    Hola trespalacios,

    What a fun childhood you had! This place is heaven on earth. 95º with a stiff off shore breeze cooling things off. Honda70 semi-automatic was what I first rode as a teenager. Two up you were dogging it, I guarantee. Those are some steep hills to ride over with a load.

    Thanks to you and SS in Vzla and others for recommending this place. It is awesome!

    Muchas gracias amigo,
    Juan Taganga

    Hi midlifecry,

    So glad to have you along for the memories. I will be heading to Tayrona as soon as I can tear myself away from Tagonga. It's awfully nice here. It is the off season I think, so I am the only one here in the hostel. Here is my office for the afternoon:

    and the hammocks on the terrace overlooking the bay for hanging out in if you care to:

    Get back down here would you?
    Colombia is calling.

    Saludos,

    Hola Mario,

    I am just doing the research and exploring for your next ride. South America is calling. It's not that far from San Salvador to Colombia. I can see you and Fernanda down here tearing around the mountains and beaches.

    Abrazos amigo,
    Juanito

    Hola Mario,

    Poland looks fabulous in the winter. Of course, I'd have to put studs on the Sherpa. Maybe summer would be a better time to visit.

    The only Polish folks I've had the pleasure of meeting on this trip have been my kind of people. I'm talking to you Tomski and bro from Oklahoma. I'm going to have to visit the fatherland soon. Or motherland as the case may be.

    Saludos,
    Juan Polski

    Hi DeeJay Rider,

    So glad to have you along. Self censoring doesn't seem to be my forte. I will continue reporting back what I find on the roads less traveled.

    Muchas gracias amigo,

    Hi Gene,

    Thanks so much! Really appreciate your kindness. Glad to see you are getting back into riding with your son. What fun! You are a fortunate man.

    I would appreciate it if you could buy a weestrom pronto and get down here. The riding is epic and the people are friendly.

    Kindest regards,
    Juan Viajero

    I think "objectifying" is the word for this. "Degrading" occurs only when women agree to playing the game.

    MG,

    You're so naughty. Now look what you've done.

    I am just guessing you have a problem with authority.

    I like you and I don't even know you.

    JD,

    You dog! Now get back to work. I've been reading the SOG saga and you've been having way too much fun south of the border lately. Look forward to spending more time in Tejas. You boys know how to have fun!

    Adios amigo,
