My Son and I have ridden off road since he was on a Honda XR50. He is now a Freshman in college at the University of Tennessee and our time together riding has fallen off dramatically ever since he got his drivers license. I'm at the point where I have to bribe him to spend time with me over his friends, I'm not above this as long as I'm having fun too. So for Spring Break this year I finally booked a trip he and I have talked about for years. I went on line and booked a trip to Baja with Go Baja Riding http://www.gobajariding.com/.
The trip was fantastic, perfect weather, great riding, amazing sceanery, and fantastic food. This was an all enclusive tour with bikes, fuel, lodging included. The only time I took my wallet out was to buy Margaritas or Beer.
Bruce Anderson is the owner of Go Baja Riding and was our ride leader, he employed another rider Steve who was our tail rider making sure no one got lost, ran out of fuel or broke down. The third member of the Go Baja team was Ricardo who drove the truck with all our gear, carried the fuel, set up our lunches out on the trail, performed maintenance on the bikes, cleaned goggles, etc..
The crew was very professional, the trip was very well planned and conducted.
This trip was advertized as a "Father and Son" trip and there were three Fathers and three Sons on this trip.
Here is a shot of me
