SR, nice to see the pic of me riding through Xalapa with Craneguy turned out so well.
3rd in your sequence. 4th one was the next weekend, in Cardel.

Meanwhile, nothing says fun like being balls deep back in the sierra!
Somewhere out there, there is an ocean...Somewhere closer, there was an ocean



Hey Craneguy, I finally found out where this badboy lives. He was asking about you. He's getting a little skinny.



This is what crowd control looks like in the sierra to keep the lemmings and curious ADV riders away from the edge.
Nothing says fun like being tangled up in rusty alambre de puas before a few thousand foot drop! Hope I can get
a close up of that landslide on the mountain some time.



La casa del Padrino...se llama Marlon to you.

I have a lot of groundwork to do and was hoping that one of you out there could give me some leads.

Thanks,

Hello , Hello RMO !!!!! If you cannot make it on the motorbike and have to resort to kombi then
remember in Mexico city there exist 2 main bus stations ......... 1 services destinations north of Mexico city.
The other called " Tapo" services destinations to the south of Mexico City . HOWEVER, there is a new bus station at the airport terminal in Mexico city. (nice premier class buses with wifi and snacks) For sure you can leave there direct for Puebla without getting a cab all the way to Tapo bus station . Do your homework for whatever best suits your desires. "Capu" is Puebla's main bus station . http://www.capu.com.mx/capu/ .

Another Positive

Here is more on the the topic about riding in Mexico from AnjinSan who stayed with us. (http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...810189&page=13) Read his ride report - very well done and a different perspective about North America.

"Tom: yeah, at the moment of this writing we are out of Mexico and even though I recognize that it might not be the same for everyone, for us Mexico was just very nice and full of nice people that left us a with a wonderful impression. Writing the ride reports for those parts of the trip makes me think that I would go there again, someday, somehow."

Will be in Laredo on business tomorrow and expect to cross the border and spend the afternoon in Nuevo Laredo. If anyone is there and wants to get together for an Indio or 8 then drop me a line.

I'll be riding in Hermosillo tomorrow at lunch time for a meeting. A chance to split lanes by following the pizza delivery guys. Hermosillo drivers remind of Boston drivers. Yeah, that bad.
