I probably missed it if you posted about it, but the question is, do you have GPS routes for the "classic" rides out of Veracruz down towards Puebla and in and around the Huasteca?

How about a map drawn on the back of a cuota receipt?
No?
Well, I know there is a deluxe version for sale at the Seal Club that is on the back of a Pemex factura.
But I've got the pirated version that comes with a genuine "Onega" chronograph!
What'll be?
If the "Onega" is sold out, we can fix you up with a Raul Newman Rolex Datonya.

I'm working with MikeMike to drag him kicking and screaming into the iron age. Trying to get him to give up on his bronze wrenches is tough I tell ya!

I'm logging the rides he shows me. Time permitting I'll eventually get them organized into something distributable.

Works for most of us. Used ADV bikes with the best farkles, lightly broken in and at discount prices ;)

Bueno

Mike's and your efforts in this will be appreciated by a lot of riders - in addition to the riders who have already benefitted by being down there on "guided" rides.

Only if it makes me twitch, salivate, and shake less while watching the weather reports on TV.
Though I am getting to the age where I need to conserve those qualities.
I think I will get some advice from Bob Loblaw.

Mexico may be just a little bit safer today since the Dept of Justice has sued to prevent Anheiser Busch from purchasing the other 50% of Grupo Modelo that Bud doesn't already own. Modelo is the 3rd largest brewer in the US by sales.

Needless to say, the ideal situation would be someone with a vehicle with a trailer so that we could ride along. If they could take both us and the bikes we could pay more than if it is just the bikes. Anyone with real help can contact me at

Thanks in advance

You mean won't be a treat anymore "real coffee" down there???

The "El Marino" ground coffe in the tin, that's especially vile. I threw that out and found myself an "Expendio de cafe" and bought the real thing. Kept the can and use it everyday...17 years or so too long.

Lots of good coffee down there, just that they don't really use them.Or weren't using them??? Some of the best coffee I ever had was in Vera Cruz, they were still using the big old espresso machines with the eagles on top. Waiter walking around with 2 kettles, one with coffee the other steamed milk. An inch of coffee in a tall glass.....Mas mas por favor and then steamed milk. Good morning to us....!

Now if I can just find a proper bike for that, I'll be down there shortly for coffee but only if they let me back in.Newer passport....should be fine. Need larger saddlebags so I could bring coffee back. Any Starpucks yet? I am OK with that, I doubt I'd be riding a BMW for a change.

Apparently a bomb has gone off in the building next to Pemex's headquaters in Mexico City.

Reports are typically wild for now, but they are saying maybe 14 dead and many others injured.

No idea. It's their 52 floor HQ. Does that help?

Went to the Mexican news websites. No, not the same building. Thanks.
