boonie go,s to baja in search of legendary riders


This is a true story and its so good im gonna tell it
I was sitting with my motorcycle machinest bullshiting with him ( i like b.s.ing ) and he told me a story, he said one of his good buddies ( he is in the hall of fame ,ama for desert racing ) hangs out in there compound somewhere deep in baja. He went on to tell me that these guys are so hardcore they have gotten into these deep canyon situations where they have to take there bike apart and hike them out in peices cause they cant ride them out. I QUICKLY SAID OH MAN I GOTTA MEET THESE GUYS !!!
I love technical riding, no i love rideing...anyways...can you bealieve he would not tell me how to find them....its true. it reminded me of being a surfer and no one wanting to know youre secret spot....
well long story short , he never did tell me there names ony the storys of them rideing in perfect conditions and chasing young latinas around...
But I am pretty internet savy and I did find them, I did go down there, I did ride 20 somedays straight with them, we did become good friends, and i got to go back to his garage and tell him all about it after i did it !!!
I have tons of pictures too
Does anyone wanna here this story ?

These guys take me to this DOWNHILL...
Funny one of my favorite things to do is to turn a downhill into a uphill...i call it going backwards.
The group stayed at the top of the hill...i descended to the bottom. This was gonna be a tuff one. they were nice to snap this photo at the top summit

My passion for rideing at the time of these storys was huge...i was like a caged animal for 15 years that just got let out....
Quick explanation . .1990 or so i received news that two of my rideing buddies.. [ flying mike brown and brian manley ] were paralised from rideing...it freaked me out in many ways..my wife was pregnant with the 2nd child at the time..i had huge responsibilitys so i stopped rideing dirtbikes even though it was my favorite thing to do....now go to 2007....yes 17 years later....kids are old enough to be on there own...a friend gave me basically one of ryan mills Rockstar energy Supercross bikes.
I got back on a bike and it was love at first sight....totally adicted . ..before i know it i have 8 dirtbikes and i am totally stooked to ride..i get a place where i ride from my back yard and i couldnt be happy r . I end up with about 10 rideing buddies...and walla life is killer.....now baja story...my machinest tells me these guys in baja ride all the time.so much they moved there 20 years ago..he wont hook me up but go's on to say they build special bikes for the knarley stuff...small bore 4 strokes then stroke um and port um etc. He says they make fun OF KTM.S..(perfect..
Thats what ill take....one of my 300.s)
i think to myself...he says every day they ride new places and there old guys like me. He says they have dozens of young gurlfriends they entertain at night drinking margaritas and giving them rides in there 4x4.s..i keep listening patiently to these stories hopeing to get some hints on who these lucky guys are...he says he cant give me there phone numbers cause there in paradise and they dont want to be exposed....my friend is anti-utube etc..he explained they were like the odd couple..one totally private and the other totally social...
I looked for the social one !
Lol
I used the info i gathered...useing keywords on forums etc. I end up with 5 possabilities...i get there phone numbers and call them one at a time.
Does anyone wanna here my baja story.
I have a1000 plus photos

OK at the beginning of the story I explained my machineest friend did not want me to find these guys. I didn't want him to know I was gonna find them so I did not keep him up to date. I went behind his back and look for one of the guys on the Internet. I never did let the machinist no until months later after I hung out with his friend for a month.That's what made it so great laugh out loud. I had enough information about these two guys that if I did talk to one of them I would know that I found them. So when I called the four or five possibilities up on the phone and talked with them for a while I was hoping I would know I have the right guy and that's exactly what happened.
