    Just looking at diesel prices down there. Beatty is $3.699 and Bishop $3.839. But I expect Panamint is significantly higher. Lone Pine, 40 miles away is $4.379. Tonopah is the same as Bishop.

    Looks like I'm obligated by work to be back by Friday, March 1 so my travel plans are in flux.

    Got out for a short ride today, first one (on the road) since I froze my nuts off going to St. Anthony in November. The sunshine was great and it felt good to get out!:clap

    It's Idaho so I figure it's probably a simple thing. I'm planning to take Sam's advice and get a smaller bike this spring. I'm leaning toward plating a dirt bike so it's de-smogged and fuel mapped how I want out of the box. Then plug in a simple SICASS kit for the street legal bits. Anything to be aware of with the DMV?

    Hey Silverspurs, I will have already returned by that time, as We are heading down end of Feb and returning 1 March. Be advised that there is a big bike event happening down there during that time:

    ...so you should have plenty of company.

    I just love seeing the snow melt a little bit every day! I dug out the TW and the ct90 today to shake out the cobwebs and charge up the batteries. I also layed claim to a new to me bottom end for my KLR, as my crank bearings are toast. Right now it looks like this...

    When its all said and done it'll have a 9000 mile bottom end and a 688. Also hoping to rebuild the forks and install a set of intiminators. Throw in new tires and chain and sprockets and I'll be ready for spring !

    it's your trip down there that got me thinking about going...

    I didn't know about the rally... "NOOB RALLY"!!:huh... hmmm describes me pretty well [SIZE=4]I guess!!:rofl:rofl[SIZE=4]I was thinking of staying[SIZE=4] at Panamint Sprin[SIZE=4]gs, but now I think I'll stay cle[SIZE=4]ar of there... a[SIZE=4]nd c[SIZE=4]amp[SIZE=4] somewhere else... [/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE]don't like crowds much :puke1

    [SIZE=4]I'll be wa[SIZE=4]iting to read your rid[SIZE=4]e r[SIZE=4]eport so I can plan my t[SIZE=4]rip... t[SIZE=4]hanks![/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE]

    Thanks man! I sold the KLR over the weekend and have wanted a bigger adventure style bike for awhile. Besides that one ride we did last year, and a few other times, I mainly ride with guys on gsa's and 990's. We'll have to go ride again sometime so I can test the tigers abilities off-road!
