  1. If you buy a BMW F800GS, carry a spare set of steering head and rear wheel bearings with you since the OEM bearings are made of butter.
  2. Nope. Good gps software for here is E32 Cartografica. http://cartografiagps.com/en/
  3. Many Mexicans who are asking for a few pesos are not scam artists. Many are in need of help. I agree that scams seem to be more common in expat areas because of the gringo influx. If you don't want to give a few pesos here or there, then don't. But expats who paint Mexicans with a wide paint brush as scam artists are simply no different than those Mexicans who call expats Ugly Americans. Like the saying goes, when you judge others, you are judging yourself.
  4. A good idea is to take a gps with you for a bread crumb trail for some of the tracks as seen here in red.
  5. Sierra del Tigre is a few thousand hectares of mixed trails in pine forest setting. You will need to ride on the libre to San Cristobal and there you can take the dirt road over Sauz to Teocuitatlan and then an entrance to dirt roads of Sierra del Tigre. ATV Rentals are available in Mazamitla.
  6. Benjamin at Compu Cel in Joco can either repair or advise you. Bi-lingual also. CompuCel
  7. Some 37 yrs ago I took my girlfriend to South Padre Island for a three day weekend. I distinctly remember that the best prime rib I had ever had (up to that time) was at a restaurant by the name of Louie's Backyard. A few months later we married and flew to Zihuatanejo for the honeymoon. But that is another story for another day.
  8. My neighbor saved a Yorkie Poodle mix from the street. The Yorkie Poo has been groomed. She is in good health and all vaccinations have been made by Ladrone. She is about 3 years old and about 7 lbs. She fetches, plays well with other dogs, potty trained, and she is not a yapper. Very calm laid back pup. Looking for a home now that she is healthy and safe off the street. PM me if you want a good small lap dog.

    Will you post the attorney's contact info? The going rate with the LCS lawyer or ABC Legal, Azucena, is about 20,000 pesos.
  10. There is a reason you see scooters everywhere in Jocotepec with smooth brick, paved, or concrete road surfaces. Ajijic and Chapala area not so much with piedra. So drop some coin and buy Japanese, either Honda CGL Tool or Honda Wave with 18" or 17" wheel set. Those small 12" wheel sets on scooters with short wheelbases do not do well on piedra. Japanese motos at this price bracket only cost about 10% more than comparable Chino brands but the Japanese models last forever. Resale values of Japanese brands are far better also. Buy Chino, Buy twice.
  11. No worries. I did not think you meant me, I like diverse opinions but not insults, regardless of the intent.
  12. I stand by my comments. I do not equate human lives with cars. But I get your drift. I own properties in both Mexico and Texas so yes this is an issue for me. We can agree to disagree without personal insults.
  13. Yes the subsidies provided by ACA end next year 2020. That begs the question, how many poor Americans have died or will die from lack of affordable medical care between 2016 to 2020 because their states rejected the subsidies. The new Medicare guidelines in the current proposed budget will cut $1.5 trillion between 2020 and 2029. How will that affect you? This is a valid topic for expats because many still pay US taxes and claim Medicare benefits.
  14. Do your homework. Full Medicaid availability is not equal in all states. Many states refused the medicaid expansion as provided by the Affordable Care Act. Severe limitations and availability for the poor in states like Texas and Alabama. Many other states also.
