    Killer pics! I've been following this thread for a while. I'm pretty sure I spotted you guys on Hwy 1 between Vizcaino and San Ignacio yesterday. I was riding an old XR350R and leading two other riders southbound. We ran into Mark and Kevin (WR 250's) in San Ignacio yesterday afternoon, but other than that we haven't seen any other riders since we crossed the border a week ago.

    Okay!! Where were we?

    Oh yeah....an actual ride report....:lol3

    Fetid cloths in and clogging the washing machine...check

    Fetid body washed/scraped clean....check

    Fetid Boots left in the garage to kill any errant insects...check

    Big pad for sore ass on chair...check

    Aerosmith playing...check

    Lagunitas IPA in chilled glass....check

    Let's go!!!

    (DISCLAIMER: If you are looking for amazing stunts/riding, off-road prowess, studly deeds, manly bleeding/repairs/rescue, etc., this RR ain't for you. We are fuck off's.... lazy/sloppy doofs that wander around and accomplish nothing. We are the anti-matter of Adventure....we are just fucking around having a good time. No big accomplishments except that We Had Fun. ...enjoy.....)


    Currently downloading about 600 photos (with Jay's (aka Heb) in the pipe).......as I was not able to upload while down in Baja....:bluduh

    So, when we last left our heros they were futzing around waiting for nasty weather to clear outta Californ-i-a/Baja North......

    We decided (it being a fake Adventure and all) to wait out the shit weather, so we moved our departure forward a few days....

    ....which gave more time for more prep, speculation, map studying, drinking and such....:freaky



    Added a few important supplies....:evil

    Ceegars....of course!

    [​IMG]


    Butt wipes...(of course!)

    [​IMG]


    Tide...Get's the dirt (an poo) OUT!!!

    [​IMG]

    Motion Pro Bead Breakers!! Tried these on one of Jay's tires that had been on since Jeebus was a corporal...worked a charm! DaFoole recommended!!!

    [​IMG]

    AND, most importantly...Medical Bracelets!!!

    Just wanted say I enjoy your reporting style and photos. It is different in a good way compared to other ride reports.

    Might have something to do with all the food and brews in the pictures above though, :1drink

    So after a busy night we slowly rolled out of bed as dawn popped in waaay to early....

    [​IMG]

    We had, um, indulged a bit the night before.....

    [​IMG]

    The leavings of the previous nights work out....


    [​IMG]

    Moving kinda slow....:lol3

    Packed up our chit...



    [​IMG]



    ...and rolled on to SoCal for the next day's border crossing....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ...up to Tehachapi pass....

    [​IMG]

    and on....

    [​IMG]

    ...and on...

    [​IMG]

    At a rest stop Jay got excited at what he hoped was an advertisement for a possible donkey show....

    [​IMG]

    Alas, it was but an "info poster" telling us of their habits...which are apparently pretty boring....:lol3





    Finally we decided to speed things up....we hoped. Hopped on the Eastern Fwy system of SoCal...and lucked out!!

    Traffic hauled ass at about 80mph...

    Schweet!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    ...and ended up in El Cajon at a Best Western...packed with tweakers....:huh

    Pulled all our shit off the bikes and Jay went out to rustle up some dinner...a deep dish pizza we ordered that took forever.....

    [​IMG]

    What it lacked in taste it made up for in sheer volume....:eek1

    [​IMG]

    ....off to bed and having some anticipation for tomorrows border crossing....

    Yep, finally these dumb shits are going to actually get into Mexico!!!
