Got invited to take a nice Sunday cruise down the coast to a little fishing village called Engabao. Luckily for me my wife had to work so I would get to fully enjoy the riding that day! Along for the cruise were Steve(the local guru of these china bikes) his wife Jessica, and Jim and Sheri who are opening Salinas' first REAL coffee shop and waffle house!
Through Atahualpa-

Back into the countryside, notice the road quality deteriorating.

And finally into some fun dirt road riding that felt, looked and smelled exactly like northern baja which is one of the few things I miss(well missed 'cuz now i can pretend!)
Steve on his 'motard with the little wheels.

Bike parking in Engobao.

We had some fresh seafood, a couple cold bears and watched the locals scrounge up a few scrappy waves.

Headed back pretty much the same way we came in with a quick stop for some water.

Not a bad way to spend a sunday though i am currently working on putting a ride that is at least 50% dirt and the other fellows are trying to figure out how to get their wives to stay home

ATTGATT has not quite sunk in for these folks yet and i have little doubt they will eventually pay for it dearly. I pulled at 10 am in 30*C heat in boots, pants, jacket and gloves and got ribbed. "Are you cold?"
By the end of the day everyone else was sunburnt i also truely believe that I stay cooler while moving as my sweat does not instantly dry. I do have to drink a shit load of water but i carry two pints at all time.
