Welcome to México again. Have a nice trip through my country. I have a friend in Tehuantepec. I like Puerto Escondido, the beach Zicatela.
I have ridden from Huatulco to Acapulco and there are many beauty beaches between those places
be careful

Riding Buds

This is Óscar R. Benavides, President of Peru 1914/15 and 1933-1939:



So what? What does a former President of Peru have to do with this?

His grandson, Francisco Benavides, below, and I rode together on the way to Oaxaca. While I stayed in Oaxaca, he went further on to San Cristóbal de las Casas for the Mexico BMW rally. After the rally, Frank came back to Oaxaca and we rode north to the border.



One of the nicest guys around, excellent rider, good story teller, and quite often hilarious
I'll introduce you to a few more equally interesting riding buds as we move along...

Ralph, from Anniston, Alabama. He also rode south to attend the BMW rally in Chiapas. Whips out his pipe at almost every stop. Which is fine by me, in that Ralph's pipe reminds me of my Uncle Charlie, whose pipe filled with Borkum Riff is one of my favorite memories of family visits to New Hyde Park, Long Island, back in the day.

Ralph owned the best "semi-vintage" motorcycle of our small posse. He takes care of that bike like a Swiss watch.

Great thread Bob.

Michoacan, Guerrero, Oaxaca, and Chiapas are my favorite states in MX.

Missing MX in Peru.

This photo is a bit of an optical illusion:



Along with Ralph, on the left, this is Big Jim there on the right (he's 6'6", at least). They're the only real people in the picture.

I took this in a coffee house in Veracruz, sitting Ralph and Jim against a black and white wall poster. I greyscaled the photo to make it look like they were sitting in the crowd when the poster photo was taken.

Along with Frank, Ralph, and Brian, Jim was also a rally rider traveling via Oaxaca. He used to guide for MotoDiscovery, but hasn't done any tours in a couple of years. Has a mental library of jokes that knows no end. Owns a '07 R1200 GSA. He lives fairly close to me here in northeast San Antonio.

Perhaps a little more perspective on just how tall Big Jim is.

Here he is, holding up Túnel Ogarrio @ Real de Catorce all by himself

He probably could have stuffed LeBron, who torched the Cavs last night with 38 upon his return to Cleveland
