Retired and riding-----I like the sound of that. I'm close

My KLR has 55,000 on it---and if I ever hit the starter button and it failed to start-----I'd
expect the world to quit turning.

I'm in on this ride Donnie

I made a run through town scoping out the hotels, as I was pulling up to the hotel of choice, Dan, also known as Lunatic here on ADV, pulled up on a very tricked out DR650. Within about five seconds, we had decided to share a room. Dan actually klnew me through some combination of following Sheryl and my RRs in Mexico and the Thread I have about her death. He had been over over on the mainland for several weeks and had ferried over to Baja and only had a few more days off before reporting back to work. We had good conversation and a nice meal. Dan, I think the resturant owner give a a 100 pesos coin as change. 100 pesos coins are now worthless! Anyway, we had a enjoyable visit. Dan has a number of good stories to tell, maybe he will share some of them here.

No bad, about $25 for both of us.

Dan was headed to Coco's Corner and I saw a squiggly line following the coast line south out of Bahia de Los Angeles.
