    Baja 1000 2018

    score has been streaming some of the start / finish. they also should stream contingency. its pretty lame for most part. there is online tracking, so when those systems work good, which is never, you can follow bumps on a map. still kind of fun. they are streaming weatherman radio channel on race day - make a printout of cars / bikes and listen. some facebook sites like fishgistics usually have raceday updates and leader standings. individual teams will do updates. other than that... not sure if the highlight tv show still exists. if so, it will be in a month or 2 minimum, somewhere in the cable bottom below “espn the ocho”, and will be really lame. score app seems to be set up with the tracking

    SUV or pickup

    trading in my wife's 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV 4x4 this week for a 2018 Ford F-150. We needed a dependable vehicle that can handle a lot of dirt fire-road stuff. There are only a few real SUVs, most are glorified station wagons that only belong on city streets. Truck crew cab back seat is roomier than any vehicle on the market, and the 2.7 ecoboost will get the mileage of any suv. Transmission going out on her on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere @50K miles was reason enough to dump the jeep. But with a 9K budget, that tough. Probably go with a truck anyway. only problem with trucks is an old guy thing - man the higher the truck bigger the bitch for us old guys to load our bikes.

    Pirates cove

    I could be wrong, but I’ve never remembered seeing that place without the unfinished top floor. if they’re not going to finish it in the next decade, then slap a coat of paint on those bare blocks and call it finished. stop for lunch yeah, but I don’t think a lot of riders and off-roaders stay there. could be wrong. maybe it’s a good place, just kind of looks half finished with no plans of ever getting the work done. I personally think the food is just OK there

    Cuatro Casas

    hey ed i rode by 4 casas friday. ive stopped before, but never really gone and checked it out. Richard the owner, gave us a quick tour. it is really nice. He has 10 private rooms with bathrooms that sleep three. Charges 70 bucks a night. The dorm rooms are $20 a person. Really clean. you can make arrangements with him, if you are a guest, for breakfast or dinner. I think it would be a good option for your group.

    New Year's 2019

    current registration. Cross over only empty gas jugs.
  15. im thinking about getting an ADV bike maybe at the year for some fire roads and back road pavement, and keep the dirt bikes for dirt biking. any real life experience with the Royal Enfield Himalayan? Can't beat the price. 400cc. Local Triumph Dealer carries the Royal Enfield, but the Himalayan hasn't made it to his showroom yet (or at least when I stop in). https://royalenfield.com/motorcycles/himalayan/bike/
