Wow! Just some great photos Amigo! Very impressive!

Sorry to see that Schizz fell ill. He looked out for me when I fell ill a few months ago near Austin and while we disagree on some things I will never forget that he was there for me.

Carry on!

Nah. The fella that dropped smooth outta the sky in the official green Tshirt and carrying a walkie talkie said we were cool. Or going to jail. One of those. "No fumar espanol." And anyway, it apparently didn't say anything about 2 wheelers and we were on the "road"......-ish.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Nice photo essay SOG! What you have done though is reinforce my belief that the Strom and I need to stay firmly on-road.

That said, I may ride up a volcano on Monday. Farewell dear friends...

Well, I can tell you the best two accessories to carry with you if you do attempt shit that is obviously foolhardy to do. Like roads that are just squiggly dotted lines on an INEGI map. Two 6'5" mechanically gifted nephews who can actually ride like you just think you used to be able to ride. They nurse-maided me off mountains three times this trip.

And BTW. As old as those freely available INEGI maps are, they were the best routing tool we had for dirt roads.

Oooh. Here's a topic for us. How many of y'all have experienced what I have come to call mountain fever? I got it day 3 of this trip. Came on in the afternoon and stayed with me to Tolantongo. Very debilitating. Gone by the next morning. I have had it before and it can happen on paved or dirt but I know it has something to do with heights. You just suddenly and without warning loose your equilibrium....or something..... and get this feeling that there is a giant magnet on the cliff side of the road trying to suck your bike over the edge. Takes forever to get over it if you try to ride through it but then it is gone and you are back to just normal blood curdling appropriate fear levels.

I've had it on The Devil's Backbone in Utah. Before I got across that tightrope I had decreased in speed from 80 to 10 and I still wanted to be crawling on my belly. A buddy of mine regularly gets it on The Black Canyon of the Gunnison but only traveling north to south. You just want a helicopter to pick you up and get you off the mountain.

It will flat-ass slow you to a crawl. I wouldn't have cared if there was a rock the size of a washing machine in front of me on the Rick's ditch side, I wasn't going over to the cliff-side rut. lol

Found another pic of Rick's. Don't know how I missed a driveway pic of El Oasis.
