A great visit with Trice and Jimmex. A real morale booster for me. Good talk, good jokes, good Bacanora and great Tacos de carne asasda. Enjoy the salsa de chiltepin.

I met a guy, Roberto, who told me a guy a few doors down sold gas out of jerry cans, so after sharing breakfast with him, I headed over there. Something smelled really good just outside a restaurant by the gas station, and I found out it is oregano, which apparently grows really well, and almost wild in these parts. There was a bagging operation right there which paid the locals 12 pesos per kilogram, or a little less than 50 cents per pound. Compare that to the stuff you buy in the spice rack at Whole Foods.

You sure that's oregano?

If you rode through town, it sounds like you took the road over the mountain east to Suchil-Sombrerete Zacatecas. It's a neat road too. It is very isolated up there and hosts one of only two populations of native Mexican Grey Wolves. If they weren't doing construction, that road would be a great alternative to get to Zacatecas from Durango. I used to do it on my KLR when it was all dirt.

The turn off to San Blas is right before you get into Mezquital not passing through Mezquital. The sign says Temoaya. Anyway, it is always nice to to get off the beaten path.

Sorry I missed you. I was traveling. Just got back last night. I flew from DF to LAX, right over a lot of the Sierra with great views of Copper Canyon. Aeromexico has a brand new 787 and is using it for that route.

Suerte with your new adventures!

Here in SoCo it means that there are deer or elk in the road.

[QUOTE=MikeMike;.....
the Mexican traffic sign that literally says, basically, yield to vehicles that flash their lights. [/QUOTE]

Aha! That splains it , all over Mexican roads
" CONCEDA CAMBIO DE LUCES "
And for all these years I thought it meant
Dim your high beams for oncoming traffic
" Sign speak" is often terse and a bit hard
to interpret.I think I caught on to
" NO DE FRENTE" as meaning Do Not Enter
after going up the wrong side of s traffic separator
and met oncoming traffic . OOOOPS

Good, I thought you were the waiter. You are not a bad looking guy, but if you were the Taco del Ojo at Red Robin in Banamichi, than aint going to Hooters there!

BTW, you know its good Bacanora if you can pour a liter in the tank when you run out of gas and it will get to the next Pemex.

Also, how's that sexy little Italian super model looking next to those fat old German chicks?

Will this be an outing on the Asian or the European steed?
I'll bring the sexy old dowdy European. She's experienced in erasing toll booth barricades, familiar with steep sided Mexican ditches and needs to learn how to navigate topes at subsonic speeds.... and she likes Pemex verde

Speaking of Pemex, I coasted into the Yecora Pemex completely out of gasoline. Aye Cabron! Must get used to Italian's smaller tanque. 225 miles out of a 5.25 gal tank.

Man, you must have ran out of Bacanora!

To maintain her nice thin sexy figure, she cant be all bloated up with too much gas. Plus 150HP will suck down some rojo!

Good thing you made it. I'd rather die of dehydration and starvation with that bike on the side of the road than leave her there alone to get gas. Good thing you are rolling with a Tanker Pilot. He wont leave you dry!

Ok Bob, plus that old Lily Marlene of yours knows my garage, too.
We'll have to see if the Guaterider is planning on a little trip up to this area.
