No Baja for me this winter

Family matters kept me at home....

But.....I have been invited by an Inmate to spend a week or so riding around the Grand Canyon at the end of April....so, it is good to have some variety....

KLR,
The broken leg part is OK....the ankle soft tissue damage has left me with a weaker ankle and some tenderness where the hardware is....it reduced my summer riding last year, but I am ready to roll for this season....

Now all I need is less snow and 10' more Celsius

Physio the crap outta that ankle, that's an injury that will take longer than a year to fully heal.

Well, I'm late to this party...

but I gotta say, what an excellent RR from last year. The kind of Baja ride I'd like to do one day.
Glad your ankle is all healed and you're back to riding, been there done that. Ride on
Oh, and I hate soft sand and silt as much as you do. Not fun.=

My affair is with Baja, a unique part of Mexico that offers limitless riding challenges and opportunities. My first motorcycle ride there was in 1995 on a 1981 R80 GS…a month of riding in all sorts of terrain…except in the deep sand...(a type of riding I hate to this day).



The die was cast....momentum was building....and I was once again off for a tryst with my desert affair...
You had me at these two pictures. One of my best friends in high school was born and raised in Ensenada and his whole (extended) family was about the nicest people I've ever met. Baja holds a special place in my heart (as does the girl I spent a weekend with during Christmas break ;) ). I think I understand your passion.

Damn.....it's been two years and I still love reading my ride report....I sit back and think...."This bugger is funny, takes great pics, and sees some interesting stuff"....and realize that it's all true....and I get to be that guy....

Did two weeks on a KLR rental in Mexico February, 2013....and might sharpen the pencil and write that ride up sometime....Mex2013 will be the title....I think....
