SOS in Puebla, Mexico!
Hey guys, I just went down in Cuatla, Mexico, and am now in Puebla, Mexico, with a dented tank, bent handlebars and break pedal, not to mention a banged up knee and shoulder. Italiko mechanic told me to ride to Puebla because there'd be a honda cycle dealership here, but it's not looking good. Any ideas/help? Who's been here before?

Btw I'm on a 2003 honda shadow spirit. Seems like it might be running hot since the fan kicks on more, but the temp light hasn't come on at all.

Not sure what you're asking. Do you want to know if the bike is ok to ride? Are you looking for a mechanic in Puebla? I'm asking not because I know of one (although Puebla is huge, and there'll be lots of Honda mechanics there), but because I figure if I'm confused maybe others are as well.

My general approach is that dents and bents and dings, whether on the bike or on my poor frail body, are ok. Leaks, blowouts and systems failures are not. In the former case, I ride; in the latter, not.

Hope that's helpful, and best wishes for speedy recovery (or recoveries).

what altitude are you at? if your high this can cause heating/cooling problems.

if bike runing ok then find a guy with gas welder and bits and bobs of metal. do a 'bush' repair and wait till your in a better town.

I'm in Mex City and I know a few mechanics here who could help you. If you can make it into the city we can put you up for a few days and help you sort things out. I also know a good doctor. Garry
