Nice looking DRZ George. I had a DRZ 400E in Mexico for about 4 years and rode the hell out of it. I recently traded it for a WR450F but I still miss a few things about it. Mostly the nice soft ride.

I would be surprised if you need an auxiliary fan. Mine seemed to have a very efficient cooling system and only started to boil up maybe a couple of times that I can recall in extreme conditions. It has a lot of radiator fluid and a lot of oil. The fan and its intermittent power load could bring a load of new problems.

My dos centavos.

A friend of ours is going to visit my wife who is at our place in Scottsdale. From there my wife will ship it to you as soon as she has the chance...unless of course she doesn't follow directions. PM me your mailing address when you have a sec.

Jick, we are anxiously awaiting your return. You too, Trice and Jimmex. BTW, I tried throwing my leg over Bisbonian's Guzzi but it was painful. I did get on the TW200 and move it around in the garage. Won't be long I'm hoping.

Hello,

Thanks for advice. Bike was just bought in Ca. but being reg in Idaho. Idaho requires vin verification and nobody here would do that, DMV, CHP, AAA unless you reg bike here. Went to private vin verifier and paid $45.00. Papers being overnighted to idaho and plates and all paperwork will be done in time.

Thanks again to all who responded,

It probably was already fine grain dusthickey

Veracruz Like You've Never Seen It

James A. Fitzpatrick. I bet RMO has heard of him or probably knew him.

Visiting Veracruz was filmed in 1946. The Hotel Mocambo resort was just finished, the Emporio was a hot spot.

This is before the Pacific coast opened up. Veracruz was a very popular tourist destination for Mexicans. Trains arrived from all over the republic.
It was the "beach" destination until Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta started up.

The Hotel Emporio was remodeled for the 3rd time a few years ago. You can see it at the 01:41 mark. That is where Trice and Schizz stayed. I can tell you that it is NOT found in Sjoerd's book! LOL! It had been remodeled in the 60's, again in the early 80's (my wife bought some used air conditioners and office furniture from the hotel when she was outfitting her first orthodontics and dentistry practice when she was graduating).

The bow tying dance that is being done was filmed at the Mocambo resort.

One year after WW2. Take a look at the beaches, the fishing, how small the port was.

Enjoy!

You can still find the old Veracruz. Simply head down to Alvarado and beyond. Montepio hasn't changed, it likely never will.

Nice find Mike!

I really enjoyed that. I also like the genre of that film, the narrative style, and the priceless captures of Old Veracruz.

Going to tie Sjoerd up and make him stay at the "new" Emporio, just to torture him
