Thanks to Lica on the Oso Loco crew we knew we had to goto the newer border crossing on the east side of Mexicali to get KK'S tvip cancled .The banjercito is right at the border there-I think on the left side.I crossed and waited for KK to meet me on the US side.It was about 3 pm.If you do this just cut into the sentri lane on the left.I got stuck in the wait and a guy in a chevy tahoe let me cut across.Xr650rs overheat fast. Back at my van-time for a beer.

KustomizingKid said he needed more sand.I wasnt up for it but since he was in California from Minnesota I knew I could help him out-with a trip to Glamis dunes on the way home.

My bike back at home.For tires I ran a Dunlop mx71 front size 90/100-21.Its fat and wide and works good in sand.For the rear I ran Shinko 244 5.10x18.I didnt feel compromised by dirt or pavement.I had to okie rig a new tail light in Cabo.

Great report and good pictures, headed all the way to Cabo myself in about 2 weeks.

Looks like the rear tire is done. What was the total mileage?

Twisted Hog-I dont know the total mileage.My gps went down and I have 1 of those trailtech vapor speedos that I dont think is working correctly.At least 2200.I am going to run a mild dual sport event this weekend and I am running those tires another 200 miles.I would run that combo again.I was running 20 psi both ends all the time..The front seemed a little harsh and the back needed a more spring rate.

I got a Mita Dakar 09 for the rear and a TKC80 for the front. When I picked up the Mita the fellow who also has done Baja recomended running higher pressures to avoid pinch flats. Said running higher pressure was good for kicking out the rocks and helped from bending your rim when you hit a pot hole or void in the roadway.

Not sure what the real time of your ride when you passed the 2 DR's. Could it have been Beckstastic and Andrea?

Hamburgler suite. I've been there.

Next time I need to get farther south. We made it to Bahia Acension this time.
