Your Baja story got me so worked up…..I had to go for a long ride on my Terra today. Over hill & dale, thru mud & rocks, 350 miles roundtrip down to Heavener JUST to get me a real authentic (Baja style) trailer taco and pure Mexican Coke!





Mmmmm….muy bueno. I feel so much better. Got my fix and came back home to finish your RR.

I see LOTS of potential down there. Yes siree.

p.s. what a trooper....'ol Dingleweeds! Tough old fart, I think.

Hi BigDog,

Love your ride reports ...

I'm wondering if you had any route intel that encouraged you to leave Mike's Sky Ranch to the southeast rather than to the southwest?

I've heard the roads up there have all been damaged by storms since I went to the southwest with a loaded KLR ... guess that used to be the "easy" way ... your southeast way seemed pretty tough ...

hope to see you around the campfire, someday,

A DRZ would have been great in my opinion-------I had the first year model---put lots of miles on that bike---I guess that was a 2000 model. We left the cooking stuff at home on this trip to lighten the load---we carried lots of snacks and water---and ate at a roadside restaurant whenever we could. Our trip was cut so short----we'd still be down there if Scott hadn't got hurt.

I really had no intell------but had tracks of the way we went and the Southwest route and just picked one. The Southwest route ran into our route at one point---and right where they joined is where Scott got hurt---and it was still tough after that--------your right----------the roads were unbelievably washed out---that was what made it so tough.

Great read Mark. Always enjoy your rr's.

Glad DW is on the mend. Cracked ribs, no fun for sure.

Waaahoooo!!

Another great ride report that created a lot of stories, those ridin' buddy moments that you guys will be laughing and talking about for years!!

Scott.. wow.. what a way to tough it out!! I cracked a rib playing hockey 6 weeks before I was heading out to Idaho.. the doc told me "at about 4-5 weeks the pain will be gone BUT give it at least another week or.. the pain will be back"!! Sure enough about 4.5 weeks my pain was gone.. I could actually sleep and breathe again.. I gave it one more week then I was back playing hockey and ........... set out for Idaho to ride!!!

Sucker hurt bad.. think I would of rather passed another kidney stone than go through that again.. At least your not in as much pain for so long..

Heal up.. and hope to ride with you soon :)

Great report, Big Dog! 4 of us are heading down to Baja on the 15th, will park the van/trailer in San Felipe, ride through Mike's and over to the Pacific side, back through Catavina to Bay of LA and on to San Francisquito, then back up the Sea of Cortez side-----pics were great, good to hear about Coco! (looking forward to meeting him)

Have a great time-------we left the trails in fine condition------I'm bettin' you guys are riding dedicated dirt bikes since you are hauling to San Felipe----you'll have a blast on those things.

Great RR again Big Dog, I really enjoy the way you lay out the story. It's a real "Hoot". Hope DW mends quickly.

Also curious where you got your back fender rack for your 250, I would like to find one for my CRF250X.

Thanks
