    Thanks for all the route input. Going to put some of it to paper and fire off some more questions when I have a minute to process it all.

    I have changed my flight and decided to make the push from PV to the border. It has been a frustrating experience but lessons learned. I will land in PV the evening of the 25 and be ready to get on the road sunrise on the 26. My papers expire on the 29 so I am assuming as long as I process on the 29th I am good?

    Thanks again for all the help and hope my mis-steps have helped others. All this is part of the experience and will make me more dilligent about my paper work in the future.

    Throughout the entire process I maintained a positive atittude while dealing with everyone and saved my venting/ranting for here. I renewed my attitude and faith in Mexico after a great day of surfing and beer drinking in Sayulita with some transplants from Guad. Another offer for a free place to crash when I return and sympathetic ears for my oversight in the import process.

    Hey Jimmy, John D did the "Jimmy Ride...slight return" today. Slight variation of the original because he rides the damn wheels off that Kawasaki Super Sherpa of his. I thought we'd be going slow because it's only a carbuereted 250cc.
    It was like riding with my shadow. Always there! :clap We did the route down the mountain via Saltillo La Fragua which we missed when you did it, because of the fog and crap weather that time.

    John D is a great guy to ride with, and if anyone is thinking twice about sponsoring him a little, pony up, he's a helluva rider and real fun to spend a day with. Hands down, he is the happiest person I have ever met from Nebraska! ha,ha! I noticed a few signatures on the tank, appears he's met more than a few riders on here. 9 degrees centigrade in Coatepec, froze my arse off heading in, but it warmed up to 30 c on the way in from Orizaba to Veracruz, John headed off for Ciudad Mendoza after we took the old/new Cumbres route and he was heading for Oaxaca via Acultzingo and the lane changing fun and games on the way back up to the altiplano. The Mystery Rider, Craneguy, and Doug were sorely missed, today. And by the way, Craneguy, that road that was torn up in that small mountain town when you got the V-Strom on a nice near verticle angle, is still under construction, but this time John hopped the curb and zipped up the road and left me with a smile and looking for an alternate route, couldn't get the clearance over the curb but it wasn't for trying.

    Edit: I'm an idiot... It's 11101

    What's that spell in binary? :)

    How long have you been sitting in front of the computer, finger poised over the "submit reply" button, in order to have the honor? It's a shame it didn't happen yesterday! (11/11)
