SkooterG and I just got back from meeting Tony for his Mexico crossing. Tony made up a lot of time on his Coutts to Algodones B2B and it sounds like he's now somewhat back on schedule. He's headed back north to Coutts to finish the B2B2B and BBG3K. Then plans to continue on his 10/10ths. He's got that thousand mile stare, but he looks great, and sounds energetic.
We met up at the indian casino just north of the border:
Then went into MEX for a gas receipt and to sign Tony's witness forms:
We then saw Tony back into the U.S. after which Skooty and I went in search of some real Mexican food. Ate at a little mom & pop taco stand while a somewhat sketchy local "watched" our bikes. He offered us young hookers and booze but Skooty didn't want to lose his virginity that way .
This place had amazing tacos:
We saw this place on the way back to the bikes, but they only had girls so Skooty didn't want to go in:
It was great finally getting to meet Tony - that crazy bastard. Good ride for some most excellent mexican food too. And beggers can't be choosers - so it was Gigi for my riding partner. And once again - proof positive Gen IIs are total POS's: Gigi's 08 was puking coolant and his rear tire was down to 10 psi!
And we only had to dodge a few bullets from the banditos.
Fantastic! looking forward to the ride report! Make the report as long as you want to!! Some of us are stuck in desk chairs waiting for the chance to attempt just a fraction of what you accomplished! Congrats!
