    Do you guys really think that's smart posting videos of illegal off road activity? Unless I'm mistaken there is not one legal dune area you can ride in DV.

    Hard to see in the video but that sure looks like Ibex Dunes. Of course it's not. you must be outside the park.....

    Sure thing! And the pictures of guys boozing it up on the trail is colored water. The rifle being pointed near the campfire is a toy gun.

    Big Dune is on the way to Beatty, beyond the NP boudary and 100% legal to ride.

    And road sodas are OK too, as long as you aren't DUI or trashing the place, no?

    Chill out, man. :jose

    Dunes are in Nevady, That looks like a broomstick rifle, and I only drink Coconut water.

    Might have been a broomstick. Hard to see in the pic. I should not base this ride as rides in the past where guys were clearly riding illegal shit. Looks like the kids have cleaned up their act.

    You probably shouldn't falsely accuse people and not apologize.

    Good boy!! You know how to use google. Of course no one has real waypoints posted up on the actual GPS device pics. Top speeds were impressive though. 90-100+mph on a dirt bike is wild.

    Regardless of what I think, you guys had a great time so that's what counts. I'll be there in a few weeks exploring some more of the mellow stuff.

    hey ballisticchris, why do you come to a thread regarding a rally you did not attend and SHIT ALL OVER IT.

    go away.

    don't police us. no one rode anything illegal. Nevada is open riding.

    goodbye.

    Can I take us back to a happy place? Jeez, all this BS makes me not want to post on ADV any longer- people just get their panties in a bunch too much these days. I mean Obama is a lame duck, so we don't all have to be so pissed off any longer do we? :hide Yes that was a joke, so anyone that got offended shouldn't have.

    Anyway, some fun pics:

    Thursday, looking to head out with hooligan and Chris. Turns out hooligan's junk is just that so he stayed home and ate crumpets and drank tea.

    [​IMG]

    So in true Top Gear fashion, we leave his silly butt and go hit Echo.

    [​IMG]

    I dunno where we're going, you brought the map!

    [​IMG]

    Well the map obviously didn't help, as we couldn't even keep going in a straight line too well.

    [​IMG]

    Stupid little XRs are supposed to be light!

    [​IMG]

    Ah, lose the weight of that silly helmet and the bike tracks and runs just fine.

    [​IMG]

    Back on track, let's check out the condition of the steps.

    [​IMG]

    Hmm, maybe they are a bit steeper than we remembered...

    [​IMG]

    Well, let's heave this tank up there!

    [​IMG]

    OK, now let's git r dun for that second one!

    [​IMG]

    I think I can I think I can...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Got it!

    [​IMG]

    Back to it.

    [​IMG]

    Hey, let's do some geocaching!

    [​IMG]

    Bummer, some jerkweed redneck stole the cache, so this was all we got.

    [​IMG]

    Oh well, some cool stuff otherwise like a cabin with a view.

    [​IMG]

    Right next to your own mine (this is where the cache was supposed to be).

    [​IMG]

    Nice place to stop either way.

    [​IMG]

    On to Titus.

    [​IMG]

    OK, enough of my Snickers and Skittles lunch, let's rock.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Got out just in time for this:

    [​IMG]

    And then actually had to use the sun to get back to camp (sadly, the only time I used the big nasty light all weekend).

    Great write up Brice. Had a fun time riding around and messing off in the desert. Good pictures too. Since I'm so antisocial I feel like a celebrity with all those pics of me.
