Having returned from just that ride on Friday ,4 days ago , I can certify that you need to do no push ups at all, just as long as you can manage your bike. I saw all manner of bikes,including fully loaded Goldwings Harlies and Victories ,many hauling trailers, even on the Top of the World Highway.. Your experience may vary of course with weather conditions. I had splendid weather the whole 5 weeks of the trip with only 3 days requiring a short stint in the raingear, but in Alaska some riders who had been there several weeks said they had had nothing but dismal wet weather with only 3 days that it did not rain on them... until I showed up
Now the seasons are soon changing and time to look southward again for warm weather riding.

Great! We've been getting way too much rain down here! Hope it works.

Ah but I would have hired Yolanda the aqua nymph to guide you to new depths

Off He Goes

Our man Slowphil at Casa Tricepilot for a visit.

Harmon's BBQ, of course, and talking to Ray Harmon himself.

Then, wrenching on the VStrom in the 98 degree Texas heat



He's got that Lawrence of Arabia look, don't you think?

He has those Mermite cans on the bike. Very functional.






Making sure good prep before crossing soon at Piedras Negras and heading to Saltillo, then to Zacatecas, then to Durango (hopefully to visit with SR), to Maz, to PV, and then inland to Guadalajara and Ajijic & a visit with Kiko (hopefully). After that........? This is all the plan right now.

He's got a date in Panama in October for the Stahlratte and points in South America.

Slowphil suited up - heading off to Eagle Pass and eventually Argentina and beyond.

Let the Adventure begin

I think I see some nipple. Definitely NOT artistic.


BAN HIM NOW!

What has been seen, cannot be unseen.

I most certainly will do that, I'm looking forward to seeing your part of Mexico
