Dude. Look me up. Maybe I'll roll down a ways with you when you're passing through and we'll tour a few trails. I'll be returning back at HQ tomorrow. You can PM me. I'll give you my contact info.
If you've got a great attitude, a bit of wisdom and common sense, you'll be in great hands. Beyond the horror stories and many of the misfits that tell them, you'll be navigating through the land of God, and you're more than likely to be enriched by your travels.
PM me and I'll provide my contact info. Like I said, I may be available to log some miles as well.

Oh yeah and my girlfriend has travelled in Mexico for her entire life with no troubles but just recently we got shafted by a motorcycle cop for all our money (it was only $35 but still all we had as we approached the border) for what he said was speeding, That was BS we were slower than all the other Mexico registered cars on the highway. Definetly avoid Tijuana and I've not heard anything good about Juarez either.

Go south from there camping on the beach or out in the desert if you prefer, nothing wrong at all with Gonzaga Bay, Bahia de los Angeles, and Punta San Francisquito. At San Francisquito I would just pony up the $20-$30 he charges for one of his grass-roofed beach huts and fish taco dinners. That's just me, if you want to stretch out under a cactus and eat power bars, that's cool too.
That's just my two cents. Oh, and I think the DRZs rock in Baja.

going through calexico and running down the cortez side/ returning on the pacific is a great suggestion, if you have the time and the money, that's what i'd do.

I'll bite.... I love the place, but am taking a hiatus.
Be safe, travel smart. Know your in a 3rd world country.... Don't take anything for granted.
I'd also stay towards the Mexicali to San Felipe area.
... just too much going on coastal or even along the common travelled routes (for pre-run fun or pleasure riding). "Too much" meaning, it only takes 'once' for it to be too much for me.
Who woulda' thunk... El Rosario of all places!!!
