    There is no letter "K" in the spanish alphabet. All the words that have this letter are foreign words. "Kilo" etc.

    Actually this is incorrect. K does exist in Spanish Alphabet.

    Not to dump on your great ride report, but my understanding is all words with K in them were originally foreign words. OK is english.

    Business owners learned that the letter K, being odd, would grab extra attention even if a similar word existed in spanish without the K. So you see "vulkan" for tire repair services, and etc...

    Es verdad?

    This was nice, I checked KTM's Mexico Product Line Up and it is not included. I should have gotten closer and looked for a name on the motor.

    Do any of y'all know if this is a real KTM?

    We did not leave Puebla till 12:00. It was sprinkling and overcast all day. I never dropped the sun screen on my helmet. We stopped at Teposcolula, Oaxaca for the night. Here is some info from Wikipedia:

    San Juan Teposcolula is a town and municipality in the State of Oaxaca, Mexico, often known simply as Teposcolula. The name Teposcolula means “next to the twist in copper”.

    The town is 2,300 meters above sea level. Long ago it was known as San Juan Itnuyana. The current town was founded in 1561. The main economic activities are logging and the production of mescal.<sup id="cite_ref-EncMuc_1-1" class="reference">[1]</sup>
    The town has the convent complex of San Pedro y San Pablo (Saints Peter and Paul). Mexico Desconocido, a magazine dedicated to tourism in the lesser-known areas of Mexico, says that it has an incredible collection of architecture and sculpture, as well as a very large open-air Renaissance-style chapel that is one of the most beautiful in Mexico

    As of 2005, the municipality had 349 households with a total population of 1,344 of whom three spoke an indigenous language.

    It was sprinkling here a bit more than the previous part of the day. This town seems like it is sitting in the bottom of a bowl, surrounded by mountains.
