Three Wyoming boy's ride Baja
 
I really enjoy reading all the ride report posted hear, but have been to lazy to write my own, until now. So here it goes.
<o:p> </o:p>
Jwats, advjackass and I loaded the bikes and headed for the border.
<o:p> </o:p>
The plan was simple drive to San Felipe ditch the truck at friend’s house and ride.

No pictures, I was having a hard time getting into it, maybe it was work I should be doing or my family I left behind, not sure.
We toke it easy down to Alfonsina’s, stop for lunch. Then headed to see are good friend <st1:place w:st="on">Coco</st1:place>. After spending a good hour wandering around looking for a wiring short <st1:place w:st="on">Coco</st1:place> had in his lights. We said are good bye’s and hit the road. Are plan was to fuel up some ware along the way and hit the window rock trail until it got dark and sleep, get up and ride into BOLA for breakfast. But there was no fuel to be found all day. So we headed to Hyw 1 to get fuel. By now it was getting late and the Husaberg had developed a fuel leak. So slab it to BOLA to look things over in the mourning. We were about 30 miles out BOLA, the stock head light’s on the bikes ( 1.5 candle power ) wasn’t cutting, off the main road we went in search of a campsite. About 2 hours later it started to rain and did so on and off all night. I’m glad to report that my bivy only leaks in one spot

Day 2<o:p></o:p>
We awoke to more rain; we pack up fast and headed into town. Got breakfast and had looked at the leaky tank. Joe managed to get most of the leak stop, that will have to do, it’s time to ride

<o:p> </o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Headed out to get fuel, shortly found that the power was out, no fuel. No choice but wait. About an hour later we were fueled and headed out of town. Today’s plan head for San Francisquito, eat lunch fuel up and hit the hidden trail to San Ignacio. <o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Made a detour at car door corner, which should be renamed trailer fender turn as the car door is no longer there.

Fang
 
We were cruising the 22 day Trail having a great ride & thought we would stop in Punta Prieta for a bite to eat it was about 11:30 A.M.,when we were so graciously met by Fang [our self imposed mascot]. A more pitiful mutt never lived. Immediately Berg warmed up to him, I was in fear of a dose of rabies or worse, you could almost see mites & ticks polevaulting off this poor excuse for a dog. After breakfast, outside we went for a smoke, a kind hand from Berg & he took to us and followed us across the Highway to the grocery store. We were in need of large quantities of agua. The fence around the store was there to slowdown theft I am sure, however we soon found out that Fang was not welcome inside that fence day or night. The dog recieved a verbal pummelling in spanish from the heavy set female proprietor. Out the gate he went back across the street & waited patiently for Berg to return for a photo session & sugar. The hounds in Mexico are an ugly bunch & poor Fang was no different. He was a gentle soul full of humility, probably wondering if his next human contact would be a pet or a hammer. I wonder how the Carna asada will taste after Fang passes?

Dang man, I'm at the end already? Faster, slackers!

advjackass 03-26-2010 07:57 PM

my version of days 1, 2, 3. Berg you still have to finish.
 
i have posted this on cafehusky, but berg recomended i post it here as well.

after a long winter in jackson hole, wy. nothing says spring like our annual trip to Baja. this year there were only 3 that could make it and 3 different bikes. me on the 08 te 450, Berg Briggs on the 08 ktm 530, and joe wastabaugh on the 09 Husaberg 450. we drove tosan felipe and arrived on friday, a week before the 250. the plan is always the same, ride until we want to stop and try to ride new stuff.

Day 1

no photos, but we left a little late as some of the party enjoyed the tequila festival a little too much. we rode to gonzaga and i was amazed at how much the road had progressed in a year. the pavement will soon reach gonzaga and change that place forever, or at least until the next hurricane. the plan was to fuel up at the pemix there or at Coco's and then ride the no tracks trail and window rock trail into Bay of l.a. the pemix was out and so was coco so we were forced to slab it to the Bay of l.a. it got dark and we decided to camp for the night.

Day 2
about 3:00 a.m. it started raining and continued through morning. we found a break in the storm and broke camp and rode into the bay of l.a. for breakfast. joe on the Husaberg is using most likely the only Safari tank in the u.s. on his bike and was having a few issues with it leaking so we adressed those before heading on. as we were leaving the sun appeared. we were heading for san fransisquito for lunch via the green door or car door trail.

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...00_Rjr9e-L.jpg

the trail was different as was all of baja i saw as the heavy rains and hurricanes changed the terrain. we made it to san fransisquito and had a wonderful and expensive lunch, topped off on fuel and the set out to ride something we had never done before, the hidden trail, or some call it the malcom smith trail. it heads due south and fallows the coast and then cuts back twards 1 about 15 miles south of san ignacio.

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...70_8jUHe-L.jpg

i am always amazed at how one can be in the middle of nowhere in baja and find a perfect slab of concrete. i got dark so we found a nice slab and set up camp.

Day 3

we woke early the next morning an continued on. we followed the beach for a while and came across a full whale skeleton.

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...65_xYKvf-L.jpg

the trail soon turned west in the direction of 1

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...54_WuLgZ-L.jpg

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...93_FNcR5-L.jpg

we stopped for directions at a school

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...99_kzf4m-L.jpg

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...71_i7YfL-L.jpg

figured it out and headed for san ignacio. we had a late lunch and discussed our options. most years we like to stay for at least 2 weeks but Berg is making racks for wolfman luggage and we all had to pitch in to help him fill the orders and free up some time so we could do a ride. check out his website backroadsmoto.com. we had limited time and decided to cut out the bahia tortugus section as we wanted to try a trail that was suppose to be tough according to gaspipe. so we fueled up and headed out to the whale camps. we like kyuma, because the food is always good and the camping is cheap.

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...18_7FRcw-L.jpg

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...62_tZMhQ-L.jpg

we try to travel as light as possible and every year we try to cut out what we do not need. i think i am about as small as i can get.

i forgot to mention the LTRacing suspension is spot on perfect for me!!!:applause::applause:

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...67_yTh8Q-L.jpg

http://advajckass.smugmug.com/Other/...57_7EeSw-L.jpg

that is it for now, but more to come, including the husky almost burning to the ground!!!

JKL 03-26-2010 09:25 PM

Sorry I could not make it down to Baja this year to bump into you guys.
Saw you at Rice and Beans and at the end of 22 day trail 2 years ago.
Nice pictures and good riding!
