Baja Rally ROCKED! - Great job to Scotty and Crew!


Baja Rally was a blast. Huge accomplishment for Scotty and everybody involved. Great bunch of riders and the Rally Navigator Roadbooks were awesome! (I never miss an opportunity for self promotion).

I was lucky to ride well and didn't have any big navigation mistakes - bike was flawless start to finish.

It was a stacked field and i expected a mid-pack finish. 4th overall was a total shock.

Check out the full Gallery of pics here.

Up till 3:30am the night before prepping Roadbooks (This isn't the awesome fun you may imagine)

Rally Navigator getting some love!

HUGE thanks to my Moto Sherpa Rudy - You are a Rockstar.

Taking the start

Finish of Day 1 with Joe Janas (I have just a LITTLE bike envy!) 12th place on the day.

Start of Day 2

The run to the finish was SWEET - 1.5 miles of dunes. I went over the bars once and dumped it 3 more times in sight of the finish. I was laughing the whole way.

Brent's "unorthodox" approach to the finish line.

Finish Line - 5th on the day and totally pumped. Scotty was a proud Papa as the riders were coming in.

Jeremy (Beechum) at the finish - Took him a minute to find his smile, he was gassed out. Congrats on your finish!

Rudy outside of Lone Pine on the way home - beautiful end to a great trip.

Thanks again - I met a ton of great people, had a blast and came home safe.

Mission accomplished.
