It was, that was my brother, just talk to him and he is passing through Ritzville right now and should be to Rockford in a couple hours. Did you salute him?
I talk to him after posting this and he said you were flying down the road. Said he had his pickup nailed just to get around you and wanted to know how fast you were going.

While the rest of the crew visited the Mission, Mike, Corky and I ran south about 50 miles. At the moderate pace Corky set this was a little over an hour with stops. We stopped at a fishing camp (San Rafael ???) and talked to Pancho for about an hour. Found out the fishin was good, they usually pulled around 1000 lbs of finish in per boat. Also We were suprised to learn the fish was shipped as far south as Cabo.

We didn't just go out to talk fishing, the real reason for this ride, a wall Corky had located that runs from the Sea of Cortez to about the top of the Mesa.



The wall is located about 3 miles south of the fish camp. Reason for it's existence? That's a good question. The fishermen indicated agua caliente on the north side of the wall with a slight sulphur smell. Speculation was it was built to keep cattle out of the aqua caliente. But then why only to top of the mesa? Another option simply a property line.

We opted not to ride to the wall. Access would have been up a sand wash and may have been pretty soft.

If you go here you might get a different idea of the wall and its location.

This was a great trip that I was fortunate enough to do twice. One week with my Girlfriend and one week with the gang. The group functioned with military like efficiency. Everyone was up early in the morning and ready to hit it! Another surprise that everyone was a solid rider.


Baja takes its toll on equipment




A hot springs at the Mission for soaking your spiritual bones




My questions on the toughness of the 08 KLR's were answered. Damage is only cosmetic and the beast continues on......




They got that look like there never going home.......

WOW! I'm hoping your bike hit a rock to shatter the plastic like that?

Talking Proud of my ADV sticker

I would like to thank Tim for putting this ride together and herding the whole group thru Baja.
I am not a “real” ADV rider. I call myself a Mini ADV rider as I don’t ride a big suitcase bike.
I noticed this posting back in November. With the bikes going on this ride I contacted Tim and suggested he modify the route a bit
.
During our chat I realized I knew his dad, Burt from a Mexico ride I was on.
Im sure Burt had told the story of the old guy that is scared of lighting and turned around and went home. Next time we all meet I’ll get to tell my side of the story.

As I have been over route many times I thought this is something I don’t want to miss.

Before this ride I had attended 3 other ADV events and put together a one day myself.

After this ride. I am going to get some larger ADV stickers for my bikes and vehicles.
All these folks (men and women) rode over some very challenging roads and not one crybaby!!!
Then theirs “LADYBUG” I don’t think I would do what she did on my 400!!!
That’s one tough, very nice lady.
I’m not much of a picture taker so nothing to add.

Thanks for letting me tag along.

Corky

Corky the pleasure was all mine. meeting and riding with I'm mean following you was fun. We need to get an ole desert racer like you up here for something you not use to...riding around trees

Yes I to Ladybug she did something I would not savior, 3500 miles on a DR200 loaded she definetly has my respect along with Oldtimer (Berry on a KLR) and his bunch riding with Ladybug from Texas and than back again. I think George had it the best on his BMW (softer seat).

And finally I agree about the riders, not one crybaby, whiner in the group of what, 20+. Each and everyone a character and each knowing their limitations "Rode their own ride". Even the the rider on the brand new 08 KLR didn't say a thing about all the busted stuff...but he sure drank alot of tequila that night.
