There was light traffic and the road is in perfect shape. There is a lot of burning going on in the Sierra right now and the air was kind of hazy.

For anyone who hasn't done it, this stretch of road, without stopping is almost 2 solid hours of tight curves.

I left DGO early and had a late breakfast in Mazatlan at the Shrimp Bucket. There is a market (Las Changeras) setup in Old Town Mazatlan where they sell beautiful fresh shrimp, scallops and other seafood, cheap! I picked up a few kilos, threw it in my saddle boxes with some ice and headed back up. If anyone does this, remember the ice last longer if you put it on the side opposite the muffler. I learned this the hard way the first time I tried this trick. . Of course you could throw in some vegetables and spices, put it all on the muffler side and have sopa de mariscos ready to eat by the end of the day.

Sorry, I didn't get very good photos. My camera ran out of batteries mid day and I had to switch to cell phone.


Shrimp omelet and liquado verde.

Las Changaras


I love the Shrimp Bucket. I try to have dinner there every time I go to Mazatlan. It is great to have a wonderful dinner and watch the sun set over the bay.....doesn't get much better...

I was looking for some 4.0 rims for the back of my V Star so I can run a fatter rear tire.

It's a matter of getting the hang of it, lurk more post less definitely applies there. You have to read through a lot of BS but there are some very smart FFs down there.

If you see a KTM broke down on the side of the road please stop, it will probably be me!
Have a great trip! If I see you at a Pemex I'll honk as I ride by.

My analogy to your quote reflecting on Jo Momma is this: you can see kernels of corn in a turd sometimes as well

Schizz, tell those riders to book on through, that tropical mess is likely not to develop in the next couple of days and appears to be wandering towards Florida. It will be the odd shower, mostly at night, and it is going to be very hot and humid with real feel temps into the 100f range by the weekend.
June in the Gulf. Sweaty times!
