Take an adventure and explore northern Baja in Mexico. This 8-day all-paved motorcycle ride features the fantastic back roads of southern California, the desert solitude of Catavina, and an epic sunrise over the Sea of Cortez in Bahia de Los Angeles.  This ride is for those who don’t want to spend the entire day riding, but prefer to explore on and off the bike as you ride scenic paved roads through unadulterated desert landscapes each day. Wanna take a break from it all and enjoy warmer temperatures while experiencing great fresh food and genuine hospitality from friendly locals? If the answer is YES, then join us for an adventure that puts FUN at the top of the list.

Road Conditions: Paved roads. Be ready for road construction areas and other deviations as they come in Mexico.
