Problem there is I bought the bike used and they were on it and I don't know for how long. They looked pretty new indeed that's why I set out with them on. I'm going to say add 1000 miles then I'll start counting but it's not accurate I'm afraid. I'd say the rear looks half shot right now, the roads are hard on tires. I'm running 41psi back and front, it helps with wear but is a tad noisy and in the soft stuff it's dreadful.

Kindest regards,
John Downs
Thanks John. One of my quests is to meet up with you! I look at interesting things and say to myself "John Downs would take a picture of that"........we are on a real mad rush to get to Nicaragua and chill for a few days before meeting Ludwig and the Rat on 5th Dec.
Do you think it worthwhile to go to Matilda's? We are hippies at heart.
Thanks for looking in, we feel honored

Good idea! Colleen always signs her posts, but I don't. If I can figure color out I will give it a go.

OK. Saturday. The count. La cuenta:

Aguacalientes to Tepiji Del Rio

Gas............................................... 32.32
toll.............................................. ...4.40
toll.............................................. ...4.40
toll.............................................. ...4.32
toll.............................................. ...4.32
Snack, Fanta Orange, Coconut............2.80
gas............................................... 28.40
toll.............................................. ...2.56
toll.............................................. ...2.56
room, strange old place....................24.00
Dinner for 2 and 3 beers, tip..............14.72
Extra beer for room...........................2.80

$127.60 total, 2 bikes, 2 people, includes tips and all. Over budget AGAIN! We feel we are saving money by keep moving south and using tolls. Hopefully the tolls will stop soon and the rooms may get less money. We have only been eating one meal a day, with a snack midday. We have been making our own breakfast and we still have supplies on hand.
We've been doing big miles days too. I think our goal of $100 a day will hold up once we relax and get in to a lower mile style.
Having the 5th Dec meeting in Panama is just tricky, we just want to get close and then relax.

Last night at El Oasis the barkeep brings his scooter right in the door



Midday snack. The girls just love messing with the sill old Englishman



We have an awful lot of Pemex station pictures, it's about the only time we stop! This will change next week, we promise. Colleen is super happy on her bike though, she can ride 200 miles non stop then say "we need to do another 100 at least don't we?"



Gas station landscape, not too shabby



Locals at work and play. We had to wait for this train to pass and the truck and Bovine just came up the track too!



Go to the start of a high pass and this guy was on a cruiser motorbike. He helped with directions then told us "it's going to be cold over the pass"......it was....and it rained...hard.



Cruiser guy



The Federales set up underneath bridges and some people are stopped, it's strange. They don't even LOOK at us, I mean at all.



Stormy sky with ominous black birds

Now we move on to last nights Hotel. The LOVE hotel. Las Cabanas.
I've spent a few memorable nights in various motels and this is just one of them. Let's just say we had a good time and leave it at that.
This is the first thing you see when they show you the room....I'm like...."rooms fine, we'll take it"

Punk Rock clerk, just my kind of youngster. We hit it off well, he showed me the right room .....then showed me where to park



Typical bed shot of our arrival



Great room in the corner with super parking, that's James on Dr. Black



Las Cabanas, inside the courtyard, very discreet and hidden from the road, I love it!



We had five days laundry, Colleen asked, they obliged. So Colleen did our laundry whilst I prepared the room

El Oasis, it sure is Centro Nocturno.



Fabulous window treatment at Las Cabanas, this shot inspired by John Downs and his detail photo's



James with local 'talent' at the El Oasis. There were various shapes and sizes of talented females.



Carlos pouring Colleen a Whiskee, we got there early and had a few drinks, BUT unfortunately we had to leave as I wanted to get back to the room, I had a lot to do

ADV salute from motorbikes going to Mazatlan for Mexican 1000 mile a day rally. We met them at a toll booth, they were going the other way. We jumped the fence, embraced and parted. just one of those motorcycling moments in time
