Kyle, you definitely get an E for effort but probably a good idea not to follow my tracks as there are some sections ahead that are quite sandy, rocky and very remote.
How did you like the ride today all in all? More photos pahlease!

You will still have a good time riding down there on less technical routes for sure.
Feel free to e-mail me for any advice or input if you like and keep us updated on your journey

Question Brother!

If you're hurt/stuck in the middle of nowhere, you're leaving us some GPS tracks somehow?

Nice photos.

Learning sand: I have a Yamaha wrr, which is similar to your Honda. Mine came with Bridgestone tires. I made several attempts to ride 13 mile long Camp Creek Wash in Scottsdale; all failures. I gave up for a couple days and rode elsewhere. But that wash bothered me. Finally I slapped a new set of Michelin T63 tires on it and made another attempt. Presto, end to end in about 30 minutes.

Looking forward to more. I think those flats where between Mexicali and San Flippy. My son has a gopro vid of that section during the 2012 Mexican 1000. He's pinned at 96mph and Robby Gordon's Hummbuggy comes by on his right doing a buck thirty!

Looking forward to first hand account of the road damage down in Baja Sur in the wake of the September storms.

Don't take the single tracks by yourself too easy to get hurt, plus you will miss a lot of the best places in Baja
