Hey CrashDBad, looking at your avatar tag "big man, little bike"', we might get along just fine. My 525 is often referred to as my "little girl's bike"

A bunch of us have lots of weekend routes down there. Make sure you give a shout when you start coming down.

I'm 6'5" and my main ride is 950 Super Enduro. That was from a brief period where I lost my senses and bought a WR250R which involved a lot of color metaphors involving primates pumping pigskin.

I'm heading out first weekend June and will leave the bike in SD. I'll post up here and shoot you a pm

dos semanas en Baja

Thought I'd throw a line out for any inmates that might be headed South. A buddy(GS800) and I(KTM990) are headed down to Cabo on as much dirt as possible. I'm a San Diego native, I've taken the Big Bitch down on several 4-5 day trips since last April. Our unofficial/play-by-ear plan is to lollygag, camp our way down. Anyone have a first-person fishing report from Loreto or La Paz? On that note, anyone know any bargain fishing charters they can PM? I don't plan on checking email unless I need to, but I'll be around until the morning of Saturday 5/17.
Salud!

So I'm in Cabo for Surf a Industry Summit and San Jose Del Cabo is full of race trucks, race cars and race bikes. The Mexican 1000 ended here the other day.

One of the big apparel companies marketing guys thought they were taking a short cut back from the East Cape the other day and couldn't figure out why there were big groups of people scattered around the dirt road they were on ... turns out they were on the course and promptly had the Federalis pull them over when they finally hit the pavement.

Silly surfers

Perry, I am truly fortunate to be working in an industry that is also a big part of my own personal activities ... now if I can just get this damn moto brand launched I'll have it ALL covered!
