Wicked El Mapa

Recently, somebody posted a "map" of Mexico showing "danger areas", and was discussing mapping a route through it to avoid the "shaded areas"


If you try to map a route through areas where danger might be, you have to put yourself in a bunker. I felt very safe all through Mexico last time. Being able to show people you are truly interested in their culture and them as people is so easy for them to see. When you show it...they can't help but show you true kindness. There are bad people everywhere. Worst thing that has ever happened to me happened a year ago on my way to work. I hit a deer. 6 days in the hospital. Today is the one year aniversary and I'm planing a Mexico trip June 3rd with my 18 year old son. Here is the map we are using to work out a route. No shaded areas here:





If you were ever wondering if you could take a copy of the Guia Roji and color copy each page and then cut and paste them all together into a huge wall map of mexico...It can be done. I had my Spanish IV students last semester work on the project when we had a few minutes extra time at the end of a few classes. It was a blast. I've been taking notes and copies of many of the routes and points of interest you all esteem. I'ts all going in the mix for a great three week trip.

@Bingo43:

Outstanding! Glad you've recovered and are making big plans for Mexico. What a trip to make at 18. He'll remember it for the rest of his life. So cool.

Assuming it's the two of you on two bikes, what are your plans for TVIPs?

I wonder why the tank is black on the F650GS and the side panels are red.
You know, at a BMW rally in Mexico that would be a serious fashion faux pas that could see you cut from the herd! Serious dirty looks, likely a sanction or two, and you will be considered suspect! It would be bad enough you are riding an F650GS and not an over farkled GS1200 Adventure with Louis Vuitton Touratech matching side cases and top box along with an award winning graphic design short sleeved buttoned cotton shirt that catapulted your club to national stardom for winning the national club shirt design contest. LOL!

Question Ma Pa words

Many words that end in ma and pa are masculine words, but end in an A.

el mapa, el systema, el clima, el problema etc. They just break the normal rule that words that end in a A are feminine words...

Don't get them confused with words like el agua, el águila, el hacha.
These are feminine words that because of a pronounciation issue get the masculine singular defininte article (el) infront of a feminine word. Agua.
It sounds dorky to say la agua. Say it out loud three times. laagua, laagua...laagua. Spanish does not like repeated sounds like that, so that is why it is el agua. It's still a feminine word as far as gender is concerned.

Very funny! This F650GS is my son's and it will make the trip to Mexico even if I do get a sanction or two. It was prepped and ready to go last year...but with the deer smashing I did not feel well enough to go. Now that it has 18k miles on it, we have realized it's not the greatest bike for what we do...but he got it when he was younger. We bought it from an online auction COPART. We actually bought two and put the two together into one bike. He liked the color black and I liked red so we compromised. The actual color is obviously the red. They never made that one in black. We are not the Louis Vuitton type. We have taken this bike much in the dirt. He crawls along infront of me through trecherous terrain. Swinging bridges ride here in Missouri is a favorite. The TKC tires get mashed up quickly when he is riding it. It has been a great compromise bike. Fast enough to have fun on, but not so fast that he has smashed himself up. That is what we got the FZ1 for. Just finished that one. Was crashed on the left side and we repainted it and got some side engine covers and good to go.

I ride an F650GS twin in red. 50,000 kms on it here in Mexico in the past 3 and a half years. It can do a lot more than most people think, never felt the need for an F800. Ridden it on dirt, rock, all types of surfaces and with the right tires it is very capable.
