The only mechanical issue was with the lost countershaft sprocket nut. We had a few fasteners loosen, but we just tightened them up. The story is sprinkled around on the CSC blog, which I write. You can start here and poke around a bit on it if you want to read more about the trip:

http://californiascooterco.com/blog/?p=16498

We were on the new RX3 250 adventure bike, which performed well. The ride was a promotion we ran (our Baja Inaugural Run) and we had 15 riders on participate. Folks flew in from Georgia, Florida, DC, Washington state, Texas, and elsewhere. We went down to Santa Rosalia on the Sea of Cortez. It was a lot of fun, and we'll probably do it again next year. We have another ride leaving next week for the Overland Expo event. On the Baja ride, this was our route...



And this was our itinerary...



The bruise to which you referred above was not from a fall; it was from an insect. At one point, we went through an area with wasps or bees (never did find out which) and 4 or 5 of us got stung. That guy's arm swelled up like he had a golf ball under his skin.

The song is Mule Skinner Blues, and the group is the Fendermen.
