Indeed, another great ride report! I am sure that the ADV community supports me when I say that your next employment endeavor should involve riding to new places and making strange links to Japanese videos. I believe that you have the best ride reports out there, in no small part due to Matt's riding ability, having a stoic passenger ready for every picture opportunity and a great writer/editor to chronicle it all for the rest of us. I am glad that Norman J. DeLorman has finally gone cold turkey from sourcing his routes from Apple Maps.

All the best in your future travels,

BT

The BajaWans

What a great ride. You all showed me some new roads. The guys are very adventuresom. My hats off to all three of the riders.

....but the 5 stars goes to you, LittleWan. I think you are on top at ADV with your wit and imagination....and 2500 miles as a pillion, unf'ken believable.

Thanks so much

Another Wans RR in the books. What a great read!!! You guys are certifiably insane----but what fun would it be otherwise???

Thanks for taking us along & mad props for all the hard work you put into this report....well, all of 'em.

Where are you off to next??? And what am I to do in the meantime??? My riding is nothing like this.

Hi satchmo3!
Yes, we remember you! BMW 800gs How was your trip?
We actually saw you about 1 mile out of Todos Santos -
Bartek had a flat and we saw you zoom by on the hwy.

We were on a dirt side road...




Shortly before you saw this construction:



We looked for you in Todos Santos, but must have missed you.
Hope you had a great time!

Now that you have taste tested tacos from N to S and back I can't wait to see what next taste test is ahead.

Looking forward to your next adventure.
Hey Ladybug, I really enjoy finding flowers for you now!
Thanks for riding along with us!
Hope you have a great trip to Baja this fall.

We'll be there (in spirit)!

Aww, thank you BeardThrone!
I wish there was a place on a resume for "weird japanese linky skills"
Hmmmmm.

Much appreciated.... and keeps drawing us back to Baja.

Guessing tacos won't be on the menu for awhile...
Thank you, Bgunn!
Oh, and we're having a boatload of tacos tomorrow night!

Wait, how did you only get a week out of that? Oh, maybe you started late.
or, more likely, only a week was entertaining

Aw, and Matt thought we were so good on this ride.
Safety conscious, even.
Glad to have you join us again!
Some day you'll get in the dirt, I just know it.

Always great to see you again, redog1!
Thanks for all your enthusiasm and support!
I know - 2 RRs so close together - after doing 2 RRs in 2012.
What is this world coming to??

Thanks Rob,
I thought Bartek looked so good! I heart gifs.
And matt did such a great job on the last photo (I think that's the "cute" part, right?)

Thank you!
Hope you have an amazing trip!
You'll like the blurry map, below...
Make sure you get some of those fish tacos in Miraflores







Thanks for the kind words, everybody!
It wouldn't be the same without you guys, glad you came along for the ride!


I'm super happy to have helped bring back good memories for the Baja vets...
and help provide enthusiasm for the folks gearing up for their own Mex adventures!
Baja is awesome - go ride it before any more stuff gets paved!




Here's one last map I never got around to using.
(a screen capture of our tracks). Blurry as usual
Better than the crayon map? not sure.






We're getting together with Bartek and Scott and a few other folks (Radek! )
this weekend.
If I get any good pics/video, I'll try and post a little mini RR back here.



in the meantime - Go RIDE!
