Horsepower Ranch is turning into one of my favorite stops in Baja. Rodrigo is a great host and makes what might be the best margarita ever. Here is our crew from the after Christmas trip with a few empty margarita cups



Oh yeah, Rodrigo grills up some good grub too



Can't wait for the next trip

Here's hoping to see and hear about past and future Baja Adventures!

Great idea for a thread!

Looking for tracks of good single track to hit along the way.... Rock trail, 22 day trail, Jim's trail and Campershell have all been mentioned to me but I am looking for GPS tracks if anyone has them and is willing to share.

Basically I've seen a lot of the race course and not a lot of the true treasures that Baja has to offer. Looking for the "off the beaten path" adventures and good technical single track that we can mix in along the way.

A group of us, only a few on advrider, are headed south on March 22nd for 10 days in Baja. We're doing a clockwise loop down to Mike's & gulf side. Then Bill Nichols singletrack in the Bay of L.A & Catavina areas. The youtube videos make me drool;



Then up the Pacific side to Coyote Cal's & back to Tecate.

Look on Ride Reports tread (21 days in baja) and you will see the ride Scott and I did, I only could go as far as Bay of LA on that trip but you sound like your going to have some fun thats for sure.
That is a NICE ride report & trip!

I wish I could leave TOMORROW!!!

Baja question

I'm looking to ride down to Cabo - but given my time limitations, I only really have time to do a one-way. I don't want to rush the journey and miss the sights or worse, crash badly because I was in a hurry.

What I would like to do is ride from San Diego, down to Cabo, then have my bike (Husaberg FE570) shipped back the the SF Bay Area, and I'll fly back to San Diego and pick up my truck and drive that back home.

Has anyone else done this? Any shipping recommendations?

Hmmm, I think there could be a long line of volunteers to ride a Husa 570 from Cabo to SD.

Not my video, but one of many I found on youtube of singletrack I will ride next month! March 22-April 1st. I can't wait!

I'm leading a No.Cal ride (Lost Coast & Trinity Alps) that weekend in May. So.Cal guys do seem to enjoy the heat more than No.Cal guys.

Have FUN!

I guess those posts about stevodadevo (Dana Neisler) got moved down to inmates...
(thread link here)

Which is too bad for anyone interested in visiting his memorial.
I'm going to quote kkug to keep some info here, in this thread, if you guys don't mind:

Dana,s riding buddy Sondra went last weekend and put one up. In a few months we will probley get a more permanent one . So stop and pay your respects to a great guy.










I didn't get the information in time to give it to BigWan for his ride, which is a bummer.
Hope others go visit and take photos for Sondra.


Anyway, BigWan's ride report is live now. The guys made it to Kurt Caselli's memorial.
They also did some stuff that big bikes don't normally do - Window Rock, Green Door Trail, etc...
Lots of baja pics and video coming up...
Here's a link if anyone is interested: OSO LOCO!! Baja Edition: Oso Tired - Sand and Singletrack. And Rocks. And Snow
