Background: We'll I must say I seem to always ride alone, not always by choice, but I seem to never have plans laid out far enough in the future to gain a riding buddy for a adventure so it leaves me alone to make my own ways through my trips. In the end it seems that it always turns out to be more fun and CRAZY than an adventure I might have if I had buddy(s) along with me on the trip, all my big adventures so far have been solo except a brother ride to Key West. Since that said brother does not have the time to ride with me on these adventrures I have commandeered his ride from what I normally ride since it is in a teardown phase for my super adventures yet to acheive fruition. This bike that I refer to as my Mule is the silver beasts of burden '04GSA which I believe has saved my life many times over. The Adventure Begins: Unlike previous trips this one was supposed to be with other adventures from AR, OK, TX, and other well known states. As it would have it Tulsa World publishes one small article about increasing violent attacks in Baja that strikes fear in the heart of men and most everyone back out with in weeks of departure. You can never critize someone for their choice, to each his own. There again I am without, solo bound for lands to the south. Orginally the plan was Mexicali cross in and out top to bottom in a week or something, which I would take along since I was a mute virgin in moto travel in Mexico only tourist air travel to Cozy and Cabo precedes this trip. My plan, after countless hours of pouring over trip reports and numerous PMs to some of the inmates here over the first weeks of jan, I decided to head south by southwest across the deep canyons and across the sea to the tip and back north by northeast to home. I made my other el grande solo adventure on said silver mule at the end of August and through September 2007 to the top of the rideable non-iceroad world of North America and have wanted to post it as my first RR but had trouble keeping up with some of my poor photos from my trip and since this trip is the latest and freshest and shortest I will attempt it first. I got a smugmug account setup with same advride handle today and loading my digitized disposable 35mm camera pics up as we speak. I will attempt to load these as I go. I have to figure how to adjust the size of the photo so it will not exceed size limits here. PS-My spelling sucks and I spell phoenitically!
