    Just found out about this event and would like to go but... Friday have the forks off for a spring upgrade and service. Not sure if I can make it but a friend, Zipper, might be coming from Quartzsite.

    Looks like a great event.

    Hoping to wrap up a crazy work week and make it to Gold Point.

    I'll be driving in from Sacramento, arriving Late thursday, camping, if all goes to plan.

    I'm a conservative rider on a TE510.

    Hope I can tag along with some of y'all on some of the rides, I've never really ridden that area before, save for once to White Mountain/Bristlecone forest...and to the Saline Valley hippie hot springs years ago on the Guzzi.

    Anyone else from Sacramento/SF going?

    Cheers

    Where is the nearest gasoline?

    If I can make it I will be coming from Sacramento but will get there sometime Saturday. I have a Super Tenere without a skidplate so my riding will be limited.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like from the north it is Tenopah.

    I'm packing up now...see yall later tonight. I'll be solo, driving a Honda Ridgeline.

    Save a camping spot for me.

    Cheers

    Quick note

    Just got in 11pm last night after collecting the Husky on that rocky road outside of Saline Hot Springs.

    Had a long drive from Gold Point via Oriental wash, Death Valley Road, Saline Valley north to south back to lone pine, up 395/tahoe and back home. Thanks for the great directions.

    Wanted to thank Jeff/Martha JB Kwik man (forgot name..sorry) for help and attempts to fix the stator cover. In the end, it was a better decision to abandon and split.

    Also...I may have found Mike Meyers BMW case..anyone know how to contact him...it was on Saline Valley Road near 190. It is a newer BMW side case, damaged, with a couple aquafina water bottles nearby. I have it in Sacramento.

    More later..really enjoyed this trip and meeting you all.

    Cheers
