"Tickets are $109, all fees included,..."

I take it they are not expecting a large turnout of KLR riders...

I'm, "all in" on this festival. I hope we close our border with Texas for that week. We don't need them coming up and starting trouble.

You know, after two decades of living here and riding here, you are only the second person that I have heard of that says they miss topes.

Not much of a trend happening.

Topes are a daily pain in the ass, period. They cost you time, money, and parts. Constant acceleration and deceleration and the related wear and tear on brakes and clutches, steering bearings, and damage from unmarked, square edge ones gets real old, real fast. They are a hazard in the rain, they accumulate all kinds of road debris at their bases, and the only good thing about them is that yes, you can pass a line of trucks or cars from time to time.

Miss them? I could give a rat's ass if they suddenly all disappeared, tomorrow.

A la chingada con los topes. Punto.

Using a tope to practice "jumps" is probably not the best use of anyone's time. You couldn't find any other road features to use to practice "jumps"? It's Mexico. Get on any brecha and I guarantee you'll find plenty of practice for "jumps" within a few hundred meters. I know a really good jump that is located between Plan de las Hayas and Alto Lucero, I think Arte and Andres can vouch for that one. LOL! You can be the Benelux version of Evel Kinevel all day (or night, right Arte?) long on that one.

Topes. Its all fun and games until someone gets hurt or you have to fix something. There's fun topes (maybe 2 or 3), and then everyone's got a story about "Oh shit, where did that come from"

I'd hate to live with the #$*@ things down my street and every street and every state highway everyday. bleck.

So much fun too taking a clapped out Tsuru taxi around the streets of anywhere, Mexico, and getting a free spinal readjustment every 100 feet, no matter how careful the driver is.

Bet the cwiopracters keep busy in Mexico.


But, every guy has to love the bewbies topes sign. How can you not?
