I've just been given a 1962 copy of Cycle News, in it is an article on a 963 mile trail going from Tijuana to La Paz. Dave Ekins and Bill Robertson set out to beat the record held by a jeep driver who made the trip in just under four days. Dave and Bill rode to La Paz on their pre proddy two cylinder Honda scramblers in 39 hours and 56 minutes. My question to you guys is, is this the beginings of the Baja 1000? or is it a completely differant route? If it is the same route what sort of times are they doing today?

Don't ever challange Ron, when it comes to eating anything. When he was a little one, I had to feed him a couple of loafs of bread and a gallon of water just before we went out to dinner, just so he would eat normal.

Two things about Mexico though: dont get hurt and BE CAREFUL. Remember that you can end up as a hood ornament on some ranchers truck.
