Apprehensive about gastrointestinal issues and unable to sleep, Aaron fashioned this design out of used toilet-water popsicle sticks.

With home-made popsicles not having a high enough price-point, Luis contemplates the market for gringo kidneys as he already has the cooler.

Oh. Almost forgot. Weazybuddha put on this spread for us when we got back from border entry paperwork Thursday night. It was great.

Motosierragorda and I had communicated via pm prior to the trip but our plans didn't coincide. When we came through Jalpan again to stay the night we pulled up at the hotel Mision de Jalpan. Within 3 minutes Eduardo shows up on his KLR. Purely by happenstance. Spent some quite enjoyable time together.

We'll see each other again. Jalpan is a wonderful destination and Eduardo is great resource in the area and a good guy, too.

For me the best part of your RR is now knowin' what's possible on my pig. Triumph Tiger 800XC.

All the commentary on the artwork is is pretty cool too.

You just might have missed the point here. Just maybe.......

Well, come on in. The water is fine.

And psst. For future reference. Less words. More pics. Happier audience.

And just so ya know, it's rarely the bike that makes the difference on a ride like ours. It's usually the rider. I don't know much about the little Trumpet but it would probably do well enough, kitted out appropriately with a competent rider.

Back to the fun.
