The photography in this ride report is excellent! The adventure is excellent. I also enjoyed the self-reliant attitude and easiness to make friends. Interesting points for me were: (1) The incident with the US Border Patrol - they were probably concerned that you were scouting for routes into the US for others (2) The limo ride with the chicks had me envious. That is so out of place!

Good on the Baja run. I see more MEX rides in your future in spite of your comment...

If you were living closer to the border, you might feel more of this unbelievable tug to go down there, as many of us in the border states feel. As a 'roadie' maybe you also play the guitar. I always travel down there with a capo and headstock tuner in my pocket. There's always an acoustic guitar laying around in any bar or restaurant in Mexico. A few rasgueados wins you instant friends whether you speak Spanish or not.

Great rr, and the blog too

It is true....
I left this morning and am on the road on my R12R, currently camping on lake Erie in Ohio.
Im sorry to say I have no laptop so I won't be updating much from the road... But I do have some new digital recording devices and will try to capture some good stuff.

I'll be in Maine tomorrow, then heading north... Chasing the storm.
I will try and update on one of my ferry rides if possible.

Stay tuned we'll be right back after this word from our sponsor - and please remember to nueter your pets!

Hmmnn...Kinda like Erica's RR? No?



Ride on ChiTown. Sans laptop is a GOOD thing. Always up for reading more.

I can't copy/paste img URL code from smugmug's (flash) site... Talk to Baldy....


(imagine a picture of a can of PBR, with a stunning coastline ocean background in Maine, maybe a dslr with a red stripe on a tripod taking time lapse photos is in there too)

BTW, Brother FF kpick is holed up in La Paz about to ride out the cat 5 hurricane... Let's send some good vibes his way even though he told me I could have his XR 650 if something happens to him...

maybe one of the Sac crew can post the photo I speak of...

Thanks for the good vibes. I should be ok. Made a run to the store to stock up on survival supplies.
I should be able to live 5 days on this...

I am familiar with how to share photos... Smugmug is a Flash based system and my iPhone doesn't play with Flash. All I get is a broken image icon where the URL link code would be.

I can upload to smugmug using the SM iPhone App, but can't get the links..

Thanks anyways!

Guess it will have to wait!

Hey, so how is that new Dunlop doing? And what's the riding like with the stock screen? Glad to see you hit the road. Your R was quite good to me - and other than the shit weather in Chicago, I had a nice three days of decompression time before heading back to Sac.

I'll be back for more of your Dad's pizza some day....
