  2. Another great overview of the Trailmax Raid… Some more nuance and detail. One thing I picked up on is when he calls this maybe a 70% road/50% dirt. It actually is quite amazing on pavement. Better than a 50/50 and better than you’d expect. Another is by calling this merely 50% dirt (keep in mind that’s Europe; here they say 60%) I think they sell themselves shorts. I beat the hell out of these at High Sierra and they were fantastic. Never let me down. Don’t think I could say the same (off road) for the Missions. To be fair though, I’ve never pushed the Missions off road that hard. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Interesting video from the UK on Dunlop’s line of ADV tires. It calls the Mission tire 70/30 dirt/street! The US positions it as 50/50. So another reason they chose to call the Raid 60/40 dirt/street here. It points out that these designations are rather arbitrary and vary country to country. Trust your experience.
  7. My take on this year's Rally is up at YT. The movie presents video, pictures, narration and music... “Heaven” by The Psychedelic Furs and “The Rain Song” by Led Zep. Subscribe and Comment at Youtube! 👍
  8. Thank you Eric for all the effort you put in to get this rally up & going. It was a smaller but great rally. The weather was different but made for an unusual beautiful atmosphere in the area. It was a pleasure working with you & thank you for all the support. Hope we can get it together for next year. paul
  9. So good. Year after year this ride always keeps me yearning for more. You can spend a lifetime exploring this area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I think my favorite image is this one that must be seen on a large monitor to truly appreciate
  11. Big thanks to those who helped pull this off: @pceire32, @motochefarwi, Jonathan Dawson and more. That cold I had wiped me out as it seemed to @greedyg too. Hope no one else got it. sorry I missed that ride Saturday but @Brentowanted to do Silver Canyon but not solo. the weather was som amazing! Never seen it that cool in the day nor that mild in the morning. And the rain Saturday made for perfect trail conditions! It was cool seeing all the lakes full too. And no wildfire smoke! really enjoyed the tacos and hope others did as well. Hard to find an authentic Mexican taco here in Colombia so I was in heaven.
  12. Another fantastic series of imagery! I highly recommend you view these on a large monitor and then you’ll really get a feel for how beautiful this place is.
  13. Photos in the gallery now. share your photos and stories over in the ride report.
  14. Photos by @Stephen Gregory can be found in the gallery. Some great ones as usual..
  15. I've asked Stephen to put these in the gallery instead. Stand by
  16. Stephen Gregory took all the sick photos and on top of that rode some new High Sierras tracks. Thanks for the great shots. Oh did we mention the how epic the weather was up in the elevation too? Awesome. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  22. Jairo came from El Salvador just for the rally which I thought was cool. He and I have some mutual friends from my trip through there in 2021. he sent me these pics…
  23. Post your pics, videos and stories here! We will have photos from Stephen Gregory (Gregory Imagery) shortly in the gallery. My observations…. Really happy to see lots of old friends and make new ones. We had about 28 people this year and lots of ideas thrown around on how to increase that next year but it will hinge on two things I think: I need volunteers and will be promoting the event via Google ads vs FB/Instagram. When you post on the socials with your content, please tag #xladvhighsierra2023 My experience: very different weather this year! Our first rain Saturday morning and temps were much cooler in the day as well as much warmer (upper 40’s) in the morning. I was impressed with these new Trailmax Raid tires from Dunlop. Had them in both deep sand and well as steep rocky climbs. Food was super hard to come by for this particular weekend but the street tacos were super delicious, imho.

  24. Got home yesterday at about 4:00 totally exhausted [emoji1787]. Slept 12 hours. Lost $85 but it’s all good. Heads up! Please post your pics/videos in the Ride Report thread and not here. Thanks [emoji120] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. I get my insurance with either Baja Bound or Lewis & Lewis. Get it online then print it out. You’re supposed to get a tourist visa at the aduana but I never do for Baja Norte. I’ve never been asked for it. San Flippy I usually stay at Kiki’s. They have rooms or you can camp too. From there is great beach riding south for like 30 miles but watch the tides. A good days ride south is Gonzaga. Many stay at Alfonso’s but you need to reserve in advance and they’re not always that trustworthy in my experience. Read my review on Google maps. After that I usually go a bit further south then north on the main Hwy to Cataviña. Nice hotel there. Then El Rosario (cactus inn). Then like Erendira (coyote cal’s) Message me your email and I can send you tracks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  26. It sounds like you have an exciting trip planned to Baja Norte, with a visit to the San Felipe area and a border crossing in Mexicali. When planning a trip to Mexico, it’s important to make sure you have all the necessary documents and insurance in place. For entry into Mexico, you will need a valid passport. If you’re traveling by land, you may also need to obtain a tourist card (FMM) at the border, which allows you to stay in Mexico for up to 180 days as a tourist. You can obtain the FMM at the border or online before your trip. In terms of insurance, it’s a good idea to purchase travel insurance that covers medical expenses, trip cancellation, and other potential issues. You can purchase travel insurance from a variety of providers, either online or through a travel agent. It’s also important to check with your car insurance provider to see if your policy covers driving in Mexico. If not, you may need to purchase additional insurance for your vehicle. In addition to these documents and insurance, it’s also a good idea to familiarize yourself with the local customs and regulations, such as traffic laws and currency exchange rates. You might also want to research the areas you’ll be visiting and make any necessary reservations or bookings in advance. I hope this information helps you plan your trip to Baja Norte and have a safe and enjoyable journey!

      It also points out some interesting things...

    • This mirror is the product of much frustration- I spent years breaking other designs and wondering what was going on behind me on the road. Eventually, when I dropped my bike and found myself buying two(!) new master cylinders as a result, I decided it was time to make a really good mirror, one that would function well as a mirror, and also protect the bike (and me) from damage.

    • Time, 05:15 h. My alarm clock rings and it’s time for me to get my breakfast in my stomach, take a shower and jump on my bike! The 1,5 hour drive to the TT race track in Assen took me to the TT junior track and the CRT Holland training ground for the CRE track training. Here I met with 37 fellow Suzuki riders. Greeting us where the men and women from Suzuki Motors Holland who set up this training day.
