    Those bridge crossing pics are great. If it were me I’m pretty sure my balls would have been somewhere in the vicinity of my tonsils

    it was all good to this point, unfortunately about 30 kms from here we stopped by the side of the road waiting for JC and Maxito was run over by some f.....drunk driver on a pick up truck that went off the road. He is doing fine now, but with a broken leg and had to go through an operation to bring all bones back to place. The drunk driver is in prison and had triple the admitted alcohol in his alcoholtest.
    Get well soon Maxito !!!!!!

    Well, i just now remembered my password. I did make it in March . However wrecked my first day there between San Salvador and El Tunco.
    Kinda got scratched up and pulled all muscles/tendons in my knee and a lil concussion. Back riding again now and hopefully will return in July.

    We rode from San Salvador to Atiquizaya-San Lorenzo-Rio Paz (blind border crossing to Guatemala)-Comapa-Jutiapa-Ayarza-Miramundo-Tatasirire-Jalapa the first day.
    We met a gas station
    Reynaldo and La Guara(cool fender art)

    We got to first river, Mario Jr went first (being a lighter bike)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    pick up crew had no problems crossing it on 4H

    [​IMG]

    Reynaldo suggested and we agreed on getting in the river to help cross one by one

    La Guara's first


    [​IMG]

    Mark's Caponord next

    [​IMG]

    It was Reynaldos turn, but he noticed he had a flat rear tire

    [​IMG]

    It was a fence clamp that got it. This guy came by with his truck and offered to help so we used his lighter socket and he put on some mariachi music while we were at it

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile Fernandita had some fun

    [​IMG]

    Fernanda and a local fisherman

    I miss all you guys I can drive or ride in the chase 4x4 truck I will be walking in about a week more, I am walking a little now. I am only going to do dual-sport adventures from now on, I thank all you guys for the support after living here I have learned more and more about who is the real motorcycle people and who are the fake ones and the rich biker type dick heads that do not give a shit about you. I have found out who are my real friends from EL SALVADOR and I will never froget the support you have all giving me living so far from home, THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

    GRINGO "no more" LOCO.




    I am selling all my bikes and I will start over again another day, till then I will be gone fishing.
