You know the best laid plans of mice & Men on Yamaha's
You might want to follow my tracks along the River Rd. to Mojave Road when you leave Laughlin......you'll be amazed how low the river is in the morning........nice/quiet ride
I know you're not too interested in side trips but the Lava Tubes are just a few miles north of Mojave Rd as you approach Kelbaker.......my DSM track set includes a short/optional track for that side trip........a worthwhile stop on the way over to Barstow, or the way back from Barstow, if you've never seen'em before........
Likewise, on the way back you might want to consider diverting from Mojave Rd. once you reach Ft. Piute and take the track I loaded that'll guide you over Christmas Tree pass and back down to 163/Laughlin.....something different (and easy dirt after a long day).....
Have fun.....I'm jealous!
