As I was returning from Costco in Guadalajara heading south on a 4 line road immediately before the airport at about 120 KPH in the left hand passing lain, I noticed a blurred image fast approaching in the right hand emergency stopping lane. He had to be doing over 160. Yep it was a Bike, at least a 650 and the driver was not wearing a helmet.
Bikes are popular down here and the folks drive them are just and crazy as we were when we were their age, 20 to 40 years of age, and yes many of them hate to wear their helmets. even when they are carrying their wives and/or children with them. and that includes the Americans of like age who I know who drive around the lake at very fast speeds with their pre-teen age children.
I am not judging anyone here, I am just reporting what I see. And I bet if we did not have any helmet laws up north, we would be just as wild.
PS, for those of you, who have never learned the metric system, you had better should you decide to drive in Canada, Mexico or anywhere else other than the states. FYI 120 KPH = about 75 and 160 = 100 mph
