My wife and I are planning a ride in late November 2008 from Florida, across US, down Baja, catch the ferry in La Paz over to the mainland and down to Batopilas then back home. We want to catch some of the Baja 1000 and a few other famous sites. I have a few questions. We will be 2 up on a Vstrom 1000 with luggage and I am a pretty accomplished dirt bike rider but How is the road up to Mikes Sky Ranch? How is the road over to Cocos Corner. Can it be done on such a heavily loaded bike 2 up or am I asking for trouble? Also like to make a few contacts of other riders that might be down there around late November. We will be camping some nights and hoteling it others.
