    Spent yesterday with John Dobie riding the Espinazo del Diablo Mazatlán - El Salto where John continued to Torreón and I slabbed it back to MAZ on the cuota. Enjoyed a fine day both on and off the bikes. I’ve never seen a rider push the Heidi K60 Scout tires as hard as John did. Impressive. 2A3B40E8-DD26-49E3-9488-E96B71B8EDF6.jpeg 1888A8CD-A153-4944-AEC6-D5BB11718E40.jpeg 049C382F-4E31-4F00-A61A-AFB8C37DC466.jpeg

    If you know where to look you can see Puente Baluarte

    That’s as close to that hole as I was going to park

    What remains of last year’s “derrumbe” that shut down the Espinazo for a time. As with the Memorial Rock in Colorado the road was diverted around the “biggun”.

    LOL!

    Truth is I really suck at keeping track/count of most aspects of my wanderings. Hence my use of the term ‘wanderings’.

    When it comes to taking pix my basic rule is to yield to any significant impulse to capture the image. And yet I still leave behind some good stuff.

    Glad you’re enjoying the RR.

    Haven’t seen you post for a while. Is everything ok? If you are in Iguala and have fallen in love with a wonderful lady, I can understand, just need to know that everything is ok. Need an update.

    Clutching out next week for Guanajuato to complete the Permanent Resident visa process. Finished installing the new SEACOM luggage deck and the panniers and top box from the crashed GSA today. Very pleased with the convertibility of the SEACOM product along with fit and finish. The pillion mounts normally through CNC’d holes in the deck and removing four bolts clears off the top box and mount for a nice flat deck with tie-down slots.

    Pic from SEACOM FB page 72871E05-BBB4-4D8F-8901-C84EC1A982B7.jpeg 3FD18075-318F-43AF-BBB1-1A96FF3B7CD2.jpeg D2345068-46C5-4375-A01C-A7F4873283C7.jpeg 7D17364F-FBD9-4542-8C63-61809987BC9B.jpeg

    The bike looks eerily familiar now 434765D3-CAA8-49B7-864C-7B3672C42F49.jpeg

    Love the pics, they are feeding my long growing desire to see Mexico. Also jealous as all get out that you can get into Mexico when I have not been able to get out of Canada into the US to see family and get back in over a year!:(

    Keep the pics coming!
