Hola Cartel-istan (Mexico)

Leaving today and I'm looking forward to another ride south of the border. The worst part is the slog from Phoenix to Laredo, TX where I will meet some friends out of Austin and ride south. The plan is to do a mix of dirt and road, I'll tag along as far as Real de Catorce (cool old mining town) and after that split off on my own. I don't have much of a plan laid out and rarely do but the general idea is to drift down to Oaxaca and then return along the western part of Mexico. I'm never sure how long I will be on the road but since I am hosting a pig roast in early March I need to be back for that.
I have to brag a bit, I am one lucky guy that has a wife that will let me feed my travel/bike addiction and go on the road for weeks or months at a time.

Adios

When one is no longer married "let" does not come into the equation.

Hola mi amigo. I will post some pics in the next few days, haven't gone through them yet. The K1600 is getting serviced this week in Germany along with fresh tires. She will be all ready for my return this summer. Looking forward to getting back to Croatia.

Looking forward to see you my friend!

Anybody from this forum if you are planning to go this way, pls. let me know, if you wish, and I will try to be as helpful as I can with directions where to go and what to see. Right now I am studying 2 books on old roads built here by Austrians in 18th and 19th century. There are about 10 of those connecting the coast with interior. Most of them are destroyed by bitumen, but curvy with light traffic. Some of the patches in mountainous Velebit region are still unpaved .
Some regions are quite remote, no phone signal, lots of bear, boar, wolfs and other fauna. Flora as well. A lot of history too. I will attempt to ride through all of them and post some pics here. God willing.
