    Good Day Gents,

    A friend and I are in the initial phases of planning a trip to Baja in April. I've been reading a bunch of threads here but they tend to be big bike centric. This time we decided to take the dirt bikes.

    The current high level plan looks like this:
    • ride the bikes across the boarder at Tecate
    • spend 7 days total time in Mexico. We have decent range (for dirt bikes)
    • we're intermediate+ riders and move relatively quickly
    • Unsupported, need to get fuel in the desert
    • Traveling light, staying at hotels
    • Considering trying to ride south for 6 days and then get towed north to the border - does anyone know of such a service
    • 2 stroke dirt bikes. Any comments on oil availability?
    I'd love to hear suggestions on areas that would be fun riding and nice places to stay, preferably on the beach as much as possible.

    Thanks in advance,

    Wes

    Following. A friend and I are also trying to do a trip around the same time. Are you guys going to be doing mostly road? Single track?
    We have kind of the same plan with packing minimally and staying in hotels. Maybe we can share some ideas or potentially meet up.

    cheers

    Hey Rob,

    As much off road/single track as possible. We're all riding the same bike (KTM 300 XCW's) so that will make the spares list a lot easier to divy up.

    Cheers,

    Wes
