I'm hoping for some honest input. I'm heading out for a motorcycle ride and thinking of riding down the Baja Peninsula to Cabo San Lucas. I plan to stop in San Diego to get Mexico insurance the day before and cross in Tijuana at 6:00 AM with a full tank of gas, ride south for about 300 miles before my first stop, then fuel and another 300 miles. Then I feel I can relax and enjoy the ride.
I've crossed into Mexico several times but never left the tourist area before. I've read that Tijuana isn't any more dangerous than Detroit. Don't ride at night and don't look for trouble.
Is this trip that dangerous? I've been riding for 25+ years, 280,000 riding and 17 years of road racing experience. I'm very experienced on a bike but just want some honest advice of what to expect.
Sounds like fun. What kind of bike you have?
I ride a Yamaha FJR1300. Here is a week ago on top of Bear Tooth pass in Wyoming.
