Thanks Fais!  I'm trying different settings on Google photos - if the photos show up in my previous posts please let me know. I see them just fine, so I can't tell what works and what doesn't.

Most Mexican cities of any size have walled in motels for the purpose of trysts. Safe from the prying eyes of the wife or the wife's family, a man can drive into one of these motels and not fear anyone seeing the car or the man. Some even have a closable garage you can park a bike or two inside. These motels list very good prices, we've never tried one, but they are there, cheap and walled in.

We're back in the frozen wasteland having spent almost a month and 3,000 miles in Mexico. Great food, great roads, cold beer, great folks. No speeding tickets, no stray bullets.
Imagine a great motorcycle road here in the US - Blue Ridge Parkway, Pacific Coast Highway, Needles Highway South Dakota, or Going to the Sun in Montana. Now imagine no radar, no $500 plus speeding tickets, fairly light traffic that are mostly all also moving along at balls to the wall  speeds. Fantastic mountain or ocean views if you dare take the eyes off the road.
No ethanol either.
We met a lot of genuinely nice people, heard no disparaging words about any wall or our President either. In fact a few Mexicans if they spoke at all about the current political situation, their views were surprisingly unexpected. But I won't get political.
It's a huge investment for us to travel 2,500 miles to even start a motorcycle tour in Mexico. Staying in hotels every night, two meals a day in restaurant, it gets pricey for almost a month. But we had oceanfront rooms with balconies ($75) and ate great meals washed down with a couple of beers or Cuba Libres (rum & coke) for about $40 for two of us with tip. Try doing that in the United States.
We're getting old, but God willing we'll do it again next march.

No ethanol in the fuel and organic is the only food available. In the States 'organic' is a fancy word for 'normal unpoisoned' LOL

I've never ridden Mexico but you describe it a lot like Ecuador and S.America in general. I spent much less on lodging and eating but the rental KLR with gps and gear was $90/day. Totally worth it - i miss the wasther and food daily. Im in NYC for a few days - so grey and dirty. You have me itching para hablar en espaƱol!

Thanks for sharing and glad tou made it safely home to plan the next one  :beerchug:
