Day One Tecate to Ojos Negros
We ride in to the city of Tecate and stop at the great Taco stand, to start the taco Count. I was thinking we could eat more than Taco tour of the Oso Locos I mean there are eight of us right.
Tim at are first Taco stop


the place


a look at all the mew tires
And we are off


Me on my Xr650r
Greg getting in on the action

Richard

Shorty after this in the same place as three years ago, I lost every one and was on my own. Now you would think this to be bad thing but if you know me you know this will be fun. I know a place just up the road with beers and they need to go right past it. I am in front so I run for it as they look for me sorry guys but I told Paul, I know where the beer is. he said that place is gone put I needed to see for myself.


After about 15 minute and one beer, I asked and was told the bikes oh they rode though before you got here. I put the other five beers for the guys in my bag and jumped on my bike. I started to get on it and go after them but I see Paul and he is mad at me for getting lost. I tried to tell him I was never lost I was waiting for you here. he was not to happy with me and rode off the others asked me what was up? I said a beer stop in Mexico and they parked wow ok I think we are staying for a minute and Paul came right back.
so here we are

Before dinner things had gotten out of control

Mark was happy to be here and so was Erik

at dinner it was pointed out my rack had broke, 10 minutes latter thanks to Paul two young men stopped in at the taco shack and said they would fix it for me. off I go $20 latter this was the beefy Baja repair.

with me gone everyone was so worried about me they all had made up story's of what had been done to me for the last 45 minutes, so nice no one came looking for me but they did seem happy to see me.
and day one is done.

Day 1 Ojos Negros tips and tricks.

With any great ride there are always new tips and tricks to be learned. Due to massive Tecate Light consumptions by the group, I was forced to go to the liquor store and pick up another 18 pack. This is what I learned: If you are using a wolfman tail bag, remove the tail bag and open the cinch straps all the way out, it will fit a 18 pack of beer perfectly and tight enough to do wheelies down dirt roads. And know you know

Day three Camalu to Cataviña

Day three Camalu to El Rosario. Catavina is day four
The Sun was up and the road was calling.

Paul ready to go

Greg the wheelie man


and we ride off to breakfast and some place that was way to nice for the dirty dirt biker. than we hit the pavement for a few miles and turned left
as we got to the hills, I noticed we had lost two people Tim and Erik. I stopped and some time passed but that's the way this day was lots of waiting for me. they showed up and off we go again back on track to the rocky ridge line road.



I was really getting worked all the rocks and big cliffs it was awesome

than it happened the first time on the trip a flat, on the trailjammer's bike

I had packed two beers and passed them around it was hot and only like 9:30 am. the crew came together and two tubes later it was fixed


I don't know what this is about I missed it.



After the flat Paul and I had been riding, he stopped to wait for the others and waved me to go on. I got to this gate and opened it up and waited for about ten minutes. Paul complained I was to far up oh well what ever no thing I thought.

we had a nice lunch break here under the tree lots of Jerky and stinger waffles.




right after this I end up way ahead of every one not sure how till later. I stopped I didn't have the gas to go back so I had to just wait. After all there was six of them and they would be fine. about 45 minute later I needed to go to feel the wind again I was burning up.




I was off that's it, up the road to find this oasis.



little did I know what was waiting just up the road for me.


than the guys show up but don't stop? I find out this was the problem

I was off and riding wind in my face and this road was sweet. I passed Richard and a few turns up, I was so crossed up the back tire was almost passing the front on my right side. I shut the throttle down and oh no! now the rear tire was passing me on the left and the front end tucked under. not good thing to be in a right hand turn and your back wheel passes you on the left. I was air born doing a forward flip and landed on my back and left side hard, the air knocked out of me, I thought I would be fine in a minute but the I could not get up. not good Richard and Paul showed up and Richard was trying to size up the damage (good man thank you Richard you did the right thing) but I just wanted my helmet off and to stand up. Than once I was up I could tell I was bad, I needed to get to the road before I couldn't ride. I think it was 38 miles to the hotel maybe more. I just went for it up the road about 15 miles, I found Erik and Tim. Tim was out of gas so I gave them my gas cans kicked my bike and was off again. Right after that I hit reserves I didn't think I would make it. If I run out of gas they will send the truck the pain at this point was bad I just wanted off the bike and to lay down. funny at first I just wanted up now I wanted to lay down so bad. I finally got to town and had no idea what the hotel name was I pulled in to the gas station got off my bike and sat down. I was done it was time for the truck. Tim and Erik got there and said that it right there about 150 yards if that.it was right next to the gas station I said get the truck and they did thanks guys.
here is one a few days after the color was just coming in
