I don't think it would be good idea! You should ride it on a small bike before giving it try on the SE. one section has some pretty gnarly climbs that could end really bad. Unless you have an inseam of the jolly green giant.

I love my 450 Husy, It is so easy to get along with. there is no question the big blast from the 525 is a useful weapon in Baja.

Jonz, U crzy Bstrd

Up the Calamajue would rock on the 950, even to the window rock [alot of first gear on the big dog] . It will be tight. After the window rock Jonz, you risk casing the bike. I rode a 650R through last year & nearly lost a foot. You might enjoy the ride to BOLA on a more woodsy bike. The 950 rules in alot of places but not so much so in this particular stretch. Joe. P.S. Don't tell your mother your plans. She would be pissed & maybe even kick your ass.

Have fun

I wish I were in Baja now. It is 25 degrees here & I have 3 " of new snow on my deck. Get sun or wind burned & tell us all about it when you return. Have fun. Joe

Oh Jaybone, my friend... it's much worse than that...

..... I accidentally knocked your Husky over, and it fell off the stand in the shop today, and it scattered across the floor in several pieces. I am sorry. My bad....

So don't sweat the weather report, in the big scheme of things.

Love,

Stovey
