You can't leave us hanging like that!

How much longer are you going to be in Baja? Two buddies and I are riding down this weekend to spend two weeks exploring a lot of the the same back roads you did. We'll cross through Tecate on Sunday morning.

I'd love to compare notes over beer

I know this is a little late

But I want to warn you about drinking tequila in Baja. That stuff makes you do crazy stuff. Don't ask me how I know.


Anyway I hope you mend quickly and get back on the bike. I can't wait to hear the rest of this story..

Great Baja report. I like the way you take things as they come! Looking forward to your upcoming post.

He says he is "relaxing not typing" right now.

I was told a preview of the story, and as a friend of kta's I am even more on edge than you guys are.

The main thing I took away was the experience was literally:

"nightmarish"

By the way... if you need parts (motorcycle- or body-) brought down, let me know before Friday afternoon!

Oh, man, this is the high-test distilled version of ride reportage!

You have a fine way with writing, and I am totally on the edge of the office chair. As one who is prepping for first-time long-haul Mexico dualsporting, every detail may have personal relevance in upcoming months.

Keep the details coming, stay safe, and thanks for taking us this far!

With alittle research you would have found out both of those east roads to San Juanico are not worth the effort, you should have taken the north road, and saved yourself a bunch of BS.

I wonder if the sh*t went down in Cabo? Nothing but trouble if you ask me. Not that it's all bad.
