John (Spank) "Semi-Noob" Thursday thru Sunday, all meals, Trucking in my WR250R on small bike trailer, Tent camping.

If we decide to come a day early (on Weds) can you hook up the extra day of tent camping or do we need to contact the campground ourselves?

Thanks,

John.

Was planning on bringing the Te510 but then I read about 40 mile slab runs to get to trail heads and that's just not what the Te is all about.

My other option is to bring the 950se which has a 180 mile range.

Joel - I am #9 and will be there Thurs-Sun and will be eating at the event dinners. Got a room and will be trucking in whatever I ride. Can volunteer to sweep, lend a noobie a hand or?

you have dannyG's dilemma. death valley has everything for all kinds of bikes and sizes. i ride a 640 and that's all i need, though i may bring a small bike to play around. chris, johngil, m1jeep, and many others, including ersin and spafxer on 990s, can go almost anywhere.

since you're trucking, take both. most of the best sights are on the east side of dv. that involves a lot of pavement to get there. there is also a pass you have to get over. if your intention is just dirt riding, take the small bike. there's plenty of them near the campground.

there were xt225, tw200, xrl250, drz400 and more small displacement bikes who came in previous years. they did the farthest route and still had a great time. regardless, it will be fun.
