Found a girlfriend in Uvalde and am working through the vertigo that is making riding difficult. I will be back to full force soon.

Yeah, I've had girlfriends that caused vertigo.

Only RW66's Tiger missing from the pic, Garage WB would have had eight bikes.

Tyler's water cooled GS is looking good.

Nice cover story Dennis. Penicillin doesn't cure vertigo.

Cool report and good for them.

(All their positive comments reflect my view as well. Had a great time in 2011 and plan to be back down there soon as my Dr. Zook is outfitted.)

I thought this was an interesting line from the report:

"Too often the locals living in the tourist areas are jaded due to repeated exposure to haughty, frightened, rich vacationers who view their country as being dangerous and poor".

I just posted the Harley bit on my FB page. I'm not worried that anyone of my Harley friends will kick my ass because they are not coming to Mexico

Looks like Mexico is not safe from something, judging by the lumps in this snake. Remind me tell you some time, the joke about the rabbit and the boa. Bet a KLR rider could make a tire out of that.
From today's paper:
APARECIÓ UN MOSTRO!

30 August, 2013 07:39:00

Boca del Río.- Vecinos de la colonia Miguel Alemán, de la ciudad de Boca del Río, pidieron el auxilio de Protección Civil del municipio debido a que avistaron una serpiente de gran tamaño en los patios de algunas viviendas.

Al lugar se trasladaron efectivos de Bomberos Conurbados quienes buscaron entre la vegetación del lugar hasta dar con el animal comprobando que se trataba de un ejemplar de gran tamaño, atípico para la zona.

Tras varios minutos de maniobras, los elementos de la corporación lograron capturar a la víbora que fue asegurada y trasladada a la comandancia para entregarla a las autoridades ambientales.

Los primeros informes indican que es una Boa Constrictor que pudo llegar hasta el área urbana después de las inundaciones provocadas por la Tormenta Tropical Fernand.

Todavía se investiga si el ejemplar no escapó de alguna vivienda dado a que algunas personas gustan tenerlas como mascotas exóticas.

Es probable que la boa sea entregada a la Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (Semarnat) para que sea canalizada a una Unidad de Manejo Ambiental.
