Experienced motorcyclists, with a minimum intermediate capability of experience in dual-sport are encouraged to join. The itinerary will cover more than 1000 miles, over six days, which is detailed below.
Day 1 – San Diego – Ensenada
After arriving in San Diego to meet for a reception dinner the night before, guests are now ready to ride, and assigned their machines for the journey. The first day is a taste test of all terrain, from the coastline of San Diego, through the mountains and into the desert before cutting back through Mexico toward the coast for the night. The ride heads east through the Otay Mountain Wilderness, with a mix of twisty roads and off-road terrain before arriving at the Tecate border crossing into Baja California. Once over the border the group will head southwest through the villa de Guadelipe on the Ruta de Vino, and into Ensenada where the first day ends in time to appreciate the unmatched sunset over the Pacific Ocean.
Day 2 – Ensenada – San Felipe
The second day is not for the faint of heart, the tour goes full gas, nearly 275 miles the San Martir Mountains National Park, tracing the steps of the hill climb, to arrive at the Observatory for a beautiful lunch vista. The group heads down and out to the Gulf of California, where the second day of riding will end in San Felipe.
Day 3 – San Felipe to Bahia de los Angeles
The journey continues south on the third day, again taking in coastal views, this time from the east, mixing dirt and asphalt along the way. The trip begins to show the real capability of these middle weight bikes now as the road opens up in the desert landscape on the east side of baja. With the miles adding up the group arrives at the southernmost part of the trip, in the “Bay of LA”.
Day 4 – Bahia de Los Angeles to Cataviña
Heading north from Bahia de Los Angeles, the fourth day will be a test of mixed road conditions traversing the interior of Baja. A mixed desert landscape, the tour will navigate across the desert spending long stretches off-road. After many challenging miles in the desert, putting a kickstand down will be especially rewarding when arriving in Cataviña, with a chance to remove the boots, wash away the dust, and enjoy some well-deserved resfreshment.
Day 5 – Cataviña to Ensenada
The tour heads to the Pacific coastline for the penultimate day of the activity, closing the loop as we head back into Ensenada. The coastline is celebrated for its open nature, giving the group many chances to take in sights turning in and out of the disparate coastline roads, asphalt, gravel, sand are all on the menu for the day, and with a bit of luck and good timing, some celebrated seafood of Ensenada before setting out on our final day.
DAY 6 – Ensenada to San Diego
On the last ride day, the tour takes a casual detour throughout the remaining coastal cities as the parade of Tuareg 660’s inch closer to the Tijuana border. A more casual day, mixed with a few sites, some last delicious bites, and a hope of limited traffic to arrive back in San Diego to complete the tour. With many miles, countless smiles, and some new riding stories the group wraps up with a nice meal before parting ways.
