Dang, you know how hard it is for me to be nice and it's going to be at least two years before I buy another bike. Do I really have to be careful that long? Live2Ride only made me be nice to him for two months and that was hard enough. You guys are tough on me

Few more shots of Coco's place and on the road

I almost forgot about these two. here we have a Father and son team who flew in from Denmark to San diego bought two bikes a CBR 230 for dad and an XT250 for the boy. They rode into Baja going all the way down ferry over to Mainland MX tootle around and end up back in San Diego in 6 weeks sell the bikes and fly back to Denmark. Now thats a great vacation.

Thumb My little ride to Baja - - -

The ride started for me with a flight to Longview, TX to get my new bike a 07 Suzuki DR200SE now dubbed Super Bug . My buddy Oldtimer had set my bike up for me with all the accessories I wanted, picked me up at the airport and did the long (1300 miles) ride across TX, NM and AZ, at the breakneck speed of a 55 mph top speed, with me to meet the rest of the Baja crew.

Maybe my sense of humor is strange but I found it funny to see a Harley parked in the Denver airport right under the Baggage Claim sign.


George and Bob rode with Oldtimer and I to Yuma. Here the three good guys I had the pleasure of riding those miles with--thanks for riding with me.


Bob bought a new KLR right before this ride, he got enough miles on it for break in but this was his first big ride on it.


George packing up his bike getting ready to leave.


Barry, my hero, he has done so much for me over the years, he's such a great friend it would be difficult to find anyone that can match him.


Oh yeah, heres the Super Bug and me.


A little of the ride to Yuma.

New Mexico


Oldtimer has become so attached to the Super Bug he took her into the motel room with him at Deming, NM. He was afraid with the 29 degree forecasted low the poor little motorcycle would get cold during the night.


Arizona




Arriving in Yuma the first person we saw was Cee Bee, (Chuck the Cake Baker) he was staying at the same motel where we were staying. It wasnt too long ago his bike was in this shape:http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=6087956&postcount=542 and there was some question as to if it would be together in time for the ride.

It was together just in time for the ride and looked like this when he got it to Yuma:


I knew he would do it, if Cee Bee says hes going to be somewhere for a ride by golly hell be there. (Im not the only stubborn one in this group ).

We then headed to Da Boyz Pizza Parlor for pizza and beer with the rest of the Baja group. I rode in the truck with Cee Bee so I could enjoy a couple of beers. It was good seeing the people I already knew and it a pleasure meeting the others that I only knew by their screen names. Its always fun being able to put a face and name with a user name.

With a few hints from Live2Ride I figured out Alinbeaverton had snagged Bacon and he was on the Baja ride with him. I also discovered Alinbeaverton had left the porker out in his bike rather than bringing him in for pizza and beer. I headed to the Dakar to rescue Bacon but I think Alinbeaverton was afraid I was going to pig nap Bacon. Allan escaped from his seat where he was stuck with only being able to get out by going under the table or over it and followed me into the parking lot and introduced me to his special guest, Bacon.


With the formalities out of the way it we returned to join the rest of the group and Bacon got to meet Sunnysideup, it seems Bacon likes the ladies.


It was a very good evening enjoying the company of the some wonderful people over pizza and beer. Everyone who was supposed to be there had arrived and we were all excited about the ride ahead.

Much more to come . . . . . . .

Fresh air, great view, perfect temperature, friends to harass you... The bathroom was a little far, but I'll consider it a trade off.

Wow!

What a great ride report! I've never been to Baja - would love to hook up with a great bunch of Advriders for a ride like this someday.

Wow. Gee. A WHOLE vote. How kind and generous of you. A WHOLE vote, ... I hardly know what to say.

(Actually I know exactly what I'd say, but I'd be sent to Jo Mamma if I said it here. So I won't. But you all know what I'm talking about, right?!)


And my whole vote goes for Copper Canyon too!! Yippeee !!

They did not ask for any dough. 'Ron' took me all the way to San Felipe to a bike shop. We figured it was bad gas. Found some dry gas & filled her up with hightest & I blasted on to Yuma. Lucky me.
Once again, thanks & hope for my girl Rox & I to be on the next ride to Baja with u all.
What a great story and I'm glad it all worked out - both the bike-capade and the almost-emergency at home.
