Aw, Radek.
We were sad enough when you missed the Baja Wan-Thousand...
But when you couldn't make the Oso Tired Ride...


Matt's going to do a good job of bringing us all there, don't worry.



There's some video uploading now...

I sure appreciate the enthusiastic support for this RR. I’d like to acknowledge each one the way LittleWan does, but alas I type like a man-child and it’s painful and slow.
I’m trying to get to the dirt quicker. Please consider yourselves individually acknowledged.




Departure 2/2/14 continued

We all met up at Bartek’s place to touch base, share gps tracks and enjoy a great meal prepared by Mrs. Bartek. Thanks Mrs. B, I love your cooking!
Kelly had a chance to see everyone and catch up. It was a fun evening without a single picture taken.



This is Ceasar's new truck he named Farmageddon. He loves to tell the story of how he got it at auction for $800.
This whole rig looks sketchy, because it was.




We got an early start the next morning, heading for Tecate (for what should be an 11 hr. drive).

Radek (rburkat) was supposed to be joining us on this ride, but first he had a little something to take care of.
He was racing in King of the Motos.
I tasked LittleWan with keeping track of Radek’s status (i.e. is he too hurt to ride Baja?)
She surprised us with an e-mail link to a live feed of the race.
It was one of those moments where you’re completely dumbfounded by technology. Well, at least I was.

Nothing beats cruising down the highway in Farmageddon and watching somebody else race KOM.




Farmageddon has all the modern conveniences of a truck built in the 50’s, hand crank windows and electric windshield wipers.
To activate the wipers simply insert the fuse.


What will they think of next?



We must be getting closer.




Just before we crossed the border we heard from Radek. It was bad news. He wasn’t going to be able to make the ride. They don’t call it the King of Motos for nothing.
Radek was OK, but he and his bike were not quite up to starting a 2 week romp in Baja. That was a bummer, he would be missed.

We crossed the border in Tecate without any problems. In fact, you can now pay for your visa in the office.
No more going to the bank. That is a huge improvement.


The last little hurdle before making it to Rancho Ojai was a minor traffic violation. Osito accidentally blew through a stop sign.
A quick trip to the police station and $60 and we were on our way.



We were stopped again within 200 ft of leaving the police station. We were let go because they had already fleeced us. There’s a bit of a racket going on down there.
No matter, we had made it to our destination and cabin for the night. After only 15 or so hours.
