The Seldom Seen by Gringos…San Cristobal area

The Seldom Seen by Gringos…San Cristobal area

One of the truly fortunate things about meeting up with so many “local” motorcyclists is that not only do I get insights into daily family life and the cultures of the places I am staying, but also locals want to show me their best roads / views / etc.

One of my favorite things on this trip is taking off the laden Trax boxes

– 42 pounds on the right: 37 Liter Trax box: all things mechanical: tools and spare parts, Hennesey hammock, sleeping pad, sleeping bag
– 38 pounds on the left: 45 Liter Trax box: Daily use items: clothes, computer, shoes, second camera, toiletries, sleep sack, books, princess pillow, tarp and U bolt lock for bike
– 22 pounds on the top: 38 Liter Trax top box: bike paperwork, candies for kids, bug repellent, bike cover, maps, meds, jacket, winter hat (bought in Guatemala and which I use surprisingly often!!)

So Carlos takes off on his R1200 GS. Man, is it hard to keep up with him, even with my panniers off. You’ll see in my pictures that it gets even harder once I start riding one handed and taking photos…
