I will be watchig this thread- been riding Baja every year since the early 90's. Raced the 100 last year as part of a 3-bike team that included one team of 3-amputees - who all hauled major ass- (All 3- teams finished in top ten spots- I was on the 14X team).
Will agree that it's changed over the years- but there are still neat spots to ride. In May we rode from Yuma, across the Altar Dunes down the mainland to Guyamas. Then took a ferry across to Santa Rosalia and rode back to Tecate.
getting older and just bought a Tiger - its never gonna see Baja the way I like it- but my 450 is always ready to go
