It’s about time!

Cycle World Does SurfMoto

Cycle World boys try out a short surfmoto trip during the Baja 500.

I was really happy to open up my Cycle World magazine a couple of weeks ago to see their Baja surfmoto adventure. (Not so keen on the “surf and turf” theme, but whatever.) They headed down to Coyote Cal’s in Eredira and caught a bit of surf at Punta Cabra. They rode and tested new bikes – the poster boy of adventure travel bikes, the BMW R1200GS and it’s closest rival, the KTM 1100 Adventure R. No Carver racks for these boys. The BMW and KTM have enough going on that all they needed were some straps and padding – almost like strapping boards to your SUV. Go read the article here. It looks like SurfMoto is catching on.

    No problems at all with the Carver racks touching down in turns. Then again, I haven’t tried them on my Ducati. Yet.

    Really cool motorcycle. BMW R1200GS is already been tested on extreme condition and driving. Miles of journey is achievable in this motorcycle. Good thing you also carried the surfboard.
