    How was the snow in Utah?

    I need a bit better suspension on the front. I keep trying to ride the GSA like the 530.

    Here's a few more pics from the weekend in Baja with @tbarstow

    Like Tim mentioned, Hwy 5 is in rough shape...for a highway. I kinda like it though. Adds a bit of variety. A couple pics of the hwy:

    Had a very noisy evening/early morning making sleeping a bit rough at Pete's camp. Not sure why certain people feel the need to rev engines and blast around camp into the wee hours of the morning :stfu :boid Note to self: Don't stay there on a holiday weekend prior to a big race. Good food and Cervezas though!

    It was a nice stop after making our way through all the sand on the south end of the Laguna Salada. Managed to get off the course before getting run over by a trophy truck. 1000hp blasting across the desert never gets old!

    One of my favorite parts of the trip was getting to finally meet Coco. I've read about him and wanted to meet him since my early issues of Four Wheeler Magazine. What a legend and a nice guy to boot!

    Have a great ride! Very jealous that I will miss this one (again). But sometime soon I'll join you for another ride...

    Is this a camping thing? I've never been to baja on 2 wheels and this sounds great if you're accepting straglers.

    Cal's has designated space for tents if you're interested in camping ... I like falling into a bed after too many beers by the fire.

    Come join us Stu

    My tires are past the halfway point, I’m most likely going to ride from south oc and back and just use them up. Anyone who wants to ride along let me know
