Sure! If you don't mind pulling the gas tank to change the oil!!

Sounds like we might be passing each other repeatedly.

Ain't that the truth! I just put a SS drain hose from CJDesigns that makes it much quicker. All I will have to do is swing down the skid plate. Actually, it may be faster since the crashbars don't have to be disconnected and swinging the skid plate out of the way is much faster than removing the GS plate! But, checking and adjusting the valves is another matter! I love hydraulic valves!

Maybe we can meet up somewhere!. We will be leaving Escuitla June 20 headed to Oaxaca, Acapulco, Morelia, Pachuga, Puebla, and Cuernavaca before returning to Escuitla July 1 mas o menus. Then I will be headed to Lazaro Cardenas July 3 and leave there July 9 for Dallas and then home.

Craig and his lovely wife were hosted at Casa WB before and after their return from riding Mexico. Great guy, great couple. They sent me a bunch of Wisconsin goodies when they got back home

Let's keep in touch.

Current plan is to weekend in Parras June 15 then head south in the direction of VER with possible stops in SLP, Villa Bernal, Ajijic and Mexico City before arriving in VER. Otherwise my plans are nailed down.

Here is a little something for Trice and JD, should remind them of some of the magic down here.

Try this website, it is connected with a very good magazine here in Mexico that is usually a good source of info. Viva Mexico Desconocido!

http://www.mexicodesconocido.com.mx/...s-magicos.html

If the link doesn't take you immediately to the photo of Zacatlan just before dawn, 01-Feb 08-Feb in photos of the week Pueblos Magicos.

I sure wish I had taken that photo, pero mi huevo izquierdo already went towards trying to reach half the level of Manuel Alvarez Bravo!

Schizz,

Since MikeMike is linking you to Pueblos Magico pics, here's a shot I took in Parras one morning. And, since you are headed to Parras soon for a weekend, take your swimsuit. You can make plenty of friends at this spring fed pool. There are four different ones in town. This one is the best. Small entry fee. The water comes directly from an aquifer. It is clean water and circulates out where it is then passed downstream for agricultural use. Should be warm on the weekend, people will be out. The Parras residents love their town. You will notice how clean it is. Very little trash, and when the residents see trash, they pick it up.

BTW, trice is correct. Best light for photo shots is early morning or early evening.
