INVITATION & RESERVATION

ANNUAL BAJA NORTE SAN FELIPE MOTOMOCHILA TRAIL ADVENTURE

Sponsored by the Utah Trail Machine Association

February 18-24, 2017

Revised 24 March 2016

 

 

As an experienced rider you are invited to participate in an adventure in old Mexico.  There will be both off-road motorcycle and SxS groups.  Travel over 800 miles in six days on both dirt and paved roads.  Many trails follow historic SCORE Baja race routes crisscrossing Baja from the Sea of Cortez to the Pacific Ocean.  Riders are divided into convenient and manageable groups allowing for exploring and sight-seeing.  All machines should be able to maintain 55-60 mph sustained speed on asphalt during transitioning.  Travel is without any planned chase vehicle.  Figure on expenses from $650 to $900 depending on needs and wants.

 

Baja is bike-packing country–thus the name ‘MOTOMOCHILA.’ After being tested by “The Baja Gods,”   Mexico creates a magical spell in one’s soul—a trail adventure to be cherished forever.

 

Step One – MAKE RESERVATION:

Send your (1) name, (2) address, (3) cellphone, (4) e-mail, (5) bike or SxS you plan on riding, (6) tee-shirt size (S-3XL), and (7) group you will be riding with if known.

 

Step Two – CONFIRM RESERVATION:

To confirm reservations on the trail and commit to the ride, send a non-refundable $75 deposit to Ride Coordinator.  Your deposit includes UTMA membership dues, souvenir t-shirt, security services, plus other expenses.

 

You must be a current member of UTMA in order to participate–your reservation includes membership dues.  If you are already a current member /or/ one current membership per family same household is sufficient the deposit is $50.
