Hey Rapido1,
I can only see the thumbnail (won't load the full size image for me) but it looks like your bike, no?

If you right click the thumbnail and open in another tab it should work. Worked for me anyway...

Glad you're in good with the locals. It's amazing what a free round of golf will do....:)

Hey Reagenn, thanks for the tip! Tried it and still no joy. Wants me to log in to the website again, which I did, but then...still no picture. Hmmm...I'm using Firefox so maybe something up with that? Normally I can just left click on the pic and it opens but this time it just 'spins and spins' and never gives me the full image.


Anyway, it looks like Rapido1 is in good with the ticket-givers and that is never a bad thing when you own a sportbike!

I stopped for some dinner take out, while waiting a local Cop asked if his buddy could take his picture with my bike! I said "sure, for 50 pesos"!

So great to live here with a loud bike, Cops are friendly.

And yes, I ordered the Powerbronze screen to try. Hated the terribly visible black metal mounting brackets. So I ended up just simply sticking it on with 3M heavy duty 2-sided tape, and it worked great! Minimal wind protection, so I it's coming off.

Very cool that the Cops here actually love bikes. Especially anything off-road as Baja is famous for the 1000. It is so awesome to live in a town where Cops are a non-issue - as long as you keep it cool. Loud pipe? Nice!

Awesome man!

I live in California but want to take a moto trip to Mexico, would you recommend or you think a adv bike is more suited?
You say "Mexico", do you mean the mainland or the Baja?

It depends on what you want to do. Baja has a very good asphalt highway all the way down to Cabo. Well traveled by many and totally safe. Many towns along the way to stop and sleep/eat and gas up. A comfortable sport-touring bike best, as 70% of the 1,000 mile trip is on curvy mountain roads. But if you want to explore the Baja off-roading at times, then you would be best on an ADV bike. I'm sure there are a plethora of articles on the subject if you google.
