Friend of the shop Keith took the plunge & raced the Baja 1000 on his heavily modified Honda CRF450X - as a solo rider, no less! Dave & Lee went along to be the support/pit crew for Keith. He made it 850 miles, but dehydration & fatigue bit him hard... Now there's talk of a return trip with Dave as a rider. That'd be fun!
