Arte.....you are reminding me of eating some Tacos de Burro after a night of Mezcal and Tequila. Here is the 2CV version of your pic, San Blas.



And nobody on that beach but him, every morning he'd visit.....he liked stale tortillas.North of Zihuataneo.

Devils Backbone

This was taken near Durango, MX. I was about 50 miles into the ride from Durango to Mazatlan when my rear ring gear bearing went out. I hired these guys who had just put a new?(NO LIGHTS) box on their pick up to haul me down to Mazatlan for repairs.. I agreed to pay 2000 peso's. Before we took off the brothers both did the sign of the cross, pumped the brakes to get the hydralic fluid going and off we went. After we were about 20 miles, I was asked if I wanted to stop for weed, but told them nothing until were were safe in Mazatlan. Another 20 miles and they stopped and asked if I wanted to get some snort, again I told them nothing until we reached Mazatlan. After another 20 miles I finally agreed to buy them 2 cervaza's, nothing more.. We did reach Mazatlan safely, tired to unload the bike but they had pulled the keys to make sure before we unloaded at Pemex they were paid. Just good business.
