Great Ride Report and your photography really is getting better. I really like the sunrise shots.

Just caught this & had to read the whole thing. Very nice report--almost like being there with you. I've read lots of reports of Baja but have never been.

It's even more fun riding with like-minded people. That and taking the time to really experience the area.

Thanks for the ride....

I did and she apologized profusely to me saying that you looked so pathetic standing there that she did out of compassion.

Barry, Barry, Barry......... I'll look worse than that, anytime, just to get a hug from Becky. In fact, tomorrow I just might go see her and look even more "pathetic". I'll give her the lost puppy look.

Much better, now if you can make that weird white blotch go away that would even better.
Five minutes with Windows Live Photo Gallery with the 'retouch' function (comes in Windows 7 and XP).

Put daughter on a plane and now catching up.

That was wonderful LB. I enjoyed you candid wit and photography is catching to moments. Looks like you had a great group there. I think I met Lee and the HC last spring, Oldtimer I met way back.

Lee... that TW is a great little mule; I had one 14 years and never ever gave me any grief.... come to think of it the stator went out and that's about it.

. You have an advantage over me. At least until Becky moves to Texas.

Super report

You guys gave a good name to AARP for a change. I enjoyed the read.

Next time you go, take in the hot springs at Puertocitos on the Sea of Cortez, in town, on the water's edge. They have a few concreted pools there and when the tide comes in the cold water mixes with the hot water and then there's usually a pool with the right water temps for soaking. The pools are too hot at low tide.

I think they are charging 5 dollar now if you aren't a resident.

Thanks, I like that. And now I need to find out about that Windows Live Photo Gallery with the 'retouch' function - since I have XP I'm guessing I must have it and just need to look for it and learn to use it.

Hi Sam,

Yes, you met Lee at Hells Canyon. Becky and I made sure she met all the important people.

Looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks in Portland.

Well, she was smiling when she returned. She's probably busy snowmobiling right now but my guess is she will pop back in here sooner or later.

You two are goof balls. Fun to have around but most certainly goof balls.

Hey thanks. It's nice to know that we give AARP a good name

Bruce would probably like those hot springs, he likes hot springs.

Hi,

Thanks for posting your first post on this thread and welcome to ADV.

There were times when the 650 would have been more comfy but the 200 is always easier for me to handle. I get a kick out of riding the 200 so I rarely wish I had the 650 over the 200.
