Great RR!
That cement you slept on looks pretty comfortable... sleep well? Hehe. But at least it's under cover

Thanks for sharing so many pictures, personal moments, and the text. I am taking a class in Spanish and your writing lets me learn words that aren't in my text books.

glad is helpful not only for the ones that not speak english and still visit the page to see the RR.

my translations are not allways literally but they mean pretty much the same by utilizing some spanish slang.

saludos!

Arte, that late afternoon ride from Alta Lucero to La Esperanza, did they grade the road yet?
The last time I was on it a month or so ago it was pretty bad with a few rockslides and it was washed out in sections.
I am thinking about doing the Veracruz-Vega De Alatorre-Colipa-Naolinco-Alto Lucero-Plan de las Hayas-Veracruz butt buster again this Sunday. That Friday you rode up to Chiconquiaco was sure nice and sunny. It's been nice here lately, but a norte is coming through tomorrow but it should be clear again on Saturday and Sunday.

Hi Mike,
there was still couple areas with some rocks and slides but very passable, there was also one part of the road washed, that made Andres suddendly dissapear from our sight view. The road went down so steep and up very abruptly that did feel like roller coaster!!

Aun habia un par de areas con piedras y deslaves pero pasables, tambien habia una parte del camino deslavada que hizo que Andres desapareciara de nuestra vista de repente. El camino bajaba muy inclinado y subia muy abruptamente que nos hizo sentir comos si estuvieramos en la montaña rusa !

it will be fine for the ride this weekend, the front cold #8 coming will not be too cold, some 55F min
(estara bien para rodar este fin de semana, el frente frio #8 no va estar tan frio, solo unos 12 o 14 grados C como minimo)

Poblado EL HUERFANO (The ORPHAN Town)
Chatting with Mr. Colorado, he tell us that there is a social movement against the high electricity bills on the town and they are in strike not paying the bill, and still getting power.
Platicando con Sr. Colorado, nos dice que en el pueblo hay un movimiento social en contra de las altas cuotas de electricidad y se han puesto de acuerdo para no pagar y seguir aun teniendo el suministro de energia.






after that he tell us that there is a panoramic view balcony that is worth to visit so we headed there for a while
despues nos dice don Colorado que hay un mirador panoramico que vale la pena visitar y decidimos parar alli un rato

This is the view we got there to enjoy. It really took us our breath, it was hipnotizing.
Esta es la vista que pudimos disfrutar. Realmente nos dejo sin aliento y estabamos hipnotizados.





more























A tirolesa really really long long
una tirolesa realmente largisima









gopro camera pictures (Efrain)

HEY! leave him alone, you already have a mule parked down there!
Orale! dejalo en paz, ya tienes tu mula estacionada alla abajo!

I will get him, wtf, I'm tired to walk uphill!

I'm detecting a theme in this ride report. Live to ride and ride to eat. You're riding through some beautiful countryside and the food looks just as good. More please.

Well done / Bien hecho

As ever, Arte took a good ride and nice shots as usual.
In september from 15 to 17 I went to that zone with some friends (tourages, http://motoviajero.com/foros/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2509 ) I visited Zongolica, Verecruz State, Orizaba is near from there.

Como siempre, Arte tuviste un buen paseo en la moto y bonitas fotos como de costumbre.
En septiembre del 15 al 17 fui a esa zona con algunos amigos, visite Zongolica, Estado de Veracruz, Orizaba esta cerca.

Nosotros estabamos mas cerca de Xalapa, como a 1.5 hrs de distancia, estos lugares son fascinantes no te cansas de rodar y cada vez descubres paisajes nuevos.

Saludos Wolverine.

more dirt and more stunning views
mas polvo y mas vistas espectaculares
















this part of the road e was kinda rough and steep, so one the Efrain's panniers goot loose and fell.
esta parte del camino era algo brincona y muy inclinada, y una de las maletas de Efrain se aflojo y se cayo.













see the Orphan on the background
al fondo se ve el Huerfano






this thing is really heavy after few yards
se pone pesada despues de unos metros


OK, listos para seguir
ready to go!
