BMW knew how to build reliable bikes then. One of the nicest parts of the bike was the grab rail attached to the seat and the BMW imprint on the back of the seat. I wish I had one of the towels that came in the tool kit.

Welcome harmonicamoon. I just can't stop thinking about riding down to Mexico.

Welcome to the forum. You will probably find many here that dream of riding where you do. I had a chance to ride the Baja Peninsula a couple of years ago. Saw some amazing sights and learned I'm very bad in the sand. The visit cured me of my fantasy that I needed to ride the Baja 500/1000. Now I can just stand back and respect the people that do. Really enjoyed your country it was an unforgettable experience.

Incredible video Dirt Dad. Thanks for sharing it. And thanks to Stromtrooper for making this communication possible!

I have never been to the baja, but it looks like it was good to you! I live in the Yucatan pennisula. It is a little different. Here in the jungle we have lots of wildlife. Jaguars, tapirs, snakes, and more. Very kewl! But that is what is incredble about Mexico. Every state has its own food, customs, dress, culture, etc. Come back soon!
