Jake´s Place comes equipped with an old BMW r75\6 with a sidecar. here´s a photo of Lotsofsky next to it. we had been invited to have dinner with a very nice family from Boise (Terry Eve and their son Josh). They served a delicious meal of ceviche that was caught that day in the bay in front of their cabana.
Mulege has a thriving gringo population. Here´s a photo of Lotsofsky and me having huevos at the Pelican Reef, owned by a sportbiking gringo Scott. We rode the bikes there and parked right in front.
The ride from El Rosario de Arriba to Mulege is a 250 mile stretch of cactus strewn desert and twisty mountain passes that crosses the peninsula from the Pacific to the bright, aqua blue waters of the Sea of Cortez. There is no gas station along this stretch so most motorcycles can´t cross it without bringing back-up gasoline or stopping at this little outpost in the middle of nowhere where an old entreprenuer sets up shop with a pick-up full of gas. 2 gallons cost 15bucks, but it was worth the experience. He siphons gas into his mouth and spits it out like a pro.
