The mexican job - dallas to mexico to los angeles

I have been day dreaming about an adventure ride for years now. Last April a group of my friends and myself, took a ride from LA to San Fran trying to hit every curvy road we could. The idea was that maybe by doing that I can hold off with the real trip for a while. Well it didn't work. I still cannot afford the time to go all out, so a plan has brewed in my head.
Start from home also known as Dallas, TX ride down to the border do a u turn in Mexico and come out at San Diego head to L.A. ship the bike back to Dallas and catch a flight back. I have allowed 10 days for this trip, and have come up with an initial itinerary.

I would love some comments, suggestions, and any input anyone may have. I will keep updating as the ride takes shape, and of course from the road one the wheel are turning.

Below are Google links for both the entire ride, and sectioned off by days.

No time to smell the roses. Much less sample all the tacos.

I avoid long rides with tight schedules. They suck. They suck even more when $hit happens. Much prefer a looser itinerary within the available time.
A good rider can go really fast...but, it takes a great rider to go really slow.
