The scenary around Coco was fantastic


Storms are no fun but they offer great picture lighting


The hotels in Bahia de LA are full with dirt riders... and free Margharitas

Since we need to "leverage daylight" for riding, everyone is busy doing maintenance stuff at night


I'm usually NOT a morning person but for whatever reason I was often the first to getup during this trip. View from the hotel




Master Monkey Glue check the result of his work... What? You don't think it will hold???

Monkey was right: it hold the whole trip, giving L*S's bike a Mad Max (or Frankestein) look...


This taqueria was one of the places we ate last night. The beef tacos were excellent and the guy was so nice that he offered us some tequila in 2 small assorted glasses. Again, considering how little they have the generosity of the locals was moving.


He was not there for breakfast but we still enjoyed our instant coffee or cokes with... tacos again!


One more exotic gas station before to hit the road...


Beautiful views again on our way to San Franciscito


L*S with his "repaired" bag


Those cactus are huge


But the most incredible was this flowers bed




As you can see that was pure happiness




We stopped a while to admire the view and discuss with a group of dirt bike riders that we saw again the following days. It was not with this group but an interesting theory of some of us was that: the dirt bike riders don't really like that we are trespassing into "their domain" with our big DS bikes and consider us crazy for doing it...


Doesn't it looks like a turtle on its back?


View on a cactus forest


Admiring it...


... while L*S continues the climb


Then... we arrived in Paradise!!!

Jean Luc, I'm enjoying the trip all over again because of your photos. You've really got an eye for capturing the moment. I'm so glad the rock/paper/scissors match ended with inviting you instead of Turkish...he only takes pictures by moonlight, and you're much more easy-going.

It's called "Siesta time". But it might be also for the unofficial rule of "If you're friend's bike is in distress, take a picture first. Then eventually go help him "

It was only 1PM when we arrived in San Franciscito but for once we were all happy to transgress our rule #1: Daylight=Riding (well, it might be more my rule) and just enjoy the afternoon and night right here. One of our "excuses" was that we had to take care of a pretty serious 2nd dent on L*S front rim:


We started to get ready to work on it.


But we got sidetracked.


It was just impossible to resist to that...


But we better start doing something about it before the be too drunk...


Forget the highly technical wheel builders, the locals can do just as good as a job . Well, maybe not with the ViseGrip... but a big hammer will do!


He did a very nice job and just wanted "a tip" for that! Did I already mentioned how nice the Mexicans are?

Meanwhile the Gringos were in charge of the entertainment and beer drinking business


Cheers to you all ADVriders


Life was really, really good!


But we missed you guys


Well, not ALL of you


Hey, it was not me, they all did it




We had open a tab at the bar and for each beer we were taking in the fridge we would add a little "bar" to our tab on the wall. Being the only customers in the whole place made everything easier. On the morning we counted 46 of these bars . Needless to say we slept very well even though the wind couldn't cover all the snoring.

So, are you trying to say it requires a mechanical breakdown for you to enjoy a little cervesa and a few hours on a beautiful beach.....you're even sicker than I thought. On the PCQ we didn't have a whole lot'a choice. I'm gunna put holes in your tires next time out.
