Re: Racing the Baja 1000

Impressive feat. Kudo's to both of you!

There's a 24 hour race in a couple of weeks if you're looking for a warm up. http://www.thegutbuster24.com/

My son will be racing it again this year and he uses the Task Racing Lights. He has a light bar on the bike, but says the helmet lights are the most important. He runs two on his helmet and calls them the Mickey Mouse lights...

Re: Racing the Baja 1000

I will likely make the trip to support JT and Rich and see what all the hoopla is about. For anyone wanting to tag along, buy a plane ticket to Phoenix (where I live) and I can handle getting you over to the races. I have a small herd of DR350's and WR426's we can take along too.

My first Baja trip is in late March, after uncles. Looking forward to new adventures on this side of the L48.

I have the bike loaded in my truck now and will be leaving shortly for Murphy's MX.
I can take you guys through the ... more interesting bits.... of CTOR if you'd like.
