No big deal. A minor glitch in an otherwise epic adventure.

Hector and I pushed little too hard on the security guards to let us into the construction zone of the new highway. Jim behaved well, like the polite Texas Gentleman that he is, but he was stuck with us Cabrones! The further we got in, the angrier they got and the less we wanted to backtrack. They were all connected by radio so by the time we got almost out there some pissed off armed dudes were waiting to give us a tongue lashing (reganaso). That was the end result. No shots fired.

Admittedly, it wasn't our best diplomatic moment. I had a kilo of Jumbo shrimp fresh from Mazatlan in my backpack. If I had though to bust them out I probably could have smoothed out the entire incident. Thinking of cool moves like that comes easy after the fact. Not in the tropical sun after a day of riding.

This story is much better told over a beer

oh man, i bought that stuff by the cart load when i found it at the Mega in PV. i was told it's seasonal so i stocked up. besides Patricia, from Uruguay, that was the only beer i could find that's dark and tasty like the Colorado beers i'm used to.

Cuauhtemoc does a chocolate stout.

anyone ever find that in the stores???

has anyone tried these other micros?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_in...ries_in_Mexico

there also is one in PV http://losmuertosbrewing.com/

and SJ del Cabo http://www.bajabrewingcompany.com/
these guys are from Steamboat :-)
and have alot of help from Fort Collins beer guru Doug Odell - http://odellbrewing.com/
knowing the top shelf quality that comes from an Odell pour, i'd put $ that Baja Brewing is THE best quality beer brewed in Mex.

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!
That pavement has more cracks in it than Obamacare!

Aca

The Canadians, Cruz and Strah, weigh in on the ACA! I am withholding judgment on the ACA. I am not withholding my opinion on how BO and boyz have screwed up the launch. What a bunch of incompetents!

Wiretapping the phones of the national leaders of some of our closest allies was also a very smooth move. What arrogance, what hubris...what a bad joke.

Geez, Lou Reed gone, hard to believe! He was one of those guys you think is just going to go on forever and ever.
Mortality is the great wide band equalizer. Reverb is measured by what you have left behind.

RMO was talking about time, earlier.
I believe that time is the grinding paste of life, but it's that damned trifecta of fate, luck, and destiny that complete the 3 angle valve job.
Win, Place, or Show, even a DNF, will always demonstrate that you at least tried.

For the record, the only thing that Ted Cruz and I have in common, is that we both look like sht in a suit and tie after standing up for 20 hours!

Gunshots at midnight on the streets of Parral outside the hotel (on Jim's side)

I picked the quiet side of the place.

Perhaps it was a reenactment of the final moments in Parral of Francisco "Pancho" Villa.

He died about a block from our hotel. Back in the day.

Parral to Marfa via Chihuahua today.

DO NOT take the cuota east of Chihuahua to Ojinaga!

The Libre is empty and filled with your final quota of twisties.

Using the "Taxi Trick" in Chihuahua we found a quaint joint to load up on caffeine.

Split with our new buds Jimmy (Austin) and his Oaxaca riding buddy Kevin (Phoenix). They're off for a Dios de Los Muertos experience in the best location in México.

As we entered Chihuahua, we passed moto cop and he lit up his lights! Story to follow!

Total Army Checkpoints This Trip: 1

Total Police Encounters This Trip: 0*

* I will give partial credit to today's Chihuahua Blue

Most of the usual military checkpoints I'm used to were abandoned.

The singular, longest straightaway of the week.

You'll have to squint to see the road continuing in the distance.

Location: somewhere near Coyame, CHI

Again, please excuse Tapatalk's photo size dealio for now

camping?

Hello,

Going down Baja to LaPaz, ferry to Mazatlan then to Copper Canyon.
Have learned much from forums, tourist card, tvip, ins, but seems most people motel it. Is that for not wanting to carry gear, motels good and cheap, to
spooky? Reasons for both please if you don't mind. Mexico pre Noob!!
Gracias for any advice.
