This should be enough for any of Arte's Sierra Gorda backcountry trails.

Just to be sure, we added this engine bash plate:



To make tire changing on the trail much easier, on went this center stand:



Also added a Laminar Lip windscreen.

All in all, Bato left very satisfied





Bring on the trails in Mexico, Big Bend, and the Texas Hill Country

Drop the bitch today

As i was stopping at an intersection in Hunt Tx. today ...lost balance and had to dive in to the pave and let the bitch lay down
I should do take a pic but I was glad to had my gloves on, and I was happy I could pick her up by myself no sweat !

You're lucky! Took six of us to pick my bike up in Copper Canyon!

Everyone seemed impressed by how easy it was to pull the KLR back onto the road. The Ultra would have made an impression all it's own.

Whereever it was invented it is more important to end up with a good one vs. a bad one as some I really like and others are terrible. Salad or not,I am avoiding the town for awhile.

I used to really enjoy Tijuana but that was about a decade ago. It's a pretty tourist-friendly place with a slight edge, much like our own local and beloved N. Progreso, only bigger and more international.

Caesar's:

This is not where I saw the sign taking credit for inventing the salad. We saw it in downtown area on a formal restaurant with a large plate glass window...

Not quite sure what to tell you. If you look at my photo you can see "Caesar" painted on a window but the window is covered in paper and only the very tops of the lettering are showing. It was, when I was there, a pretty decent restaurant. A few blocks from the jai lai pavilion and across the street as I remember.
