We got lost coming out of Mitlan,Mex and ended up 60 miles in the hills. When we came across this view we figured out something was wrong as we were supposed to be at sea level.
Mike and Ken agreeing they are lost.
Eric lost his clutch cable the other day. Here you see us in our makeshift, sidewalk shop making a new one. That is until I decided it would be better to walk across the street and just buy a new one at the Honda shop. I´m always thinking.
Fixing the broken rack!
Here´s the smoothest part of the dirt highway i told you about.

We ran into these guys at a gas station in Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras. They have a bike club there. We talked for while and were supposed to stay in the same hotel as them but it didn´t work out. They said they have 90 plus in their club.

Tammy West sent this in as she was thinking of Mike Deibert. The character with the ear problem would be Eric, the ear phones in his helmet caused some pain to his ears and he had to remove the ear phones.
