I know it will be a few years before I'll be able to make it down there, but I've wanted to make a run into Baja, down the Pacific coast, and into Belize and Guatemala for a long time. Your quote above is why I want to do it. There is so much more to motorcycle riding than just covering the miles. There are things to do, people to meet, the list goes on. Ged, I enjoyed this RR more than any other I've read in quite some time. Your words really match the pictures and it is easy to tell that you have a gift for telling a good story. My life right now is so mundane that I found myself envying a man with a broke ankle. :huh Granted that man was recuperating at a B&B on the Pacific Coast and drinking tequila, but he still had a broke ankle.
