General Bravo is just off the toll road between Reynosa and Monterrey and was the scene of some pretty stiff fighting between the bad guys and the Mexican Army not too many months ago.

Good to see that things are settling down.

I don't think that there has been any trouble along the toll road for the last 3-4 months.

getting ready to cook those Shirloins!!!

since my tent is the easiest and fastest to set up (I guess ) I was playing with the camera while JC was preparing the grill and the others still puting up their tents...







looks like they are strugling...!



JC got a "special" chair for the ride and that easily fits on his bike.



Actually he just did grabbed the first chair he saw in the morning when leaving his home, and turned out to be from his little ones!!



patience to get there



that grill smoke starts smelling real good.... mmmm



c'mon, I'm starving!!




almost cooked (and dry... )









Santa claus socks..??



Temperature is about 40 F now

I hope that continues to be true. It's getting closer to time for me to get back on the road.

Do not worry. You are welcome in México Centre. The languaje is not problem. If you have problems just you closer a biker and you show him that your bike is broken down and he show you where there is a workshop or a dealership of Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaky or suzuki but almost there are not dealership Harley, BMW, KTM. sometimes the people or bikers help you but sometimes no.
Anyway if need help in Toluca and surroundings just let me know.

Very nice report. And for some strange reason, I've got a sudden craving for a good steak.
