I've got to get back to Baja one of these days.
hi joe. thanks for stopping by.

originally, we had 10, and 8 showed up.

we lost 1 rider on the first day - his bike fell off the truck and sustain a major damaged.

next day, 1 rider sprained his ankle at laguna diablo, then had to be escorted by another rider back to socal. the remaining 5 riders proceeded to san felipe and gonzaga bay.

at the end of the third day, the berg's rear sprocket ran out of teeth. next day, he had to get a ride from another rider back to tecate and get his truck. one rider had to go home.

by the 4th and 5th day, only todd and i were the last men riding.

i felt bad for the others. this ride was in the planning for at least 4 months. really happy with my trusty 2002 ktm 640e. took me to a lot of places and been reliable for a while. only thing i've done lately is replaced the 4 year old odyssey with a lighter shorai.

that bike has been great and economical. just 2 weekends ago, i took it for a 500 mile ride to carrizo - pozo - hi mountain - camino cielo (above santa barbara) with no hiccup. wore out the rear 606 by the time i got home.

tune in, i have the pozo palooza ride report coming up soon.
