A lot of that reflects like what it was to drive to La Paz before the 1970s!
No paved roads between before Colonet and way past Constitucion.
No graded roads between El Rosario and San Ignacio.

Sadly, on the 2nd day of riding which was most of the coast, my brand new Hero 6 said it was recording, but didn't save any of the files. Ughhh....

It recorded perfectly from the highway to the coast day one. I'm so peeed off.

Anyway, I left the truck and bikes in Loreto. Going to run it from the Wall to Bahia Blanco going back North in a month or so.

JZ,
JUST STOP IT......your ride posts get me so envious and jonesing for my next trip down, it is almost unbearable....:cool:

That Pacific strip is a ride I have wanted to do for too long....and will do it this winter....and want to make it a several day camping trip just because it would be a shame to rip through....probably would do it both ways with Catavina as a turn around pit stop.

Bummer about the GoPro...

I know it's early....but anyone interested in spending several days doing that with me this November/December....or March??? U2 me

Great pictures of a really beautiful area.

GED let us know when your going, maybe things can happen. I love that section and I love to surf fish too, when they're biting.

What where the temps when you rode. One 2 smoke and one 4 stroke. What was fuel range on 2 smoke.

Mid to high 60's. Seemed warmer because the sun was out. Very nice temps. Yeah, one 2 stroke (mine) and my kid's 4 stroke. Not 100% sure on gas, so don't quote me, but think I used around 5 gallons over 130 mile. 4 stroke does better.

We spent one day riding to Agua Verde. It was about 98. Hot as balls, but not bad when you were moving. The water was very cool.

Legit. Love that run, but as mentioned, like it better with some camping, fishing, surfing in the mix. Good on ya for taking a cool ride with your kid, and thanks for posting up the pics.

Is it a 300 ktm 5 gal 130 miles about right. My buddy took a 300 Gas Gas he used 8 gal fuel 180 miles. Still had to bum fuel from us. Are you geared up for roads. All my bikes Are geared up better MPGs and less revs.
