After a wonderful evening with my new-found friends in Monterrey, they all insisted on meeting up with me and buying me breakfast the following morning. What a FANTASTIC welcome to Mexico! Then it was off to the cloud-forest nature-lover’s paradise of Gomez Farias. But half-way there, just after crossing the Tropic of Cancer, a biker gang flagged me down! Not sure what I was getting into, I raised my helmet and gave them my biggest smile and friendliest “Hola amigos”!!! Luckily, the reason for stopping me (apart from their curiosity about this gringo riding solo across the remote mountain) was because one of them had a flat tire and no way to inflate it. I used my air compressor to get him back up and running in no time…after tons of “selfies” and handshakes all around of course.
