    Ah, the memories... I did a trip on a KLR about 10 years ago that included more ruins than I can count. Calakmul had among them...

    Yes, I still find good info there. Do you have a thread going on your current Croatia ride?

    Cal, since your in the area, I strongly suggest heading for Pluzine, Montenegro and grab the P14 road into Durmitor Nat'l Park, stunning road and park. I'll be passing through there again in about 2 weeks on my way to Turkey.

    Go! The narrow road through the jungle is memorable. The ruins are huge, and the pyramids worth climbing. The size and complexity of the community is very evident. I'm biased though, as I'm fascinated by the ancient cultures in all of Central and South America. We were there early in the morning, and only one other party was there at the time. We spent the night prior to our visit in a hospedaje near the road to the ruins.

    Another good day on the bikes. All autopista but we did catch a short dirt section........on the Anillo Periférico in CDMX. Ha!

    Arrived at the Airbnb in Polanco around 5:30pm. Nice place. Walked down to the bar on the corner for some eats and Mexican craft brew. Watching UNAM get schooled by America as I post this.

    Mexican craft beer being sold in a 7-11 in Polanco. Maybe there’s still some hope for Mexico

    @SkizzMan is in his zen state as we prepared to clutch out for Mexico. So far we have knocked out over a thousand miles crossing through some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever seen.

    Also of note, JD has the border crossing dialed in. I think we spent a total of 20 minutes getting the TVIP and assorted paperwork in order.

    And the canyon road coming into Mexico City is epic!

    Las Palmas our humble abode in Matehuala, San Luis Potosi, Mexico. It was reminiscent of a bygone era when people traveled by car.

    Appreciated having our bikes secured with a carport next to our room.[​IMG]

    Sounds personal and not random violence. I try very hard not to piss bad people off.
