Of course dropping it in a parking lot the other day on its side could have also contributed!












But, I am going to stick with it being Mike's fault!

I headed south to take MX175 west to Oaxaca. Beautiful ride. Of course at 9,600 feet it was raining and 50 degrees and all I had on was wet mesh pants and jacket!

I mostly rode the way I normally do in this type hilly and curvy terrain, Put it in 3rd gear and ride moderately aggressive with very little shifting or braking. Just rolling on and off of the gas! It is an easy way to have a lot of fun without getting tired!

Personally, I like this ride a lot better than Diablo del Espinoza, but that is just my opinion. I encourage you to compare both!

I like these next few! I don't know why they look the way they do, maybe I turned something wrong on the camera.

Tonight's hotel was 150 pesos and it ain't bad at all, plus it includes Wifi! There were no restaurants, so the manager shared her family's supper with me!

Have a safe ride and enjoy Oaxaca. I'll be following you along on this thread, hope you can come back through soon. I'll bet we'll both have some new Harley jokes by then.
Keep that up and I'll be tempted to bring my Evil Machine down there to conduct a mountain riding course.
