The real reason for this trip...

A year and a half ago I returned from Mexico in Tecate. It was getting late, it was raining, and I didn't see any place to take care of the "permiso temporal de vehículo" for my moto. I was waved forward and crossed the border before I even realized it. Wanted to get to a hotel before the cold and rain got to me and forgot all about the permiso.

Well, this trip I went back with all my original papers on the same moto. I had called ahead and talked to border officials to see if there would be any issues. They told me there wouldn't be.

At the Colombia Bridge crossing near Laredo, there were none. I simply had to cancel the old permiso and purchase a new one to enter right away. No fine, no penalty, nor was I given a bad time by anyone. No problem. FYI.

This time, I remembered to cancel it...

Did you guys stay at the Hampton Inn in Laredo on Wed., July 21st? I was staying there & saw two KLRs in the parking that evening.

Left Fort Stockton, TX 8:15am and arrived Cortez, CO 8:30pm. Bike odometer says it was 691 miles, a new one day high for me. Fun trip, even got cold in NM, awsome lightning, rain, sun, sweeping views...lovely day.

Not many folks out this Sunday morning, the roads to myself...


Finally, a new state!


Leaving Albuquerque...


Heading N on 491 to ShipRock...




Got to Shiprock, whoops! No hotels...another 35 miles to Cortez...rain keeps threatening...hard monsoon rain...but each time I barely escape it...


That puts me at half way home from San Antonio...500 more tomorrow and another 500 the day after should about do it...

Awesome! If you saw a suspicious looking character smoking a cigarette & checking out your bikes, that was me.

I recommend you post your actual photo here so that you won't be mistaken for a bandido in the future.
