    Looking to join a group to ride with this Spring or Fall

    Nope, I wasn't trying to scare you, I was sincerely being nice and trying to help you have great experience down South. I get to talk to Baja riders all the time via phone and email (for 20 years) knowing that most will never come and don't need to pay for a guide. So I'm helpful when I can be and hopefully, they'll send us business or referrals in the future? Or at least come away knowing we care about safety, even if they don't ride with Baja Bound. Safe travels! Really! Jennifer Morton Baja Bound Adventures

    Shipping bikes from Cabo to San Diego

    From another topic but applies better here; We will have an enclosed trailer in La Paz after the 1000 with room and tiedowns for bikes to be brought to CA. Leaving from Marina Hotel, back in CA 26th.

    2010 BBB Stories - let's hear them

    A little behind the scenes: George Antill (aka: AnnouncerDude) had abdominal surgery a few days before the Beach Bash and couldn't ride with us this year. So he and his lovely wife Linda drove to Escondido from Las Vegas to unload a van full of donated ambulance supplies he collected. They visited for a few minutes then turned around and drove back. George was clearly in pain from the long drive but, as always, sported a smile! Brian Riebe had to stay behind because of a family emergency but still purchased a defibulator and shipped it here in time. Brian, we missed you and Kristie Lane but your time and energy is greatly appreciated! Our 10 year old testing the machine on poor George. You would never know he was on pain meds and had to put up with Linda's terrible driving (allegedly) for 10 hours

    New Rider on a YZ450

    I'm 5'6" and ride a 450X, man what I wouldn't give to have your legs! Don't waste your time on a small bike, you'll be too cramped. You can't feel proper form and get your muscle memory going if your knees are up by your elbows and you're too close to the bars. I'm guessing your reach is long too? You're tall and strong so practice balance! I ride my husband's XR650 sometimes (when I have to) and I've also ridden big dual sport bikes like the BMW HP2 Enduro and big KTM's. When you can balance, weight is not a problem. Remember the throttle goes both ways, just because it's a 450 doesn't mean you have to ride fast

    Icon - Here's a photo from the San Nicolas @ the '09 Baja 1000 You'll recognize the SCORE class 40 champs Bill and Brian from the BBB1. Guess which one is their friend Darrin? He couldn't even hold still for a photo, I can't wait to see what he does on a dirt bike I've been told Manny is pretty attached to his squirrel trophy so I better get another one just in case.

    Baja Beach Bash 2010 - your input requested

    Ok, I have a few ideas for special tests: 1) Tire changing competition 2) Balance beam 3) An obstacle course where the rider is blindfolded and their passenger has to direct them, 1st gear only for safety of course! I'm currently taking applications for my passenger Well? Can't wait for Summer and riding with you guys again!
