Veronica's (9-2000)

Steve, Tom and I visited Northern Baja California during early September of 2000.  We stayed at Rancho Santa Veronica.  Tom, was again, had by a water hazard (it happens every ride).  Steve made the mistake of asking me if he could ride my YZ426F.  This meant that I would ride his new DR400Z.  unfortunately, I had a little spill.  This was caused, of course, by the differences in the handling between the YZ426F and the DR400Z.  His Suzuki now looks like a true dirt bike (this time Amourall will not renew it to show room condition).  Sorry, Steve.  

After the drive down, it all starts with the morning cup of coffee............

Tom take's to the road in style.

As we warmed up, Tom upped the anti, by inducing a little more speed!


Tom then attempts to take the old guy riding the YZ426F....... 

Sorry Tom.......

 


 

Time for a little fuel break

 


 

Loving the new bike, Baja and my friends

 


Remember the part about Steve wanting to ride the YZ426.  As it turned out the joke was on me.

I biffed it on the damn DR400Z.  You have to be careful....... It could kill you! After five minutes of catching my breath and checking for injuries, I know what is coming!

 

While checking for fractures, Steve is giving me the same lecture which Survivor show Sue gave Kelly on the last episode. 

 Based on the fact that I was still stunned, I did not know if I should apologize for the mishap, or ask him for his insurance policy number.  I will consult an attorney before jumping to any immediate decision.................

Sorry, Steve............


 

Here it is.......   

Tom recovering from another water hazard mishap.

He stated that it was extremely deep.

I will let you be the judge!

 

 


After Steve was demoralized by being beaten on the flat track by a old technology air cooled Honda 400..................................

He resorted to walking his DR400Z for the balance of the ride..........

 


We loaded up the "Chevy" and headed back to Tecate for.............

..............A final taco in Mexico

In closing, we had a great time.  We enjoyed riding more than 300 miles of Baja's trails and dirt roads.  

It is time to start planning the next ride.  Got to go now.  Heading to the optometrist to have my eye glass frames straightened............

Note to Attorney:

Here is the picture of my upper leg, which you requested during this mornings telephone conversation.....
