    matt. can i have some of your gas?

    those new to dv and this rally, the park is huge. for all the years we have been coming here, our biggest limitation is fuel and daylight.

    once the sun goes down and your out of ⛽️. ....lol

    ^ What he said. A short day in Death Valley is 100 miles. I won't ride out there unless I have 150 miles of range and that's bare minimum. I calculate I have about 175-185 range on my DR350 plus Rotopax and that still makes me nervous ;)

    I'd love to go. I live in SF though, do other folks have long rides to Death Valley?

    We've had riders from the South of France before. It's worth it!

    That is quite a bit farther than SF...

    Count me in for sure. I'm on a 250, so I'll be buzzing over at 65mph :D

    In. Dibs. Where do I sign up? How much is it? Is there WiFi?
    First ride: Pre NooBs overnite gathering @ Saline Springs. Easy ride for all levels, big bikes, small bikes, its a pretty decent dirt road all the way. This will be the nite immediately before the official start of NooBs. No need to sign up. Meet @ my trailer @ 11am the day before NooBs and we go SPENDING the nite @ Saline Springs. The more the merrier. I will be bring a bottle of Single Malt to start things off just in case its cold...and its always cold.

    Is this suitable for bigger bikes like an F800GSA?

    jeff. this rally is for everyone. any bike, all skill levels, not gender or age specific. death valley has it all, from easy to super difficult. thing i discourage is riding over their heads.

    most people had a great time and it becomes addictive we keep coming back every year. the camaraderie and riding are awesome.

    @NSFW :raabia Thank you for putting this on each year. Nothing better than riding and hanging out with a couple hundred FF's.... and I walk around with cash. Harrumph! [​IMG]

    My Buddy Henry has been on me fore years about this.. so I'm in.. The only hitch is finding a bike... Any good ideas for rentals?? I will likely be flying in out of South Florida, either LA or Vegas.

    think you just put yourself out of contention for the farthest distance travelled to the event.

    i can't recall, last year we have a gentleman on a s10 from quebec. hope he chimes in.
