    Amigos, I took this picture in Pochutla, Oaxaca last week just after paying 2 pesos at the PEMEX to use the bathroom. I cracked up and immediately remembered this thread. Awesome.

    Is the translation something like: Being low class feels cool?

    You're very very close. "Being 'ghetto' is cool" It's something something that someone who is comfortable poking fun at himself or his bike would say. Goes good with an old, beat up bike, as in the photo example.

    In an inverse sense, Naco can also be used to describe someone who is trying to look or act like someone they're not, someone trying to be "cool" or someone who has a lot of money.

    For my poor english knowledge I dare to say that

    NACO = REDNECK = HILLBILLY = WHITE TRASH or sort of that.....

    and to be honest, some times we all people do things that put us on the category....:lol3



    hey !!! wait for my day tripping report next week. Tomorrow we are heading to Monterrey mountains, ride around Laguna de Sanchez, Los Lirios, Monterreal, Mesa de las Tablas, and camping on the mountain, smoke cigars, etc.
