Other do road rides to death valley...there is just so much to see....if you like to ride you will love this trip.

    Reserve your full catered meals for all who are coming....

    Herb serves Breakfast and dinner make sure you let him know what meals you would like when you rsvp. The food is so good it's the only place you will gain weight after riding all day.

    Looks like a great place to ride. How are the roads going into the town for us who would bring a travel trailer?

    excellent....love to check the area out and the northeast portion of dv.
    also, i like the idea of riding to wmrs from the back side.

    jr, i emailed herb (goldpoint) that we are canceling our reservation and instead we will be joining the las vegas riders.


    what is the quickest or best route coming from l.a.?

    i am thinking of the 14N-395N-168 @ 6 hours from my house.


    thanks 3UP for the info about the road condition. i assume that is the 168 and the main road to gold point.
