    You guys are great. I was there for the “battle of the ride reports”.

    Both of you create amazing content.

    Absolutely enjoyed the entire RR and that wrap was perfect @FinTec. Sort of a bummer it had to end with a bum wrist and bombing back to the border, but as you said, it was a Cuba trip, not a MX trip.

    If you ever make your way to the PNW and need a place to crash, work on MO, grab a whisky, let me know.

    Look forward to your next RR and Mexico adventure man, was a great read with awesome content.

    Great ride report Fin. Really enjoyed the interview with Captain Ludwig. Curious as to what pants you were wearing. Are they motorcycle specific pants?

    Awesome report Fin, looking forward to your next adventure.

    When someone asks "how much did it cost", tell them 3 months of salary.

    Went to Arapahoe Basin yesterday as I just needed to feel some cool dry weather, Colorado style. Conditions are actually pretty darn good.

    The pants are Klim "Outriders" found HERE. Yep, they are specific for motorcycle. Really they feel and look like my current Carhart's but can take hip and knee pads.

    Nice, I like that one as well.

    Not the same look without your gunslinger pouch :nah

    Must have felt great to be in the snow again.

    I know we have all been waiting for this one. Here is my interview with JamieZ while we were both in Cuba in the town of Hulguín.

    Fantastic!

    Jamie didn’t sound at all how I imagined. He sounded a lot - - cooler. Your earlier comment about him playing up the Kevin Costner thing is even more believable now.

    Well done, Fintec.

    Fantastic! JamieZ, you just being you is what we are all looking for. Seriously, we've all seen bs propaganda on these topics, but your matter or fact experiences are priceless. You are articulate and informative. Can't ask for more.

    Fin,

    Welcome back home!

    Great interview with Jamie.
    Both of you make it look so easy ............... and I know that it's not.

    I was wondering if you ever interviewed Animo, and I just missed it?
    He seems like such an interesting and generous character that it makes people want to know more about him.
    And what a great ambassador he is for the riding & traveling community! :thumb

    Gotta chime in and thank you for an awesome RR.

    Having left Cuba at age 4 and growing up hearing all about it from family and friends you’ve clarified so much that I’ve wondered about. You and Jaime have given me so much inspiration that I’m most definitely considering a similar trip if/when possible.

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the hell out of this RR, thx again.
