    Doug's carbed cruiser was fine at near 11,000ft over the pass from Acocomola to Saltillo Lafragua, he should be ok.
    The Mystery Rider is still shopping and I'll be working.
    Nice elevation for the ride!

    Since Viagra reportedly only works for about 10% of the men who admit to using it and some percentage of that group are lying I would guess that the ingredient to which the good Colonel refers is a hefty portion of good ole Texas buuulsheut. But once again I digress from the ever critical safety issues... bad spelling seems to be a particularly hazardous activity here and opens one to deep ridicule.

    Vados: Washed out low spots in the road that turn to sand washes or gravel beds when the rains turn the low spots to creeks or rivers, depending on how much rain floods through. No problema if the water's not running too deeply or too quickly. Get your buddy to ride in and test those if you don't like him much. And have your camera ready.:D

    My only strict "area rule" is I avoid Mex 2 along it's length, day or night. That's just personal, others may ride it like the wind, I have no idea.

    Well, we did not make Montemorelos but we did make it off that mountain. Holy Shit, Batman. We are not very smart. Made Zaragoza at 7:04. Still light but barely. Idiots. Idiots that can't tell time or read a map.

    Mexico is certainly not safe for idiots.

    Note to self. Bring one sane person on every trip.

    Edit: Terrapinneck said that he had decided that "when" he crashed on the mountain he was just gonna light his bike on fire. hey. He had a plan. Maybe not a great plan...but a plan.

    But...
    my new used Garmin Zumo altimeter is working great. So glad I brought it. No pics of today but I will check with the boys.

    Pics don't do it justice and the little secondary road is much fun.

    Oh. In case y'all were wondering, this is the svelte, lithe, nimble weapon I am sporting for mountain dualsport riding. I swear. Idiot. [​IMG]
