Are there any rides planned that don't go into Death Valley National Park? Looks like it's closed due to the government shutdown along with all the other National Parks.

Hopefully it will be open during the rally. If not, maybe the dirt rides could still happen.

I'm hoping to come to Gold Point, which will be my first adventure bike event, especially since it's only 105 miles from my house.

PreRun

With the recent roads being closed in Death Valley from the severe weather a month back a few of us are headed up this weekend to prerun the area to ensure we have some good rides!

Don't worry we will have routes for all levels.


More to come after this weekend.

KLR CRISIS (CRIE-SEES with suthern accent) 24 hours before FL departure to business meeting in GA then west (and house sitter coming).....resolved

Loaded bike and found kickstand TOO LONG, the bike sank. It was explained to me this bike and DR650's are sprung stock for a 150 pound rider on a long travel suspension, and loaded to the hilt its not steady when parked. i don't have time to get resprung or REAL rear shock

Once out of deer in high beam mind mode, I scratched my head and had to pause and think.

hmmm... this stand has extra length hehe


Look what I found - I haven't used this dewalt since I demo'd my bathroom for remodeling.


I cut and GEEZ I find the kickstand tube is hollow wtf? I need a temp "foot" for the trip. An old " MX handguard" mount (in billet!) is in th spares bin...this is good news


Just in case, I'm taking the plate I use on my sportbikes when I park on soft FL hot asphalt


Let's roll westward.............

That is awesome

150lb rider? Really?! You think the ones built for export would at least be modified for us "more substantial" western riders.

Just got home from the pre run.....

Arrived Saturday morning, met up with three other riders who showed Friday night and we rode a 168 mile loop.

today we split in two groups and a 190 mile loop to Tonapah and the Bishop loop through the White Mountains...


Tom & his son TJ ran the Bishop loop today while Brian, John and I ran a Tonapah loop.


Things were looking good!


The 168 mile loop on Saturday will remain unnamed....but I heard Death Valley was full of visitors. Someone saw street bikes, dual sports, Adventure bikes, three separate caravans of Jeep & Range Rovers and four minivans with foreign tourist.


Everyone please make sure you RSVP your meals with Herb, there are no grocery stores for miles....so he buys for everyone's rsvp'd meals a week prior.

There are still RV spots available, one cabin, one rustic cabin, and yes plenty of room around for tents.

Thinking Saturday... Depending on how many riders show we may do one each day.. Much easier to run three separate runs a day with less riders and do all three everyday
