Hello from Kerstin and Sascha

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

My wife and I are on a tour from Anchorage, Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina. At the moment we are in Big Bear lake, waiting for spare parts and going direction Escondido tomorrow. After 9000 miles we have to work a bit on our bikes and will do that in Escondido:

Sascha: Honda Africa twin, rd07, 1993, 140.000 miles

Kerstin: Honda Transalp, pd10, 1998, 50.000 miles

After Escondido we will head to Baja California and further SOUTH from there we take the ferry to the main land and continue south all the way to Ushuaia.

We got a small blog for friends and family at home in some kind of English ;) but due to the rules here (if I understood them correctly) I don't post it. 

We are looking forward receiving valuable tips from the experts here about Baja and further South...

In exchange we can offer tips about various European destinations and from our foregoing destinations in Australia, Newzealand, Oceania and southeast Asia....

Save riding everyone!

Cheers Sascha and Kerstin

How cool! Mrs. Riot will be jealous (I am too!).

Were you both riders before you got married?

Looks like a great trip!  I just rode up to Anchorage from San Diego and am wandering my way back.  I’m interested in riding south next, so looking forward to your reports.

Thank you for all the kind words and the warm welcome here! Much appreciated. the blog address is my alias... ;)

 

Just a quick update, we have been nearly constantly in a garage and working on the bikes, had some sleep in-between. NO time for going out or even have more than one beer ;( but now the bikes look good again, I hope. tomorrow one more day and we should be set up for Baja and beyond. The test ride we still have to do but it looks promising.

We plan in going to San Diego on Sunday, stay there till Monday and cross into Mexico, Baja going South. Depense if we find a place to stay for a night or two,... still working on that...

 

We will keep you updated... Have to run now cause we got another thing scheduled for 6 o´clock and I am looking like fallen into an river full of oil... dont know if I ever wll be clean again ;) but who cares...

 

Thank you once again for the super welcome here!

 

Cheers Kerstin and Sascha

Have a safe trip south. Be careful of the heat in Baja and have plenty of water. Ride smart . Stop and smell the roses.

We are still working on our bikes today but looking forward to finish everything. Actually we would love to meet all of you… sharing experiences and getting tips and hints for the Baja and Mexico. The only thing is we do not want to shortchange our current host more than necessary. We stayed already 4 nights with him used his workshop and know the true promise of all his help and hospitality. So the plan is to get all the bike things done today and leaving this place tomorrow. If we can find any other place to stay (as close as possible to the border,Tecate) we are happy to stay a day or two longer to meet, exchange, having a beer… and get maybe a few other things sorted. So if anybody knows a place, has a place… let us know ;)

Kerstin and Sascha are staying with me for a night or 2, we'll probably head to Ocean Beach later today, and I'm going to show them around a bit. If anyone wants to meet us for a beer in OB, let us know. I'll post up a time later.

My friends Kersten and Sascha are heading south to Baja tomorrow.

Anyone have tracks for the easy way into Mike's Sky Ranch ?

Also, any other good, easy tracks heading south in Baja in the dirt, not too much sand ?

They are on fully loaded oldwr Africa Twin and a Transalp.

Thanks in advance.
