    I’ve heard that most people should use a 3″ tire or larger tire.because a lot of sand terrain. How about actually riding using 2.1″ tire?

      Hi Lee, well if you’ve read the story and watched the video, you can see how it was for me with 2.1″ tyres! I didn’t set out to ride the Baja Divide, but I decided to include some of it in my world tour route. The sections of the BD that I avoided would have been horrible with 2.1″ tyres and my heavy set-up. If you had a very light load and don’t mind pushing and dragging through deeper sand, then you could do the whole BD with any tyre width, but obviously the fatter the better.

    So much fun to re visit Baja trough your wrighting! I ran into “the mullet” in Loreto some weeks later, but he was less talkative. It was a blast meeting you! All the best, Mattijs.

      I’m so glad you liked it, Mattijs! It was great to meet you too and share that random encounter with the mullet! That’s funny you met him again – lucky he didn’t want to fight you! All the best to you and Desi.
