Basically, user error, I think. Full story here.

Yeah looking forward to meeting him. In Tikal tomorrow, if it stops raining... it's pissing down now. Every time I've tried to visit ruinas on this trip it's been a tropical downpour. Fingers crossed for tomorrow!

[QUOTE=MikeMike;

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?[/QUOTE]

No way., Jose A . I'm riding to San Diego in a few to do Baja, D ferry and who knows what else

Bato, I think the club guys are heading over there during Carnaval, probably around Feb. 9.
Keep an eye out for Bob Loblaw, you' ll enjoy riding with him.

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.
Ok. We were hoping to take 2 easy days to ride to Perote. We wiill bump it up a notch and get an earlier start.
Looking forward to your photos. Here's on near Fray Francisco - San Jerome backroad from Actopan to Pachuca

Thanks again for the routing info for Veracruz

Here is a GoPro video made in Taxco

This probably sets the bar a bit high for the casual Mexico video maker

Great vid to watch with Sunday morning coffee......

As El Barto would say: Hay caramba.

That Mexico is definitely not safe.

I will run that on my big screen and watch along with a barf bag.

My son just stood here and watched the whole thing.

His direct quote: "Only in Mexico would you see something like that - they would never allow that in a US city"

He loved it as he's into parkour. We talked about how it's "bicycle parkour in Mexico"

I'd love to see that video in Hi Def in an IMax theater

I'm going to Taxco today. I'll try to recreate it..

What you don't see in that video is the guy getting off his bike, turning around and yelling "ok, which of you bastards pushed me?"
