Baja January 1'rst to the 9'th of 2011???

I've never riden through Baja, and I don't speak any Spanish.

I'm looking for someone who would like to spend the first week of 2011 traveling down to Cabo and Back.

We could stay in hotels, or camp.

I think the trip would seem safer and more fun with one or more folks.

Let me know if interested?

Thanks,

Chad

hell to the yes

what are you riding?

Honestly, I don't think I can take that much time off. Maybe make it half way? I have a guy who works for me, I could have him drive my truck and chase us. How pathetic is that? I would prolly have him drive down to San Diego and then fly the next day to meet up.

Hi,I just came back from Baja.I was down there for the 1000.I wish I could join.I have two weeks off that ends Jan.1st bummer.You should have a good time,it's a good ride,none to challenging,skill wise,on the black top,aside from saddle sores.I'm sure your planning on a visit to Mike's Sky Ranch,unfortunately I didn't get to go,race car duties being what they were, but when you get to San Ignacio,you may know this already,stop or stay at Rice and Beans and if you do and either of the Ricardos are there,they make a mean freshly squeezed lime juice margarita,tell them Sienna from Los Angeles who was there during the Baja says hi.Ok I don't expect you to remember or do that but you should stop.Just about anyone can give you an earful of cautionary tales and I'll leave that to them with this exception, coming into and leaving many of the small towns you will be greeted by some of the most severe speed bumps that will rattle you silly or possibly worse if taken with speed and they are not for the most part well marked but after surviving one or two you'll develop an instinct for them.Have a great trip.
