Any weather problems up there? Mostly an XR's crew, odd blue and orange bike.
Anything else we need to see? Surprise Canyon? Staying at Furnace Creek.
Your biggest challenge will be fuel range. Keep an eye on the weather, as the elevation changes will take you from hot to cold and rain to snow/ice.
