Baja is a phenomenal place to ride an adventure motorcycle off road. Experiencing Desert mountains, plains and coasts is something all of us adventure riders want. However, riding this untamed terrain can be challenging so, we have different levels of Baja tours. The terrain can be very technical but mostly, it is the condition of the roads that makes the riding tougher. Sand and loose terrain is unavoidable riding in the desert anywhere, Baja is no exception. See the descriptions in our Level 1 and Level 2 tours to pick the one that is right for you.

The Level 1 Baja Tour will be a 50/50 mix of on and off pavement riding. We will choose easier dirt and unpaved roads and some really scenic paved routes. If you are a beginner rider and have not taken any formal training on a big adventure bike, we highly suggest taking our training before going on the tour. If you have taken our level 1 training or a training elsewhere, this is the tour for you. It is not a requirement that you have taken training from us or anyone else but, it gives us a chance to get to know you a bit and help evaluate your comfort level and skill set for the terrain we will be tackling on this tour.

What kind of motorcycle do I need?

There is no one answer to this question because it depends on preferences, riding ability, and of course, budget. Any motorcycle can be converted into a dual sport bike. Heck, we know people who have converted their Harleys into adventure bikes! For this tour, we will be riding terrain that is big adventure bike friendly (BMW 1200GS, KTM 1290 etc.). However, we have had many customers ride smaller and mid size dual sport bikes and enjoy the ride just as much. If you don’t have a bike right now, we can help you with a rental.

Will a support truck be following us?

Yes. Our support truck will be carrying everything we need including room for your gear if you don’t want to carry it on your bike.

*Note: Support truck will follow us as long as we get at least 6 People

How do I need to pack my bike?

Pack lightly, efficiently, and in a way that encourages proper bike performance. We can help you with that! Since we are staying in all hotels, we can all travel lite on this tour. We suggest daily packing of snacks, water, and clothing for layering to adjust for the conditions.

What protection do I need for my bike?

We recommend the following at the minimum:

Note: Not having these items does not mean you can’t come on the tour. It just means your bike may get damaged and the protection we recommend is for major working components.

  • Skid Plate
  • Crash Bars
  • Headlight guard
  • Radiator Guards
What tires do I need for my bike?

We recommend at least a 50/50 tire and even better is a more dirt or off-road focused tire. We will be riding through some technical sections that are more comfortable with a more off road focused tire.

How many people are in the riding group?

We limit our groups to 10 people

How do we handle extreme weather?

We will ride in most weather conditions. However, our guides are well equipped to make the best decision for the group regarding trail and weather conditions and may re-route the riding day.

What should I pack?

For You
Clothes:

Proper riding gear is a must! If you have any questions about riding gear and clothing, feel free to contact us and we can cover this in more detail. In general, people tend to over pack clothing items. Besides riding gear (including a helmet, jacket, gloves, pants, and boots), you will need layers for frequent weather changes. Consider packing a separate set of comfortable clothes/shoes to wear in town or at the hotel while we are lounging.

For your Bike
Tools:

If you have a good set of tools it is not a bad idea to bring them; some people like to be self-sufficient. If you don’t have any or want to save room we should have enough tools to fix or repair most bikes on the fly.
