Passed thru Ensinada on the way back.
This apparently is the bridge they start the baja 1000 from.
Then went across hwy3 east, saw this on the way.
Spent last nite in Baja as the first, in San Felipe. Met a few other riders. Had a beer with these guys. The one on the left is Steve. ADVer from Tennessee. His brother took the picture. We had some good laughs together & hit it off pretty good.
Steve had already it it off on the trail with his KTM. Extra adventure. Pretty good bash there Steve. Whoh! Dented right thru his bash plate cracked his casing & was spewing oil.
He did get her fixed up with steely putty.
On the way back to Vegas I met the back of a major traffic back up coming into Quartsite. I just hit the passed lane but soon had to pull back in with the traffic bumper to bumper. It was tough to find a lace to pull in. Saw a fellow biker & quickly went to pull in beside hime then saw there were 2 bikers. Oh well no choice now it's 3. Buddy tells me it's just all traffc backed up from the lite a few kilometers up the road. Well i gotta make time. Got a flight to catch. I look over to the side of the road & notice just a ways off the road is an ATV trail. Awright! I head off the shoulder thru the ditch & over to the trail. Well now I'm going somewhere. All the traffic is staring my way with jealousy all over thier faces while I'm standing up bounding down the trail 7 passing them all on my Dual Sport. Yaa!:
I got up to the lites, cut back onto the road & away I went.
Up the road in lake Havasu I stopped at a Wall-mart for some oil, I'm at the cash register & this kid is pointing me out & whispering some thing to his parents. Now they're all lookin at me. So I say, "ya-ya that was me passin everone offroad". The Guy says "Wow you looked just like one of those Dakar rally riders"! Cool!
Next stop, Vegas. Get Suzi back in storage, Fly-home.
