Trip to Apoyo Lagoon

I was in Mexico for almost 4 weeks. Working on a project.
Didn't even see daylight.

So, I really wanted to ride as soon as I got home.
Got home Friday, Saturday was the day.

GF and I went to Apoyo, Lagoon. I've been there on very few occasions, the place is beautiful.

Before, heading out, installed all the latest farkles on the GS.
Stickers from ADV of course, fender extenders, beak extender and a really nice TT DriRide seat.
The seat increase the height by over two inches.
I'm 5'10", and I don't think my inseam is more than 31".
But, I don't feel unsafe even if just touching with the toe tips.
With GF in the back and the Vario Top cases (they are heavy). the thing is manageable. God forbid doing actual off-roading on this 600+ lbs motorcycle.

So, off we went.

Just witness how beautiful this place is.

GF was happy, we were celebrating our anniversary.

Had to jump into the water. It was scorching hot here.
People looks at us all funny. All that gear in this heat.

Needed a cool one...

and the ride would have been even more epic, if the FD didn't decide to piss the oil all over the rear wheel.
