Ooooups .... sorry
I think it was 1979 or 1980, flew to Houston, bought a IT 425, down to the Mexican Border at Nuevo Llaredo, then across the Sierra Madre to Tampico.
We had our Bikes (my friend had XT 500) , a sleeping bag, a back bag, a water bottle and a knife on the belt. Ond of course a compass and a map (1:1'500'000).
Don't know why.
We had unbelivable experiences. I could write a book about that 4 weeks.
