Made it to Land's End in Cabo

Loving the deep blue sea, dense concentration of pubs and restaurants, and cheekychic vibe

1/2 block from Cabo Wabo

Tecate to Cabo, glad to be experiencing it

Thoughts on off road Baja with riders 10 times better than I later after a few Topo Chicos

News Flash - El Tigre may be ready at the end of next week. I won't be ready for the beast but I'm ready for the TW200. Rhodetrip and wife rode from here to Cabo on fully loaded T-dubs a few weeks back

Knee is still swollen a bit but after 4 months, I gotta at least ride around the block on the little bike. Mrs. TC has said no to riding her F650 GS

I am hoping to head down to that clinic in March, chased by Mariscos de Mazatlan. Espero.

Tom: did you have an MRI of that knee? What are you doing for therapy? Takes time. I still have some swelling and discomfort after 10 months. Trice did a lot of conditioning before his injury, is younger, and I expect that he will have a quick recovery unless Mrs Trice gets wind of his Cabo Capers. She can run faster pushing a stroller than he can through the bush. (Double entendre fully intentional.)

He is in serious harm's way in Cabo. Tall, handsome, fit, fifty something dude with confidence, a sense of humor, money and a limp...perfect target for the predatory females of land's end Baja. They have already gone as far as they can go and are looking for the next diversion. Situational awareness buddy.

Add me to the list, right knee right side finished, thanks to a fall while...wait for it...walking in the street, last fall (autumn). Separated my left shoulder at the same time (second time for the shoulder). Had to take a cab, driver thought I had been in a fight. Got home and got the shoulder half way back in, went to the doctor's house the next day and he was able to get it back in place.

Brilliant idea!
We need to have a photo meeting here!
Yep, everyone brings their x-rays...
Winner gets free drinks at the Rivoli.
TC is likely going to win since he has the longest recovery.
RMO doubled down so we'll have to let the panel of judge(ettes)
make the call on that one.
Metal pieces will trump totally missing cartilage(s).

Surgeries prior to 2013 do not count.
Unless it included silicone and she's with you.

OK I think I win. A fall in the yard at my cabin and a poor GP diagnosis ended up with a hip replacement (x rays available)

I'll be at the Rivoli in about two weeks for the free drinks.

Do NOT miss CSL

It's Land's End, FG's sake.....get here, mate!

Life long friends. Life long experiences.

That's what was made this past week.

ˇˇRun Baja top to bottom!!

Edit/disclaimer: make sure you cherry pick the terrain to suit your abilities

There was gnarly stuff out here I just couldn't do

Other gnarly stuff I did for the first time but concentrating on it left no room to relax

Nice write up, Andy. You've been able to provide some good ideas for visiting riders, good detail. I will have to try that seafood place, if Manolo says it's good, I know it'll be good!
Thanks for the tip on that one.
