    Was in DV last month and had a great time riding many of the dual sport routes.

    Finally pulled together some of my video of Titus Canyon. It is a very easy ride, NPS keeps it graded and in great shape. Only 27 miles, it goes from just West of Rhyolite (3450 ft) over Red Pass (5287 ft), down into the old mining town of Leadfield (3840 ft) and then on through Titus Canyon where it connects with the road to Scotty’s Castle (186 ft).

    MAP HERE

    It is a one-way road and thus you can just cruise along without worrying about some chowderhead doing a four wheel drift coming at you on every corner.

    Click the HD icon at the bottom if it is taking too long to load. It will load quicker in non-HD if you have a slow connection.

    Death Valley is such a great place to ride. I always enjoy seeing everyones stuff, so I&#8217;ll just throw this on the pile.

    And yes, I am old and slow ... thanks for noticing.

    Straight up music, with a little Janis type voice. Buy her music, it's good stuff.

    I think this is the easiest, best ride in DV. Funny how we all stop at the same places for pictures! :thumb:thumb
