I asked a peasant to take me a picture. Then the guy asked me... are you Huicho?
No, I said. Why?
Because I heard one your buddies at the front saying.., who really worries me is Huicho...

Stay tunned, more to come..

I'll post some more pics this weekend.

By the way we are planning to do a quick ride this sunday, around Reynosa. Probably go to Laguna Madre at the Gulf of Mexico, 140 miles south. I'll bring some pics as well.

From another former McAllenite... What a great ride and report! If I still lived down there I would definitely ride the Sierra Madre Oriental. Although that ride out of Real de Catorce looked pretty harrowing. Especially for a guy who only rides pavement (but dreams of a KLR).

Le agradezco para el reportaje y que les vayan muy bien.

Hola Roberto, Originalmente habiamos planeado ir al evento de Galeana (hasta habitaciones reservadas teniamos) pero surgieron otros compromisos de ultima hora y lo cancelamos. Pero creo que pronto haremos una visita al cerro del potosi.

Saludos !

Thanks Arte

It look like there will be forty for so of us riding out of Galeana next week. Most to the guys are riders like your self riding the better back roads in and around there. But me and few others are looking for those out of the way places. If you like you can check out what we are doing here http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27799.
