Three Amigos go to Baja February 2010

Three Amigos go to Baja February 2010

The trip was plan on president day weekend for five days down and back. Day 1 started in Encinitas, Ca around 7:00 Am heading toward San Ysidro, Ca for first gas stop before crossing border. After crossing border we stop at Mexico immigration office where we picked up our Tourist Visa which is free if staying less than 7 days. The Tourist Visa process was about 30 minutes.

Our next important move was getting thru Tijuana as quickly as possible by getting on the toll road. There was one problem the exit to toll road was under construction. Without the ability to read Spanish detour sign we ended in the city looking for a way to enter toll road. After riding around 30 minutes lost in Tijuana city stopped at local fire station for direction. With me no Spanish and fire department very little English I figure out I needed to go north on main road then find a walk over bridge crossing main road then go right. Around 9:00 AM toll road entrance was located.

The first 100 miles on MXC 1 toll road had 3 toll booth and a check point it’s a tourist zone and somewhat scenic but nothing to write home about. Once through Ensenada the next 100 miles is agricultural region very beautiful with twisted roads perfect for testing the spyders ability. Stopping in San Vicente to gas up and drink some water we headed back down the road. While traveling through smaller towns we encounter speed control devices, keeping your speed down was mandatory or you could take flight or rattle you teeth out.

After reaching San Quintin at southern end of agricultural region the road runs down a open coastal plains region along the Pacific Ocean then turns east into the hills of El Rosario. El Rosario was a gas stop and also had a check point before heading into boonies towards Guerrero ***** which was around 200+ miles away this distance required a gas stop filling up from a 50 gallon drum. Make sure 5 gallon gas can is full before allowing them to fill up. Also do one bike at a time so extra gas can go into next bike. Around 20 miles outside Guerrero ***** we lost our sunlight. One of the riders had HID lights and driving lights mounted so it was like daylight on the road. Desert Inn motel at border of Baja and Baja Sur was our stopping point for tonight.

Pictures from Day 1

Stay tuned more to follow...
