Just give Herb a call or email, we generally give him $10 a night when we tent it and that includes the bathrooms and shower.

May have to see about putting in some leave for this one and coming out :) Looks like I see some Beasts in the group so I take it that a larger bike like a Strom wouldn't have any issue out there?

10 bucks for tent camping sounds like a steal to me

Possibly. If we're setting it up now should be able to arrange it.

This looks awesome. Also read your m2w RR. Definitely IN for this.

Tenting it so what nightly temps to expect?

Where is the nearest fuel? Furnace Creek? I saw a number of bikes carrying extra tanks, rotopax etc. (My range is 170-180)

How's the temps that time of year?

Really thinking about this one, looks like an awesome opportunity to check out DV during the day and relax at night...

Suzuki wife thought this was over T-day week so she's having second thoughts but not me. Looks like great riding.

I'm in

Shooby and I are splitting a cabin.

This looks to be the perfect setup: great food to just sit down and eat after a long day's riding, noob (that's me) to expert riding available all day, a bar, and for those of us that unfortunately have to when they're out of town, free wifi so I can check work emails/vm's.

I'll be a on a Vstrom with stock tires, not knobbies. Same bike I combat commute on daily, which probably saved me over an hour yesterday in summer coastal traffic from Solana Beach to La Jolla.

How many other "beasts" are going to be out there? I"ve only been riding a "real" motorcycle for a year, cmon other noobs, join me out there!

Always wanted to see Death Valley via motorcycle, what a great opportunity.

Shooby, thanks for setting up the accommodations!

Nice! Glad to see another 'Strom out there. Looks to be quite the ride from San Diego, so glad I have a more "roady" type of bike for that part of the trip.

I'll have to break out my Butler maps and scout out some of the "lost roads" for the ride out there. I've always wanted to see some of those, quite a few movies are shot on them (terminator series, etc).
