    You should go........you'll never regret it. I just wished I went sooner and daydream now about going back again.

    Beautiful pictures. How do you get the sky to explode like that. The way you compose the pictures is outstanding. Thanks for taking the time to post them up.

    Hi Joel,

    I'm far from being a pro but I do like taking pictures and just bought a few new lens so hopefully better pictures in the future. This Dec I'll be riding Baja again plus hopefully Belize and maybe Panama? How did the Death Valley ride go? We have a ton of snow in the mtns so it will be a while before I'm able to get up there.

    Cheers..........:D

    I wanted to get on that Ferry but just didn't have enough time. This fall I'll be on it though.

    Great Report. I like the pic of the ferry with the fish jumping out of the water. That looks like a nice hotel where you have the bike parked.

    That was acually that was a Pelican catching a fish, I was waiting for him to dive bomb. The Hotel was great it had 3 levels in the room right accross from La Paz bay and I stayed there twice.

    Great pictures and video.
    I so can't wait to put my KLR to use like you.
    If I lived on the west coast, I'd take that trip to Baja too.
    Do you speak Spanish?
    That one cook was kinda cute eh? LOL

    I'm really happy with my KLR because it has never let me down. In Baja when your riding solo in middle of no where you start thinking to yourself "please, please my beautiful motorcycle don't break down now" or "just get me out of here and I'll change your oil every 1000 miles" :D Take your KLR to Mexico and it will get you there and back np.

    About a month before I left on my trip I bought Rosetta Stone Spanish, well I have to say the study sessions didn't go as planned........so no my Spanish is very bad......but I'm good with sign language :scratch I have 8 months to study now so I should be better for my next trip I hope.

    That cook made the biggest Burrito I ever had and I have a few extra pounds on my waist to prove it. I went there everyday while in Cabo.
