Thumb But wait, there's more... FOUR More !

Rob Watt, owner of TrailMaster Adventure Gear in Monument, CO (http://trailmasteradventures.com) has come through again with:

FOUR Changing Mats!



The Changing Mat is a lightweight folding mat that will keep your wheel out of the dirt when changing a flat. The pocket it packs into becomes a temporary storage place to keep all the small parts, like your axle nut, value stem or tools when doing a tire change. It will keep your socks clean when changing out of your riding gear. It serves as a door mat when getting in and out of your tent. Use it for a food prep station when you don't have a picnic Mat. Only your imagination will limit the many ways you can use The Changing Mat.

this is one practical product. a few times we were on the desert and had a flat, wish we had this. the pesty fine sand will get to your wheel bearings. think of mud too.

no, never thought of it for being a handy tent mat. great idea for sure. can be used to prop my sleeping bag pillow too.

for being inexpensive and with unlimited use.

thank you again bill.

waiting list

overnight, i received 3 payments.

[SIZE="4"]THE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!.....

your participation especially if you're a noobie is great, but we have to focus on the planning.

every time someone pays with no information - that eats up my time and wearing us out. i know you PPs don't want to read, neither we.

PLEASE READ PAGE 1...

only then you don't find the answer - SEND ME A PM (i still have 134 unread PMs).

EDITED: there are 10 spots on the waiting list. paypal will put you on the list + $20 DONATION TO RIDER DOWN FOUNDATION

thanks for all the support gs.

good place to practice is indian ranch road to ballarat.

or if you're riding in from trona, make a right to ballarat and go north via indian ranch road. you get your dose of dirt on your way to the campground.

people asking me if i will lead a group ride. no specific plan yet since i have to be back at the campground before 5pm to prep dinner.

I'm sure it can be arranged.

Closer to the event I'll go over some maps with Joel and my buddy's suggestions and plot a route.

Noob question: Tires for DV

This trip will be my first time to DV. I have Continental TKC 80's on my BMW 650 XC. Will those be fine for this trip? I recently bought the bike used and these were on it.

Thanks!

Those will be fine. Just make sure they have enough miles left in them before you leave. All of the riding in Death Valley is pretty rough on tires.

I don't often have the pleasure of riding with many people that bust into celebration when they crash


I need to find the video that Justin took that Herrhelmet posted for me
where we can here you screaming victoriously about making it to the top
too bad your bike popped into neutral and you fell over
its on my home computer and I have not been home all month and will be gone Feb also

can't wait til March



EDIT: found it

Joel,

You probably don't need it but just in case I have a large Coleman propane stove. It's a three burner guide series with two 10,000 btu burners and one 15,000.

I'm pretty set on driving in now. If I don't finish(or start ) in time a generous member has offered his.

geoff....we may need the 3 burner stove, will let you know in a few days.

big favor - lots of people are riding in and good chance many of them will not be able to bring a camp chair. if you're trucking, please bring an extra chair or two to share. thanks.
