I thought I would post our resent trip because of the past posts I read on here helped me plan what to do for this one. Always good giving back to the community if this helps anyone. First time posting so like everyone else I apologize for typos and what ever else! haha So for starters, Myself and Claude Both ride KTM's. He's on a new 1290R and I have my faithful 2010 990R. We have been been planning this trip for about year but like most times you drink beer and plan things don't usually work out, but this one did. As usual we had some other friend that wanted to go but the recent level of security I believe changed their minds. Details before the trip..... Truck and Trailer to Calexico Motel 6 and leave in the parking lot Baja Insurance for the bike ($275) 2 weeks Baja Topo map for the Garmin National geographic map set (Amazon for $20) My Spot Claude purchased a Garmin en-reach last minute as his spot packed it in New meats hooks for the bike (Mine - E-12 and 606 front) (Claude's was TKC 80's front and rear) General tuning for the bike Some new gear - New MSR hubba hubba tent. My hubba 9 year old single person tent has been great but more space is nice - New klymit sleeping pad. Bought it and it leaked out of the valve. Simple fix on google university - And a cheap PTS sensor off Amazon. Try it over the length of the trip to see if it lasts Idea was to leave Vancouver 3am Saturday March 24th with the bikes loaded in the trailer ready to go. I thought we were going to make Calexico sometime to use the Motel 6 for the first night and start fresh the following day.
