    < I also collected a bucket load of trash from the campsite and beach area. Why do I do this? Because my mantra in life is “make the world a better place”. I’m also OCD and trash just doesn’t seem to belong on a beach - even if it’s Mexico.>

    Atta Boy! Great earth karma. I do that as well most places I go and I try not to let it bother me how some people can be such pigs, whether American or otherwise.

    I'm also happy to see people like you get out and explore the world outside the USA, it really is a big beautiful world and a lot less scary than some people make it out to be. Whoever said Mexico is the second most dangerous country is ignorant and shouldn't be listened too. You will find that the world outside the US is whole lot less scarier than the US appears to those outside our borders.

    Seeing the world on two wheels is just a bonus. :)

    Great RR and especially pics! I loved the aerial footage from the Mavic drone as well. I just might have to get one of those...

    The Mavic is an incredible piece of camera gear for sure. You have a 4K gimbaled, FLYING camera that is portable enough to actually carry on a motorcycle adventure. The main problem with drones in general is that folks hate them. They hate the invasion of privacy and the noise. It's getting harder each day to find beautiful places to fly them. This is why Baja is so special - wide open, beautiful land.

    If you do get one, fly it responsibly, and dedicate enough time to get good at flying it before you set out on the next motorcycle adventure.

    Except that's not at all what he was talking about (murder rate) nor does the data he posted support your opinion. Facts is facts. You're safer in Mexico than the United States. We're talking about Americans vacationing in Mexico, not warring narcotraficantes.

    I'm sooooo happy to see that Coco was still doing good as of your trip! What a guy. Has nothing, is old and diabetes has taken a terrible toll yet his outlook and attitude are so positive.

    It was nice to be able to sit and talk with him a bit. Totally agree - So inspiring to see such a positive attitude coming from a guy without much.
