Interested in riding Baja?

Join us on our annual Cross Border Ride, timed to dove-tail into the BMW NorCal Death Valley campout. 

Motorcycle travel in Baja is unexpectedly easy, inexpensive, and a fun, rewarding experience.

Our Cross Border Ride is a casual ride, not a "guided" or tour group ride. Folks are paying their own way and ultimately responsible for their own navigation and lodging. We have a loose travel itinerary of daily stops but folks travel in small groups or by themselves, meeting back up for lunch or local stops of interest, and of course where ever we are staying for the night. Folks need to be comfortable with foreign travel, should have some comfort with spanish (or have a translation app), have their own maps, and know exactly where we are heading each day in case they are separated, etc. Folks also have to have medical conditions in control, this is a third world country and we travel through some remote areas. We travel mostly on paved roads but riders should expect some occasional off-pavement riding as well. 

The following are the few "must-have" items to travel in Baja:

Valid Passport

Valid Driver's License

Mexican Motorcycle Insurance

FMM "Tourist Card" 

TIVP Temporary Vehicle permits are not required for travel in Baja

And a sense of adventure!
