^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Since my first post read " PM me if interested" I'll assume you two are not really interested. If so, not free, PM me.

Most of you do not know that this thing is a massive 15 inches tall and almost 11 inches wide.

It's on par with the largest of AAA road map sizes.

If you picture that as small, use the dimensions I gave you and draw it out on a piece of paper.

Just know what you're getting into when you try to pack it.

That said, forget the size: there probably isn't much better for detail on the peninsula.

TIP: I recommend rubber-banding it into a tube and stowing it in a side case. That's much better than trying to store it flat. Three rubber bands spaced out and you have a compact, almost indestructible, 15 inch paper tube that will serve as the best reference for the Baja you can buy.

Bonus TIP: Put it in an actual cardboard tube for extra durability if taking it along on a ride.


Know this: The large size is actually an advantage. Don't try to wish for a more "compact" version. Take it, protect it, and you'll have a fantastic reference for the Baja that's unmatched.

Money back guarantee if you don't agree with my opinion

I would personally not drag it around Baja, but I ride a KTM 525 EXC with small saddlebags and no support when I ride Baja. What I do is make copies of the pages in the area I'm going to ride as my trips are already planned out prior to departure. I like having info on ranchos and such in small detail just in case we find difficulty out in a remote area. If you are driving or use hard cases, take it with you.

I contacted them and they told me they were going to bring some back from Baja. Never heard back from them.
