    Try the white (clear) Tequila.

    I think there are Mexican whiskeys but I'm dubious. Plenty of US brands available

    Try cane liquor "aguardiente" and if you cant take two fingers of it straight either go for the double distilled and pay a little more or be a pussy and reach for the Sprite bottle.

    Xalapa bypass opened last Wednesday, I had the pleasure of riding it yesterday from north to south.
    From Perote to my garage in 1 hour and 15 mins flat with Sunday traffic through Cardel, the cuotas, and Veracruz/Boca Del Rio. Cuts the time from what was up to 2 and a half hours on a Sunday. Take your cameras, it parallels the canyon most of the way and the panoramic views are simply incredible.

    Bob Loblaw, we need to talk, I found something yesterday you are going to really enjoy, you'll see it and believe it when you swing through! Yes, it is that good.:clap I am still buzzing from it 18 hours later! No pics on this one, no paperazzi, invitation only.:deal I know Julio is going to enjoy this one too, fresh trout along the way.:freaky

    Rocky Mountain Oyster, since you might be coming through first, PM me and we'll see if we can meet up so I can use you as a guinea pig...sorry...neutral third party test rider.:evil Unless Craneguy and/or the Mystery Rider beats you to it. Schizz, if you are heading south, let me know.

    Not even close!
    This one leaves an indelible imprint on your brain and the seat of your bike.:clap
    Nice to see the Texas boys have their spider sense tingling a little. If you liked Teziutlan to Tlapacoyan, you are going to find this, perhaps we should say, "stimulating"?

    No it shouldn't. It may be important if the names aren't the same. Its really better when all documents agree. There is less potential for questions that way.

    Ace has it right. If you have Edward George Smith on one and Ed Smith on the other you may need to pull out other ID. If your registration is the same as your Passport you will be OK unless the agent wants to impress the Mexican prez and be a hard ass. In that case, find a bi-lingual speaker to explain that Ed and Edward are the same name.
