This is this morning after leaving Matehuala. It's about 9:30 am as this was shot.

Got home later this afternoon

This is that twisty stretch on the Grand Funk Railroad, Mx57D, as you are coming to Saltillo where it meets up with Mx40D headed to Monterrey.

I've never seen so much truck traffic on the highway headed north. México's economy is rising. Fast.

When I get home from trips, I get busy with other things and lose the immediate sense of certain things. Hopefully some of the GoPro footage will help me capture and keep the vibe as close to what I felt.

Damn Trice, what have you got packed in there? Dead midgets or a final drive or two for the bike?

We just got back from about 850 miles around Creel..........the only danger was in the possibility of freezing one's bag.

That's exactly why Creel is not a winter sport.

A hearty "you're nuts!"- one of the highest compliments that can be bestowed upon an ADVRIDER- to SjoerdBakker, who is riding from Canada to (where else?) Mexico.

As of last night, he was in Kentucky waiting out an ice storm in Tennessee.

Them Canadian toques must be warmer than the ones we get here in the US.
Heck, maybe they have crash toques (SNELL / DOT approved) in Canada.

Ride safe Sjoerd!

I'll say. We turned back on Jan 7 at Las Polomas/ Columbus in a freezing fog/snow with 2in of snow on the ground at 4,000 ft right on the border. Iced up face shields had us riding with one hand over our faces and one hand on the bars. Didn't seem prudent to ride up to 7,000ft that week. On another note,the owner at the gas station there said a few weeks earlier 4 bikers passed by and returned 3 days later with out their bikes which had been stolen. He was also reporting increased random "narco" roadblocks in the area. Spent the next 8 days DS riding in AZ and NM . Never got above 30's . 1,500 cold ass miles.

Do I feel safe?


Yep!
