I gotta freshly patched Anakee II rear and a TKC80 front with about 1200 miles left on it that I can contribute towards your México ride. Should help me pass you in the turns.

Dang! I forgot just how...errrr...."nimble" the TKC80 is on the front when new. I remember now.

I'm logging the rides he shows me. Time permitting I'll eventually get them organized into something distributable.
Sounds like we're creeping towards some kinda gathering or sumpin'. Maybe a rally-type event in October or the following April? Possibly something on the order of a MexTrek event but based in Veracruz instead of Galeana?

Wonder who might best organize such an event??

The other thing is, Tuckers hit the cow at 66 mph in daylight in Baja.

Sobers me up to think back on running the (few) straight portions of Mex 200 at 90 plus a couple of weeks ago....I think what if Casey the Critter decided to cross the road (to get to the other side, chickenheads) just as you're passin' through.

Keep stories like that of Tuckers in mind hombres

PS also note his comments on bike insurance in Mexico...

I doubt he had one (I'll ask him) but you make the good point/reminder about the TVIP and a damaged/disabled moto - which of course is, comparatively, a distant secondary factor to the news that he's healing up and will be fine after the biff.

That guy should send a $1000 peso thank you note to the Virgen De Guadalupe.

He's fortunate he doesn't need the benefits of a 'repatriation of remains' clause.

Noooooooooo fundraising!

What an incredible outcome! We all know of others who did not fair nearly as well. Makes me appreciate my MedJet Assist policy all the more. And look forward to losing more weight and ordering a MotoPort suit. My current kit would not protect against an arm wound like that.

I have ridden up on burros and horses wandering around on and near the road in various parts of Baja, during the day. When I do see them, I always slow way down. You never know what they will do at the last minute, like deer. Let's be careful out there kids.

I came around a corner on the highway passing a car when a grazing horse decided to wander out into my lane.

He was tethered, but with typical mexicano logic the rope was long enough let him get halfway into my lane. I got right over against the car (much to the drivers surprise) and hoped the damn rope would get taught.

I squeezed through with a foot either side and and a pressing need for clean underwear. All at about 80 mph.

Watch out for thems wildlifes peeps.
