    Anyone interested in joining me?

    I have ridden a lot in Europe, but never Mexico.

    I will be riding a KTM 950 Adventure and starting from the Bay Area.

    I am looking at a 2-3 week trip, with a mixture of camping and hotels ...

    Possibly! I'm heading down to TX from Maine late December, planning on 8 weeks in Baja, Mexico and Central America! Riding an 1150GS.

    I'm planning a Baja trip beginning on or around January 4th for at least a couple weeks. Leaving from San Diego area. No real itinerary as of yet. Riding a KTM 500 EXC. Feel free to reach out, maybe we could meet up for a stretch.

    Cheers!

    Hey man, do you have any interest heading down for the Baja 1000 at the end of November. I will be riding out of San Diego too on a CRF450L

    I'm planning on heading that way this winter and can leave Charlotte, NC as early as the 1st week in December. My original plan is to take my motovan with my KTM 350 or ride my 2013 GS WC the whole way. Leaning toward the van but can pack either bike depending on who I will ride with. Open time frame. 1st time to Mexico

    My dates have shifted a bit. I'm looking to spend a week near La Paz with some friends but also hoping to catch up with my wife and some friends in Loreto the weekend of Feb 15-16. I could theoretically meet up with the wife on the way down or the way back up depending on how things shake out. What are other peoples dates looking like?

    Thanks, hadn't considered that. I was hoping to be back stateside before the 21st as it is though.
