If you like the missions, be sure to go to San Javier just outside Loreto! That ride up there is one of my favorite in all of Baja!

When did you ride to San Javier?
Did you use your KLR?
What was the road like?
Good double on a KLR?

It's almost all Blacktop now. But still a great place to visit.

Thanks my wife and I will be in Loreto in our RV this winter. That sounds like a ride she will like.

It was late December and I was on the KLR. The road was awesome; or should I say the ride is awesome and the road is fine. It is paved for a long way then gets a little rough but you'll be fine on the KLR. Trust me - this is an amazing ride and the mission is the best in Baja!

For anyone interested in the missions, I enjoyed this book immensely!

Author: Marquis McDonald.
Title: BAJA: LAND OF LOST MISSIONS.


Back in the late 40s these two army buddies took off in a Jeep and visited all 37 missions in Baja and even found the ruins of the tiny building that Kino built upon first setting foot on the peninsula. It was so fascinating I read the book in one sitting!

Late last year the first 14 miles were paved. They added on to it?

Yep, quite a bit of it. It is suppose to paved all the way to the mission by the end of the year. Lot's of construction right now. The rest of the road after the construction is smooth graded road.







Definitely a place to see.



BTW great ride report. Most of those trails you road are where we ride on the Rip To The Tip.

Thanks for the feedback

crashmaster – Thanks! Really there is no reason for me to complain about ridding Baja and Calamajue is to come, sounds like you had perfect conditions

wachs - Much appreciated

TemeculaRider – Thanks for the tips, I will definitely have to see the Mission.

SP's Dad –Camper Shell was definitely super green with all the hurricanes, it was pretty amazing, thanks!

beechum1 - Thanks

Trey650 – Thanks for the input, I almost put up a clip of your Rock Trail fun on YouTube, thanks for coming along

Day 7: Out to the Junk Yard

Photobucket

We woke up to wet roads. It had rained most the night and after navigating the in-town water crossings looking for breakfast on a Sunday morning in the sleepy little one hotel town, with two restaurants and no gringos we had to settle on a convenience store breakfast. On our way out of town it was almost impossible keeping our ass end behind our front on account of the mud. Mark did one of the nicest FMX style whips I’ve seen without even leaving the ground. After grubbing down on our bananas and various fruit bars with a nice view of the desert just out of town we headed back out for a lot of beach.

Photobucket

At one point it looked like some fishermen were trying to homestead along the beach by putting up miles of fence and little palapas every so often. Larry didn’t think there has been any homesteading in Mexico for a long time, but nonetheless, they had a lot of supplies hauled out to the middle of nowhere.

Before long we were in the Junk Yard of the Pacific, Malarrimo Beach. We checked out the various junk, odd toys, and bits of rope, ate some peanut butter and honey tortillas and made way inland.

(oh yea, after my lonely ride over to Bay of LA I forgot to unplug my headlight before I attached my gas can and ended up cracking my headlight lens, let me know if anyone has a stock one laying around for sale)

We then passed by the little salt flats.

After a bit of slab we were checking out the lodging in the working class town of Vizcaino and decided not to stay at the one next to the bus stop.

Trip coming up soon

There are a couple of tracks you rode that we unhappily passed on the last 2 trips. Nothing more than altering loop travel in an effort not to backtrack.I am hoping to complete those this time. Thanks for the report, really makes me "jones" that much more for BAJA. We were there in March also, just 3 of us. Riding in Baja is always been the most meaningful ride of the year for me. Year after year they only get better. I look forward to reading the rest of your report & keep the pics coming. Thanks, Joe

TemeculaRider – here is a bit more for you Sir.

Jwats – thanks, have a good trip maybe we will see you out there, I know how you feel though this is giving me the Baja itch pretty badly too.

Here comes a bit more for your Friday enjoyment.
