Recently we have been riding mostly in Baja and the big question from some is simply: "Why Baja?", when there are plenty of awesome places to ride stateside like Glamis, Coral Canyon, Ocotillo Wells, Pismo Beach and the list can go on.Share this post on:
So why Baja? Well, it only takes one trip south of the border to feel the difference in the atmosphere, down there you can see they really love offroad. Some may say that offroad is the national sport of Baja, and the locals show it on their t-shirts, stickers on the walls and even their cars looking big, mean and ready for the mountains.
The riding is just awe-inspiring and very different from riding in the US, and it is because it doesn't end you can ride for days. For real! You can travel the entire peninsula from the border to where the Pacific meets the Sea of Cortez.
The locals in Baja are also some of the friendliest and most helpful people you'll ever meet, especially out on the trail. Even when you're just taking a break on the side of the trail, having a
drink of water or taking a picture, you can be sure that anyone passing by will stop and see if you need some help, and that's a great feeling.
The views are just spectacular in a place where you can go from riding on the beach on the Pacific side to the dunes on the sea of Cortez in a single day's ride. You get to see not only the beach but also: the mountains, valleys, pine forests (yeah there are pine forests in Baja), salt flats, lakes and dry lake beds.
But for me, the best part of riding anywhere is hanging out with your friends and if you don't know your riding mates when the day starts by the end of it. Brothers in the dust, sharing stories over some beers as the sun goes down. Yup Baja is the place for Offroading, dirt bikes, quads, trucks, UTV's - it doesn't matter. Let's Ride!
