Hi Jon! The idea was to be able to pick up my bike! Didn't have too on this trip, no tip overs. Not much water in Baja, we had no crossings, if raining there might be some streams running???
Jesse bags are fine, just don't crash. If you do go down, soft is much more forgiving. You can make the trip as easy or technical as you want. All pavement, mix it up, or heavy on the dirt (sand actually). We didn't have much sand, but its best to know a little about sand BEFORE you get into it.
No security problems, very light traffic, nice roads (better than California), nice people.
