    Well Baja would be complete with you along to document while railing your trials bike XR650 Chris.

    As BelleRinger Ray says, QTL. Quality Time Left. We have less sand in the hour glass top as in the bottom. Do it my brother.

    I'm bumping this epic ride report for you Baja fans and dreamers alike. Very likely heading back to the peninsula in @ 1 month with a few friends, the original riders of Team Magoo. Unfortunately, this trip is to repeat the beach visit in San Francisquito to spread ashes again. With a very heavy heart, our noble team captain Chris (Magoo) Corcorcan passed away last year. Chris died in his sleep at home. I am soon to receive some of Magoo's ashes to scatter into the Sea of Cortez, to repeat the ceremony we had in 2013 for his friend David Garrett. I know that Chris will be there with us, and his friend David will be there to meet him in the spirit of Baja, ashes of a great man mixing into the azure blue water. His family has no idea the love Chris had for Baja, his influence, our team banker and Spanish interpreter. Damnit, Chris was a good dude... :beer

    I'm blessed that Chris invited me to join Team Magoo. He set the hook and my love affair with this exotic land of Mexico is now a part of me. RIP Magoo, you are missed and we all thank you for your brotherhood.

    If we manage to make another trip next month, you can bet your moto boots there will be another ride report. :deal

    "I'm just glad to be here, proud to be a part of the team and willing to contribute in any way I can".

    Magoo rode in Baja with deep sand and gnarly single track and never questioned a bit of it. He never turned his back on his fellow riders. I rode and drank Cerveza with him...I got no complaints! RIP Brother!
