You're welcome, TC. I thought that might be one of the tunes you play when you take out the guitar.

Jimmy, thanks, that area is southwest of where we came off the mountain after the "Jimmy" ride. Some very interesting things in this area.

That's the new owner of my Big Bend, Hill Country, and Mex Trek "unknown ride" '09 KLR - sold this morning

The '13 KTM 500 stays

Next on the block is my '12 Triumph Rocket III

The 2006 BMW GSA goes after the Triumph sells

A new, surpise Mexico bike is headed for the garage

Top Secret

Only Salma and the NSA knows what it is

He got a good deal on the KLR.
I will bet your next Mexico bike is either the big KTM or the waterboxer.
Odds on fav is the Katoom.
Either will look fine parked out front of Mariscos Villa Rica Mocambo.

The Perfect Mexico Bike

Does not exist

Well, it does exist. It's the bike you have now, that you will reasonably prep, and take to Mexico.

There are so many "What's the best bike for blah blah blah"? threads out there.

It isn't a GSA, it isn't a Super Sherpa, it's not a Triumph. It's not trading in this year's model for next year's model. It's not a KTM 500 nor a KLR.

October is coming. Anytime is the right time to go to Mexico, but October begins the golden season. There are no perfect Mexico travel months, but October and April are pretty perfect.

Best place to go in the fall is the Canyon and the highlands.**

Best place to go in the spring are the southern beaches.**

Best bike to take you to either of these places is that machine in your garage that just needs good rubber, fresh battery, and a spare key taped somewhere on the frame. Get on it, it's only August and you can be ready, with the bike you have now, for your October run.

(**yeah yeah blah blah, I know you have your favorites too )

What he said. I took my 01 ST1100A two years ago. Lots of ruff roads and topes failed to faze her. Next trip will be my ADVentureized DRZ-400-E for a little ruffer roads. Haven't been to the canyon yet.

One pipe is intake and the other is exhaust.





Trice and Schizzmen, next time we ride by Santa Maria Del Oro we need to slow down to see some historical sights. Back in the 1930s this set of Busch-Sulzer Brothers Diesel Generators was used to power an electric arc furnace for smelting ore. The entire building is constructed out of blocks made from molded smelter slag.

I couldn't stay as long as I would have wanted to. The killer bees turned one of the engines it into a hive and were starting to get excited. I'm surprised no one has hauled this away for scrap yet. It should be in a museum.

One of my Favorites - Dixie Chicks

If you've not been to Mexico this year, you've been "A Long Time Gone"

We haven't played this one (lot of Mexico touches) on the IMS juke box in awhile:

(best in "full screen", and, with at least about 2 shots of Patron XO Café, or similar)

I can just see some trabajero with his burro cart standing in front of those big diesels just saying: "hold my tequila, I'm pretty sure I can do this".
