If you ever run into this kind of thing again, swing by West Coast GP Cycles in West LA/East Santa Monica and they'll get you dialed. Always helped me out with my gear. Good luck and safe travels

Ok, you got my attention. Post as often as you can with updates and adventures.

I still plan to be in Ushuaia in January. Maybe too early to see you there.

Ride safe, brother

Buen viaje amigo. Enjoy Baja, get that pig dirty. Look out for passing pick-ups when youre on the pavement because those buggers can sneak up on you.

I'll be in San Cristobal in about 1 month because right now I have to finish this last week of school, then I have a month long date with some tasty waves in Oaxaca.

see ya in the southlands........

Out of the USA

Made it out of the US and into Mexico yesterday. I had a late start out of LA so only made it to Ensenada.





The border crossing at Tecate was a total breeze. In fact I was in the town center before I realized I’d better turn around and get a tourist card.

Today I’ll head further south to try and catch the ferry on Thursday otherwise the next departure is on Sunday.

Hey Crash! Hows the Spanish going? We just may pass paths in Oaxaca at some nice beach.

Spanish. Humm. Well, lets just say that my brain hurts and although i can understand a lot more than I used to, i still cant spit it out very quickly. In time I guess.

Good luck, enjoy Baja, IMO its the gem of Mexico, but you have to get off the slab to see it.

Valle de Bravo

Hey MT
Glad to see you're having a great ride.

If you wander anywhere close to Valle de Bravo (2hrs SW of Mexico city)
by all means look me up.
Have an HP2 sitting at home and would be gald to show you around. The central plateau is one of Mexico's premier riding areas, specially during fall and winter.

Cheers!

Full update later but thought you might like this

So, I'm sitting in La Paz waiting for a 8:00PM ferry.


Coffee and Sun...Yummm


Spent last night in Loreto and took off early to make sure I could get the permit for the bike and a ticket on the ferry to Mazatlan. The first few miles out of Loreto were fantastic!



Love these type of roads


Yup, I had a grin the whole time the rode looked like that!

Is it still hotter than hell in La Paz? You're going to dig the ferry ride to MZT. Sitting out on the stern at night and having a brew is good stuff.

Say hi to the girls at Baja Ferries Recepcion for me.

P.S. If youre going to ride Mex 40 to Durango, cuidado. The trucks are spooky. I'm not sure why everyone says that this stretch of pavement is so great. Compared to Mex 16, Mex 40 is really a very mediocre ride.
