South America Blog

   This is the journey I have always dreamed of,  to ride my motorcycle across the Americas. 

   Follow me as I travel south from Texas to the tip of South America on my BMW GS.

The Ride to San Miguel

   From Galeana, Mexico I rode on a road that I had ridden on many times.  I never get tired of this road as it is one of the most beautiful roads in Northern Mexico.  The road starts in Linares and goes to Galeana and then on to Matehuala.  I traveled on twisty roads for about 200 miles at elevations of between 6000 feet to 8000 feet above sea level.  It is a small road with little local traffic.  The mountain valley vistas were fantastic and the temperature was crisp. 

   One thing to keep in mind is this area is open range or free range country.  Therefore, travelers must keep an eye out for wildlife, cattle, wild donkeys and horses which can be on the road.  On this day I saw a lot of, or most of all of these animals along or on the road. I arrived and ended my day in San Migual, Mexico.
