Most off-road racers add wheels as they add years, but noted Baja competitor Pete Springer, Oceanside, reversed that trend. Pete dropped two wheels as he moved from his Baja-winning four-wheelers to motorcycles after ending his official racing career. Pete has logged hundreds of thousands of miles on bikes, on and off-road, x-country and locally… on his adventure travels. While he’s not officially racing, I’ve had the honor of riding with Pete a few times and can bear testimony that he prefers to scoot along at what cannot be accurately described as a leisurely pace.
Most recently Pete, and his riding pals Don and Dan Goldston and Mike Daugherty, tackled Baja on dual sport bikes for 1800 of dirt, great scenery, a bit of history, and an abundance of camaraderie.
