BAJA TURTLE #297X IRON MAN 2009/2008 international races to the finish line, We brought home the almost impossible to get INTERNATIONAL: SOLO "Ironman Trophy" for the SECOND year in a row.

We also brought Cancer awareness through the Pink Hummer, Ninja "The Viper" Lena, BAJAPITS RACING and General Tires Synergy Team (Mike Horner) to our racers and spent a racers and crew day at the Castro-Limon Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico on November 18th and raised funds for the clinic and it's operation.

I applaud:worthy::moon::worthy: all that gave me the courage to compete in the most dangerous races in the world and I thank you all for your moral support. I am also impressed with the Detailing job on my race bike at each 2009 SCORE PIT SERVICE OF THE YEAR "BAJAPITS" as the Bike always looked "Ice Clean"

The reliable street legal Honda 2002 XR650R on display at Fun Bike Center, San Diego, CA was again riden to the BAJA 500, Vegas to Reno and BAJA 1000 race events from my home in San Diego to complete the races on one set of Dunlops per race with NO FLATS and then a safe return ride home to prove the quality of the Honda Race Bike and Dunlop Tires.

The Race Schedule:

Baja 250 March 13-15, 2009 FINISHED SOLO IRONMAN

Baja 500 June 5-7, 2009 FINISHED SOLO IRONMAN

Vegas to Reno August 20, 2009 FINISHED SOLO IRONMAN

Sheesh - you would think with all those sponsors you can step up and race class 40 or 50 or maybe 1 :moon:

Nice work Ken. Congrats on finishing solo once again... this was not an easy course to solo by any means. The ride home up the 5... piece of cake :cheers: Next year I would like to see you do a wheelie all the way home to keep things interesting.
