Dear Falang,

Thanks so much for taking the time to post up this ride report. It brings back such great memories. There is nothing better than the sound of an airhead motor humming across the Mexican desert.

Thirty years goes by in a flash. Back in the previous century I had those same Krauser bags. I knew it was time to head north in Guatemala when the right bag popped open going over a speed bump. I wondered why all the locals were waving their hands wildly and yelling as I rode by. I thought it was because they thought I was a celebrity until I looked in my rearview mirror many miles later and saw the lid flapping in the breeze. Lost my spare parts and feeler gauges along with some crackers and underwear. Yikes! Had to adjust my valves with a folded peso note on the way home. I think it was a folded peso note for intake and three thicknesses for exhaust.

Great stuff amigo. I give this report 5 stars. Keep up the good work. Hope to see you down the road in SEA some day.

Kindest regards,
John Downs
