Default Baja

I was sitting here watching a National Geographic show about the 1000. A pair of the front runners entered a right hand turn one of them slide into a early FC that was sitting on the side of the road. Did it belong to anyone here?

I saw that video too. Sorta cool seeing a Bird there let alone getting broad sided. It looked like the apex of a highspeed RH turn was not the place to park an RV though! I was very fortunate in my motocross days to have raced the Baja 1000 in 1981. We finished 8th in our class on a heavily modified Yamaha YZ465. That was pretty good (8th) considering our goal was just to finish! The bike was geared for a top speed of 105 MPH. My time on the bike was from about 10:30 at night until somewhere around 5 in the AM. You were allowed up to 3 drivers/riders per vehicle then. What an adventure to say the least!!
