The ocean water cleanses the soul. Not too sure what it does to wheel bearings and electrical connections?

Right! Those of us from the rust belt know...

ODOT now has this wonderful liquid pre-treat brine solution they spray on the roads and it sticks to the roads. Wonder if it sticks to your car? Probably developed in a secret General Motors lab.

Speaking of General Motors: For those Gear heads and Corvette fans here....National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky had a sink hole yesterday that swallowed 6 cars. Maybe that secret Lab is underground in the museum

Don't worry. I'm picking up SR's bike for him.

He will never see it

Bonus: he got us great seats for the Spurs

Did a chunk of beach riding in the Baja in January

On the Pacific side there is a lot of very wet soft pack stuff

You force yourself to ignore your front wheels demand to track the rut made by the bike in front of you. The trick was to coax the bike to a virgin path, and stay on the throttle.

In and out of fog banks, it became surreal

It's my policy to field test all of SR's gear he has shipped here to the Casona, as a service of course. Bikes too.

What are friends for?

It pays to eyeball what SR picks out for gear. I thought I had it dialed in with pressure suit armor for Baja, but I think I'll set it aside and go with SR's Roost Deflector strategy.

The Spurs have me thinking maybe some chaps too

Note to self: DO NOT let the girlfriend know about ADVrider forum.

Potential issue for future road trips out of state / country.

There may be some, but nobody I know of has Michoacán or Guerrero on the slate until things sort themselves out in the region

A pic of NBA franchise dancers in a public arena shouldn't be that much trouble

What's funny is nobody caught me (L) and Sjoerd (R) in the corner of the pic

It is small and inexpensive but not a cheap unreliable POS like the Chinese bikes sold here in Mexico.

Here is mine. I still need to pick it up in Texas and import it to Mexico.
I'm jealous, SR, you and Rhodetrip have disc brakes. I need to work on my '87 a bit and determine if I want to make it legal or just ride the ranch roads
