    Chaly, guero! That would be too provocative.

    The grito de la guerre sera...Nalgas encima del AirHawk en la amenacer!

    Damn good thing it is supposed to be warming up tomorrow! The down side is that the Mystery Rider will probably want to go in front of me through the tolls and then fake like he doesn't know me.

    I made it safely to Guadalajara without a moto, but when I got picked up by my friend, his family forced me to eat a huge bowl of posole.

    SOG,
    The only new ground this trip has been the route East off of 57 to Los Lirios and some ugly terraceria outside of Mier y Nriega. I just turned around on the latter part because it was 40 miles of 2nd gear banging around and went to Real 14. It was a good decision as I had a blast watching the Final Four with a local guy and got to practice Spanish. The route through Los Lirios was very nice but since it hasnt rained here in awhile the pavement was slippery. I hit a grapefruit sized rock on the NL 2 route from 85 to Rayones and damaged my tire and rim some. Been standing up on pegs until my legs turn to rubber then repeat; its a good workout and fun too. The cobblestones into R 14 are rougher than I remember, or it is just me.

    Ask Jimmex when he was forced to have a huge bowl of Menudo in Cuatro Ciengas he really liked it !
    Menudo is more North thing. Something, I can do ! Don't know about Pozole :lol3

    If anybody here wants to give Bato a gift ., this is what he would like
