and rear view


I don't even notice the case when I am ridding, and like with anything scooter related, I have gotten some comments I don't like, some are funny such as "were are the tamales?" and "ok we have a BIG cooler!, go get the beer!"

Yes I think it is bigger than I need, but I wanted a case to hold my helmet, so this the size that I need it, but maybe a givi would have been better, but what the hell right?!

So I went on a 20 mile ride the other day and I was like so far "away from home" thinking I was on my cross country trip, nothing but the sounds of the waves, surfers, the sun and keeping and eye out for Suv's and 18 wheelers that don't like 45 mph scooters on the 35 mph hwy! (yes I was speeding!!!) Still it was like so coool!!

Excellent Box, it looks very "ADV" !!! It is much better than a Givi or a Vespa Correos Box. How much did it cost you in MXN or USD? I want one for my Vespa PX.

ok I have to agree, it looks better, I am thinking of putting a sign that read "Tacos, tameles and tortas" on the back! lol!!! just to keep up with comments from other people.

The box was done by a friend welder, and he charge me $130usd dolars but he gave me a discount at the end.It is mounted on the plate I had for the KLR, but you do not need it as the bike has a nice rack. The dimentions are 35 or 37 liters, 17x14x12 something like that. My HJC flipup size M fits either horizantal or vertical, and there is plenty of space left.

Are you interested in one?

No top box is complete without an ADV sticker on it!



That ADV sticker will make your scooter much more off road capable

Have you seen this one from HT? 57 liters for a top box, how about it?
http://www.happy-trail.com/Luggage/A...-58-Liter.aspx

or maybe this other from Givi monokey 55 L
http://www.happy-trail.com/Luggage-G...okey-Givi.aspx

I think I don't want them for my bike but everybody is different

it is actually $1430 on sale, with a $400 discount, and I guess that lower taxes and cheaper labor (this bike is made in Mexico) will do it.

a little ride!

well after several days of wanting to go for a ride I finally went of the "official south testing route" it is a 50 mile round trip from Ensenada to La bufadora.



the day was a little gray and fresh and it had rain so why not? so I went. First I hat to get my Beat from my parents house,


and then we went south taking hwy #1, do you know why it is call that way? Because it is the ONLY one! yes hwy comes from Tijuana and it ends in Cabo San Lucas (at the other end of the Peninsula, some 1,000 + miles south).

The scooter feels nice and lite at a constant 40-45 mph. I was shooting for La Bufadora but before I got there I saw a sign that read "La lobera 3 km" so lobo = wolf so lobera would be translate as the place of wolfs, so I said there is no way we have 4 legged wolfs here, so I guess there are talking about sea wolfs!!! lets go!!!



The road is actually close, but the gate has like 3 ft to right of dirt and you can easy ride there on a bike-scooter-bicycle. You will be face with 2 miles of these:



and you will have to turn around but yo get these views:




I wanted to go down there, maybe next time on the KLR


local fishing:


for this pic I wished I had my D-SLR the one 2 hours before I said "I don't need it" It is a bird pray (hawk like)


I was so happy to see it fly, and I did miss the shoot with my point and shoot, but I did gave thanks to the animal gods for letting me see it in the wild! they are so pretty!!!

Lets go to la bufadora!!
We made it!!!

If you have never been to La bufadora, on a good day this is what you will see:



during my college years I was a tour guide so I went here like 40 times during 1 summer, and if you ever come I will take you there, so I did not wanted to go all the way there, so the entrance to the flee market was enough. One sad thing, it was too early for anything to be open, so I had to wait for breakfast, so I started the drive back and found this sign that remains me of something, don't know what:



I ate looking at this:


it was a fine Saturday! I love my Beat!!

You've got some great riding and scenery around there.

Your scooter should be able to handle dirt roads like those.
