I was wondering if any of you guys have ridden just one way and shipped your bike back.. I have done the northern routes for the last 6 years, all about 1100 miles and looking for something different where I can still ride 7 days (Sunday to Saturday) and still only miss 5 days of work.

I have a great offroad route to cabo just need to ship my bike back..

anybody done this ?

Lots of us have. Usually not intentionally.

What's your plan for this? How many days? On bike? How many bikes? etc etc...

Baja

Todd and the rest of the Baja freaks out there. There's a group of us Baja freaks here in Bako most of us in the 50-70 age range with a few kids thrown in too. Most of us have 20-30 years of riding and racing in the ultimate sand box ( although its getting pretty tame the last few years). I've found in the last couple years that riding big adv. bikes has presented a whole new challenge. We try to go down 3-4 times a year. Our next scheduled trip with a large group will be presidents day weekend. I'll be leading the group of big bikes ( we break off into groups based on skill level or big bike and race bikes). I'd be happy to have some others along. I know Baja very well and "will guide for beer"

BEST thread for months. Looks like everyone was waiting for it.
I put it on my will, if I cant ride to Baja before I die, I want to be burried there.
Thanks Todd.
