Thumb Reynosa TAM to Montemorelos NL

After the first two little incidents, we continued and arrived to China NL, we had dinner (expensive) for the content, but hungry we were, happy we ended.

Continued and right crossing one of the several speed bumps at city General Teran NL, I hear a loud noise in my bike and immediately feel my rear tire getting jam and locked.
Luckly I was very slow due the speed bump. Then check on my passenger (my 12 yr old son) and stop the bike.

It happens that my poor tiein skill, caused to drop my sleeping bag and all the slings ended up in the rear sproket chain. tearing apart the chain guard. Thanks god that was all.
It was near midnight and several car and police offices stoped by as they passed to see if any help was needed.
Nice people at General Teran trying to help.
Later we got to MONTEMORELOS to spend the night there as planned.

Here is the next morning pics getting the bikes ready and Huicho fixing my bikes left turn signal (broken last night)
