    Admins; please move this thread if the general forum is not the right place for it.

    Hello, Im Adam aka "Animal". I am the leader of Front Range Dual Sport Riders motorcycle group out of Denver Co. We are currently planning our annual Baja trip for next spring. We have hosted this trip for several years now, but so far have primaily stayed on hwy 1/pavement. This year we are looking to ride more dirt roads. Due to the remote areas of Baja I am wanting to have a chase vehical accompany us. I dont want to use my pickup as it would be too slow and is supposed to be a work truck! I dont own a Side by Side, nor have I been able to find one in our group. I am a fairly skilled rider but some of our group is not and the piece of mind a chase brings is worth it.

    Does anyone in the side by side comunity know of a place in Baja that rents UTVs and would allow a 2 week rental? I have looked and in the states they are all day rentals and in mexico they all seam to be guided tours.

    Alternatively, would someone that owns one be up for following a bunch of top heavy riders thru the mexican desert in exchange for covering your accomodations?!

    We will be taking 2 weeks March 8th thru the 24th and travling all the way to cabo and back. The pace will be more relaxed with emphasis on tacos y cervaza and taking in the sites and culture.

    Thank you

    For what you are going to spend to rent a SXS for two weeks you might just consider hiring a tour company like Baja Bound or others. Here is a "what if" for you. You rent a SXS and it blows a belt or worse and now you have a dead chase vehicle with only dirt bikes to help retrieve it. Now your chase vehicle needs a chase vehicle!

    We can provide both. I would just have chase truck with experienced crew.

    We tend to over prepare, but a fun trip in baja can quickly go bad. You are long way from help in many locations.
