Day 3 San Ignacio to Loreto. Today would be a short day but not without something on the IT breaking..



The day started out in the town square in San Ignacio


Stopped for gas in Santa Rosalia


Then rolled on through Mulege...




This was somewhere along Bahia Concepcion


A little bit further down the road we stopped at a little place for fish tacos. After lunch we get on our bikes to leave and then Baron forgot something so he goes to put his kickstand down and next thing I know he's laying on the ground. I wasn't fast enough with the camera but the kickstand broke. You can't see it in the pic well but repairs are in order.


The rest of the day was pretty uneventful and we rolled into Loreto in the daylight this time staying at the La Damiana Inn. It was Christmas and one of the only places open for dinner was The Palapa.


The next 3 days were spent hanging out in Loreto but not before making some repairs to the IT. When we arrived at the hotel Baron noticed a new noise coming from the IT. He tore the bike completely apart and finally noticed that the bump stop for the shock had totally disintegrated and was gone. Nothing that some duct tape and double sided tape won't fix! After that the welder made a house call to fix the kickstand.









Stay tuned for a lot more pics as we head west to San Javier, the Comondu's and beyond. And if Baron gets it figured out we'll have some video to post.
