Can we be honest? Winter isn’t exactly our favorite time. For those in colder climates, it often means parking the bikes for a while and dreaming of warmer weather. But at MotoQuest we are lucky to have a wintertime adventure that centers around our Los Angeles rental location with a destination of the gorgeous Baja peninsula. While we offer four total trips to the peninsula, our two Northbound adventures are booked up. That leaves our two Southbound adventures from February 1 – 10, 2020 or March 1 – 10, 2020 and we recommend taking full advantage of one of the most affordable international trips on our schedule.

The Southbound adventures offer a unique opportunity to first take the memory-filled trip down the peninsula coast, wrapping up the trip in San Jose del Cabo. This final destination is the perfect place to tack on a few extra days to relax after riding roughly 1,300 miles. You can also have any family or friends who aren’t game for a two-wheeled adventure to meet up with you and enjoy some fun in the sun while so many are buried in the snow.

The March Southbound trip is shaping up to be a great mix of riders thanks to our Moto Maven Robyn “RoKo” Kocienski helping staff the adventure. When two-wheeled Baja seekers find out that they can see so much more on a MotoQuest Best of Baja adventure compared to renting, it becomes a top trip on many explorer’s lists.

When it comes to Baja, we’ve heard all the reasons why some might exclude it from their bucket list. Do you have any reservations about taking a trip to Baja? Crossing the border? The food? The roads? MotoQuest founder Phil Freeman lays to rest any misconceptions and paints a beautiful picture of a trip south of the border that it will be hard to not end the video without wanting to sign up.

Now that we are in December with less opportunity to ride, it’s the perfect time to start planning your mid-winter getaway. Check the dates with your significant other, grab a best friend or come solo and find out why Baja is a perpetual retreat for motorcyclists.

Give the gift of permission…

Gift-giving samurais seem to have it figured out that the best gift isn’t something you can put under a tree. While it’s probably not recommended to spring a full MotoQuest adventure on your gift recipient without them having a say, what you can give is the “Gift of Permission” as we call it.

Wrap it up with a pretty bow and let the rider you love know that they can choose their adventure with all your blessing behind it! That will make for some jaw-dropping moments this holiday season!

We’ll talk more about this next week, but giving you some food for thought as we enter the first week of December.
