Day 3 - San Isidro to Lake Huites Lodge

In the morning there was enough light to see some of the mural work that the local artists had put into our cabin. My roomie Pat took this photo...



The first stop was in San Pedro, the scene of the previous night's adventure to get fuel for all the bikes...



Scott had done some work on the 530 KTM but we didn't have enough oil to get all the water out so Scott had to put the 530 back on the truck for the day. It was then back into the mountains for some more switchbacks, climbs and decents on the dirt roads of Mexico. We stopped at an overlook to check out the vistas and gather the group back together...






Chris' 990 KTM rear brake pedal was going soft the previous day and now the rear brake was completely gone. My suspicions were that the rear brake got boiled from trying to haul down such a big bike on the long decents we were doing...




Here's Paolo smiling for the camera...



One of the switchbacks with a great view of the valley below...





It was time to stop for lunch and for our mascot, Dolly the Wonder Pup to take a bio-break...



The last of the group rolling into lunch...



It was mid-afternoon when we reached the end of the road and waited for the ferry to take the bikes and support truck over to the far shore of Lake Huites...



We managed to load all the bikes, the support truck and a truck load of goats in one go...



Barak took the above photo and this photo of your truly enjoying the cruise across the lake...



Once over the the other side there was a great view of the lake from the road...



As we rolled into the Lake Huites Lodge, the staff greeted us with a tray of margaritas to wash the trail dust down...



Lake Huites is well known for its Black Bass fishing and dinner that night featured a great fish feed. We finished the night off with margaritas on the patio watching the sunset...



Here are the stats on the day...
