    Woohoo! I am in for this trip at the beginning! I read throught your last trip, and really enjoyed hearing about all of the people you met. Have fun, enjoy yourself, and stay safe. I will be keeping tabs on you. BTW I love that you are taking the BMW down there with you. It looks like it could be my GS's twin.

    I have changed the tires on the moto. It is getting close to departure time! I have also cleaned the air filter and all the other PM stuff. This will be the first extended trip on this moto since the Yellowknife/Inuvik/Dead Horse ride last year. I still have a few things left to do!

    I'll pack some Indio in the tail box. :freaky

    Figure we'll cross late Sunday or early Monday so no worries. It'll take all day Sunday to make the border by county roads. Super-slabbing is always an option. I hear IH-35 is beautiful this time of year. :puke1

    The moto is loaded except for the laptop. I will take a quick 90 mile ride over to see my father before leaving, stopping by the cemetery in route. The I will return home have lunch and take care of a little banking business. This afternoon I will ride south to Greenville, MS and stay the night with Betty and Danny, leaving from there Friday morning to visit with Tracy and Madison in Dallas, TX. Schizzman and I will meet up Sunday morning and head to Mexico! :clap

    BTW, this picture was taken a few minutes ago! My cousin thought he saw something wrong with the first photo I posted. He saw that the grass was brown! It should have been, that picture was taken in 2010 when Sheryl and I were leaving on our first Mexico trip. I was too lazy to take a new picture the other day. I think the moto was cleaner back then! :eek1 That is probably because it has not been washed since the first picture was taken! :rofl

    Hey Billy! If you look at the bottom left of the picture, you can see some green grass! :D
