just an FYI to everyone...

LAB2V is an open route. not on a closed course. there is 2 way traffic on all routes that you will be riding so ride with caution.
this is Thanksgiving weekend and there are a lot of OHVers out in the desert this weekend and 4X4 folks, so keep your eyes peeled.
there is also unmarked paved road crossings as well as unmarked dirt road crossing so please check before you cross.
and this is the desert so there will be washouts that could maybe possibly break a BMW swingarm.


this is your friendly reminder to ride safe.

and have a fucking blast because this is the best dual sport ride in the world!

i decluttered POST #1. so many BB codes


i updated some other things as well.


Beta Motorcycles is the sponsor this year.

the Orleans code is different. book your room there early because it will sell out.


book your room at the Ramada in Barstow because that will sell out if it's not already sold out.


any questions? fell free to post up.

as far as i know, there will be an ADVenture route this year. i'll know more in the next few days/weeks.

but keep in mind, even the Adventure route has a lot of sand. a lot.

so if you are a little unsure about your sand riding skills, i recommend starting your sand training now.

WHEN IN DOUBT, GAS IT OUT! stay on the gas and keep the front light (relatively speaking. i know the 11200GS is not 'light')

there is plenty of areas near L.A. to practice. out by Four Corners (Hwy 58 and Hwy 395 intersection) there is a lot of power line roads that are sandy.
