All, thanks for the advice so far, keep it coming! Hopefully, the pavement will be clear at the very least!
Happy: No worries, I appreciate the advice as well. Actually, I have pit support with some friends and family meeting me out there. I was thinking of leaving the day before and camping out there overnight. It would be crazy to leave the day of!
I know the pig can do it but we'll see how I do. Pics below are from Baja 11/13 -11/17/2012. We were doing 150-200 mile days every day and that bike didn't bat an eye. I haven't ridden much this winter since then so I'll be shaking off the cobwebs with this race.
Ride/race report to follow. This has been a fun project so far. I bought the bike as an experiment to see how little I could spend and how much I could do with one bike (the money part should be easy cause I'm broke
). $2,300 on the bike $500 to plate/convert. I'm using Mobil 1 motorcycle oil from Autozone (my KTM would cry, my wallet doesn't), Primary Drive sprockets/chain from Rocky Mountain etc. I bought the Baja Designs race light for the Baja which has been the only real piece of equipment I've bought for it, other than the dual sport kit.
