    If I had to pick a place to be sick, this would be it!
    Fresh air, great view, perfect temperature, friends to harass you... The bathroom was a little far, but I'll consider it a trade off.

    What a great ride report! I've never been to Baja - would love to hook up with a great bunch of Advriders for a ride like this someday.

    Wow. Gee. A WHOLE vote. How kind and generous of you. A WHOLE vote, ... I hardly know what to say.

    (Actually I know exactly what I'd say, but I'd be sent to Jo Mamma if I said it here. So I won't. But you all know what I'm talking about, right?!)


    And my whole vote goes for Copper Canyon too!! Yippeee:clap :clap !!

    What a great story and I'm glad it all worked out - both the bike-capade and the almost-emergency at home.

    Crossing New Mexico in high winds, the itty bitty bike said, "I've had enough of this, I'm taking a break."

    Well good morning, finally caught on work so for a bit of input.


    After Coco's we took off on down the road and hit pavement some 14 miles later then on the slab for 20 or so miles where upon we came to the mobile gas station in a truck intersection and I didn't think to get any pictures so someone jump on in. ~4 gallons for 160 pesos, not too bad all things considered; well it was full service:thumbup they didn't spill a drop.

    On towards Bahia De L.A.

    Here we are, some decided to stay in a motel cause she proved to me without a doubt she had hot running water, I'd venture to say was the nicest place in town; even had internet.

    Damn biker convention she was sure making the jack with this crew.

    Stepped around the back to see how the rest of the folks live, a little depressing

    Some decided to stay on the beach....

    [​IMG]

    They had a really nice place out there (about 3 miles out of town) except for those killer guard dogs...RIGHT AL!
