    Dream Ride:
    Every day in Baja.
    Currently residing in the High Rockies of Colorado, I recently got back in to the world of dirt biking after a long hiatus. I had spent some of my young adult life on a 99' DR650, touring the back roads of West by God Virginia, and Southeast Ohio.

    After moving to Colorado I had spent very little time riding my dual sport, as my father was the real driving factor for my riding time.

    A few winters into my life in Colorado, I had a chance to go to Baja as a buddy was beginning a tour group, guiding trips into Mexico. I spent an entire Winter in Phoenix riding, working, and planning anything motorcycle related, especially in Baja. I became the IT guy, and launched a website, pieced together videos, sent out e-mail blasts, and programmed/organized a majority of the GPS routes within the company Epic Ride Rentals. Unfortunately, after a short lived operation, the funds were pulled, and I returned to Colorado.

    In the previous three years, I have been progressing in the enduro style of Dirt Biking, with a very adventurous crew. We run trips into Wyoming, Colorado, and Baja every year, and look to ride as much difficult terrain as possible. Within our crew, the more challenging the riding, the more rewarding the outcome, and we mean this to its fullest extent.

    Over the last few years, a couple of local guys and I have organized trips to Baja so that we can take some of our closest riding buddies on the experience that we so love. After multiple trips on previously ridden routes throughout the last few years, we begin our endeavors into programming our 2016 trip into Baja Norte.

    This years adventure will include some classics, such as Chicken Rock (window rock), the 22 day trail, Camper Shell, and more, but will also include a little exploration as we are looking to link up some new routes, which we have heard may, or may not, be possible.

    Our mission this year is to successfully link new towns together, doing it via dirt bike, whether it's roping them down a cliff, or riding them through two-track roads. We're always looking to progress our skills, and improve our riding environments, so as we look to push the route finding possibilities, we aim to not sleep in the desert on a regular basis, and potential discover some new routes that we will use on future trips.
