    It was $5k US, including the rental gear. At the tour link at the very top, they have pricing for various trips All I had to pay for on top of that was flight, and any booze I drank.
    This was and still is by far the most I've spent on an experience. I'm a super cheap ass when it comes to buying something that I can't sell after. I can't say how happy I am with the investment of this baja trip, I think about it every week still and it makes me smile.
    I forgot about the link up top, got too caught up in the story and experience haha.

    That actually sounds like a pretty good value, since any kind of guided tour is expensive. Awesome, this is awesome, and you are awesome.

    Great shots and cool stories.

    Seems like 5k well worth of an experience that you will treasure for the rest of your life.

    Hey! Shout out to Chris Haines. That moto-tour looks super relaxing; I know that's how I would enjoy Baja.

    This year's 1000 looks like a pretty low turnout, half the entries compared to 2019 (Covid obviously). Looking forward to a CRF450x finish in Pro Moto Ironman

    Don't mean to hijack but if you enjoyed this thread, follow Larry Janesky as he looks for redemption at this years Baja 1000: Into the Dust 3.

    Thanks for posting. You got me all excited for dirt biking....
    Have a few buddies that did this too. Sounds like an unreal time. Hope to cross that off the list one day.

    Great read. Back when I was in Uni, my cousin and I bought sport bikes in Vegas - flew down, picked them up, rode south to LA, then all the way back up the coast to Victoria. Since then we've both talked about doing something like this (i.e. off road instead of on) a bunch of times... looks like a great experience.

    The ROI for your <$10k investment is incredible, you'll remember this forever.

    Agree, any once-in-a-lifetime experience is worth $5-$10k.

    I love fly in, drive home trips. I've done it 4 times, and it's always fun especially with a good friend to share it with.
