Thanks Oldtimer/snowball. I sure missed you on the trip! I wish you could have made it. We'll ride together some how, some time, and on some kind of 2 wheels!

This is how Oldtimer became, "Snowball". Yes, that is a "Snowball" he is eating. He offered me some, but I thought he looked better with it.

Next morning

Had a wonderful afternoon ride the Triumph was very happy, sooo...


The next morning a bunch of us headed back over to the tienda to make coffee and eat pop tarts. NOTE: notice Sunshines custom right pannier top back on day one she felt sorry for locals in Durando and decided to donate a new cooking griddle to them


Now a little later I sat back, as I became entertained watching the Mad Max "Thunderdome" Bartertown gas purchasing event; that was a hoot as the local guys only had 200 liters total. You'll note the jeep in this shot he came driving up pissing an moaning about the bikes taking all the gas seems he could have carried a 5 gallon jerry can.



I heard someone paid $17 for two gallons of gas not sure if thats true but it was competitive.


You see there is a nice looking and fairly new PeMex station a couple hundred yards away yet it has no gas, from my research it has never really had any fuel but it is nice landmark. Anyone ever actually get gas there?

Some ate their pop tarts, some of us had our Kashi and gourmet coffee with Bailey's on the beach, while watching the sunrise. Mmm, I love Baja!

Thanks Sam, you had to remind about my "custom lid" - you know how much that knucklehead move is going to cost me? And that's in addition to a new rear shock. I don't want to talk about it anymore.

Remind me I'm not letting you close to the Tigger before you get a new lid.... Sorry that you didn't find it. We turned off 3 shortly before that Pemex on the way back.

You might shop around a little for the shock Works Performance, Penske, Wilburs are all options as well as Ohlin

When we went to dinner at that famous taco shop in the Bay of LA you should have seen the look on the face of the local woman when you took your helmet off. She couldn't believe that a woman was driving a moto.

I love that! I just wish I could have shown her that she could ride too!

I put on just under 3500 miles during this little ride, it was great fun. I'm now planning next Super Bug ride and it looks like I was just talked into doing the Desert 100 in Odessa (http://stumpjumpers.org/2008/01/21/2008-desert-100/) It must have been a moment of extreme weekness.

The Baja ride was fantastic, I'm so happy Live2Ride talked me into going even though I was apprehensive about going that far outside of my comfort zone. I guess getting out of my box and comfort zone once in a while is a very good thing. The Cake Baker (Cee Bee) told me he has the most fun when he does that and I'm starting to understand what he was talking about.
