Hola A & E, I've been in your RR as well, great pictures

Hope by now you got good news from the dealership about your bike ; back in Alaska Gary mentioned having met you guys.
We are in the San Diego area on the beach right now, but sooner or later we have to get going further south, to Baja .
Let me know if you are coming this way , would be great to meet you guys.

Good luck with your bike !!!

Life is a beach

Having sushi and Sake with Crashmaster







Cruising on 101 looking for icecream






Watching other crazy people doing crazy stuff










Meditating over tough decisions : What to cook for dinner after watching an other gorgeous sunset

BRILLIANT!

I see you're heading back! Do you think it might even become "Guatemale to Alaska and back and then a bit further south too to Ushuaia"???

I hope so! Because down here is the business.

(Also, I'm trying to be helpful not an asswipe here, but call me an asswipe if you like, only "another" is all one word. My Spanish is crap and is full of errors as peopel don't tell me when it's wrong...which is always....which is probably why they don't tell me!) Happy return trip...!

That's easy, rice and vegetables! or pasta and vegetables! Or, if you're a bit full, just vegetables! Or, if you've got a bit of cash, just biscuits!

Good to hear from you ! Let's put it this way, we are not on our way back, just on the way south for the moment

Thx for telling me about my spelling error , I appreciate it . If more people would tell me , my english would be better

Ride safe !

Hey guys! We just crossed 2 days ago in your country :) So far Guatemala is great! We are in Flores and thinking to head South a little bit tomorrow! But our progress in the last part of Mexico and now in Guatemala somehow slowed down a lot (not because of bad things but because we are just doing less riding and more of non-riding stuff). I think soon we will match your speed

Hope all is well!

Hola amigos, I was told yesterday already that you are in the northern part of my territory and that your spare parts are ordered
It's a small country and you can't hide there from your friends
Glad you made it there and that you like it . Once you meet my friend Richard ,aka Richsuz, you will like it even more .
Slowing down is the best you can do Ride less and see more
If you match my speed , you will still be in Guatemala by the time we will get there. There is so much to see there
Send me a PM if you need a place to stay in Guatemala City, I might be able to help out.

Ride safe and post some pictures !

So, Im on the fat boy program and I've lost around 30 pounds.

But........Julio is cooking. How can you turn that down? And, he is NOT happy about me trying to be healthy......




Probably should not have drank all that wine tonight?

He needs to change the title of the RR to, "Cooking from Guatemala to Alaska....and back." jajaja!

I'm trying to do miracles to prepare a diet dinner that still tastes OK for my all of a sudden weightconsious friend and then he has 4 bottles of wine with it
