Jon Baker departed this morning with much excitement as he begins his three week motorcycle adventure of the Great Continental Divide (GCD).
Jon is riding with GPSKevin Adventures for 13 days, 2700 miles of dirt from Mexico to Canada. Today Jon left his home in Fair Oaks, CA. He will be joined by part of the team as they head for California’s beautiful mountain passes before turning south. Jon plans to complete 400 miles today stopping near San Bernardino to visit his old pal James Ball this evening. Tomorrow he heads on to New Mexico toward the start point for the GCD journey. Jon is on his KTM 1190 looking to increase his skills for maneuvering this large beast on rough terrain along this 2700 mile dirt journey. He is packed with soft luggage and minimal gear to keep light and nimble for the most difficult parts of the off-road trails.
Stay tuned as we share photos, video, and stories from his daily adventure.
