For the thrill of it all, oh

You're a rich dude,
and you've gone too far
'Cause you know
it don't matter anyway

You can rely
on the old man's money
You can rely
on the old man's money

It's a bitch dude
and it's gone too far
'Cause you know
it don't matter anyway

Say money
but it won't get you too far,
Say money
but it won't get you too far,
Say money
but it won't get you too far,
Get you too far

And you say
You can rely
on the old man's money
You can rely
on the old man's money

You're a rich dude,
a rich dude
Oh, you're a rich, rich dude, yeah
Say money
but it won't get you too far,
Oh, get ya too far

Yuma

OK if anyone cares I'm in Yuma crossing at San Luis Colorado tomorrow morning. I,m assuming the spare hall sensor is not required.

Should anyone need one I also carry a rear drive big bearing being a typical paranoid BMW owner. Also a doable roadside fix.

We'll see how the heavy (all the spare parts and tools) big pig handles in the sand on Monday. Hope I have better luck than Trevor

I thought I heard you had a Tenere? In which case why the talk about all the spare BMW parts? Are you just taking the piss out of the BMW guys? The only spare you might need on the Tenere is a rear shock

Mike Mike thanks for the PDF file for Veracruz riding. We are at the top end and will be leaving El Tajin area in a day or 2 or 3. We will not be able to knock out the whole route in a few days. Any suggestions for hotels along the route? We may take 3 days to go from Papalanta to Tehaucan.

Hekto, you' ll find accomodations in Perote, Ciudad Serdan, Ciudad Mendoza, Orizaba, and Cordoba, other than that, you' ll be camping.
I am going to head to the Serdan altiplano tomorrow and get some pics of the crater lakes. Leaving before dawn, I hope I can get some sweet natural candy color effect morning light.

Bato, that trip was organized through the local BMW club, too rich for my blood, they are paying out 40,000 to 50,000 pesos a pop, trucking the bikes to the border. I am not much of a club guy down here, though I was in Canada, they ran things different up there, it wasn' t about restaurant riding and trucking bikes. But hey, whatever floats the boat, my opinions never matter very much anyways LOL! Are you joining them?

Nope, thanks anyway. The RT and my Tiger are both fated to be trailer queens tomorrow. I have a write up of the whole ugly affair but it can wait another day until the bikes are back home, mine here in Banámichi and Curt's in Bisbee. Yes, my bike crapped out as well. I guess I should not have said all those very witty things about BMWs. Since I maintain Mrs. TC's F650GS I though I could get away with it. Karma is a bitch.
