    Hi All, I have posted a couple of times. I figure I will start and maintain a thread as I go about my project. A few things about this project: I have some mechanical experience, but never rebuilt or restored anything, or worked on a bike. This is my late father's bike since it was new. 1969...

    We found this restaurant in Linares on our last night in Mexico for our obligatory cabrito dinner. They had to send out for our cervezas micheladas. From here we rode home by way of Montemorelos, China, Reynosa, McAllen and Corpus Christi. Four days, 1250 miles, about $250 apiece.
  9. MotoDiscovery Tour Group, Mexico Trip 2/08

    We ran into a tour group from MotoDiscovery (based in San Antonio, TX) finishing a 10-day Central Mexico tour. We saw them leaving Xilitla the day before. Nice bunch but since we were riding faster and farther, we didn't stick with them.
