First post on your thread. Looks like a great time, thus far!
I spent a month in GTO in the summer of 2009. Loved it. Your photos look just like mine! Sitting here in my soul-sucking corporate cubicle, I really want to go back and rent a house!
I have a friend who owned a 1990 Transalp Xl600V for 12 years. She went to a SuperHawk 996, and then to a KLR 650. She always speaks with regret about getting rid of the Transalp.; it was a part of her.
Carry on, and enjoy! Go to Queretaro, as well, if you're heading that way again.
