San Diego to Cabo - March/April 2013
 
Hello fellow Baja lovers,

We're making a run down to Cabo in April 2013. Basically following with Baja 1000 course with changes to avoid the difficult parts. Who likes 50 miles of whoops? We plan on about 200 miles per day and are doing about 90% off-road. It should take us 5 or 6 days to get to the tip, depending on the route and, like real men, we are riding back as well.

Currently there are three of us that are committed but the more the merrier! I'm cross posting this on another site and am receiving some additional interest. We are doing this on Adventure bikes, 2 KTM 990s and 1 BMW GS. All riders welcome as long as you like tacos and beer and have a good attitude.

I've spent a lot of time in Baja but have never made a trip this far south. I'm already excited and it's 4-5 months away!

Please reply to this thread of send me a PM if you are interested.

UPDATE: Dates are now firm, 4/6 - 4/20 (might be back sooner).

don't miss cabo pulmo! THE coolest spot to chill down that way.

No baja trip is complete without a stay in Loreto. The Posada de las Flores hotel is very cool. Good place to sip a few cervezas by the rooftop glass-bottomed pool.

I think I may be in for the ride!

Multiple ways to get from San Ignacio to Insurgentes on many different race routes over the years. Recently they have been going south through San Juanico and then up through La Prisima and then through Loreto and back to the Pacific through San Javier. It's a little rough for the big GS but if the rider can hang in the cobbles and sand it is some of the best stuff in Baja.

Hummmmm.....
 
Sound like a great trip for spring break
I am not sure if I can do 90% dirt :eek1
I will have to hone my dirt skill this winter and get back with you.

I'm in!
 
This ride is on my list. I have got the bike KTM 990R, I'll open the time and make up with the wife when I get back. Currently I live in the Northwest, but I have brothers in San Diego I can launch from. Tell me, what are the plans?

Baha Ride.
 
Hey Steve,
Just got back from a weekend there. down to Mikes and back.
I ride a F800gs. How are you setting up the route for bigger bikes?
We did a trail called Simsons Ranch that leaves the back way out of mikes and it was very very hard on the 800s, but we did it..little plastic lost in the meantime..

Regards Dominic

Did you go up through Simpson's from Trinidad or down through Simpson's from Mikes?

I want to do this ride but am wary about the big bike issue and the routes. I have an XRL650 and a GS1200. I'm a competent rider and strong . Is the 650 more suitable?
