Now that I have already finished to install the 685 kit on my KLR, and she had heard me say that is really smooth and faster, now she wants soon another ride to confirm that!!

Hey Arte i been around that Elias Calles Dam too, and around there like 10-15 km away is a place called "Boca de Tunel" is marked on a map that you showed us, i dont know the elevation of that place but is a W H O L E different ecosystem, is not like semi-arid dried-thorn bushes, is not that dusty in fact you ride on a big pinkish rock terrain; and they have some tracks for mountain bikes, this poleas things from one mount to another in few words a very eco-turistic place. When you drive around there you will fall in love,

Boca de Tunel is around those mountains in the back



if you go one day take travel over there, it has became my favorite spot in aguascalientes

By the way, se le extraña en el foro touareg hermano!

on the way back, the weather started to cool down, and her jacket is mesh fabric, so while riding I asked few times if she was cold, she said no always.

I knew she was't too warm but I guessed she did not wanted to look like she did not liked the ride.

I stoped at and she put other light jacket inside, then she said... well I was a little cold.

so I explained her that we can do as many stops as needed, since the objective is to ride comfortable to enjoy. She got it.... Just hope that next ride she dont pull me over for hair combing or some fingernail make up...

LOL!! Doesn't sound like she'll ever be one so prissy as that, but even if she was she is I doubt she'll ask her papa to pull over for it. She seems to like riding, which I think is awesome.

Arturo, you are amazing!

Oh Arturo,

I was filled with joy seeing the huge smile on Paloma's face throughout your entire wonderful ride report...



These moments are lifetime memories that help build those little angels' love of life. What a gift you are giving your sweet girl. You have inspired me to get my daughter out there. She's already eyeing the pink riding gear.

My best to you and Paloma. Hopefully, one day I'll be able to come visit the two of you on my DRZ.

My best,
Nicole

Many thanks Nicole,


Lets hope that in a near future the girls can meet in a ride.

Probably next year we will be again visiting relatives at California (LA and San Jose)

saludos

Arturo

Nope, but this PUEBLO MAGICO is on the list next time.

Did you know that those tunnels where built back in XVIII Century to filter and conduct the water and avoid floodings on the church,
but since then were forgotten and they were re-discovered until 2001 !!

Yeah the tour is real neat. Its interesting to go down there and see some of the tunnels that are still filled with water, it is crystal clear. The road there is real nice but be careful with loose gravel.

The tour guide told us that they are always discovering new tunnels under the city and that they are planning to open more tunnels in the next few years. Ill have to go back and visit when they have more tunnels open.
