Fun!

Looks like a very fun trip! Might have to try out one of those ural things Usually I don't "appreciate" all the food pictures ADV'ers like to put in their ride reports. However...all those tacos looked yummy!! (insert drooling smiley) I'm going to have to go down there just to do some sampling...in fact, I'm going out for Mexican right now!

Thanks for sharing your trip!

First thanks for doing this report even if that work stuff etc made it take a few days to get done I enjoyed the two camera report even with all the photos. I enjoyed seeing someone use a Ural as a vehicle and not a toy. As for those of us that have whined about getting it done etc, I am included in part of it I think. I just enjoy reading about you guys and your travels because I have stuff in my life that keeps me closer to home. As a fellow Ural owner (Retro) I was also really wanting to see how the rig did.
Good job to both of you and take care. If things happen that we cross Ural paths I would be glad to talk Ural, as for the BMW I like but don't own.

Thanks for the ride report. Wish I could get my wife to take a trip like that. Can't get her to ride her bike much anymore. Good luck with Alaska, plan to head that way myself sometime soon.

Question

Was this a ride report or are you a food critic? Great pics Cory. Would love to do another Baja with you.

You guys rock, don't worry about the Nay-Sayers to this or to that there the ones that ride a chair and live there life by what others are doing. I think I read a report sometime back and your Dad was there and the three of you and a lot of bike problems. GOOD JOB I have the Ural Gear-up bug (BAD) and keep telling myself that it most likely wouldn't be any good at pulling high mountain passes with a full load.

MORE RIDES AND REPORTS PLEASE AND MORE ABOUT THE Yettie

Thanks for the entertaining report. Love your dogs pic.


Made me think of the Dr. Suess book "Go Dog Go" and this must have been the after party next day

Thanks for the Great Ride Report

I have been to Baja San Feliepe a couple of times since 2003 on my KLR solo. Can't wait to make the same trip on my new UKH ....

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=444302

..which should be done in June.
I would work in a stop at Mikes Sky Rancho too. I'm hoping that I can get about the same on road performace with the KLR/Enduro rig that you are getting with the URAL

Thanks for getting my Baja Juices goaing again.

The food looked better in Baja than this side of the border.

Thumb Thank You !

1 for wearing The Blue .

2. for this fun and information filled ride report .

it's been many years since I traveled Mexico , once I drove all the way to Guatemala .

I too ride a Ural , an old Tourist as a Solo but I find it the best tourer I've ever had and I've been riding 40 years now .

Slow & steady win the race every time .

I especially like the food details , like you I'm a ' foodie ' .
