I was just informed today that I won't be able to take 12/27-12/30 off so no Baja for me.

Mike's Roadhouse at 7:00-8:00 breakfast
Head down the road a bit just past jawbone station and park the trucks at the staging area. My plan is to hit some of the fun stuff on the "Nowwhat Loop" and work on some of my rusty skills. This place has a little of everything. I don't plan on being too far from the truck. Head out for a few hours then head back to the truck for a quick lunch and a beer then back out. I plan on being back to the trucks before dark. Conditions should be good with the storm coming in this week

If someone has a better plan please speak up.

don't forget this saturday, epic condition and free tire change awaiting everyone.




if ever i go, won't be that early and won't go very far. will just work on my desert skills. very tempting to check out what's in sito's cooler.

What would you do?

It looks like i'm going to have the week off between X-Mas and New Years. I would have loved to do Joel Mexico ride but I don't have 4 days and the Wife is not a big fan of me ride south of the border. I'm looking for some suggestions
Where would you go for 2 days this time of year?

Baja Plans

Hey Joel what are your plans as of now for Baja? Are you planning on driving/truck/trailer the bikes down to like Tecate and then riding from like St Vernonica's or are you think about riding the bikes all the way down from up here? I sure wouldn't want to do the later on my XR650. I am good for anything after the 25th and the time limit is not an issue for me. Plus are we moteling it or what?

Any possibility of leaving the 26th Joel? I've got a flight from LAX at 9:35 a.m. on the 31st; so, I'd have to make it back by the 30th. I might not be able to go. I'll let you know by tomorrow.

we ride, and ride. i will have my camping gear. lots of dirt to sleep on. motel, yes,

truck the bike to the border and will meet you at tecate. love to have you stick in the group. we can talk about the route, and you know more baja than many of us.

though i can leave a day early, the rider from canada will be at my house on the 26th and i'm compelled to wait for him as i promised.

head out on the 26th and will meet you in san felipe on the 27th. we ride further south on the 28th, on the 29th, start riding north.
