Safe riding y Suerte!

Im in Vencie Beach CA, and will make a move to San Diego and then on to Mexcio very soon.
hey Sean, see my earlier post quoted above. Narrow Baja roads ... I've seen a few cyclist's run into the ditch ... sometimes there is no ditch!

Baja is very quiet now. I was just there last month. Not many tourists to speak of. No danger from the Narcos, military or Police there.

Sounds like Venice Beach agrees with you. My old stomping grounds from the 60's/70's. I know well the "Travel Blues", having been on the road in my youth off/on for seven years ... most of the time in Latin America.

You can go two ways down there ... 1. hit every GringoTenango along the Gringo trail and hang out mostly with other tourists (Euros, Brits, Yanks, Kiwi's Aussies, et al) ... or 2. go native, learn the language and go to work. Staying busy really helps cure the blues. Plenty of opportunities.

I started an import business. Payed the bills, kept me on the road.

Good luck with the bike .... Ride Safe!
