Nashville's own Chicoblanco shown prepping on his brand new 1190 here at the Casona today.

He's on his way to spend some work sabbatical months in Mexico and beyond, with a target turnaround point being Ecuador.

Ray Harmon brought us a just-off-the-pit rack of his succulent ribs at his BBQ place for a rainy day chit chat on travel tips and routes.

In case you cabrones miss Mexico en la mañana, close your eyes and listen to the voices...be sure to crank up the speakers so the neighbors can enjoy it, too! Add the scent of some chorizo frying, fresh orange juice, and the aroma of un buen cafe. And you're here.



And practice your Spanish, keep your skills sharp, with the interview of the person behind the voice...

To avoid a "Long Cat" post and an even later start home I'll just post this for now and catch up later:

Left Tamazunchale yesterday for Santiago NL to meet up with the remaining riders of the latest Galeana ride. They had already headed home with a bit of tourista, etc., but I found THIS little jewel which I'm certain did NOT make Sjoerd's Guide.





Nice view



This Jr. Suite is what they moved me to after a pretty good scare in a standard room. While taking a shower the lights began flickering then a loud popping from the shower head and I beat it outta there! One call and they had Manuel up to my room in two minutes. Turns out they saw the flickering throughout the hotel. Eeeeeejolay!!



Walked around the plaza and found this new restaurant.



Ordered the Filete de Loma (rare) with a nice Chilean red



And flan with cappuccino



OK, all better now. It's something of a tradition of mine to treat myself at the end if a trip and this ended up far better than what I had planned in Montemorelos. Thank you Brian Flynt. Hope you're feeling better.

Someone I know very well just rode Mexico, and this photo shows us his response...

Of course, Milton is a dentist, so there's that

Home. Well, close. At the Whole Foods Draft Shack. There are still some things worth coming home for.

I'm a little late with this but, better late than never. I want to give a huge Attaboy and and and to this guy.



I had a little fall down about 300km south of Durango last winter and wasn't able to continue riding. Needed some help getting my bike to the border and SR offered to look after it. Had to arrange two haulers and even stored it in his warehouse for awhile. Fronted the money for the shippers. I know you guys know this but a great example of the quality of people in the ADV world.

Muchas gracias mi amigo.

Hi guys. Nice photo of Yours Truly in my natural habitat, at Tia Chonas with glass of vino tinto in hand and swapping ridiculous riding lies with a fellow ADV rider!

No big deal about the bike extraction. Just a few phone calls involved. In fact, sending F-800s to the border is getting to be a fairly routine procedure around here!.

RexBuck, I'm glad you got to see that the highway from Jesus Maria to Ruiz and that little hidden corner of Mexico. Hopefully next time it will be on bike!

Saludos Amigos!

Reporting from overcast Mazatlan, where we are seeing some weather from Hurricane Amanda.
