by Curtis Guise on August 10, 2012

The Baja 50th Anniversary “Warm up Celebration” was held August 4th 2012 in Mission Viejo, CA. This event was a celebration of the promotional ride that Dave Ekins and Bill Robertson Jr. did 50 years ago from Tijuana to La Paz to test the durability of the new Honda CL72 250cc Scramblers. This ride created the famous Baja 1000 that has become one of the most recognized off road racing events in the world.
