Looks like this would make a good "first ride" for me when I get the KLR.

Yeah jet stars are awesome! If it wasnt for the plane being a jetstar i probably wouldnt have turned around to get a pic of it. I will try to find those coordinates for you.

The route from San Luis to Matehuala had some interesting pemex decorations but this one was the best.

Edit: The jetstar can be seen from google earth at N22 12'45.13" W100 54'52.90"

Arte, excellent report, thanks for posting! I hope you don't mind, I saved some pictures to my hard drive ;-) (with your username and location details in the filename, of course, so I know where they came from!)
