Inspirations? Mexico 5 months 2011

Photography and Journey: Mexico.
This was our 5 months touring of Mexico, for those seeking inspiration, Mexico was wonderful to us, Baja, Copper Canyon, Mazatlan, Guadalajara, Mexico City, to Yucatan, all the fascinating Maya ruins, 10 days Belize, Chiapas and Lacandon, Pacific coast north to Acapulco and finally Oaxaca. The journey pages contain KML-tracks/WPs for download.

You can do one of the 5 principal mountain routes here in Veracruz.
If you need maps and maybe a meet up, just let me know.
I have plenty of time off during the next few weeks.
A little cooler in the higher elevations but the state line area of Puebla-Veracruz offers some very good mountain riding. Most people miss it because they stick to the coastal areas.
Send me a PM and I can email you routes, maps, pictures, etc...

Guy, Ok, just give me a little advance notice and I will clear the decks of work so I can spend some time showing you the mountain routes. It is better, actually, if you stay in Teocelo, Xico, Coatepec, Perote, or maybe Xalapa rather than the port here. Those locales are much closer, much cheaper, better food, and much more ambience though a little cooler temp wise.
I can easily ride up to meet you and that way you don't have to get up too early. Perote has one very clean and tidy and cheap hotel that I can recommend, and there are a few in Teocelo, Coatepec, Xico, etc... as well.
I ride an F650GS twin, as well in case you need something.
