Bill, the road from Oaxaca to Huatulco has to be one of the best motorcycle rides in Mexico. While in Oaxaca I recommend a visit to the Arbol de Tule. It is only 15 minutes from town. The tree is surprisingly impressive and there are a several good restaurants in the area. This picture doesn't do it justice. Monte Alban is very much worth the trip up the hill. The Benito Juarez Museum is interesting too.



We got some good Mescal in Oazaca right downtown but I cant remember the name. I'll ask my wife when she gets home. Down south they often drink Mezcal with and orange or an grapefruit instead of a lime as they do in the North with Tequila.

Nice route!

In Guachochi the Hotel Melina has secure moto parking out back and is a few doors away from a restaurant that serves grilled trout.

Da Boyz

Just had a FaceTime call with Jimmex and Tricepilot in Hidalgo de Parral. They are tearing it up...Jimmy on his new red duke. Pretty good connection too . Not too many hiccups.

Nice to talk to (and see) our man RMO in Telluride!

Again please excuse the temporary Tapatalk oversize photo issue, but here's Jimmex on his new Ducati Multistrada diving into one of today's 1,749 curves. This whole week has been like this!

Thanks SR
I am staying in Santa Maria del Tule with a great Canadian couple who run Overland Oasis . Picked up a link to them from somewhere here on ADV and its working out great . Their offer to be able to help out with repairs was what I liked as I will service the bike here .
I will visit the tree tomorrow I think . Mont Alban Monday . And will add the Museum now as well .
Just looked for the route to Huatulco , is that down Mex 175 ? I have been told that is a great road . I came up from Puerto Escondido on 131 , and it was in poor condition a lot of the way , but I was feeling unwell , so wasn't in best riding mode either .
My hosts here are going to direct me to where they make some Mezcal , so hope to visit there as well . Time is always the enemy .

Jimmex says no México birthday party pics! Too bad! You don't often see a girl hanging off a chandelier like this!

Time as Enemy

Time as enemy? It just occurred to me that time is not the enemy, those who take it from us are. Time is finite and we never know how much we are going to get of it.

Got great video of Jimmex carving it up in the heart of the Copper Canyon.

I'll have to delete the segment of passing a semi-remolque on Dead Man's Curve.
Did Jimmex give you any details about our last adventure in the Sierra? I still can't stop thinking about it!! Jim, you must have got some some good photos?

I missed the pre-ride meeting (Carne Asada/Borrachera) last night at Hector's, but next weekend we plan to do a two day off road ride way up north of San Miguel De Cruces and over to Topia. Google, Santa María de Otaez, DGO, Mexico.

Inspired by Jim, I got my new Big Loop Coyote bag all ready to go. Always searching for that next route to the coast!!
