I think I can speak for everyone here when I say that I would not be upset if you posted some pictures.

Here's hoping you find that "something" and share it with the rest of us...

Pictures, please!

Great start man. I got this one bookmarked and am waiting for more. Pic's would be nice.

Ride safe and watch out for the domesticated critters. And I don't think I need to tell you to have a good time.

Bebes una cerveza fria para mi.

Be safe man. Watch for GSAdventura. He's in Costa Rica or somewhere right around there. Neal's pretty good company.

All this talk of getting old
It's getting me down my love
Like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown
This time I'm comin' down

And I hope you're thinking of me
As you lay down on your side
Now the drugs don't work
They just make you worse
But I know I'll see your face again


There is no cure for what ails you,
and searching for the ever elusive Brigadoon is an exercise in futility.
Every notch you raise the bar just makes it harder on you when you need the next fix.
It’s a long dark drawn out path to unattainability that only the insane would pursue.
Do you often do the same thing over and over again and expect different results?
Ask yourself, WWJCMD?
Unless you plan on mainlining alternative cultures and OD’ing you might as well turn back now.
Things will only be worse when you get back.
Just think of all the junk mail.
The diamonds and trinkets, and plastic yokes
The longer you’re gone the more glaring the disparity.
Turn back now, it’s for your own good.

The drugs don’t work,
They just make it worse.

Yours anonymously,

An Addict

OK, you've piqued my curiosity. Care to elaborate?

I just rolled into Palenque after 12 hrs of riding today - half of which was spent lost on muddy roads in the Sierra Tuxtlas - and I´m beat. Might spend 2 nights here and catch up...dunno.

Saw fresh signage today proudly proclaiming that Mex 186 remains undefeated in the World Highways Blow Me Championship.

I need State maps. Guia ´Best Amigo´ Roji ain´t cutting it for the back road stuff.

Almost zero pics on day uno, a few good ones on day dos and again today. Sorry I´m late getting any up, but will do so soon.

Bike is running well and I made the right choice in tires...so far.
Trying to beat dark:30 today, she drank fuel like a 50 year old black-root blonde lush with a stolen credit card in a bar on 9th Ave.

Fuel here is 6.8 per liter for the green stuff.
