Well done Johnny D.

I have traveled this same route many times, your words and pictures have captured the very essence of Baja. You'll find the people more friendly and the experiences more pleasurable as you continue south. Ride on and write on!

That is funny stuff right there. Good writing, good report. Thanks! I feel your Long Way Round pain. (what ever happened to 6th gear....?) Have you been scheming about how to get over to JohnO'Groats before May, just in case the boys need a little help or Claudio breaks another bike? If you haven't, you really need to buy the Mondo Enduro book. Talk about British colloquialisms. Damn funny stuff as well.

NICE! So did you use the flash to get that shot?

No shit, you guys were in space too? How many Pesos does that cost? Did the lovely Natalie go with you? And exactly How far is Uranus from the Earth? .................Very cool report. Thanks for the effort guys

Holy shit!

I've been avoiding this report, because I had confused Johnny Dakar with another wanker who's stuff I was tired of reading. Someone else linked me to this thread, and I just got done reading the first post. Motherf*cker that's some good writing...

I had to break it off, tho, or I'd spend the next 4 hours reading it and I have shit I need to get done.

I'll be back, tho...

No, dude--I'm the original wanker.

Sandiegoland taught me how. Ask Char76.

Now aren't you sure it wasn't someone called Jo... Jo Momma?

Johnny Dakar has been banished from all local rides until he gets this report done. Estimated duration of ban... 7 weeks.

It will be worth it, but we'll miss you....
