    AdvRider comes thru----I've found a place to park my vehicle.






    I need some secure storage for my tow vehicle (small SUV) and enclosed trailer for an upcoming ride down in Baja in about 2 weeks.

    The last time we left vehicles at the Holiday Inn Express in the back parking lot one got vandalized.
    We may be in Baja for a month----probably less.

    If anybody had some ideas I'd like to know.

    Many thanks in advance.

    It's an awful place to ride in---the old Husqvarna 610 is history.
    I'll see if I can blow up my KTM down there this time.

    Definitely not the Husky----we'll be riding some pretty tough stuff.
    It's riding happy spot is easy offroad and road. We will be out of that happy spot quite a bit.

    I really haven't decided whether to ride the KTM or my WR250R----losing sleep over that one.
    But I'm prepping both.

    Mark, youre taking the 950? I just about buried my 990 in the Matomi last year. Would have been a long walk out. :lol3

    No------- I think I'm about done with big bikes---I still have it tho.

    I'm bringing my KTM450EXC and WR250R to the border.

    The KTM will be awesome and maybe make it.

    The WR will be a bit slower in places ------but will bring me home without a hiccup.

    I've been loosing sleep over this dilemma :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    A friend from my home town will be riding a WR450F---and my buddy Dingweeds will be on a WR250R.

    But it appears I've acquired a place to park my vehicle just 10 miles from the border.
    Thanks so much to Wild Willy !!!!

    I'll be down In Baja about the same time on a overloaded 950 with my girlfriend. Probably won't be bumping into you in Calamajue wash :lol3



    Can't beat that location. If you need a back up plan there is always Yuma too.

    Be cool if we did run into each other-----be so neat to see you again.

    I can't get over how I've ran into your dad twice----in the middle of nowhere------once in Mexico and once near the border of Canada on the CDR.

    So maybe we'll see you.
