    I just had to bail on a trip because of work. This thread is a perfect way to keep reminding me that I have to get back down there.

    I'm up for this, when is Pres weekend? I don't really need a guide, have been to Baja about 100 times (mostly surfing) in the last 50 years, but it would be fun to go with a small group

    Back in the day I rode my beat up vespa down to baja.
    I had some camping gear and pretty much zero clue.

    Amazing trip and you see a lot more putting along at 35 mph.
    After getting back, I was hooked and needed to find a faster more suitable bike.
    That's how I found advrider.com and the benefits of BMW whale foreskins. . .

    yep- great place and long history of italian eats in the SD area. We leave our trucks at a pay lot on the right side of the road just before the crossing- and across from the min-mart . Have not had any issues.

    Used to stage from Rancho Veronica - but had a few issues there and its so much easier coming home. Just to ride to the front of the line.

    Sunday looks to be practice day for Baja 1K pit service. My email message said "will be practicing fuel dumps, tire changes, air filter changes and truck load/unload."

    I'm guessing that I'll get tasked with a lot of the lifting tasks :freaky
