Pretty nice area. Too bad it is a bit hot for me to ride now. Not too mention that Michoacan and Guerrero are really inconveniently positioned for what my original ride plan was. I realize that I could stay on the main roads and probably ride through no problem. I also realize that statistically I could ride the back roads and the odds are still in my favor. But my risk assessment tells me I will avoid the area entirely. I am one of the ignorant Gringo's that other Gringos have been bashing on in this thread and I know it. I certainly hope that Harry Devert is alright. I know he may have been riding in a hot area. And I am a realist about people and the world in general. Yet I still lament that there are places in this world, regardless of geographic locale, that so much caution must be used by a simple traveller.
