I went through on August 17th just as they were installing the new sign. You can't miss it.
If I remember correctly....on that section my VStrom ran out of gas at 209 miles (just after I fell over in a pull off that was soft sand). I put in my gallon can and then ran out at 247 miles. I got a half gallon from a passing BMW and made the gas station at 249 miles.
Moral of story....those BMW guys are not so bad after all.
