    That has been the norm but it always depends on how early the tech inspection volunteers are set up.

    like @bigtodd said it all depends on the volunteers when they show up and also, they might get sidetracked with other tasks.
    so be patient. :deal
    we are all volunteering for this and while it's understandable that you want to get out as early as possible, whether you get out at 6:10 or 6:45 or 7:15, you will still have a great ride.
    and to be honest, the tech inspection doesn't take more than two minutes.

    37WANABE "I haven't seen anything about what time tech inspection opens Friday morning, an hour before sign ups open maybe?"



    Dual Sport Referee "About 6 AM. As soon as we get all of the stuff set up. We'll start setting up at 5 AM."

    Sign up Friday night at the Ramada is open till 7 pm but we are usually open much later.

    DAY TWO ONLY: PRE- AND POST-ENTRANTS. Check in at the Ramada Inn beginning at 2:30 p.m. Friday, 11/25, until 7 p.m. and again from 6-7 a.m. on Saturday, 11/26, to receive your second day’s roll chart and GPS download. You will need to have your bike inspected before you sign-up if you are arriving for Day Two only. Ask at the LA-B-to-V sign- up desk for Tech Inspection.

    If you are really late (9pm) come into sign up and ask for someone to do the tech inspection, sign up, show us your wrist band and we will load your GPS. Friday night or Saturday morning.

    Does the B to V ribbon some of the course? I was out riding around Krammer Junction/Yermo/Husky today and saw lot's of ribbon. Curious if that's what it was for.

    Yes they do use ribbon. I ran across some the other day north of Ludlow and off Camp Rock Rd.....pretty sure it's part of Saturdays route.

    I was riding a loop out of the Fremont Peak area today. I had a planned loop of some of my favorites.... The LABV course planners used a very similar route. I ended up riding most of the LABV route from 395 to Barstow. Lot's of ribbon. Fortunately, I got through before the rush. I only saw one LABV rider.

    When I drove through Palmdale this morning, I was a little surprised by how many riders were still in the parking lot at 7:30am.
    When I got back to my truck around 4pm, there were a lot of lost soles looking for directions and/or slabbing it along 395 heading for KJ and Barstow.

    Great weather out there. Have fun and be safe.
