We're having connectivity problems again tonight.

We're in Aguascalientes.

We rode about 325 miles today; some of it in rain.

I'd like to leave this now and try and upload photos!

No, that's not me. My used car lots were in Long Beach and Downey, I retired in 2004.

Thanks for following along.

Gomez Palacio to Aguascalientes.

A few mountain passes, lots of tolls. Some rain in the high mountain pass.

Big miles day considering we started out pretty late. Still we stopped before dark, just happened upon a 'Hotel' sign and pulled in. Boy is this place slick! It's obviously a 'love motel', small room with 'strange appointments', small towels. Real hot , hot water though and nicely tiled bathroom. Las Cabanas....yes....it rocks!

That's PESOS not dollars. 36 pesos for a motorbike is.......$2.88! You start the day with 1000 pesos, two 500 notes and you think "I'm rich"...by noon you have changed both notes and are counting down.....you need to go to your stash for another 500 note.
You hand someone a 500 note and they don't blink, it's just $40. Doesn't go far at a gas station getting fuel for two bikes.

Nice old bar in the bar next to our hotel. In the UK we call this a 'knocking shop'..a place were you can go and pick something up and get laid basically.

The mountains were magnificent today. They were stacked up all around us for hundreds of miles, we even got to go through them a little.

There were groves of the largest Joshua Trees I've ever seen.
Huge compared to those we see California's National State Park, Joshua Tree.

You must know by now that I am taking these pictures on the fly.....that explains a lot.
