    Glad I found this thread. Keep it coming. I have been invited to ride with a seasoned group of baja off roaders from Ensenada to Cabo for five days this spring. We are riding off road MX bikes and no pavement is included. I have driven to Cabo on a 3 week surf trip but I have never explored down there on a bike. I am selling my CRF 450R for something more suited for this type of riding. These pics are getting me pumped!

    Worst of: Head bearing were loose and went into a low speed wobble dodging a pink elephant after drinking too many Negro Modelos leaving Santa Rosalina (SP?). Picked Cactus spines out of my ass for weeks! :cry

    Ummmmmm . . . sorry about that, but you clearly know WHY it happened. Don't mean to sound like Mommy, but there is no excuse for drinking and riding, especially in Mexico. It's dangerous enough, and from an extremely selfish perspective, I don't want someone else's foolish mistake to impact on the local's perception of ME.

    If your leaving San Juanico and going to La Purisima and your on an XRR or smaller you may like the 18 miles of Beach riding available South of town . When your at the 18 mile point , look for the trail leading up the bluff (on left) that goes about 6-7 miles East to an intersection (turn right) with the regular route to La Purisima . The bigger (heavy)(or loaded) bikes can enjoy 18-20 miles of Great Beach Riding and exploring (dead fin whale at the 17 mile point and a few washed up sea lions in 06')and those (big bikes) should return to San Juanico for the Palapas and Beer . p.s. Do some hillclimbing competition with your buds up the SandBluffs (left) along the way . :1drink

    How funny, I just stumbled through this thread and saw the map shot at San Francisquito with Gas Pipes sharpie and my Bartz/ Curtis below. We arrived about two week after Genero died, kinda glum. Heading down the 15th of May, thought I might swing by if it isn't too hot. Haven't been back in a year, anyone know whats up? Genero's wife said they wanted to sell but they were asking way too much. Taking my HP2 this time instead of the 1200 GS, ought to be a little more relaxing in the sand............

    There's a nice couple running the place now. Definitely worth stopping by. They cook the meals and sell beer/sodas. The palapas are probably just like you remember.

    If you make it there, let us all know how the place is!
    Was there 2 years ago, didn't get in there last year.
    Would like to go again if it's still up and running.

    Thanks Jonz. I'll probably stop in - hoping Coco is home too, but that might be overly optimistic. I'll post any news bits about out of the way favorites. Crossing at Tecate next Wed. Saludos

    Place is scheduled to sell to a man from Mexico City this Sept. Word is he will fix it up some and run it until it is time to build something bigger - that could be 5 years or never. Too much for Genero's wife to run. Coco is still not home - in GN I presume. Had a great dinner and spent the night in my favorite Palapa.
