Beta makes a great bike. It's a dual sport that is great in the dirt. Nice on the road too with the 6 spd tranny. I rode a DRZ 400 for a few years, but the Beta is ten times the bike the DRZ was.

I rode that section twice this winter, just before new years and just after. It's one of the nicest rides in Baja and shouldn't be any problem for a KLR 650. Some steep edges and drop offs, dirt all...
