Heading south... hopefully all the way...
 
I'm planning to ride south from the Central Coast of CA in early Nov. Heading down the Baja, ferry across to mainland Mexico, and continue south. How far south...hopefully all the way.

A fun trip. I am a couple of months ahead of you on an 07 DR650 that I rode from Denver. Good luck with the prep.

Me also on a DR. About 10 days out, heading same direction.

Good luck and be safe.

WilderRider,
I'd like to hear from you about any highlights or "must see" places.

Well here is my ongoing ride report. It has what I think so far. Or feel free to PM with questions. It is fun.

I'm leaving Dana Point on Thursday morning. I had a very nice visit with my friend Kay (Julie's mother). Since it was raining lightly, Kay drove me on my last minute errands to the Post Office and to a currency exchange location. With my packing completed, I'm heading down to San Diego.

These pics are from my friend's (Carol & Al) terrace in San Diego. With a spectacular view of the water and its activity, they can also walk to great local restaurants and shops. It was nice to spend some time with old friends!

I'll be back when I have more pictures. But to share my current location, I'm having some enchiladas in Ensenada. I had an uneventful border crossing earlier today...the best kind!

Hey Jim:
Good start so far, love the bike, and now I am subscribed. Looking forward to the posts, which I will pass on to the bunch at the Twisted Shaft MC. Have a safe trip. :clap
