Hey guys. Leaving LA for 3-5 days in late Dec or early Jan and looking for suggestions! Settled on north Baja on the V-Strom 1000, per the suggestions so far ITT. The bike: 2005 V-Strom 1000 with new Metzeler Tourance tires, big aluminum boxes, skid plate and engine guards. I know the Strom isn't really a true adventure bike. Camping is probably the goal. (Earlier more lengthy post with more options deleted.) 2) Baja. Not sure where to go that doesn't require a true dual sport or involve hours of straight line droning on a highway. Is there a Butler for Baja? I can search this I guess. I'd kind of like to take the Strom down whatever side of the Baja peninsula is best, ending in La Paz or Cabo (edited: not going that far south). Beach camping would be cool (if safe). I'd like to maybe do some dirt roads, but I'm not an experienced off-roader and am going solo. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
