I should have had Mark get some stickers for the bike from that dealership. From the time he knocked on the door until he was back on the road after having the flywheel replaced under 4 hours had elapsed.

I figger they are about 20 hours out of PHX. I don't know why they would drive straight through, though.
You can see your own spot history when logged in, can't see others.

a virtual crap should take only a nano second

of course longer if paper work is required!

Can't wait to see what you come up with! It will be good to see you down there! and thanks again for letting me hitch a ride with Jade back from the '10 B1K from La Paz. Good times!

I'm calling this "15x rides again"

This is all super last minute, really, I only have this week (4 days) of prep. I was in Baja all of last week (nowhere near the course) and also totally screwed-up my back last week. I'm behind the 8-ball to be ready and fast so I'm going about it differently....

Not all places allow it. Some people wing it with an Avis (or whatever) but the Baja cops know what's up with rentals and if for any reason you interact with a cop and your rental isn't legal down there you'd be at their mercy.
There is a place in San Diego call California Baja Rental (CaBaja.com?) that primarily rents to Baja travelers (even 4wd's). Maybe they can help?
Be sure whatever you get is legal and fully insured for down there.
Just make sure it has Load range E tires, one of the inmates rented an F150 for the '06 B1K and blew four tires on the road from Chapala to our Desert Assassins/ADV pit just north of Gonzaga. They were cheapo chinese tires iirc.

Not sure of the dealership name but it was in Russellville AR. Google only shows 1 there so I assume this is them:

http://www.cogswellmotors.com/index.htm

They got there after they closed but were able to get someone to look at the van first thing in the morning and were on the road before noon!
