So what the heck is Baja ride apparel? Still not getting it?
How about matching jackets, pants, helmets, gloves, boots, shirts, underwear ... well maybe not the underwear but all in yellow with little ladybugs flying around cacti
That way, everyone riding with KR in Baja won't get lost..... well, lets not go there either
I think I'll pass on the matching apparal that Moto-Treks came up with. :huh
Christmas arrived early at my house and Santa wasn't wearing red.
Nice picture. The boat is a nice touch.
Needs some music.

Doug from California will be firing one up shortly.
Are you saying I should keep my day job?
I could spend an hour or two with that DV map
Looks like you were on the nice list after all.
Won't ask what Santa was wearing.
That may be on a "need to know" basis
I'll be picking up Benchmark maps for California and Oregon for a trip next June. Unfortunately, it will be in the cage, but should still be a good time. First a wedding in San Jose, then B&Bs or camping through Yosemite, Mt. Shasta, Marin County (wine for SWMBO), Crater Lake, and some coastal driving thrown in for good measure. Forgot the red woods too. Do this with the wifey pooh, then she'll let me go out and play on the bike.
Personally, I find the Butler maps superior when on the bike.
Be sure to post the link here so we can check it out. I take it your dad, brother and you were all on the ride?
And who's flat was that? I bet it belonged to a Gunn, they always do.
Yes, you most certainly should keep your day job. You haven't bought your DV map yet? When I get done with my highlighters my map is going to be so pretty.
Of course I was on the nice list, I'm always nice, just sometimes nicer than others.
That sounds like a fun road trip but it would be one heck of a lot more fun on a motorcycle.
Superior to the Benchmark? I haven't studied the butler maps much but Benchmark seems to have more detail compared to the ones I have looked at. The downside of Benchmark is they are a bit cumbersome to carry. I found the perfect solution for mine, I keep it in the overlarge tool tube I have on the bike. It keeps the benchmark dry and clean plus it's easy to get to. The nice thing about Butler is they are tougher than regular state maps and do have some useful detail on them.
Yep...for 95% of the riding most will end up doing when visiting a state. Butler is spot-on IMHO for finding the best overall paved routes. Off road is another story...Benchmark is the way to go if you want to find that obscure logging road you've heard about but can't find on a regular map.
Little more detail of a highlighted route:
Personally, I'd toss the board and keep the bike as a round the towner.
That was our last morning in Baja. Was taken at the campground in San Felipe we stayed at in 08. I set my camera on the block wall by the beach and zoomed in, and waited for the boat to move into the picture. I was suprised how well it turned out.
Yes...and let me see... yes..
I just got some unedited footage loaded on YouTube of a ride that Kootenai Rider and I went on back in September. I had dreams of rocks for weeks! Shaky footage, but you get the idea....

That was an impressive ride. I remember back in my younger days doing rides like that. What were you guys riding and did you lower the gearing?
I'm pretty sure KR's KTM 250XC-W had stock gearing, but was set up for that kind of stuff out of the box more than my 12 year-old XR that wasn't geared down nearly enough, but has the tractor-like torque to fudge it a little. Hopefully, Santa will be bringing me a bigger rear sprocket!
After watching that all I have to say is Boys, you got balls bigger than your brains! Was that your mama that came up and smacked you upside the head at the end of the video?
And I've been told I have an abnormally large brain!
Theres probably 4' or more of snow on that trail now...I want to do that Murray ride next year for sure...that looks like heaven to me!
