    Chasing Schizzman and Jimmez on the Ezpinazo del Diablo was like chasing a ghost.

    I so stink as far as track day skills go, Mo' betta' fo' me to slow down and enjoy Mexico.

    Trying to keep up behind those guys, it's like being behind a "doble semi remolque" but no place to pass.

    Alllllrighty....

    For those of you that want to follow some of Schizzman & Jimmex's lines through the Espinazo, here's video I shot of me doing that. You can't really see Jimmex much.... he's too far ahead.

    Please, don't laugh too hard at some of the lines I took. I tend to hang way on the outside on blind corners.

    I am certain that you too will revel in the sound of my ferocious angry sewing machine, the R1100GS.

    Signage, rest areas, guard rails, decent pavement...what luxury! If that was on this coast, they'd qualify it as a "cuota" route!

    I'm hoping it does too, about December thru March. :lol3

    I had good and fearless leaders on the return leg, and it was fun!
