While we will continue this tradition next year, this year we are not going due to concerns with the coronavirus and possible border closures. Look for this event to resume next year. -Nick
Thinking about Baja again, this time keeping to more of the original format, shorter and sweet. This is my first take on the route, this time meeting up just this side of Tecate at Portero Campground.
As proposed, we would cross at Tecate, head down MH3 towards ensenada but stay on 3 and head west towards San Felipe. GS bikes can hit Mike's sky Ranch while street bikes continue to San Felipe. From there we make our way down MH5, with stops in Gonzago Bay area, San Ignacio, then Mulege for 2 nights. Starting back we could stop in Catavina, Rancho Meling, then Valle de Guadalupe for the last night in Baja. Then Joshua Tree and onto Death Valley for the annual BMW NorCal campout.
There will be a registration charge at some point, but riders can sign up now to show interest and get on a mailing list.

About the ride - we are a group of club and non club folks doing this ride on our own. No support, no guides. Everyone handles their own documentation and their own insurance, and brings their own gear and money to cover expenses. We will break up into different riding groups at meet up at the end of the day destination. We will sometimes ride strenuous, longer days of riding which require leaving early.There is a chance riders will become separated so everyone needs to handle their own navigation and know where we are going. This is not a "tag along" ride. And while Baja is awesome and friendly, riders need to know how to handle themselves in another country.
Below is the proposed route.
