In February 2008 Rolf Soltau and I rode from Costa Mesa CA to Cabo San Lucas in Baja California and back. We joined up with members from the San Francisco Motorcycle Club. Beautiful riding with great companions and a whole lot of fun. It was one of my most memorable trips. I hope to reprise a similar trip in the future.

Yeah the drug wars are real, but the further south we went it was chill. Most of the locals were tripping that we were on scooters. We always rode with at least one other rider in sight of each other and no riding at night.
