One regret I have is that over the last 40 yrs I never bothered much to document moto trips with fotos. Now that I'm on the downside of the mountain I decided better late than never. It is a mental struggle though to remember to bring a camera and then all that thinkin and time that goes along with finding a shot. I'm more like a clutch out and punch it rider.

Fortunately, in the last 8 years one of my friends has taken hundreds of fotos of us riding so I can always scam some of those.

You can subscribe to Bandamax if you get Dish TV or DirecTV. Very entertaining.

Go figure.

Supposedly they were only recruiting from those that had never been cops before with an average age of 28. It's going to be interesting seeing them get that force up and working with no experienced officers.

Seems the purpose of the new police force is to provide protection (at the taxpayer's expense) for the rich Mexicans who are the owners of the monopolies. Economic Police for the rich.

EPN's new police? Well, I guess we'll just have to see what they do when someone flips them off...LOL!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...Pancho captured a rare pic of a longlegged fine filly in her natural element and habitat. He's got her up north, these days.



Whoops!
Sorry, wrong crop...this is better.

Der WasserNoggin' is back in the stable now. Running good and strong again. Have yet to do a top-end run to check it out fully. Q rated Twinduros are not the best for that kind of play.

Looking forward to the next Mexico ride.

Traveling in Mexico..

Well. Our man Jimmex hosted nephew 2 in Rico. Thanks, Jimmy. Big time was had. Aaron left Chama, NM this morning and was at his casa 11 hours later with a twenty minute mechanical. Probably burned a tile or two on re-entry. Holy shit. lol schizz. You are one bad influence. Just sayin'.

Mexico trip next up. We are thinking Sierra Gorda but can be persuaded otherwise. ;)

Aaron musta passed through Clovis. That'd keep anyone moving.

I'd bet Jimmy had a good time, too.

Hd a great time and even better ride with nephew 2 over the mountains and canyons to Utah. Spectacular, fun ride. Rain doused our White Rim Road plans but we did heat our tires up at the uranium reclamation site around Uravan. Super fun riding the big twin over the open dirt roads of Western CO.
