Chabon!!

Nice report bro - stumbled upon it as I ponder doing Baja solo... No F650 for the trip, eh? Was the idea to stay as light as possible? You see any issues with me rolling with the jesse bags? Multiple stream crossings? I've still gotta ponder this idea, but it seems like it's a recurring bucket list item...

Hi Jon! The idea was to be able to pick up my bike! Didn't have too on this trip, no tip overs. Not much water in Baja, we had no crossings, if raining there might be some streams running???

Jesse bags are fine, just don't crash. If you do go down, soft is much more forgiving. You can make the trip as easy or technical as you want. All pavement, mix it up, or heavy on the dirt (sand actually). We didn't have much sand, but its best to know a little about sand BEFORE you get into it.

No security problems, very light traffic, nice roads (better than California), nice people.
