So I plan on heading south from Victoria BC Mid/end of October towards the bottom of the baja. Money, first aid stuff, tent(ing stuff), Patch kit and tire change tools, A good condition working motorbike, proper gear are all of the things that I am knowing that i will need to bring down with me. But what above and beyond are things that should be brought? I will be riding an '04 950 Adv. Planning on the Oregon coast then a stop with fam in Cali and continue down. GPS, Cell phone will be brought but how about additional electronics like sat phone, Second GPS like a Garmin Zumo 220 or 660, Spot. Any tire recommendations? Leaning towards the Heidenau or Mefo. Extra Fuel Jerry can or something of the sort? So as far as gear goes i think that is all. But what about places to stop or avoid? Any real key stops of interest? Border or insurance advice? Places to spend more than a night? Anything would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the time.
