- Baja Mexico TourNeeds location$2,495.00
Join Whisky Throttle Adventures for an unforgettable, 16 day, On-Road motorcycling experience in the heart of Baja. Beginning at the boarder crossing at Tecate, we will head all the way down to Cabo San Lucas for a couple days of beaches and Margaritas before stopping for Whale watching on our return trip home.
Due to Meetup restrictions on the number of characters a post can have, full itinerary is available at https://whiskythrottle.com/events
In order to make this trip cost viable there is a minimum of 7 tickets that must be sold. RSVP's are due by Feb 12th to allow time to book accommodations. Each ticket is a single rider, single room. Couples wishing to share a room can contact me for pricing.
This trip is Pavement based with limited dirt so any bike capable of comfortably riding at 75mph and any riding level is welcome. Trip will involve multiple days of 200-300 miles. Some dirt will be encountered as the highways are still experiencing reconstruction from the hurricane. There will be a few options along the way for some dirt alternate routes, but basically this is a paved ride.
All hotel accommodations in Mexico, your Mexican Tourist Visa (FMM card) and a chase truck are included in ticket price. Travel to Mexico, Fuel, Insurance (required as your US insurance does not cover Mexico), Food and Souvenirs are NOT included in price.
Everyone is responsible for their own travel to the Mexican boarder. I find Camp Verde, AZ to be a good half way point from Denver and The Copper Inn a nice reasonably priced hotel. Please use the comments section if you want to organize car pools. I can take 4-5 bikes and 1 passenger if people want to take a fuel efficient car down.
I will be taking my Tacoma down as a chase truck. Each person can put one (1) duffle bag in the bed if you want to keep weight off your bike or bring a bike that doesn't store a lot. This is a Pavement ride and we will be staying in hotels each night, *No camping*, so you don't need to bring the kitchen sink!
Bikes should all be in good mechanical condition and must carry tools specific to your bike as well as a spare tube for Front and Rear even if you are tubeless. Mexican roads are full of potholes and tubeless doesn't seal when the rims bent! (it's happened) I will have a spare 21 and 18" tire in the truck. If any one has a spare 19 and 17 they want to add that would be cool.

As always call with any questions. 970-308-0374
*Lastly I am looking for someone who wants to drive the chase truck. All rooms will be provided in compensation for driving.*
- Arizona BDRNeeds location$100.00
Come join us for a fantastic week of riding desert, cactus, mountains and the wild west. I have not yet had the opportunity to ride the AZBDR and am really looking forward to checking that one off.
Reserve your spot today at https://whiskythrottle.com/events
Blessed with a surprising number of mountain ranges, the Arizona BDR is more green and mountainous than many people expect. Starting on the US/Mexico border, the 750- mile route stays east of Tucson and Phoenix and explores the historic Empire Ranch, Sierra Ancha Cliff Dwellings, Mogollon Rim, Saguaro Cactus Forests, Navajo Nation, wild horses, Vermillion Cliffs and options to see the Grand Canyon from vantage points most people never see.
Best time of year: April through June and Late September/October. July and August have very high temperatures and should be avoided. August is also monsoon season and is not a good time to ride the route.
Additional Route Information
IMPORTANT: . You MUST obtain an Arizona State Land Trust Recreational Permit. Visit AZ Recreation Permit.
Another permit is needed for riding through Navajo Nation (Section 8). You MUST obtain a pass to ride and camp in Navajo Nation.
I have not yet had the opportunity to ride the AZBDR and am ready to check it off the list. I think this spring is the perfect time to do that.
Rough plan right now will be to leave Denver on Sat, May 4th (may the 4th be with you) and return Sunday the 12th or sooner if we finish early. Right now I'm looking at taking my XR650R to better handle the sand although this is a BDR route and should be passable on any Adv bike with a decent rider. If I do take my XR I'll drive down to a mid point (probably Flagstaff or a friends house in Show Low) and riding to the start from there. Maybe we can organize a car pool. I can haul 4-5 bikes and 1-2 passengers.
No Itinerary is set after we start the ride. We will just take each day as it comes and deal with challenges as they present themselves. Please plan to camp every night as no hotel plans are being made. We will likely get a few hotels as the opportunities arise.
Prior rides with this group are required to attend. This is NOT a beginner ride.
Please make sure your bike is in good mechanical condition with good or new knobby tires.
All riders are required to have GPS or a phone app and be able to navigate themselves should someone get separated. GPS tracks can be downloaded for free from https://ridebdr.com/download-tracks
