instead of taking the road where all 4 wheel vehicles go to, go up the hill (residential area) south of the border crossing road. one of those streets will cut into the front. there are concrete barriers, find one with an opening wide enough for the bike.

same as in the tijuana crossing, take the road that's assigned for emergency vehicles, then ride through the concrete barriers to get into the u.s bound lanes. even a gsa will fit....ask big todd.

Laguna Diablo is an amazing playground. FYYFF was a little nervous of the high speed runs I was taking on his 990. I gave him his bike back and he rode off and pulled this ....

Weird thing about Ersin's bike, the seat had a little red stain when I got on it. Then remembered this trip popped his Baja cherry
