    G,

    Those pictures are from last years March noob ride in DV. We planned to do 250 miles of dirt from Panamint to Saline to Steel Pass to Eureka Valley to Hunter Mountain Rd to Lippencott to Saline Valley then back to Panamint. I brought the extra gas for a buddy riding a 1200GS but when his non spoked rims got bent to shit on Steel Pass, we threw in an inner tube and rode back the way we came.

    I was a little worried that the GSA wouldn't make it all the way around seeing how mpg's goes down when your slogging away in first gear climbing a jeep trail in gravel and sand.

    If you're interested, we'll be in DV again this Jan and March... here's the links.

    First impressions are that I've made a good choice, very confidence inspiring at 5 celcius on wet roads, heated grips are good! Weather protection is a new experience for me and although not quite a supermoto the handling is superb, very quick to turn in and the engine, well that's kind of why I bought one.

    The plate is there, buried under the road grim, I'm sure.

    Atigun Pass is a rite of passage for adventure riders. Congrats for making it there and back safely.:clap :clap :clap

    Sure enough, the plate is there. There are trucks constantly spraying the Dalton Highway with brine (I think it's a calcium chloride or magnesium chloride solution). It improves compaction and keeps the dust down, but it's nasty and slick when wet. And it's not the easiest grime to wash off the bike.

    I was very fortunate to have excellent weather and the ride was pretty straight forward.
