An abridged version of my Mexican adventure from Jan 3 to Feb 10 2005 covering 11,000 kms starting from Los Angeles. See full set of pics at:
After leaving my truck in LA, this was my general route for the following 6 weeks.
Kids say Yamaha Rules! This is in a town before San Ignacio. Name escapes me.
Me at the mission Mulege
Loretto from the museum at the mission.
Sweet curva peligrosa south of Loretto. Too bad there are so few safe places to stop and take pics. Lots of scenery to shoot, no place to stop.
FZ likes Mexican bike wash. La Paz. 30 Pesos + tip. Good job on cleaning her pipes too!
Todos Santos prior to my ferry trip.
Leaving La Paz on the worst ferry ever... and the last. I was lucky to catch the last passenger ferry on this route because this boat was going to Peru for recomissioning.
Hwy between Mazatlan and Durango. 200kms of 50kph twisties dodging very talented semi drivers and extreme curva peligrosas. Devil´s Backbone... awesome scenery too.
A nice town between Jerez and Guadalajara.
Zacatecas from my hotel room.
