I will "man up"" here in the truest sense and say that riding solo in Mexico was freeing but I was also scared every day. There was not one time that I engaged the starter and headed off that I was not aware of the consequences. I drink my morning coffee out of a mug that has a picture of John Wayne on the outside. On the inside rim it says "Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway" I won't say that riding solo in Mexico for nearly five months was a courageous act but it certainly was adventurous.
