Sorry to post back-to-back, but I wanted to add this short post from Saturday when sixteen motorcyclists signed for Daniel Zuñiga´s ride up to La Potenciana on Cerro Turrubares and beyond. His video of this route will be out in a few weeks. (See: Aventuras de un Motero.)
I did not join them for the ride, tempted as I was, because I had the ride with the Honda CB 500 CR group the next day, and I knew it would be too long of a day to take an off-road adventure the day before. Below are two photos of their ride.
I am glad I did not go! It seems it was quite a challenge, full of falls (and probably laughs). I heard even the Tornados fell going down a steep, rocky slope.
In any case, I joined the group for breakfast, meeting them in Ciudad Colon, and riding to La Choza de Doña Emilce with them.
I was delighted to meet my Facebook friend Jim JS, who has always supported and encouraged me on my Honda Tornado.
Here is a video clip which shows the lovely route 137 and the group.
After a stop in San Pedro, I rode ahead to take a video of them on their way to San Luis. I waited for almost an hour in the hot sun, moving waiting spot three times. 🙂
When I first called, Daniel said they were waiting for a few to come who had had trouble. ¨Ya casi,¨ he said. So I waited. After too long, I decided to call Erik, and he said they were already in San Luis. It seems I had gone beyond the turn, or something! Damn!! Hahahaha!! Typical situation of mine. All I can do is be amused with myself.
I was, however, happy to ride route 319 because I wanted to check out the Dunlop Mixtour tires on easy gravel. I had remembered my frist trip on Cerro Dragón down to La Legua had been with these tires, before I put the Motoz Tractionator Adventure tires on. Piece of cake!
Each time I glanced at the mountain, I thought of them up there.
Anyhow, I had a short and sweet ride and was able to rest a bit before going to see live music at La Terraza in Atenas at 4 p.m. I love living in a retiree community because the live music starts so early! 🙂
I am living the most amazing life, and, needless to say, the best par of it is
