Looks just like my fake Rolex. Mine was purchased in Wuhan, China by a friend. Self winder, not electric, looks really good and only loses about a minute per week. I wear it to piss off my brother.

Another tip, a mugger will take you down for a fake Rolex as quickly as he will for a real one so don't wear yours on your visit to Fantasyland.

Last time I called 911 here in teh states it took 21/2 hrs. to get respose! I've spent 5 of the last 8 years traveling and living in Central America and feel as safe in all those countries as I do in the USA.

But that same situation could be found in Detroit, Liberty city or Tampa Florida where I reside. And yes timing is everything. When the sun goes down evil lurks everywhere. My sister just returned from a cruise that landed in Cancun with her husband and 4 yr old son and had a blast but was told by ship personel numerous times to stay in the city and dont go anywhere without the group. She said security was thick and she never felt unsafe.
What would worry me in Mexico would be the availibility of medical care or responce time of law enforcement there. We are spoiled with our 911 system that gets immediate responce when used. There are many places state side that mimic the beautiful surroundings of Mexico without the fear of harm for no reason. Why do you think half of Mexico's people travel to the US? For safety, security and free medical care as well as a host of other freebies. I will keep exploring the treasure we have north of the border for now and maybe one day venture south to explore once they get a handle on the drug lord issue.

Had a fantastic ride today down "The Devil's Backbone" from Durango to Mazatlan. Oops I shouldn't be so effussive... I know there are much better roads in Florida



But it was REALLY REALLY dangerous - or at least the last few feet were...



You gottta watch out for those deep gutters dipshit!

Had a great time in Durango, seems like a really nice city - and have to give a big thanks to SR for his hospitality, local knowledge, and letting me mess up his garage!

Key West? Isn't that the t- shirt shop at the end of that really straight road?

Daytona has more curves than some counties in Florida.

Nice report Trevor. BTW, I'm shutting down the hotel and moving to Florida for the great riding. I'll be offering MC tours in the state as well. I have not been on the ADV all that long and I didn't do a search but your post is the first one I've read where the word "effusive" was used. As an English Major, I salute you.

Keep the updates coming.

Mexico. Just go...!!

I've been going to MX since 1992. Driving through day and night to Aquismon, SLP. I've had to pay a few bribes...and didn't mind..a ticket or two...had some firecrackers thrown my way...For the most part I have enjoyed every moment of the trips down south...I haven't been killed, beheaded, abducted, robbed, or accosted. Mostly I've been blessed. Thank you Mexico. Effusive !!

C'mon, Larry. First you'd have to trim the pink lace off your panties before you'd even think about going near that gate. And you know I'm right, don't you?

Now go open another light beer and immerse yourself in some Ride Report about men riding motorcycles in exotic places. You can still dream, can't you?

Planning on the Keys this summer.

The ride down US 1 is one of those things that people either love or hate. I guess it just depends on the level of salt water in your soul and I have to say that most of my rides en Mexico have been to beachy and tropical places like Mazatlan, and Tampico, and the Playa Bagdad.
Never been to the Keys, so this summer , instead of a Mexican beach I think we'll head to Key West, taking beach roads as much as possible.
