    I started my ride in Cabo San Lucas. Seven days, 1025 miles with an extra day off the bike in Loreto. The first pic doesn't show my track from Cabo and East cape up past Los Barriles. I was to lazy to post each pic, so here is the link to my pictures.

    Nice ride and pics. Do you just leave your bike in Cabo?

    Yes, I leave the XR in Cobo. I chose the XR because it may sit idle for seven or eight months at a time and is stone reliable.

    Hey Baja Ho,

    Thanks for posting the link ... and all the beautiful pics ... I always run out of time/steam around Loreto/Muleje ... will have to make an effort to get the rest of the way down, someday ..

    See you around the campfire,

    I see the mission San Javier, beautiful place. Looks like Scorpion Bay also with other side roads that I didn't get to cover on my recent visit down there....

    Looking forward to heading down there again, but the ride to the MEX border from Portland is an ass killer! :cry

    If your computer display is small you may have to scroll down to view the text for each picture.

    When I crosed over to the Pacific side from Loreto I was about eighty miles south of Scorpion Bay, it's a cool place but I wanted to consentrate my ride below there. :D

    Thanks for following along. I might be doing the same or similar trip next year but in reverse. If you still have that 650R, haul that baby down here and well go for a ride. Oh Ciudad Constitucion is where the hotel is.
