Day 7



We had noticed that a tail light bulb was out on the Ural. I had spare bulbs etc. and thought it would be a good day to just go over both bikes. Bolt patrol on the bikes check oil and tires etc. That took a bit of the monring and let Marcia sleep late. Once I finished with that it was into town for lunch and some more shopping. Rosarito has a real old fashoned leather shop. They make gloves and jackets ect. we wanted to check this shop out.

First things first brunch


The churro dough is squezed out of this tube into hot oil


From the hot oil to the sugar and cinnamon


Into a bag $1.00


Locals stopping too


This mural was on the other side of the street. Liberation was the theme.


We found the leather shop but it was closed. Found this sign for Marcia


We had Mexican food for dinner

Great report and pictures. I've been down on the GS a few times but not yet on the Gear Up.


we cross the boarder

Border is the line between two countries
Boarder is the exchange student from Slovenia that rents you spare room.

Day 8

We had seen and heard talk about this little town/village called Puerto Nuevo just south of Rosarito. Its famous for its lobster and sea food. So we jump on Ural and you guessed it breakfast. You cant leave town on an exploration with an empty stomach.




After we had a couple breakfast tacos we stopped at this guy.


I must have gained 10 pounds on this trip. But it is the Holiday season. Ok south to Puerto Nuevo!






Marcia did let me stop at this "Gentelmens club"


I wonder how many actually are virgins working in a place like this?




One of the girls with some talent




The gate to the village










We parked and walked the town checking out all the stores. I bought a little camping chair made of real Mexican leather with some cool tool work. Puerto Nuevo is located in a beautiful spot right on the water and weather was so nice the day we visited. We had an early dinner at one of the many seafood places with a perfect view.








The bike from our table


These guys showed up during our dinner. They did a great job.






Since we dont eat lobster we asked the waiter if we could get a picture of one.



We walked the rest of the booths and headed back to the bike. We got to the bike and there was this older lady in her 70's standing at the bike just smiling. She started talking to us in Spanish we didnt get most of it but she was happy about the bike. I tried to get her to sit on it but she wouldnt. We bid goodbye and head north for the night.

New Years day

Day 10 Rosarito B.C. to Oxnard CA

Its my birthday. Up early we decided to pack up and leave. All packed up and ready to go another beautiful day.


We say goodbye to the security guards who take out picture and check out. We decided lets head back home early and take our time. There was a Ural get together we wanted to attend in a few days. Clutches out and throttles on.








I had to stop and put my ear plugs in .


Through T.J. over to Tecate for the crossing.








We crossed over and rode on tell lunch time


Smile its your birthday


We had lunch and hit the road again. Not 20 miles down the road Marcia had to stop and go to the bathroom. Well might as well use it too. How do you spell relief?


Some cool Hollywood sunsets


We rode into Oxnard CA and it was plenty dark. We called it a day and stopped for the night.

Day 12

Gilroy CA to Napa CA

Breakfast El Americano


Like I said we wanted to attend a Ural meet and greet. Hubert Kriegel is on a world tour for Ten Years and has a blog http://www.thetimelessride.com/ He is traveling via sidecar right now on a Ural. He was going to be at Triquestcycles.com our Ural dealer in Santa Clara doing a presentation. We wanted to see that. So at breakfast I made some phone calls to firm up times with Triquestcycles as to when Hubert was going to be at the shop.




It turned out that we hadnt missed the presentation but it was the following day. SO we decided to just ride home to Napa and unpack and ride down the following day to see Hubert. I needed to check on my little kitty cat anyways.

So fastforward to the follwoing day

We meet Hubert Kriegel http://www.thetimelessride.com/ a pretty funny French man. He has seen and rode the world I was pretty impressed. He has a wife and family that live in Sacramento CA so he flew home to see them for the Holidays. He is currently in Mongolia on his Ural.




Marcia had some weenies


Some Arctic Gear Ups Marcia's far left (The Yeti)


Urals with thier owners and Hubert




Thats a wrap. No issues on this trip. We had a good time hope you enjoyed it.
