After nearly six months of traveling across and down and around the Americas, it was time to head home to Miami Beach, Florida on my KTM 1290 Super Adventure. The journey would be in two parts. My bike would travel first via Cargo, which I detailed the process with Dakar Motos from Buenos Aires in my previous post.
The United States is a country of 50 states covering a vast swath of North America, with Alaska in the northwest and Hawaii extending the nation’s presence into the Pacific Ocean. Major Atlantic Coast cities are New York, a global finance and culture center, and capital Washington, DC.
Ride Day 10: Long Beach, California to El Bajio, Baja California, Mexico (Border Crossing) by Motorbike
What a day for my travels, finally I cross into Baja, California, on my way to El Bajio, Mexico! I could not sleep the night before, as I was pretty excited and a little nervous at the same time. New country, new experiences and my first border crossing.
So, finally, I am on my last day across America and heading to Long Beach, California. I crossed through the Mojave Desert and touched on Route 66 but mainly stayed around Route 40, which was a fantastic road.
After spending just one night in nights in Tucson, Arizona, I decided to do a detour and head on up to The Grand Canyon and then see how far I could get towards California and crash the night somewhere close to the state line.
After spending two nights in El Paso, Texas, I decided to head to Tucson, Arizona and take a short detour into Tombstone, Arizona. Rever crashed, so part of the trip is missing from the Rever Map.
After spending the morning taking snaps as the sun rose at The Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, I decided the long ride of over 900 kilometers was to get to El Paso in Texas.
After spending just one night ‘relaxing’ in Galveston in a motel that one can only describe as ‘seedy’ I decided to head to San Antonio where I would spend only one night and taking in a few sights, looking back I should have spent a couple of nights here, it was quite a pretty place.
After spending a few nights relaxing and taking in New Orleans, Louisiana I then headed across the border to Galveston, Texas. This was a really cool ride through wetlands
My third day of riding took me from Laguna Beach, Florida to New Orleans, Louisiana where I was to spend a few nights to get things together and post a few boxes of gear that was no longer necessary back to my home.
My second day of riding took me from Tarpon Springs Florida to laguna beach, Florida and over 346 miles (557 kilometres) and a long 9 hour riding day. Still, the camera was not fixed (I hadn’t had a chance to see footage yet) and still I had a huge load on my bike.
