Your Daughter

As a female rider, I just LOVED reading your report.
She is a beautiful young woman and it's wonderful to see the joy and happiness on her face during the trip. I especially liked the pic of her on the back of the bike, alone.... in the big boots :-)

So... how soon until she has her own bike? I want to ride with her.

Sounds like you will need a sidecar soon...

I enjoyed your report very much, it's easy to forget there is life beyond Juarez.

The story of the statue is interesting, I had not heard of it before.

Ride safe!

thank you!

I presume that she will be riding as soon as she can be tall enough to step on the floor from a 125 cc enduro bike probably some couple years..

"The Real Mexico"

"yes, there is plenty of life down there, Mex border areas have been always a place that does not reflects at all (I mean nothing) how is the Real México."


Absolutely true!!! I have been riding in Mexico mainland - mostly the Sierra-- 5 times in past 3 years. ( every March and October) When I am there, it does not seem like the same country we read about in the news. What I have seen is beautiful countryside, with interesting culture and friendly, helpful people.
I am going again with 4 or 5 other riders in 2 weeks.
And , truly, if you only read the headlines of the USA: violence, political corruption,etc. -- would you travel there? Pick any 6 of 10 headlines and you'll see what I mean.

***So your daughter has to be 2 meters tall before she gets a bike? :-)

Meeting up with Colbycheese in Presidio and riding to Chihuahua to connect with SanSergio and the others. Look forward to meeting y'all in Creel. Not long now.

Decided to go with the TKC80 front and D606 rear this time, BTW.

At least tall enough to place the tip toes on the ground and balance the bike every time she would stop..
right now she is some 1.4 m
