  1. 4 AM monday, south side of the lake (San Cristobal Zapotitlan) almost an inch.
  2. Hi Pedro Malo, tried your PM, but it indicates "no permission". Like you I have an RWS 350, that I want to bring to lakeside. Were you able to bring it in? What mode of transportation did you use? Thanks,
  3. I think I may have to get one of the"boxy" types for 4-5k pesos,,,,,although the Barrel types do seem to come with different options,,,as the one below; http://www.liverpool.com.mx/tienda/lavadora-22-kg-acros-rosa-lapc2235br/1029385927?gclid=CJuO55yfuMYCFQUMaQodaMELyA Unfortunately, the height can not be more than 104 cm. Again,,,thanks for your advice.
  4. I am planning to purchase one of these,,Redando Lavadora ; http://www.famsa.com/lavadoras-iem-lavadora-iem-redonda-15kg-rosa-lic15tm-5011.html?gclid=CNjTuMOHuMYCFQqSaQodBPAH1g The size (height) has to be 102 Cm or lower. Give me the Good, Bad and Ugly of it (if you OWN ONE) I wish they had it in black,,,,,but everything is pink, red, babe blue stuff Thanks for your comments
  5. I am in San Cristobal Zapotitlan,,,,,,If you live in San Luis Soyatlan, San Pedro or San Cristobal and have/know a Gardner that you TRUST, please send me a PM. If he does NOT speak English,,,,the better it is (lol)
  6. Maincoons, Behnwau and Kiko (whom I "may" know!!), You can reach me at abadan11 AT Hotmail dot com. I love riding to Mazamitla specially middle of the week (when drunks are working). I like riding with a group (2 people are a group to me). I do "stupid" things when I ride ALONE, and the road is paved without NO topes. I want to ride with bunch of people just to have "MOTO SOCIALIZATION"! So, e-mail me if you are in the mood for one more tagalong. Last but not least,,,,,,we ALL like bikes,,,,let's not worry about speed, skill, age or the size of you know what
  7. Maincoons, I spoke/e-mailed you before about riding with your group. You asked me what type of bike I ride,,,,,and then,,,,,,,, I never heard from you again I only ride fast when I am alone,,,,,,with a group,,,,I am always the trailer. Because then, it is all about "the group". BTW, I have been riding since I was 11 (50 CC Honda trail bike!).
  8. I ride the kind of bike that no one has mentioned here, sports bike. It is what you call Crotch Rocket in the States. I ride it on paved and NON paved roads. The key is the weight of the bike. Sports bikes are VERY light, easy to maneuver and fast as hell. You have to ask yourself, how old am I, how flexible am I, how good am I and what I want the bike for?! Naturally, dual purpose bikes make it much more comfortable to navigate any roads. For me they are not as much fun as sports bikes.
  9. THANK YOU Sonia for putting things in perspective!! I have a house in El Chante and another one on the South side of the lake. My gardener and maid charge me 50 pesos an hour. At my El chante house, I get charged 200 pesos to have my 500 Sqm garden mowed and my trees watered. At my 6000 Sqm garden on the South side I get charges 200 pesos (YES 200) to cut the grass over two days!! WHY??? The Xpat community have not moved in to the South side,,,YET :) Last year I tried to talk to one of my Mexican neighbors in El Chante about his gardener. Interestingly, they don't have the same gardener or maid as all my American/Canadian neighbors. I asked to be introduced to his gardener ,,,,,,he said "NO,,,you guys ruin all the gardeners and maids,,,,nobody wants to work for Mexicans anymore Minimum wage is 60 to 70 pesos ,,,,A DAY,,,,NOT AN HOUR,,,,I buy two LARGE bags of fruits and vegetables in Jocotepec for 80 pesos.
  10. Joco is right,,,, I live on the South side! I also have a house near Joco. If you give me DETAIL info as to what you are looking for,,,,I can ask my Mexican friends about rental. How much? What size? How long? How many Pets? Obnoxious pets or well trained? :) I live on a 2.5 acre land in front of the lake (I think I spoke/e-mailed you before)! If your Spanish is decent and your "attitude" is to "assimilate", you would never again think of Ajijic or it's surrounding area (lol)
  11. Bdmowers, As Sita above has mentioned, he (Glenn aka "George") does not have a boot at the Tuesday market. The best way is to contact him using his e-mail gksedona@gmail.com However, he usually hangs out on Tuesdays at the organic market. Sita,,,,,please tell George,,,,,Crazy Horse sends his regards (lol)
  12. I visit Ajijic's organic market every now and then. Last week, I met a guy (Glenn) who was selling natural deodorant made out of coconut oil and some other "stuff (no aluminum). He conviced me to buy a sample from him,,so I did. I am here to tell you,,,,the stuff WORKS,,,,it is not "perfumeeee" and it dissolves into your underarm in seconds. Being an active guy (I cut my own grass and fix cars and motorcycles),,,,and been know to be stinky from time to time, I tell you,,,,it does the job! You can find him on Tuesdays *usually hanging around) in the area and he looks,,,,,drum roll,,,,,like GEROGE ARMSTRONG CUSTER!!!!! If you put a rebel uniform on him and get him on a horse,,,,,you might just see the arrown protruding from his back (LOL,LOL) Las but not least,,,,i am in no way related to the guy,,,or get any kind of kickbacks from him. I recommend his products,,,,,if it works on "Sometimes Stinky",,,, "Foreign",,,, Men,,,,it will certainly work on everybody else.
  13. Southland, I brought in a 07 Honda "Crotch Rocket" from Cali in 2009. I have been stopped over 10 times for MANY infractions (All of them my fault). I have never paid a peso of mordida and I have never gotten a single ticket!!!!! I understand your position regarding cost and the condition of the bike. Mine had 500 miles and it was $5000. The same bike here in Mexico would have had been 7K with lots of brutal miles. Having said all of the above, I would have to agree with Mainecoons. Having a Mexican plate is the way to go. I have tried to obtain Mexican plates,,,,,,BUT, right now most brokers want to talk "cars" rather than bikes. The fact that the bike is already here, makes it less profitable for them (transport fee).
  14. I recently purchased a very LARGE water front property in San Cristobal Zapotitlan. The boundaries of the lot have fully grown trees (I would say 50-??? years old!!). We are talking about as many as 30 trees (maybe more). I am looking to hire someone to trim these trees. They may need a “Fire Department type” ladder (LOL) If you can recommend anyone, it would be greatly appreciated. One of the trees lost one it’s branches causing serious damage to a section of my property wall! Thanks,
