They had a "No Picture" sign at the museum, so I did not take any pictures, but I looked at when I was there four years ago and we took pictures in the museum on that trip. I guess they changed their rules.
Really nice pics, Donnie !
Great pics Donnie!
And thanks for all the site info.
Keep on ridin' happy!
Glad ya'll are having a good time.
We rode from Palenque to Merida today. Going to visit Johana, who I met in El Salvador a couple years ago. She has married a man from Merida and relocated.
We stopped at a road side diner for some of the best tacos I have ever had! These things had three times the meat and filling as you normally get! A group of about five kids were walking circles around and around the moto checking it out as we ate. I walked over and told them I would let them sit on it after I finished breakfast. here is three of them:
Mostly just flat riding. Rode along side the Gulf of Mexico for a while. We are in the Historic El Centro of the city. It seems pretty nice!
The moto turned over 10,000 miles today. That is over 4,500 miles in less than four weeks, but the pace is slowing drastically.
The new White KTM is looking good. Looking forward to your high mileage feedback on the 990.
Nice Palenque photos. Did you happen to see Ester?
Thanks for taking us along. Great photos and write up. Ride safe.
Glad to have you along!
I hope this one gets to see high mileage!
She was not there. It was wet most of the day, I don't think her merchandise would have fared well in the environment. The vendors that were there were selling things that would not be damaged by moisture.
She was in DF when Donnie hit Palenque
Plus, she's getting married soon, and her days selling artesanias at Palenque may be coming to an end. Remains to be seen though.
Great ride so far! Thanks for taking us along. Your report on Palenque really has me excited to get down there.
How would you compare the KTM to the BMW GS since you have had both?
Don't miss Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan and the world's largest pyramid at Puebla.
The KTM has waaay better suspension! It has more of a agile, dirt bike feel to it. It weighs less and is much better for the Topes, pot holes and poor road conditions. Ana likes it better than the BMW. While I would have bought a different moto at an exceptional price when looking for this one, there was no question as to what I really wanted! This things puts a smile on my face that no other moto has ever matched! I guess I have drank the orange koolaid. However, I would not begin to suggest that KTMs, at this point, have the reliability and durability of the BMWs. But, I intend to find out!
The more I ride, especially south of the border, I drift toward the believe that "lighter is better". If I were touring solo, I would be on a single cylinder 650. I really like the Husqvarna TR650 Terra. Assuming I upgrade to a KTM 1190 in the future, my big decision will be whether to go with the Standard/19" front wheel or the R with the taller suspension and the 21" front wheel! :huh
I went out walking a couple of time during the morning and midday.
I had a couple tortas and coffee.
