    I KNEW I should have taken the lead more. :cry

    Just get a 2010 GS and forget about all this whining. Then we'll try the E. de D. again. :evil

    That should complete your reprogramming.

    You know I love you, man! Thanks again for making the Puente Baluarte happen for me. Was a very special day that I had given up on.

    My colleagues at work seem to think I have a mistress down there. Well, I guess I do. She is México.

    Hey, Mike!

    I was the guy that got lost from Lance and Steve and hung at the motox hotel with y'all. Thanks for a fun ride. Mexico was a blast!! (and safe, duh!). Beautiful country, great roads! we made it all the way down to Guatemala and then to the Pacific Coast. That place was so beautiful, one of the group is still there :lol3

    I am back in SoCal. Dreaming of another trip south!

    My last full day in Mexico, crossing into Belize tomorrow. My rear K60 is shot and I have a new one waiting for me in Guatamala. Antigua calls.

    I'd like to thank you guys for helping make my 2 months in Mexico enjoyable and trouble-free. In particular, those great guys I've met, or have hosted me or helped in some way - Turkeycreek, SR, MikeMike, Animo, Bato, Andy, Jimmex, Ken and Carol Duvall. Thanks guys.

    But most of all, the countless Mexicans who've laughed with me (and probably, at me - my fault for not knowing enough spanish) and for consistently being kind, helpful and honest. For me, Mexico has been perfectly safe... anyone thinking about coming down, don't think twice (but do your homework first).

    I'll be checking in here once in a while to make sure everything's still safe!

    Here's my 8000 miles or so around Mexico. More detailed map here;

    And some pics from the ride with Animo yesterday to Parque Natural Ria Lagartos, at the tip of Yucatan.

    Beware.

    Mexico is a harsh mistress.

    Yes, that was us! About 20 miles down the road I remembered you were in the area. I should have stopped, it would have been good to see you again. It's been a while since I saw you in Hot Springs.

    On another note, anybody know a good bike mechanic in Tula de Allende?

    Hey Jimmex, looks like you are somehow deleting the closing tag when you quote, looks like this: [/QUOTE]. Put that at the end and the quote should be displayed nice and neat.

    So, this MotoGP thing. I suspect all you rich dudes are buying something other than General Admission tickets, are you?
