    Where held up here in town after a very long day to say the least.
    The rear tire on my 950 adventure basicaly came apart most likely do to the rim lock breaking.
    We where able to buy a used tire from a shop for $20 but it's in almost worse shape than the tube they gave us.
    Where on are way back to the states and have another option for a tube tomorrow here in town but was wondering if anybody here is in the area or has first hand knowledge of the area.
    Are Spanish is very bad but have seemed to make some new friends as they drove us over 70 miles to get us here.
    Mexico is awsome. :clap

    I was able to track down the owner of a bicycle moto tire shop here in town. When he gets out of church we should have a new tire and tube and hopefully be on our way if not today tomorrow.

    Thanks Mark and Spencer.
    Were sitting in Tucson right now, the trashcan tire held up to this point, traveling at 50mph is no fun but we made it here. I don't think the bike has ever seen such low speeds, (you can ask Ponch in Chihauhau who hit us for $60). Also the bike is starting to look like a KLR. Tomorrow we'll try and track down a tire for the rest of the way home. I'll have to say thou, you haven't seen Mexico until you've ridin in the back of a beat up Ranger holding on to your bike for dear life watching the hills go by.
    Uno, dos, tres (and somtimes up to cinco) was the count we yelled out until the starter engaged. Mucho diversiĆ³n.
