Not sure if I should let Paola know you're there or warn her to stay out of there, she loves that spot. She's an x-ray tech in town and often has dinner at the bar.

For obvious reasons the Hayek bike should have a Moto Guzzi motor.

Very insightful. For this, Salma invites you to her unveiling event.

Everybody else gets an invite to the bike's unveiling

Tip: Do not discuss Diego during her unveiling or you will spoil the mood

Hecho, Trice.
I will try not to mention how I found Tyson, stuffed, and hugging that cognac bottle outside of Alvarado....

I wouldn't do it.

You are most probably doomed.

noshoes - the only problem with Guadalajara is the hotel maids work at night

Hi noshoes,

You'll be fine. Guadalajara is a hoot. Sounds like a fun trip to me. And yes, not having a bike in Guadalajara does sound scary. No splitting lanes with the pizza bikes? Flying and riding around in taxis? What's up with that? Just shoot me if it ever comes to that for me. It's only two days down 15 from the Arizona border. I say fly on the quota. Since November of last year motos pay half price.

Best,
John Downs

Actuallly, going even farther afield, I've had a theory, (untested), that people in general are wary of the wind, and that this fear goes back to our early phylogeny, and is lodged in our lizard brain. The theory is that when we were potential meals for saber tooth tigers, and the like, the wind presented a real danger to us, or any prey for that matter, in that predators will use the wind to their advantage by hunting from a down-wind position where we cannot detect them by smell. Hence we tend to get a little nervous in a wind storm. Especially if we're walking in the woods, where a branch might fall, leaving us for the scavengers rather than the predators. :) Just a thought, and yes, I know it doesn't address your original point regarding health/wind, but a good social scientist might be able to correlate that too. ;)

People who sail, especially racers, would howl at such notions.

Jimmex, if we ever encounter one another on a commercial flight to Mexico we should just act like two Baptists in a package store. If you know what I mean (and I think you do).
