Hello ADVRiders! I am originally from Guanajuato, Mexico. I'm 28 years old, and this year has had plenty of riding! I moved to Mexico City 5 years ago, right when I finished College and worked there for the same amount of time, first at the Commercial Service, part of the Department of Commerce at the U.S Embassy in Mexico City, and then switched fields to do Pharmaceutical Sales at Eli Lilly and Co. Awesome experiences, I met a ton of new people, and I made my way in one of the largest cities in the world. But you know, not everything was 'perfect'...my VStrom was parked back in Guanajuato, about 420km away from me, and my mind was constantly thinking about it. So I set my mind and body to work for up to 3 years, save money, plan a mayor trip. I've been a rider since the age of 5, but it was until I turned 20 when I started riding across Mexico on my 1999 Honda CBR600F3. So I saved my money, and March 2011 was the right month to 'quit' my job. It is November 10th and I will start writing about my story: I just finished a dream ride on my 2007 Suzuki VStrom 650 across Mexico, the U.S, and back. A total of 80 days and 13,500 miles. Previous to this trip I rode across Southern Mexico, for about 4 weeks. Please read along!
