    So I'm on vacation until February 12th and had planned to go to Guatemala with a friend, but things got in the way so he had to cancel on me.

    Anybody around central Mexico looking for someone to ride with or share costs with or something? I'd like to head to the southeast- Oaxaca/Chiapas/Yucatan or Guatemala. Looking to go someplace warmer/more interesting than the freezing pit of Toluca that I live in.

    For those who care, I ride an 1100GS, so I tend to avoid true offroad terrain, but this being Mexico I take what comes my way. And I speak Spanish.

    I will be ready to go in a couple of days, probably Thursday or Friday at the latest.

    Yeah that'd be great, thanks. Especially those that are still in Mexico. I have to be back at work in Toluca on Feb 11th, so I can't venture too far south, but I'd like to get to Tikal at least.

    Man, you're killing me with that screen name. I will probably take off this weekend, maybe Sunday, maybe Monday. Still gotta do some last minute service stuff and we just moved and I can't find my crush washers. Wanna head out towards Oaxaca? PM me your cel, I got a new phone and lost a bunch of my contacts, I don't think I have your number anymore, nor you mine. Or ask Eric, he's got mine.
