San Felipe to Gonzaga bay is all new pavement,

Gonzaga to Hwy 1 past Coco's pretty easy ride, it was in October anyway when I went through there...

I rode off road to Ensenada, a chunk of it on segments of the Baja SCORE 1000 course, so I can't comment on any paved routing from Tecate to Ensenada.

I have only crossed once so am merely offering my experience. I'm sure any crossing is fine.

I'm torn between the San Felipe route, and following in your tire tracks, Dave.
I'll be motel/hoteling it - probably more options - and more gas? - on #1?
Hmmm???
I would have gone down the East side but the road was washed out last September.

Thanks - just what I needed to know.

Since Mexico is close-by (to the US) and is a good step to becoming an ADVrider, perhaps we should recruit.
Let sleeping dogs lie. We don't want Ugly American types causing problems for the rest of us.

If you're going to go into the basement, you might as well at least sample one of the few threads down there worth reading.

The Smoker Is Lit

Lots of good information and inspiration to be found in that thread. Who doesn't love a good slab of meat smoking away on a lovely day. That thread will make you hungry just looking through it. Click on the latest posts in that thread - it's really evolved into a great source of all things BBQ.

Much more edifying than the typical douchebaggery crap found throughout the various levels of Jo momma.

Adventure Bike Trailside Repair Guide

Got this link off of the ADV Pulse FB page

I can't vouch for it yet as I've not received my electronic copy, but the link above is for "pre-orders" of the free guide once they're done polishing it up.

That's their quote, and might be true for a lot of us. However, I always seem to find something new in any publication. This will be an add for me.

Baja route 5 - couple more questions

I'll be riding solo KTM 990, Mexicali to Cabo San Lucas via San Felipe/Coco's Corner, #1, next week.
Can anyone tell me the longest stretch without fuel? KTM has about 300 km / 190 mi range, and I'm just going to buy a gas can and strap it on the tail rack to use as needed, but I guess I should know what size to buy. (a little planning goes a long way)
And second - does anyone have recommendations for reasonable and decent accommodation along the way?
Thanks for your help and indulgence - I've been searching this thread and got some great hints so far, but over 1500 pages is a bunch!

+1 on this. On one trip we had an aduanero find a problem with a rider's paperwork, then proceed to tell how to fix the issue. Though on another trip we had a rider fall foul of the barrier at customs. It is not always triggered by the mass of a motorcycle.

I have had trouble with those barriers not lifting; especially at Reynosa.
