Actually, while my traveling days are increasing at a rapid rate, the miles traveled are not. Ana and my recent trip of over seven weeks was only 3,500 miles or so. We will be doing another similar one in a few weeks. The big miles are packed on quickly when I return to Texas/Mississippi to visit family and friends. I just returned from a four week 6,000 mile trip doing that. Of course that includes a three day, 1,500 mile plus ride to Dallas on roads I have ridden many times, the same on the return. Not exactly laid back sight seeing miles.

Check out Yahualica and the new dam under construction nearby, Presa Zapotillo for a day ride. In the Los Altos region of northern Jalisco on the border with Zacatecas. Los Altos, place of the tall white people (con ojos azules.)

New Harley ADV model!

Harley has unveiled its long awaited and much anticipated ADV model bike.

I keep telling Pancho, "Yes, it's doable on your Harley". But, he doesn't always listen.

Harley, in the interest of reaffirming traditional family values, encourages riders to take their families with them.

Donnie? Well, after viewing this, I'll bet two KTMs are going to come up fast on mercadolibre punto com!

There are GSA riders that will go pale and get the shakes when they see this. This is the kind of guy the pirates need as their road captain.

Milton Otto (better known over on Two Wheeled Texans dot com) did a bunch of Mexico exploration - including off road - on a Harley back in the day.

"He just don't give a shit." Not much of a creek crossing though.

That twasn't so bad. I've seen Harleys take on worse. Their feet take a beating.

Cochineal Dyes

As cochineal dyes have been an occasional topic on this thread I thought this recent event would be of some interest.

For background:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cochineal

The auction.

Oaxaca's side trip opportunities, all right there in the Central Valley, are as fascinating as Oaxaca itself

Then add her beaches

Today's Perfect Red, however, comes from Napa Valley, not Oaxaca Valley
