He would really like the road between Alto Lucero and Plan de las Hayas.
The section that washed out a few years ago during Hurricane Karl is still, well, washed out. There are 4 distinct parts to this section.

The set up: You are cruising either from Alto Lucero or to Alto Lucero and you hit a stretch where you can actually get out of 2nd gear (or 4th if you are on a KLR) because there are fewer potlholes per square meter of "road". There is a blind corner on both sides of this little marvel of highway engineering mixed with the wrath of mother nature.

The execution: Yours. If you are not lucky. What happens is, the road literally disappears from in front of you. There is a massive gap and a helluva drop (one scale more than "heckuva" on the drop scale). If you are lucky, you can at least nudge your arse out of the seat and make a half assed (or arsed) attempt at trying to unweight the bike a little.

The realization: This is when you understand that you are probably going to make it if you just hang on and don't do anything really silly.

The denouement: (a word little used on this thread but really should be used more, it fits many events here perfectly) Might include a lost filling from a tooth if one is loose, a quarter inch of tongue missing if it was sticking out of your mouth when the surprise happened, but is generally limited to a "chupon" on your seat cover.

Never forget: An AirHawk is very good for concealing evidence.

The magic is that the thing works in either direction. At one point, someone had stuck a pie plate in a tree as some kind of an advanced warning. So, the rule is, when you see a pie plate hanging from a string in a tree, pay attention.

For those keeping track of such things, this is the road where the Mystery Rider was trying to entice the goat, a boulder half the size of a Volkswagen occupies a lane after a blind corner, and rusted barbed wire is used for a guardrail, but only on the parts where the drops are more than about 500 meters.

Andres and Arte are intimately acquainted with this little stretch of road, too. Everyone owes it to themselves and their cardiologist to ride it at least once.

Got any pix... especially of the drop off and exit on the other side from either direction.

Next time through, I will try to oblige you.
Arte did it in the dark, once.

Rape

Bato, the rape comment was very inappropriate. The next time you look in your daughter or granddaughter's eyes think about what you said.

This is for you: Amigo ,Mexico is bigger and his problems


Cielito lindo - Lovely sky

From the Sierra Morena,
Lovely sky, come down,
A pair of dark eyes,
Lovely sky, of smuggling.

Through mounds of hair,
heavenly one, a dark pair of eyes
(that could steal a man's heart)
lower as they approach.
Ay, ay, ay, ay,
Sing and don’t cry,
Because singing, they brighten up,
Lovely sky, the hearts.
Ay, ay, ay, ay,
sing and don't cry,
for hearts are happy, heavenly one,
when singing.
.
If a bird abandons his nest,
heavenly one,
then finds it occupied by another,
that first bird got what he deserved.

That beauty spot that you have,
Lovely sky, next to the mouth,
Don’t give it to anyone else,
Lovely sky, because it touches me.

Don't give away that beauty mark
that you have next to your mouth,
heavenly one, to just anybody.
Share all your beauty with me.

If your moraine mouth,
Was made out of sugar, was made out of sugar,
I would spend my time,
Lovely sky, absorbing it.

If your sweet mouth
were made of sugar,
I would spend my time, heavenly one,
on a sugar high.
From your house to the mine
Lovely sky, there’s no more than a step,
Before your mother comes,
Lovely sky, give me a hug.

Your house is only steps away from mine,
heavenly one.
So before your mother shows up,
give me a hug.
An arrow in the air,
Lovely sky, Cupid has launched it,
An arrow in the air,
Lovely sky, that has struck me.
Cupid shot an arrow
into the air,
heavenly one,
and that arrow struck me.

" or something like that
