just a couple of quick things to road test this baby…

a couple of rides that need doing..

Baja January 2010

I’m thinking a 100% dirt ride, Sea of Cortez side of Baja, San Felipe, Gonzaga, Bay of LA, with a final destination of Punta San Francisquito

Punta San Francisquito

Punta San Francisquito Beach

Punta Sanfrancisquito Brews

Southwest Colorado Dual Sport Extravaganza and Dirt Bike Hobo Tour Summer 2010

Stage out of Ouray, Silverton, or Telluride and ride for a week.. ehhh?..

rocky mountain high

this picture is taken from Imogene Pass coming down into Telluride where you can look over and see Black Bear Pass zigging down to town. Works best to ride BB down to Telluride, since it one way going down from the top if you care to follow direction, then you can ride Imogene back across.

maybe even hit this spot:

    for lack of a better name.. let’s call the Summer 2010 trip, the Ouray Trip..

    My thinking so far..

    ..i think having a base of operations with a toy-hauler or two as a head quarters, but bring our dual-sport gear along as well would be fuking cool..

    find a great campground in the ouray/telluride/silverton area, and just fuking show up..

    plan our next days ride around a campfire, at night, with good friends, cooked animal flesh, and adult beverages..

    that way, if we felt like an extended treck onto the CDT or TAT we could drag our shit with us and camp out as we saw fit..

    i really don’t want to over-think or over plan this trip.. let’s pick a time frame and just go..

    Just some crap i’ve saved for the CDT
    The NPS has a pass that for $80/year gives you free access to all the national lands. I’ve used it enough to more than justify renewing it.

    Best advice I’ve heard about keeping human predators away is to scatter a few crushed beer cans and empty shotgun shells around your tent.

    Atlantic City, Wyoming

    I also have the Clarke tank and made it without using my Kolpin spare. I read about Wild Bill’s gun shop in Atlantic City selling gas out of cans and that was going to be my back up. Their phone number is 307-332-5981.

    My track between Pinedale and Rawlins is 225 miles. I can’t see anywhere we could have gotten fuel on that stretch. I don’t remember Terry having to tap into his Kolpin fuel packs (1.25 gal X 2) but he must have been close. I used to have a DRZ-S with a Clarke on it too, used it more for dirt riding than adv touring though.

    Bruce, I don’t remember (did it in July ’07) but you might join this yahoo group and ask there if you don’t get an answer here.

    My old City Select v7 shows that Conoco, but BigDog’s file lists Atl City as food and lodging only, no gas.

    I think we stopped in Pinedale and then Rawlins, 2 KLR’s, F650GS, and a DRZ with big tank. DRZ had extra fuel too, but I don’t think he needed it on that stretch.

    misc. crap:

      Costa del Sol Hotel in Bahia L.A. is the bomb. Victoria, the owner, prepared a huge bowl of fresh ceviche and non-stop margaritas and cervezas as the guys did air filter and other maintenance on the bikes. We were then served an incredible seafood buffett of fresh shrimp, scallops, white sea bass, and more ceviche. We could not eat it all. Victoria’s Great Dane Scooby Do kept us entertained. Another badass day of riding, and only a few cactus thorns to pull out.

    mexican tourist cards:

    Tecate – Easy office there at the border, bank coulple blocks away, probable bank line, parking not easy.
    Tijuana – All easy one-stop.
    Otay Mesa – Semi easy one-stop but you have to go into the “declare” area and then they treat you like typical “declare” crossing with full-on vehicle inspection. Not easy for the entire deal.
    Mexicali – I’ve only done it there 1 time, bit a of a mess, with long lines and some walking. Parking was goofy but I think we mightta been parked in wrong area.
    Ensenada – Pretty easy overall, one-stop, not so easy parking but you can taxi from easy San Nic parking lot.
