Bato, if they write off your bike, save me the seat! LOL! That's a good seat.
So, we'll put "Make Bato Laugh" on hold until the ribs get stuck back together and the java can easily reach la boca.
Hecho!

Ernesto is dumping a load of rain down here, a little windy, too. The rains make it interesting in the sierra.
The derrumbes are often noteworthy to say the least. Some people might remember this one.

How not to pay the cuota in Mexico.
When you are "feeling the love" of "Yo Soy #132"! The anti-Pina Nieto movement doing their thing.

LAS TOMAN!

09 Agosto, 2012 05:41:00

TOMAN CASETAS DE PEAJE CAMPESINOS Y ACTIVISTAS DE #YOSOY132 VERACRUZ

PLAN DEL RÍO, Ver., (apro).- I
ntegrantes del movimiento #YoSoy132 y campesinos del Movimiento Social Independiente tomaron las casetas de peaje en Plan del Río, La Antigua y Fortín de las Flores para protestar por "la imposición de Enrique Peña Nieto en la Presidencia".

Al grito de "¡Pase usted, Zapata invita!", estudiantes y campesinos se plantaron en las casetas de cobro que administra Caminos y Puentes Federales (Capufe), para luego dar paso libre a los automovilistas.

Y así, cada que pasaba un conductor en su vehículo los inconformes advertían que el paso era gratis por ese día, "gracias a Emiliano Zapata", en alusión al líder de la Revolución Mexicana que nació un 8 de agosto, pero de 1879.

En el caso particular de Fortín de las Flores, los conductores de vehículos dejaron de pagar 27 pesos; esta caseta conduce a los municipios de Córdoba, Orizaba, Río Blanco, Fortín de las Flores y los municipios de la Sierra de Zongolica.

La caseta de La Antigua fue bloqueada por espacio de dos horas; la de Plan del Río, perteneciente a la carretera 180, apenas unos cuantos minutos, pues la concentración mayor se haría en la que se encuentra a unos cuantos minutos del puerto de Veracruz.

En ese mismo punto se ubica un retén de la Secretaría de Marina y del Ejército Mexicano.

La acción de los jóvenes y campesinos consistió en levantar por la fuerza las plumas que indican el alto total a los conductores.

En el caso de la caseta de Plan del Río, el contingente de resistencia civil descompuso la pluma número uno; enseguida invitaban a los automovilistas a "no regalar" sus impuestos para la acumulación de la riqueza de unos cuantos.

No obstante, la toma de las instalaciones de Capufe no ocasionó fricción con los elementos de la Secretaría de Seguridad Pública (SSP) o con los propios empleados de la caseta de peaje.

Incluso, ante la interrupción del cobro, algunos empleados optaron por ponerse a leer el manifiesto de Desobediencia civil, un documento en donde los integrantes de #YoSoy132 explican las razones por las que decidieron iniciar un movimiento pacífico contra la "imposición" del excandidato presidencia priista.

En los tres puntos de "liberación de casetas", la mayoría de los automovilistas pasó sin pagar; algunos hasta sonreían al grupo de estudiantes y campesinos, otros tocaban los cláxones en señal de aprobación.

Un número muy reducido optó por bajar el cristal e insistir en pagar su caseta, mientras con miradas serias recriminaban la movilización.

On a brighter note, my buddy who lost his bike in the fire last week (pic was posted a few pages ago) just got diagnosed with Dengue fever. You remember him, Bob. He was the guy who was talking with us in the underground parking lot at the Rivoli.

Oh, and did I mention we've got a hurricane warning now?
I remember the look on Julio's face Maybe you should tell the story about the guy that got Herpes in Puerto Vallarta, oh, oh wait , maybe not, forget that story

I remember your buddy, hope his bike was insured and the dengue is mild.
I gather the hurricane lost some steam when it hit the Yucatan and I traded your seal skin boots for a seal skin g string, hope it fits

Between you and Bato I don't who to trust! LOL!
Ernesto dumped a lot of water here, still windy and it looks like a weekend outing with the Mystery Rider is iffy.

Que dijo una tabla a la otra tabla?

'Tabla tu mama.

Good to see el Bato esta en la casa sano y seguro.

Hey JD, remember that road we took to skip the toll when we came back from the ride with the Mystery Rider? The one that skirted the river?
It's flooded from Ernesto. A lot of water moving through.

Been using Google Earth to study the route you sent Paul for October.
Nicely done, sir! Have ridden several sections of it and am looking forward to Rayones and Galeana on the north end and Jalpan de Serra further south.

Hey Eakins

Cobi and I attended the game at Wembley Stadium yesterday It was a great game and the atmosphere was incredible. 80,000 plus in attendance. Viva Mexico. A well deserved win.
