I’ll Just Skip to the Baja Part
I moved out of my apartment in Boston 10 months ago and have been traveling the US in my truck with various dirtbikes. I’ve had lots of great adventures….. but right now I’m in Cabo San Lucas so I figure I’ll just write up a little bit about Baja.
After some last minute maintenance in a Home Depot parking lot I blast out of Los Angeles wide eyed and anxious. I only have 40 miles on the bike since I purchased it and know nothing about it’s history aside from the obvious signs of neglect, abuse, and wear. Who knows what will happen – but I’m now committed to 3,000 miles off-road, and like all my travels, I’ll deal with issues as they come.
Two hundred miles of American pavement later I arrive with trepidation at the Mexican border. Patrol waved me across into Tecate without so much as making me stop my bike – so far so good.
