    We'll either be riding to Palmdale from the Orleans on Thursday, or driving the truck if we can find a way to get it shuttled back to LV.

    If we end up riding, dirt instead of the freeway would be nice, at least part of the way. We will need to fuel up part way. I'm on a 690 with only a stock tank, so not much range.

    We're open to options.

    Yes, already posted there. No takers yet. I think action will pick up as the date gets closer.

    Offer up "Spa package weekend in Las Vegas for moving truck" and you might get a few responses.

    next Sunday Lost Coyotes Dual Sport ride out of Lancaster.

    check the D37 forum. it's in upcoming rides.

    I'm doing it.

    it's a "Roll Chart Only" ride.

    Hey Todd,

    I'm likely in for this weekend, assuming I get some stuff in the mail and bolt it to the bike.

    I'm seriously thinking about the Lost Coyote thing, looks like a good tune for LAB2V.

    200-250 per day.
    gas roughly every 70 miles.

    There's plenty of opportunities to skip parts of the course by hitting the asphalt, too.
    The roll chart clearly notes time limits at certain resets.
    For example. "If later than 2pm, hit highway to section 16".

    There's a couple of rocky sand washes that I've had my fill of. :1drink
