Baja in late December

Looking for riding partners for a 3-4 week trip starting from San Diego area in late December. Heading to the bottom of Baja, catching the ferry to the mainland and possibly Copper Canyon. I'm an intermediate rider and did Baja last year on XR650R, now I have a KTM 950 SE so I can carry camping gear. Planning to camp/hotel and open to options. Leaving from Vancouver and have room for another bike in the truck and I can haul a trailer. Thanks.

Maybe see you

I'll be leaving San Buenoventura, california in a couple of days maybe see you down there.

I to am Interested in the Baja and prices of accommadations and food, etc.... I'm trying to be economical and was wondering how much it would cost in total to travel the baja at a moderate pace(two weeks max) and than cross over to the mainland mexico by ferry with my Motorcycle.

If someone, including the OP could give me a price range for such an adventure it would be appeciated. Again i want to do it as economically as possible since i'm just at the beginning of my trip south.

Any info would be good

Wrong Way, Troy
