Anyone gonna be down there sat/sun? We will be riding to ojos from the border, ojos to rm100/valle T, then heading back towards the pacific either on course then slabbing to san quintin unless the tide is low enough to ride the beach. Then back up to the coast to the course to ojos and home.

I am planning to run from RM 162 to valle T (RM270ish) on saturday, hopefully twice. Then sunday run part of it again and then do valley T to san vicente and then head home. not sure if my chase truck will meet me in san vicente or up closer to ensenada.

We will be there from Friday night through Monday morning. We are staying in Ensanada Saturday night. We plan to have all 4 riders run their sections at least twice and have 2 chase trucks.
I am looking forward to a great weekend full of riding, fish tacos, and cold beer!

motorcycle riders are good people, if you see a TBH sticker say whats up!

yeah, that is going to suck. Any idea what the highs are during the day in that area?

break em or leave em home, but dont let them think baja is safe or easy.

Took it out two (or three?) weeks ago on a trip from Santa Veronica to Mikes. Besides the crappy mileage the only other problem I have is not enough top end speed on it. I'm not sure but think that at some point it all just turns to wheelspin, I'm already running dangerously low air pressure and an E-line 200w/flywheel weight with 15/45 gearing, but it might just be too much oooomph for my scrawny butt as I can't even hit 100.

Hmmmm, I run anything from 15/38 to 15/45. Wheel spin is still a problem with the taller gear at speed. Of course, mine has a little more engine work done......

We had a good pre run. It was between 90 and 102 degrees during the day on the section from laguna salada to San Matias. From San Matias to Valle T it cooled down to the 70's. There is a really rocky jeep trail section about 15 miles north of borrego that is interesting. It isn't very long but it did take out my skidplate around there.
