A daily time share presentation (body snatchers) will kill a day nicely. Lots of good food in PV.

Great show so far, pics are unbelievable . The mag problem has to be a unusual for the Strom.

Hi SR,

I still will make it to Durango, just not sure when though? I decided to ride the coast on my way south and will travel the mountain range on my return.

[QUOTE=lexluther11;23471604]I left San Blass for Puerto Vallarta for a one day stay there then on my way. So the next day when leaving my motorcycle broke down. A few magnets broke off the magneto which in turn damaged the stator. So getting parts in Mexico can be a waiting game, the stator came in one week and the magneto took 2 weeks. So I had a lot of time to take pictures Puerto Vallarta was not on my list of places I wanted to visit because it's a tourist town mostly. But I could of been stuck in worse places so I made the best of it and just relaxed.......and waited

Very nice pictures!! and pretty place to get stranded

How many Kms. in your V strom when the magnets broke?

Hand made tacos........one lady makes the dough, another kneads it and then puts it in a press then hands it off to be cooked.

Lex,
Your photos certainly catch the mood ....great stuff. Too bad about the bike problem, but if you have the time and $$$, it's just a matter of time and delay....looks like you are using the time well.

Great pics!


As much as I prefer the smaller towns north of PV (Sayulita, Guayabitos, San Blas) I love the old section in the south end of PV and could happily spend a couple weeks "stranded" there.
