CSC Announces Baja Adventure Tour
Multi-Day Ride Through Baja Augments CSC Approach for Reaching New Riders
"We've been providing the Baja tours since we introduced the RX3 in 2015," said Steve Seidner, CSC Motorcycles President and Chief Executive Officer. "It started as a casual mention on our blog when we said that we would be taking our RX3s through Baja when they arrived in the US. The subsequent overwhelming response and interest to our plans surprised us. The Baja trips are now a key part of our marketing strategy. We actually have people buy the RX3 motorcycle specifically so they can ride Baja with us. It's brought new people and younger people into motorcycling, and that's a good thing."
The CSC Baja tours cover 2000 miles during the course of an 8-day adventure ride. The tour follows Baja's Transpeninsular Highway all the way to Loreto, with stops in Baja's Valle de los Cirios, Scammon's Lagoon, San Ignacio, Sierra San Francisco, Santa Rosalia, Mulege, Bahia Concepcion, and Loreto. Highlights include visits to the 300-year working missions in San Ignacio, Mulege, and Loreto, whale watching in Scammon's Lagoon, an off-road excursion to the ancient cave paintings in the Sierra San Francisco Mountains, the all-steel Gustav Eiffel Church in Santa Rosalia, and authentic Baja epicurean delights during the entire journey.
"We don't charge anything for this tour," said Joe Berk, CSC's ride organizer. "Participants have to pay their own expenses directly as they are incurred, but there's no tour fee or anything like that. We're not in the motorcycle touring business. We are in the business of introducing new and not-so-new riders to affordable adventure motorcycling. For the ride participants, it works out to something under a hundred bucks a day for fuel, food, and hotel expenses. We think it's a hell of deal, and we don't know any other importer who's doing anything like this. It's a win-win for us and for the folks who buy CSC motorcycles."
Berk, an experienced Baja rider, recently published Moto Baja! The book describes his experiences touring Baja on a variety of motorcycles. Moto Baja! Is currently available directly from CSC Motorcycles or from Amazon.com.
The RX3 is a 250cc fully-equipped adventure touring motorcycle. Its $3895 price includes lockable panniers and topcase, skid plate, guards, windshield, liquid cooling, a 4-valve/4-stroke/
