hey guys, I 've been to mex before. the key to survive is to mingle with the locals...
Why is the crazy looking gringo hanging out with the suave bandito?
Thanks for sharing, your report is hilarious and great sense of humor,
Happy New Year and enjoy your trip in Baja
Love to ride with you guys sometime
I am not sure if I can keep up with those Orange Beast :huh
Damn it, we are back in San Diego!
Let me start off by saying that we LOVE Mexico.
Two day drive to Loreto. Here are a few pics that I thought represented our little journey.
Ran out of day light just before Guerrero Negro. Tricky drive to San Ignacio in the dark. Road was a little narrow, with no shoulder - just a rocky ditch.
Very relieved to get to 'San Ignacio Springs Bed and Breakfast'. Rushed into town for a few late night tacos and watch the locals skate-boarding in the town square.
Had a great night's sleep. My first time in a yurt!
Terry and Mike are the wonderful Canadians that run the B&B. They are moto friendly too.
Pretty cool cactuses! <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
There seems to be a bunch of old looking buildings dotted about Baja. Apparently something to do with a couple of catholic europeans looking for fresh....,uhm, converts.
Being a complete tree-nerd, I found the giant Ficus nitida to be more interesting than the rickety relic.
Did a lot more driving. Stopped in Mulege for a little break. This wonderful establishment was at the very end of the road.
We came very close to taking this little puppy home with us.
We had a long discussion on whether dogs that seem to be eating well have a better time living free on a beach, compared to a dog at home in the States, behind a fence, that only gets to see its owners briefly before and after work. We left the little dog to its little canine adventure life.
For the three of you that might be thinking that we just drive around with flash-looking bikes in our pickup truck, be patient. Lots of riding coming.
Hey, I resemble that comment, make it 4 looking in!. Going to be in B.S. in 2 weeks, for some adventure. Steve
I'm having strange new feelings like I've never had before and I don't know why
or which one of you is effecting me this way.
For you that is "very" nobby.
You should see it now. It is still on, and has quite a few more miles since that pic. Have to raid the local used tire pile and fish out a newer one.
Love is in the air...
OK, that's enough of that nonsense. You 2 are the most heterosexual macho guys that I know. This not the right place for letting out any deep dark secrets. You can PM each other about any repressed feelings, and that way we can all still respect you.
Oh yeah, back to riding dirt bikes in Baja!
First little warm up ride out of Loreto.
Please note the new-larger-upgraded fuel cells that I picked up for this trip.
Pretty cool scenery.
San Javier mission.
This is a picture for those of you who prefer to spend your vacation dollars on the "safe" side of the border. See the dangerous drug cartel butterfly about to attack this poor defenseless little girl.
Apparently the last hurricane made some of the bridges a bit more fun for us adventure types.
This next picture shows the great sign-language system that Rollergirl and I have developed for riding. This is the sign for "I have almost had enough for today, Honey!"
I wasn't sure what the problem was, the road ahead was just starting to look good.
"OK baby, we can race back to Loreto!"
With all the tourists here for the Christmas holidays, it was hard to find a place, amongst the crowds, to sit down and eat a few post-ride tacos.
Heading back to the little house we were staying at.
"Come on my love, I think it might go through!"
"I will find you some nicer, more enjoyable stuff, my wonderful wife!"
"Yes baby, I was thinking of you when I said 'more enjoyable'."
