What a ride!!
Well, it's just that I'm a bit OC about weight! LOL! I'm the kind of guy that spent about $1,000 total on an Akropovic exhaust and an Antigravity battery just to lose 15 pounds.I prefer "stout" to heavy. You never know what lights people are going to hang on those light bars! LOL
Nice to see at least some of my parts get to travel. I ill probably be too old by the time I have time to do something like this.
You clean up pretty good!Captain's Log. Stardate 39. Mexico and Central America with Ms. Wee. 2 1/2 month sojurn on my 2018 DL650.
Another great day in Mérida. Met the family of a woman I've been skyping with for a year to practice English for her and Spanish for me. They took me out to breakfast to a ritzy hotel, to include a surprise birthday cake. I know I was probably mixing up my articles, prepositions, and pronouns:-O, but we were able to communicate.
Very educated people. Maggie has a master's in biochemical engineering, and her sister got her masters in psychology in Scotland, and her father was an electrical engineer.
Off tomorrow for a 2-3 day grind on the autopista (like our interstates, 2-4 lane) to Morelia. 1,002 miles, where I'll go back to my old school for another three weeks of Spanish classes, to include a week living with a Mexican family there. It's called a homestay. Talk about total immersion, yikes!
Thank God for trusty Señorita Suzuki. She hasn't failed me yet. Go Ms. Wee!!!!!
And yup, that birthday cake represents Medicare in three days!! Oh joy. Now on "gummint" health care. View attachment 269345 View attachment 269347 View attachment 269348

Well now I suppose so. LOL! I figured it was going to be cold here, but didn't expect this. I'm actually extremely fortunate. Finished an extreme grueling but great riding day yesterday thru the Sierra Madres, really remote twisties, and arrived in Creel/Copper Canyon just before dark and it was getting really cold. Just as I found a killer hotel and parked Ms. Wee Strom it started to rain. When I woke up to snow, they were able to extend my room two more days, so I'm "muy comodo" until the snow clears and I can start down to the bottom of the canyon for my two night stay in Batopilas.What an adventure. Is snow common this time of year there?
Well thank you Motorpsych! Anything to further the Wee Strom community! Next year planning on Peru. Cheer to all. Joe
