Those are not standard GPS coordinates. There should not be two periods(.) in each number. I interpreted those numbers this way:
26° 15.54'N 112° 28.42'W
That location is on the beach.

On the other hand, making a wild guess, I tried iterpreting them this way:
26° 15' 54"N 112° 28' 42"W
and that location is indeed near the race course, though 300 yards further North than what your earlier Google Earth image shows.

Last year when Mag7 posted their pit location coordinates, they had all kinds of crazy numbers, some in standard format, and some that made no sense at all (worse than those numbers you just posted). When I told them they were giving bad coordinates, and that their Todos Santos pit was way off the course, they ignored me. I'm thrilled you've organized an alternative for some!!!

That's a sweet looking Berg! Looks like you have a lot of fuel capacity, how much can you carry?

Best of luck in Baja, you will have a blast!

About 8 gallons. You feel the weight of the fuel, yet the bike still keeps the Husaberg nimbleness. It remains very narrow in the middle. i just keep telling myself - RIDE TO FINISH!

Thanks Man, and thanks also for the scorpion bay fuel dump - that's very much appreciated!

Hopefully I'll have a chance to buy you a beer at the finish!

I looked back but couldn't find the time and location of the Nav/GPS class. We've got a couple of Noobs in the right seat on different days and I would like for them to attend. Also, I think I prolly owe a few beers........

That's my 640 dwarfed by CHRIS BLAIS' DAKAR bike! It's a space ship of technology and coolness.

Beto's 2013 KTM 500 is also tricked out to the max. Fresh as a daisy!

Getting on the plane in 24 hours.

See you all in MX>>>>>

and the LAMEco/Raceforthewounded.com entry #88

The LAMEinator. I think she wears checkers now cause she 's got a seriously checkered past. She just blew a motor last Saturday and after a recent transplant and major surgery will be ready to line up for the race start. She is a 1978 Yamaha XT500.......
