Actually, here is the real real:


I live in San Francisco, like to split lanes, drink in the hot spring, and howl at the moon. Been looking at a loop from home / big sur / south coast ridge road - camp / nacimiento / indian valley + peach tree road / mercey hot springs - camp / panoche rd to I-5 / home.

Any ride will do, just looking for some new people to ride with shoot me a note. Would love to hit up the DV Daze or the DV n00b riders coming up in the next few months. I think one of those events is still open - anyone from around here want to split a campsite or ride down together?

Later,
Alan
Alan,
I am always up for a ride! Camping will have to wait until March!

Looks like good ole Sandy Claws has been generous with quite a few of us.

I can't ride mine, but it's sure handy

Anyone else doing Death Valley Daze, end of next month??
Just booked a site for Thu-Sun. Right now plans are to ride solo and stay at Furnace Creek, but that could change (more people coming with) as we get closer to the date. It seems like there is plenty of room there so let me know if anyone needs a spot and I'll give you the site number.

Laugh Baja riders this Holiday Season?



Hey all,

Cary and I hope to be heading down to Baja this Saturday, if the bikes and weather co-operate ...

I know we may see HardWorkingDog on the way down or back ... anyone else to keep an eye out for?

We hope to swing through Guadalupe Canyon Oasis around Christmas and then south via Gonzaga Bay to Bay of LA for New Year's Eve ...

That's the plan today, anyway ... wish us luck!

Wave if you pass us on the road ...

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Hey HWD,
Cool, the long way is always the best way ...
Hope to see you down there!

Hi missadventure,
I've always wanted to do a mainland-ferry-Baja loop ... we'll probably be blazing a trail ahead of you the week before to be home by the 6th ...
