Yeah actually I do need something.... that poster!!



and it was really nice to run into you.....I got to prove that you exist.


Yesterday we stayed in Mulege. It was essentially destroyed in a hurricane a few years ago so the rebuilding process is very much under way. a few of the roads are nearly impassable as we discovered but its still a pretty cool town

had a crazy highway ride yesterday from Loreto to La Paz where i amassed hundreds of butterflies and bugs on the bike and helmet. Thought nothing of it when I was going to bed last night. This morning I woke up and grabbed my helmet to notice in horror my helmet was covered in spiders and ants.

Today's ride is going to be.....interesting. Never worn a nest on my head before.

We did the AMAZING stretch of road from Loreto to Santa Rosalia today. Santa Rosalia is a pretty cool town. It's like the old west meets Monterey, Ca but Mexico style...... definitely worth checking out.

We are heading into Guerrero Negro tomorrow to have a beer with some ADV riders, then up and out in a few days....

then I can finally start uploading pictures to tell our dammed story!

The sunrise/sunsets here are something else though.... holy crap

yesterday we made it back to San Diego after a crazy scramble through rush hour Ensenada and then a lovely ride up through the vineyards of northern Baja and about a two hour wait at the border on a monday afternoon(?!).

We will be home in a few hours and ill start the picture editing/uploading process.....then I can actually talk about the trip... stay tuned!

ok.... here we go.


This trip for us wasn't really.... planned. My work situation has been haywire for quite some time and I wasnt sure if I was goin to get any time off for the holidays then I was then all of a sudden I was finished for the year and we had some actual time to rub together.
So we decided to go and we wanted to go to Mexico so we just started packing a few days in advance and left without any real plan. The only things that we had actually scheduled were two days in San Clemente, Ca and two days in Rosarito Beach, Baja (both on Travel Zoo deals that we could NOT pass up).

Since we have done a few trips in the past we were pretty diligent about packing - but it never seems like it when you get it all on the bike.

the morning of setting off



as I posted before - setting out into rush hour traffic fully loaded always puts me right in a good mood...








some of you might be familiar with my LawnMower incident - well I had never gotten around to replacing the brake lines and I had a new set of Speiglers that I was going to have installed on that morning..... I had a feeling it wasn't going to work but the Speigler guy was very confident that it WOULD work....



Nope. Two hours and a few hundred bucks later we rolled out of Irv Seaver with the stock lines dangling around the fork and the Speiglers in the top box..... cant wait to do three weeks through Mexico!



finally out on the road and starting to cool off from being pissed all morning



mmmmmmmmmm.....bewbs....



we got a deal at this little surf motel for a few nights and I'd never been to San Clemente, so what the hell right?







it was a nice little spot.

right down the street there was this little surf shop that had a sign in the window that actually said "Gone Surfing" - I didn't know people actually did that. It made me want to go back!



....and two blocks down from our hotel? The grand opening of Montgomery Motorcycles - a vintage ONLY shop... and sooooo cool.

























they were having their grand opening night that night....big party - band etc



they were raffling off this sweet little Honda



it was a really cool shop.

we rode around a bit. Checked out Dana Point



While looking at the map I noticed that the Ortega Highway was right near us.... the wife knew we HAD to go.







Ortega was fun and we had a blast navigating our way back to San Clemente via some really fun back roads.






our trip was barely even started.... the sky was still the limit....

We had a nice few days in San Clemente and we hopped on the road to get down to San Diego to visit one of quyens close friends.



the GS looks ridiculous even next to a Victory



arrived in SD





because it was us, we instantly found a neighborhood cat



who was nice enough to test out the strength of our tent



and our friends' dogs were interested....



we went up to the Cabrillo Monument for our first sunset of the trip....





we had the honor to watch a submarine heading in - it's enough to make you swell with pride.

very cool to see at this moment during the sunset.



me and the wife





the wife and her friend





wife at sunset





crappy panormamaama
