We just used our Visa Debit cards at ATM's, paid the Pemex with Pesos. Didn't have any issues, and the exchange rate at the bank ATM's is usually the best. I wouldn't use a rinky-dink ATM, but at a reputable bank, we had no problems. We also carried some greenbacks in order to pay for a ride, tow or something like that when we wanted to sweeten the deal.

Well I'm signed up for this event. Don't know many folks on here but have been lurking around for a few years drooling.

I'm coming from the midwest and decided to take the easy route and ride an xr650. Looking forward to riding baja and seeing some vintage machines in action.

Last year NORRA had a each entry create a team page, and it was cool to be able to read about the other entries and their vehicles. They are not doing that this year, not sure why.

I noticed they did send a note out about the first 30 entries, hope they will continue to keep us updated. We were really interested in doing this on a vintage bike but decided that for our first one we would keep it simple and modern.. lol

They sent it out in an email but looks like the never added a link to it on the news page of the norra site. You can find it here: http://www.norra.com/release_2012_01_26.php

That guy with the #42 looks fast

It was a great race. Was my first time playing in the sand. I am sure the silt of Baja is a lot different but still gave me some good confidence. Never thought I would be in 5th gear with the throttle to the stop in stuff like this!



Was a good test of my prototype nav tower + faring as well.

The norra web site says 80 days until the Mexican 1000 but by my count it is actually only 74! Better start getting ready
