Always smiling, at least up until...........well, you know
From left to right, Sherry, George from Missouri, Alan and Rick.
Sherry's cross country riding partners. No wonder she always tried to stay ahead of us. Left to right, George, Barry and Bob
P.S. Not enough Tiger pics.
Looks like a great time you all had, this was one of my favorite places. I see Victoria has upgraded the parking lot with some concrete!!!!
Thanks for all the pictures and taking the time to write about this trip! I am really enjoying seeing where you all went!
Ladybug, how was your bike? I can't wait to get back down there next year!
Sherry's bike got alittle tired right before this pic.
A quick stop at Coco's corner...
We all met up at the LA bay cut off. After refueling out of the back of a pickup, we had a bite to eat and BS'ed for a while before the final leg of todays ride...
The gas station has never been open since I have been coming to Baja....
But for some reason, they continue to use the bathrooms.
You had to be there DW.
I love Baja reports!!! I had to comment on these two shots though, nice standing lenticular pictures!
I guess I do remember at least one thing from the weather portion of flight school. My ground school instructor called them "a sign for a pilot that there is complete and total nastiness up ahead, stay away!"
When I went through Denver, first and only time, a couple years ago, they had another one in the same spot! Guess it's a standing deal? Anyway, you know what I did? I entered to win the sum bitch.
Well... A tiger coulda done it but the DRZ was a hoot on the Puertecitos dirt section. I know I wouldn't have had the ballz to run 75+ on the Tigger...
We all met up at a restuarant in LA Bay for lunch.....
And they were a thirsty bunch.
Like I said, we were good for the local economy where ever we stopped.
We picked up another rider. Pat said he was Canadian, But Jorge said he was a Newfie.
From there it was off to the camp ground.
This guy landed right in front of our palapa....
I had a burrito left over from lunch, so Dad decided to feed the little guy...
Within seconds, the crowd grew bigger....
He makes friends where ever he goes.....
Actually I think that one fella was sizing your dad up, hummm, wonder what that might taste like chicken....nope more like pork
Yea the next day they were back
Al doesn't look to sure about what he's getting there. Or what he's being charged for it.
While standing there, the 2 guys sellling gasoline asked if Al was my "esposo" - my spouse/husband? I threw my head back in laughter (no offense, Al), but returned by asking if his buddy standing there was his "esposo"? I'm not sure he got the same laugh out of it that I did!!
A quiet sunrise. This was taken from my warm and cozy sleeping bag. Minimal effort required. Now if this doesn't make you want to stay in Baja... Now if I could just get someone to bring me coffee in bed...
Some more pelican pics
Sunrise from my Sleeping Bag
Heading up to the mission
Pat called these Dr Seuss Christmas Trees
This is as close as I got to the mission
A couple of miles before this I was having too much fun came around a corner carrying too
much speed and lost it in some rocks. I banged my knee pretty good, I hit the kill switch
and crawled off the road so I didn't get run over. Erica was first on the scene and I saw
her turn off the key so we didn't have to deal with a dead Battery, thanks Erica. They got
my bike stood up and I hobbled aboard. I rode up to mission sat around and rode back. Thanks
guys for making sure I made to pavement with no problems.
Yea I have some pictures riding out to the mission too; for me it was the apex of this trip and wasn't long enough some 22-25 miles out to the mission
Heading to the mission
So which way do we go..Oh yea middle of friggn nowhere and the government put up a road sign
I like this shot
Ah Ha the mission and was well worth the ride to get there, more pictures to upload
I must say Sam, the mission and the road to the mission was the highlight of this whole ride. For anyone going to LA Bay, do not miss this. My pics of this coming soon.......
It was bad enough when the wind blew the Super Bug and me over on the highway a few day's earlier and Barry having to rescue me, but this one was special. It was embarrassing dumping the Super Bug on that huge 4" sand berm just because I wanted a picture of the bike in the flowers then after all that discover the battery in my camera was dead and my backup hadn't been charged yet. We won't even discuss Ryolite At least there were no "moving violations" and I didn't receive any injuries. I hate been short. :dog
Tim and Barry, thanks for being there for me.
