Road Ride In Mexico
Posted July 07, 2006 - 06:11 AM
Went for a short road ride in Mexico this past 4th of July weekend on my 05 WR. It's not set up for street or dual sport, however in Mexico you could ride any motorcycle on the streets w/out license plate. Took the old road from Rosarito to La Mission about 25 miles one way. She felt kinda wierd on the corners, top heavy oh ya, but that could also be because I havn't road on a street bike in over 20 years. Last street bike was 78 RD 400(still have it). She had lots of power of course now I could see why you need to gear it up a little as it seems like she was reving kind high for a long period of time. I plan on getin the 07 WR and seting her up for street/supermoto and cal plate. My plan was to find some trails in Mexico, but My buddies pulled out because they're scared.
Does anybody know of some cool trails just south of the border between Rosarito and Ensenada? Met an american dude that lives in Mexico and he rides his CR 500 all over the place down there.

Half the fun of Baja is finding new places on your own and using your GPS to record your trip, not to use your GPS a crutch. Be prepared and be adventurous!

This is exactly true and correct.
This lizard lady is a thief!! She went on rides with people that had been riding in Baja for 20-30years. Then took all the GPS data of trails that these people had made by hand and made money off of their blood sweat and tears. Don't support this crook.
I know a lot of Baja trails, have cut many miles myself, and have been involved with the Los Ancianos MC (the club that is responsible for the vast majority of trail building in Baja) for 30 years, and I can honestly not think of a single trail the LL has built on her own.
