I just watched the video of the So. section of the CaBDR. I'm a little dissapointed in the route, they made it the hardest of all BDR's, all desert, ignoring our beautiful mountains. The route was ridden by a bunch of experts, Baja racing and Dakar riders, not your average rider, they made it through, with 2 out with injures, and one guy with a monsterous GS got hurt and had to have an expert ride his bike through that section. Not what I was expecting as a 70 YO solo rider it would be tough to do this route, too bad as we have so many potential roads in this huge state.
