Greetings from central México. Giving up my sailboat and going back to motorcycles. Rode Bultaco's for a lot of years as a kid and Moto Guzzi's and Ducati's as a middle ager. Have had four cruising sailboats... last one now for sale in La Paz while I snuggle with my beautiful Mexican honey up here in the mountains. After the Ducati 900 SS, the center of gravity on the DR is taking some getting used to. This city is all cobble stones and steep hills, so I have already managed to drop my new baby on her side sitting in front of my apartment....at 69 I'm not strong enough to pick it up by myself... how embarrassing is that?
Anyway the surrounding mountain roads, dirt and paved, are beautiful, and if anyone is up this way, give a holler for a ride companion. Gear is expensive and hard to get here in México so mods will be slow and with many compromises. When I figure out the drill, will post some pictures of this beautiful country. The people here are the sweetest in the world.... come on down to México.
