L.A. Weekend Riders Baja Ride Jan 9 - 11th

Originally planned in Dec but didn't really take off until on Jan 9th of this year. This is our first major ride for 2009. There were 8 riders from the regular weekend crew namely - rob (nmbmn), john (rruugger), noel (dr), javier (tt), joel 8)H, dannyG, rich (2wheelsgood), and tony (tt's friend). Then we have steve (roundstock) from orange county, then from san diego, steve (dirt rider), luke (eggroll), greg (gregwannabe). So, a total of 12 riders, 3-950adv, 1-950se, 3-640a, 1 690e, 1 bmw dakar, 1 bmw xc,, 1 husky 450 and a dr650.

The plan is to ride dirt as much as we can from Tecate to as far south as Camalu (Pacific Ocean side). To do this, we followed part of the Baja 500 route. The terrain varies from easy to technical, graded dirt road, whoops, sand, rocks, hill climbs, lots and lots of ruts, sandy beach, but the best is the primitive dirt road running for about 50 miles along the Pacific Ocean.

My ride was the trusty, crash tested 640A...


these 640As i think they're the most suitable bike for this type of baja ride, the orange is an 07 belonging to john (rruugger)


we trailered the bikes to san diego and got to shelly's after 9pm and met some of the FFs



all the bikes were packed, just waiting for the morning


the early morning ride to tecate started easy until we got lost and hit heavy fog limiting our visibility to about 10 feet, and our goggles/glasses got misty and can't see shit.

this ain't mexico yet, just getting gas here in the u.s.a.



meeting the rest of the guys at the us side of the border


after meeting greg who spent the night at hacienda santa veronica, we all headed out towards ojos taking el compadre road

somewhere between el hongo and ojos


group pic without our trail scout dirtdiver; poor javier and rob, their hands are empty...


dr will give away to anyone a ktm t-shirt who could guess how many beers he had during the entire ride



dannyG and 2wheelsgood on the last day, had proven that those jackets and pants are really effective....


lunch stop at ojos


oh yeah, $1 taco


wtf...soft drinks.....


rich, steve, and dannyG lovin the $5 lunch....


pemex outside ojos on the mex2


somewhere south of tres hermanos




leave it the way you found it...



after this, shit started happening.....


rob.... was quick in picking up the diet dakar......


more coming after dinner....

more baja

one tough hill climb for us nOObs


there's no clean line on this one; the good javier chose to help luke than drink beer and watch...



but that didn't get luke far enough...


tony showing the proper way not to get in the rut, by switching from one line to another



i have to borrow javier's helmet and jacket so i can climb this hill.....


luke not really having a good day....


the 9fiddys make it look easy...


a little abandoned oasis and great place to set up camp, but since it's only 3pm, some of the guys wanted to push on to punta cabra.







it's here when eggroll bruised his rib


oooops my turn...over the handle bar and 15 feet down..... it was a steep downhill, 30mph on first gear...

The last known Grizzly bear in Mexico attacked me on this section. I was fighting him off while trying to synch my blackberry to Dunerats iphone. With all of that going on my bike wanted a rest.
