Brit seeks Baja Route comments?/ Ride buddies?/ Beer anyone?
Sorry for what might seem obvious to you. Over this Christmas/New Year I’m flying from England to LA, borrowing a DRZ400 with minimal luggage and heading south to Baja. I have about 2 weeks for Baja.
I think a top to tip and back would be good. Maybe something like 10/11 days going south on dirt/sand and 3/4 days north again on pavement.
I’ve spotted a “2007 Baja1000 race log” at Gps Track log route exchange Forum :: View topic - Baja 1000 Race log

There are however so many tracks/routes made available. It is a bit like information overload for somebody who has never been to Baja. Do you any recommendations/suggestions regarding other tracks/routes?

Are you planning something similar? I aim to be crossing the US/Baja border on 21December . Do you want to ride together for a bit of the way? I want to ride as much dirt as possible. Sleeping in cheaper hotels or camping.
I’ll be travelling light on a DRZ like I said. The bike has a 4 gal tank so my fuel range is maybe 200 miles. I’ve had a lot of dirt/mud experience (the advantage of living in “God’s Own Country”: Yorkshire) and also sampled the joys of sand in the Moroccan Sahara.
FWIW, my website is Home The Bright Stuff dot Com
The bike is yellow (Now there's a surprise!). Helmet is red/white/black Arai TourX and I speak English with a funny accent (that is English English
). If you see/hear me, let’s drink a
