This is my first ride report. In fact, this ride was my first true ADV ride. I’ve been riding/racing desert for years and recently acquired an ADV bike. I came home to find that my wife had bought a 2018 KTM 1090 Adventure R. At least that is the way I remember it. She might have a different recollection of how the bike got here, but I am sticking to my story. She then said, “You should go on a long adventure ride solo to Cabo San Lucas”. Again, that’s how I remember it. I live in Salt Lake City and began planning this ride about four months ago. My plan was to leave from my home and take two weeks to weave my way down to Cabo San Lucas. In this thread, I’ll go over my planning process, the ride, and where I stayed so you can learn from my mistakes. I packed and repacked. Eliminated gear and did what I could to shave off weight (off me and the bike). I had one reservation in place for the whole trip. This was two days in La Paz. This report is post-ride. So spoiler, I did make it to Cabo and back. A little wiser and extremely excited for another Baja adventure ride.
