We are three adrenaline enthusiasts, and our plan was to leave the city of Querétano towards Sierra Gorda and opt for some of the less-traveled roads. In this first journey, we visited Peña Miller, Peña Blanca, Bucareli, El Paraíso, Pinal de Amoles, and San Joaquín. With a smile on our faces and the convenience and comfort of the Fuel gear, the trip was a lot less heavy. Thanks to our friends of Lucky Lions who helped us in this trip! We had a firm idea: Leaving the Main Road.
"Crossing rivers is easy. Navigating them on a motorbike? Not so much"
You and the river
We looked for a good place to leave the bikes, and we started walking, and found our truck there in the middle of the river. El Pollo began to make a campfire, and we had a big rock to lean on and a kind of a small island where we put up our tents.
Leaving early in the morning, we realized that the brakes were damaged due to the truck's effort the previous day. In fact, they broke because the metal went from piping hot from the friction and then went straight into the water.
"Whistling in the hammock"
We continued fairly early. Both the XT and the Ranger worked like a charm after the repairs the day before, and the Gs didn't stop until we came to the convent and mission of Bucareli, where we started to descend.
"Not all is suffering"
Getting up after a night of sleeping in a hammock was complicated. We thought it would be hot all night, but the early mornings can be very cold. Even though we had sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, and the hammock, it was not enough.
"Let's get lost"
This time our hammocks were reinforced against the wind, and we could relax and sleep very well. We were tired, though, and had little fuel left, so we decided to head back, even though we wanted to continue and never return to our daily lives.
