    My brother and I are heading down to Ensenada for contingency and then to our Mag7 pit location near Colonet for the race. I started in New York a few weeks ago on my DR650, met brother in Savannah, GA on his NX650 and we've been heading West since then. If you see us, give a shout... always good to meet other inmates.

    Q: Riding from LA to Ensenada... approximate travel time with the border crossing?

    Absolutely EPIC! Well played boys. Depending on where you are starting from in LA, plan on at least 2 hours to the TJ border. From TJ to Ensenada is another 1.5 hours.

    There are lots of places to ride on the beach where you are heading. Guessing that's something boys from NY and GA don't get to do very often.

    Have fun and ride safe.

    that's one long ride on thumpers, done before by many, but by my standard, you guys rock.

    tijuana crossing is closet to ensenada @ 1 1/2 ride. sun goes up early this time, leave as early if you can.

    always a blast riding in baja. you guys enjoy.

    rich, wish i could join you. the last 2 trips down there i spent a good chunk of my vacation time. need to save more for next year, and still that won't be enough.

    Is this the whale watching trip you and Larry talked about? Oh wait you guys are Loco, Mexico/Baja is way dangerous and scary!





    But the tacos sure are worth the risk! Joel can I have the HP2 and the XRE400 when they take you hostage?

    Rich, have a great ride ... hope to see some pics when you get back.


    Yo Shawn, didn't know you were doing a Baja run. Keep an eye on your emails for an end of the year trip.
