If I had met other riders heading to Cabo Pulmo, I may have gone. Having heard the road is unpaved and the riding can get pretty technical, and not feeling confident in my riding or mechanical skills, I opted not to venture out solo. A windsurfing fanatic I met while camping back in San Felipe […]Read more "Northbound!"
This trip was not about getting to the tip of Baja. I didn’t have much interest in going to a city Americans flock to for Sammy Hagar’s bar and luxury resorts.. but then I looked at a map. It was only two hours away from La Paz. I could drop by Todos Santos along the way to […]Read more "Fuck it. I’ll go to Cabo."

The ride into the campground goes past huge salt flats (this is the site of the world’s largest salt works) on a road which starts as paved and then varies for the final 15km […]Read more "A Whale of a Time"
Prior to my initial departure, I learned that my friend Brenden and his girlfriend Christina were also going to be on a motorcycle trip in Baja. They had firm plans to stay at a hotels, but seeing as how I prefer to go where the wind blows, I wasn’t sure if we would see each other on […]Read more "Friends in the Bay of LA"
