Mostly hard roads. With the wife and gear the big 990 gets to be a handfull at Dakar speeds... Dirt roads are fine though and will take them when ever possible! Just no rocky, rutty, sandy steep mountain double tracks with the wife on the back. Now, when shes at a Yoga class for the day thats another thing! Wheeeeeeee!

You can pre buy hotels from the old government chain, we did that and had some nice places. Bajabound is good for insurance as well. Guerrero Negro is an ok overnight stop. You can pull off the main road and find plenty of places to stop. Loretto is great, seafront hotels at reasonable prices. Don't pass a gas station without filling up, and lookout for the guys with pickups and 50gal drums of gas, they are ok to use.
Do not ride after dark, the animals come onto the road for the warmth.
