Let's try that one
If Salma or Mayte carried that sign, there'd be a line to Dolores Hidalgo
We had to leave you there, nobody showed up to pay the ransom!!!!
The modus operandi has now been changed and appearances altered.:eek1
That's a nice place, the hotel in Puente Nacional, the entire complex is bike friendly, the owner's son manages it and has built a nice little motocross track next door with proper pit facilities and buildings, very inexpensive and good food and liquids. Family run operations in Mexico usually give you much more value for your peso. The owner's family speak English and are very accommodating people who take their guests seriously and treat them well.
Can't beat that!
Rockymountainoyster........ I second that Zihua hotel suggestion
made by Schizzman ��
Posada Casandoho will be good. It does not have suites but you can rent
several rooms and it will be SWEET �� and cost less in total than the fancier
digs along the waterfront.friendly owners will gladly help you .
Highway Mex 199 is highly recommended . Some fantastic scenery
and lots of curves and there are plenty of folks along the way
Fuel up before going in an start early and you will have a great ride.
Go from cool upland pine forest mountains to lush green tropical
A VERY nice place it was. If you are going to be held against your will, that would be the place! And, you get to it by taking some great roads.
It is places like that, run by the owner's we met, that make you want to get everyone you meet to stay there to support them.
The (ex) inmate who posted here in the IMS thread a few pages back (and elsewhere on ADV, according to what I found in Head Explody) advertising consulting-for-fee advice on travel south of the border has been smacked with the ban hammer.
Reason: Couldn't contain himself in Vendors
I'm not sure if the ban hammer hit him permanently or not. Working another issue I found his other out-of-vendors threads after they were clipped to Head Explody.
I know nothing of him personally, although I believe he lives in Austin.
My only interaction was with the mods directly, to get his vendor thread out of IMS.
Edit: I think he's banned permanently. I don't think inmates are labeled "banned" unless the vacation is permanent. I could be wrong.
Watch out for this gang:
They held a piece of string across the road and wouldn't let me pass until I bought oranges from them.
This is the heart of Zapatista country, and there were a couple of military checks. This road had a reputation for robberies, but I think between the Zapatistas and the military, they have been chased off. I highly recommend Agua Azul, between Palenque and Ocosingo if you have time for a swim.
$40 bucks an hour for advice about Mexico?
I'm in the wrong line of work!:eek1
Hell, we are ALL in the wrong line of work!
$40 bucks an hour? That's like a $1,000 bucks to a KLR rider! Or 5% of the cost of a Touratech farkle for a GS1200 owner! 3% of the average bill for a KTM owner. Or a week in El Salvador for J. Downs and the SuperSuperSherpaSherpa!
Or 2 shots of single malt and a cigar at The Seal Club! Or steak breakfast for 8 at the lena in Cerro Gordo!
Reminds me of the old line from a Colorado ski instructor, "Bend your knees, that will be $100, please".
Now here is something to think about.
If the guy sells his insight into Mex riding and things go south (no pun intended but it worked out), can the person then take legal action against the guy who provided the info that was purchased? Seems like the idea that there is some financial transaction happening might open some pitfalls.
I mean, the same thing cost this thread a sticky!
That was something I still can't figure out. I mean, if you get lost in the Sahara and join a Tuareg tribe and paint your skin blue, are you going to take legal action against Chris Scot? I doubt it!
What are we all going to do, begin a class action suit against Ted Simon?
We have to keep this quiet or the Mystery Rider is going to close The Seal Club! Then nobody else will get a chance to see the beautiful little mug that came from Catemaco.:eek1
You're off by $200.
Cheapest "package" was $240 (for 2 hours). I could be wrong.
See the post. His post, plus my copy of his link which I captured in the quote of it in my post, were both deleted by the mod.
I know nothing of this inmate nor the services rendered.
I do know rampant will earn you a vacation. That's common knowledge, or should be.
$240, that's like the t-shirt budget for a Harley rider on a day trip to Key West!
That's 5 good 10 hour day rides down here with tolls, food, and gas.
But no t-shirts.
240! That's an hour of therapy for the PTSD** you develop when you know you really want a Beemer but you settle for a V-Strom!
**panties tied super dense
Only wealthy playboys and gentlemen of the world own BMW's.
I know this because BMW told me so!
And Spandau would never lie to anyone!
$240! Sjoerd's hotel budget for an entire 3 month trip in Mexico!
Bad spam will get you a vacation; but a bad piece of lettuce will get you.............
Yoquivo to Bato from two weeks ago.
Still editing my video.
lol. I don't mind at all paying for good advice but $240 as a minimum price point knocks me out. Heck. The nephews spent $400 from border to border for 7 days. And we lived pretty nice. ( I am a money sieve so I didn't do quite as well but still real cheap.)
It's a 'strom. There are no good angles.
Maybe I could work for him as an independant contractor.
Actually thinking of looking this guy up just to see what it's all about. So long as he doesn't bill me for the time, that is.
