Gas

I'm trying to figure out how much extra gas I'm going to want to carry. I will be on a 525 EXC with a 3.1 gallon tank. Up here at 6000 plus feet my mileage really varies. I figure with jetting for the lower elevation that is going to change as well. What are you guys with similar bikes planing on for the rides?

Thanks...

Ladies and gents,

I updated the list. I moved everyone who didn't pay from IN LIST to WAIT LIST. Now we have 6 spots open in the IN list. If you are still interested in this Rally please send your payment to JOEL (PaPal instructions are on page 1 post #2).

Just means it needs another person in that spot too, before it's considered full. The #65 is there by your name

Robert,

#65 is yours but like Cathy said, I'll have to assign an other camper to that spot. There are plenty of room for 2-3 tents on each camp spot. If you want someone from the list let me know, if not it will be random.

hi skid, i see on the list a lot of PPs are bringing their small bikes. there are a lot of dirt roads/trails near the campground that are fun and some challenging.

we will need at least 2 volunteers who know the area very well to lead the small bikes. i could ask some people i know.

death valley is huge. to get to the other side, i will not ride my exc or any plated racing bike. if i do, i may need a new top end or a valve adjustment after i return to camp. of course, others have done it and don't mind doing it again. fuel range is another issue, especially those doing the big loop. my favorite route is furnace creek - west side - butte valley - the cabins - mengel - goler - ballarat. that's about 140 miles between gas stations, intermediate skills (may vary, depending on latest condition) and a full day of riding.

150 mile range will get it done...

4 Liter dromedary bag strapped to the back is my method when I need more range

Hypnosavant and myself are #64&65 on the In list. We're listed as CP3 and TR3 when we should both be TC.

There are a couple rides close to PSR that should be moderately challenging.
