Hey, when your on the 3rd day in the same scivvies a washing machine is an awesome thing! Sheri did load us up with copious amounts of seafood, and even made us fresh ceviche from our catch. I don't think it's possible to go to Shari's and not eat well!

Okay, so we've all met Shari.....



We continued to party on into the night.



Jay broke out his grill.....

I got him one of these for Christmas.....so I wouldn't have to carry it....



Assembly proved daunting in his current condition....they ought to issue these things to the cops for sobriety checks....




but muscle memory finally prevailed.....



...and we fired that sucker up!!!!



We blessed and prepped the meat.....






...not quite ready....




....cookin!!!



Taters prepped....



anxiously waiting...



Stoking the flames..



...and finally ready....




"Don't play with your food!" ...



Oddly enough, the rest of the night was kind of a blur....

More later.....

So another lovely morning....and it was time to go....

Good thing Jay was with me or I might have just plopped my ass down there for the remainder of the trip...

Seriously, as I've said before...put this place on your bucket list. You have been advised....

Shari whipped up another great breakfast...



Eggs, waffles and fruit salad.....



We packed up chit and rolled back out...this time on the upper road which was sand, but better packed owing to more traffic and the moisture from the night's fog....

Said our goodbye's the Shari (you saw the lobster pic....smelled like fish, BTW...)



So long to BA.....



...and headed back the way we came....





Back through pot-hole alley....


....and through GN again....



Followed Mex1 to Santa Rosalia on the Sea of Cortez side....





Went by San Ignacio....but passed by as we will be returning there later....

Finally the Sea of Cortez is with us again.....



Rolled through Santa Rosalia after getting some gas..




Rolled through Mulege'....where we debated stopping but chose to continue on to Loreto....

Some Mulege' shots...





...and on towards Loreto....passing some killer beaches....







Jay self portrait...


Pee/butt break....


Where we met the tired cactus.......



Moving on....


Until we finally got to Loreto.....
Tooled up and down the Malecon looking for likely spots but wanted to find The Oasis which had gotten good reviews from other inmates.....

Wandered around....


Until finally the hallowed ground was reached....




Guy showed us the room and said we could park the bikes by the room....Hell Yeah!!!!

The room....All the way the the right.....bar next door.....


Looking out the window........



Jay ecstatic at having his iphone working again....


We unload and begin to relax.....Ordered up a couple of ice cold Pacifico's with lime from the bar literally right next door and got to work...



Jay's self portrait....



More of Jay's amazing pics....mine all sucked...










More to come....

uuhhh

I am not happy with this report ------- you are showing everyone how much fun Baja is, can be, was, will be without riding in the dirt or camping or not drinking-well, I've never done it without drinking but seems you guys are doing a nice job of staying sober-FOR BREAKFAST!!!! Thanks for showing and telling others about this fantastic place-and that it is so enjoyable on a pavement ride with nice bikes-don't have to rip through the dirt,rocks,sand to have a blast in Baja. done it both ways before big bikes little bikes, doesn't matter, its just a fun damn place. continue on!!! this is an awesome rr guys!!!!!!

Okay, off work and have a few minutes......dayum these ride reports take a long time....I gotta give kudos the all those who have done these things multiple times. They suck time from your life in an amazing fashion.....

Anyway, enough whining....lets go back to Baja!!

Soo...Jay and I decided to hit the restaurant attached to The Oasis....mostly because it was about 15 yards from our room...

We both ordered a rum and pineapple juice...that tasted like zero rum...So we ordered and second set of rum and pineapple juice asking for more rum....and tasted minimal rum....for future reference we will handle our own rum drinks....with the associated perils....


I ordered up some cerviche and Jay Camarones y Callos (shrimp and scallops in garlic) as appetitzers.

I think this is Jays....






Both were amazing, fresh and tasty!!

We got some fish tacos...that apparently neither one of us found worthy of a photo....

And off to bed....

And then Sunrise comes to Loreto.....



























Sorry for so many sunrise shots but Jay took some great ones that I think were worth posting....


So...the plan was to head to La Paz and land wherever we could find a spot. Turns out (per Shari...take that for what it's worth...) this was the start of a big holiday week for Mexico owing to Jesus and stuff.... Nonetheless, we we're heading on (with vows to hit this place again on the return flight.....)

None of the usual pack up shots as we were trying to get an early start to get to La Paz and grab a room....

Leaving Loreto....


Bahia Conception...








...and heading into the mountains...which proved to be a delightful road....







EVERYONE needs a mini Super Jessie!!!!!!

(Jay's hawt/petite fiance is named Jessie....)



Obligatory stop to pee shot....



....and finally rolled into La Paz....



Gassed up, stocked up the coolers with beer and ice.....wanted to take some pics of some truly hot Senoritas but lurking boyfriends/fathers made me decide discretion was better part of valor.....
I did not want the snot beat out of me by some pissed off boyfriend/father...

My only real defense would have been shitting myself, throwing up and falling on the ground crying.....sort of a skunk/squid/possum defense......

At least Jay would have gotten some great photo's.........

Anyway, cruised the Malecon trying to find a hotel where we could park the bikes off the street...and pretty much everything was booked....

Wandered the streets....






looking for our last hope....


Hotel Yeneka....

mentioned by a few inmates....

Until at last we found it!!


We were cooking....about 90 degrees with ATGATT.....
Walked in and they said "no problemo" with bringing the bikes inside....although observing the steps and junk everywhere we elected to leave the bikes outside locked and cabled....

Coming up....the going gets WEIRD!!!!!!

So, if I follow in your footsteps I can leave the R1200GSA at home and take the GoldWing? Kewl!

Sorry mate...not all that much difference between the two.....

If'n you're planning on serious off-road....get a 250.....

As mentioned (many times...) in our intro and ride....

This is a fake adventure......

YMMV.......


(BTW, have owned an R1200GSA......)
