True dat. I'm still a bit

I actually like lurking the basement (I enjoy thinking through economic and political issues) but post sparingly.

What the basement reinforces for me is the dramatically differing way that each of us sees the world. Our common passion for motorcycles obscures this.

Well, we at least have a relief valve now.

I was in Ajijic last new year.....I really liked it there....don't know the trail you will chose, but 23 south of Fresnillo to Guadalajara is highly recommended. I took it several times in Dec and Jan.....I plan on doing it again the 4 th of July weekend.....I don't know if I will go as far as Ajijic but I plan on at least going to Guadalajara
I got Tacos!

Sorry to derail this thread, but I could use a good recommendation to buy tires from in Mexico.
Preferrably as close to Oaxaca or P. Angel as possible.

Hijack over.

Those are some badass Mofos! No wimpy dirt hillclimbing venues for 'em like in the US. No, they are sure to include some huge nasty rock outcroppings.

The ultimate "hold my beer" event.

Tires

Tires are an occasional subject here...definitely part of safety. How did you do with the storm?

Nice pix! Ate at Mel's (IIRC) 2+ years ago after riding Copper Canyon. Kiko let me stay in his house in Jocotepec and we had breakfast the next morning at a restaurant in the plaza you posted up.

We'll see how it all plays out. An email at work today made mention of my upcoming vacation. The one my boss approved over a month ago. I get an email from my boss this afternoon: "What vacation?!"

Sheesh!

I'm always pushing and promoting this event because it's a lot of fun. This year I finally convinced another Gringo (Tricepilot) to join me. I understand it's a big production to drag a dirt bike down to Mexico, but I really think it would be worth it.

This year the event is sold out with 100 people. Registration is limited because there are a limited amount of cabins to stay at in the mountains on the first night. 100 people is a good manageable number of people for something like this.

But if anyone wants to come down and ride, you don't need an event. There are groups of guys going out riding almost weekend. You can always ride in the Sierra by yourself, but do it with caution. The Sierra Madre of western Mexico is way more rugged, way more isolated, and way less developed than anywhere in the western USA, so you need to be prepared if you go off road!

Speaking of shit and mud have you seen any of the news footage of the German floods? It is not going to be safe to ride there for awhile.

On the topic of two of natures most troublesome materials, a cat is running for mayor of Xalapa. Morris...el "candigato". His slogan is that he will get rid of all the rats.
Politics Mexican style, accept no substitutes!
I would have put this in the basement but someone would tell me the cat was a dog and could talk like Chomsky.

LANZAN A MORRIS!

06 June, 2013 07:01:00

CON BOMBO Y PLATILLO

* LOS CIBERNAUTAS LO PROPONEN COMO CANDIDATO A LA ALCALDÍA DE XALAPA
* Bajo el lema de "A Xalapa le conviene votar por otro animal" y "no más ratas en Xalapa", el "candigato Morris" se ha convertido en "trending tropic" entre los usuarios de Twitter y Facebook en la entidad.

Por Noé Zavaleta

JALAPA, Ver., (apro).- Un peculiar candidato de cuatro patas, de color negro con blanco, apareció recientemente en esta entidad, donde este próximo 7 de julio se renovarán 212 alcaldías y 50 diputaciones locales.

Aunque no pertenece a ningún partido político, en pocos días se ha ganado la simpatía de miles de ciudadanos hartos de los políticos. Se trata del gato Morris, un minino que contiende por la alcaldía de Xalapa.

Bajo el lema de "A Xalapa le conviene votar por otro animal" y "no más ratas en Xalapa", el "candigato Morris" se ha convertido en "trending tropic" entre los usuarios de Twitter y Facebook en la entidad.

A 32 días de las elecciones, Morris ha cimbrado las estructuras de campaña de los candidatos de la coalición Veracruz para Adelante, de PAN y PRD, quienes observan cómo sus comentarios, fotografías y actividades, son rebasados por la popularidad del "candigato Morris".

Sólo en Facebook, y a una semana de ser creada la cuenta, el felino lanzado a político virtual cosecha ya más de 6 mil 950 likes.

Incluso, los creadores de Morris han mandado a hacer engomados y mantas con los slogan's de campaña del "candidato", los cuales ya se pueden ver circulando por la Atenas Veracruzana en las partes traseras de vehículos particulares.

En su cuenta de Facebook, el singular personaje se anuncia de la siguiente manera: "El candigato Morris se postula para que votes por él este 7 de Julio. Ante la cantidad de ratas que acechan esos puestos sólo un gato podrá poner orden. El candigato no promete nada más que el resto de los candidatos: Descansar y retozar".

La imagen que mayor popularidad ha generado en las redes sociales es donde Morris hace escarnio del reconocimiento al gobernador priista Javier Duarte, por ser presunto garante y protector de la libertad de prensa y de los comunicadores, galardón entregado por la Asociación Mexicana de Editores (AME) y que entre el gremio periodístico fue bautizado como el chayopremio.

En la fotografía, Morris aparece a un costado de una imagen de Javier Duarte; al lado de éste aparece la alcaldesa priista de Xalapa, Elizabeth Morales, quien recibió el premio nacional al Buen Gobierno Municipal 2013, presea otorgada pese a que la capital del estado está llena de baches y registra altos niveles de inseguridad, entre otras deficiencias.

Ahí el 'candigato' presume: "Como todo buen gato, cuando la cago, la tapo. Y no ando exhibiendo mis premios. Morris, Presidente Municipal 2014-2017".

En otras imágenes o stickers, el singular felino también se candidatea para ser legislador en la cámara local, aludiendo en sus lemas que al igual que los actuales diputados es experto "en holgazanear y bostezar".
