Day 3

They had a "No Picture" sign at the museum, so I did not take any pictures, but I looked at when I was there four years ago and we took pictures in the museum on that trip. I guess they changed their rules.

Day 4

We rode from Palenque to Merida today. Going to visit Johana, who I met in El Salvador a couple years ago. She has married a man from Merida and relocated.

We stopped at a road side diner for some of the best tacos I have ever had! These things had three times the meat and filling as you normally get! A group of about five kids were walking circles around and around the moto checking it out as we ate. I walked over and told them I would let them sit on it after I finished breakfast. here is three of them:

Day 4

Mostly just flat riding. Rode along side the Gulf of Mexico for a while. We are in the Historic El Centro of the city. It seems pretty nice!

The moto turned over 10,000 miles today. That is over 4,500 miles in less than four weeks, but the pace is slowing drastically.

The new White KTM is looking good. Looking forward to your high mileage feedback on the 990.

She was not there. It was wet most of the day, I don't think her merchandise would have fared well in the environment. The vendors that were there were selling things that would not be damaged by moisture.

She was in DF when Donnie hit Palenque

Plus, she's getting married soon, and her days selling artesanias at Palenque may be coming to an end. Remains to be seen though.

Great ride so far! Thanks for taking us along. Your report on Palenque really has me excited to get down there.

How would you compare the KTM to the BMW GS since you have had both?
