Venturing beyond the highways, exploring down the byways and tracks, up into the hills. That's motorcycling to me; thanks for sharing your adventure.

Hey MikeMike!

the appointment is for Oct 2013, and this time considering to do a toruing route instead a race, and including many paved roads to make it more interesting and atract more riders and cover more areas with sights worth to see.
Hopefully as you mentioned, you can engage all the riders and people you know on this next touring ride.

Andres is working on the plan already

Me too! Although thanks to MikeMike "fixing" my bike suspension and a new set of tires I might consider leaving the slab next time.

On my ride home yesterday, my shortcut around Puebla was closed so I rode dirt and gravel for about 10k. Absolutely no problem at all. Happy days!

And when most of the riders returned, we got prepared for the picture. We were already in a hurry, since after the ceremony for the trofeys, we would start riding back to our home, and it was a long long ride of 700 miles yet, and it was noon time already....












and right after the winners annoucement started, with the official Master of Ceremonies: Andy



the local authorities and most representative citizens of La Esperanza where delivering the trofeys and the awards to the winners.
