I've never been to Baja and I don't know what makes a Baja ride report really exceptional. There are a few on the front pages of Ride Reports. Any favorites?

It's not exactly a ride report per-se, but this thread has the best pics of Baja that I've yet seen:

I'm planning a two-week trip into Baja and back through the Copper Canyon for the first two weeks of April, if you want to come We are four bikes right now but I plan to invite advrider soon.

Annette rides solo from Alaska to Argentina. She's at Tikal right now.

As she says:

I updated the first page by editing-in links to the ride reports that we've all been posting. I didn't put many non-advrider links on the first page, but my criteria is pretty subjective. Also, I really am not an expert at all on Mexico/Baja reports. If anyone wants to compile them, I can put them in their own section, in post #2. If I miss any that have already been posted, and any of you think they should be on the front page, just let me know.

Just a question: Do the people who do these charity rides use the donated money to pay for their expenses on the ride, and then give the excess to the charity, or do they pay for their own expenses of the ride?

Max,

That works great. Thanks for the time and effort in doing it.

Here's one you might or might not want to add to the 1st page. I discovered it while reading about riding 2 up on a China bike in Colombia.

He does have a link to AdvRider on his blog.

Good find! I'll add it to the first page.

Now could someone please start nominating some Baja and Mexico reports.

Just check out Gaspipe's RRs, he's done two within the last six months with one current right now. I forget the name. Something like how many beers can you drink or the like.

I added these:
Throttlemeister nominated Gaspipe's Baja 2009: How Many Beers Did We Drink Last Night? and A Few Gaspipe Days of Baja Norte....

Give me a link to what I'm missing?

The Mexican Titty Bar Tour, by Laoutbacktrail, where he finally- after how many tries? makes it into Mexico! "December '08- January '09 Sierra Madres Oriental. Including Galeana and Real de Catorce. 1000 miles of dualsporting, 700 miles of dirt! Three guys, three seisciento cincuentas. KLR650, BMW F650GS Dakar, XR650L"
I just saw this! Dude, I only tried one other time! And gave up after blowing my budget ($200 for the whole week that I wanted to be in Mexico). Not to mention the rain! 6 inches in 2 days! I talked with a lady the other day from McAllen and remembered that.... she got a good laugh when I told her I was riding my motorbike through there.

Rain, blown budgets, blah blah- what did you expect?! It happens to all of us. Some have wives to explain to, others have kids or... blah blah. You have top-billing in the Mexico portion of this thread. How about some provacative almost-naked lady pics?

RIDE! TAKE PHOTOS! MAKE SHIT UP! POST A RIDE REPORT!

Like this one, from Flash412: Touring Tierra del Fuego &tc. about riding around southern South America and hardly talking at all. Awesome photos.
