    Laguna Diablo is an amazing playground. FYYFF was a little nervous of the high speed runs I was taking on his 990. I gave him his bike back and he rode off and pulled this ....

    Weird thing about Ersin's bike, the seat had a little red stain when I got on it. Then remembered this trip popped his Baja cherry :pope

    Horsepower Ranch is turning into one of my favorite stops in Baja. Rodrigo is a great host and makes what might be the best margarita ever. Here is our crew from the after Christmas trip with a few empty margarita cups

    Oh yeah, Rodrigo grills up some good grub too :freaky

    Great idea for a thread! :clap



    A group of us, only a few on advrider, are headed south on March 22nd for 10 days in Baja. We're doing a clockwise loop down to Mike's & gulf side. Then Bill Nichols singletrack in the Bay of L.A & Catavina areas. The youtube videos make me drool;

    Then up the Pacific side to Coyote Cal's & back to Tecate. :ricky


    That is a NICE ride report & trip!

    I wish I could leave TOMORROW!!!:clap

    I'm looking to ride down to Cabo - but given my time limitations, I only really have time to do a one-way. I don't want to rush the journey and miss the sights or worse, crash badly because I was in a hurry.

    What I would like to do is ride from San Diego, down to Cabo, then have my bike (Husaberg FE570) shipped back the the SF Bay Area, and I'll fly back to San Diego and pick up my truck and drive that back home.

    Has anyone else done this? Any shipping recommendations?

    Hmmm, I think there could be a long line of volunteers to ride a Husa 570 from Cabo to SD.

    I'm leading a No.Cal ride (Lost Coast & Trinity Alps) that weekend in May. So.Cal guys do seem to enjoy the heat more than No.Cal guys. :hmmmmm

    I guess those posts about stevodadevo (Dana Neisler) got moved down to inmates...
    (thread link here)

    Which is too bad for anyone interested in visiting his memorial.
    I'm going to quote kkug to keep some info here, in this thread, if you guys don't mind:





    I didn't get the information in time to give it to BigWan for his ride, which is a bummer.
    Hope others go visit and take photos for Sondra.


    Anyway, BigWan's ride report is live now. The guys made it to Kurt Caselli's memorial.
    They also did some stuff that big bikes don't normally do - Window Rock, Green Door Trail, etc...
    Lots of baja pics and video coming up...
