2018 Barf Baja Bash - its happening now!

2018 Barf Baja Bash is happening now. We will use this thread to update when possible, allow folks to follow us via Spotwalla, and add pics with recaps when we return.

Different groups are leaving through out the week... some tonight. All will meet Bahia de Los Angeles by Saturday. Early groups will be riding Window Rock and some others the desolate coast west of Catavina before the main ride starts Sunday.

Most of the same evening destinations this year with new routes to get there. Its been a tough year on participants with multiple pre trip injuries over the past couple of months and family obligations. For those that cant make it, we will be thinking of you in Baja and look forward to you joining us in 2019!

Lots of frantic last minute preparations and plans being modified. Thanks to all for being so generous with each other and being flexible to ensure all make it down to Baja.

You can follow us on here on Spotwalla. Password is Bajahaha018

This year we have 18 folks and one Bossdog.

Baja F Yeh!

For those keeping track of the stats... thats only three Honda XR400R's this year and one 954 with dirt tires. Three XR's period. As many Beta's as XR's. More Italians than XR's (3 Betas and an Italian Husqvarna TE610.) Two Suzukis, two Yamahas, and the odd guy on the Kawasaki. Three orange Austrians and two Austrians trying to pass themselves off as Swedish.

A perfect example of one of my favorite quotes:

Remember, adventures are never fun while you're having them.
