just over 3 months away!!!


do you have your hotels reserved in Barstow and the Orleans in Las Vegas?

Ramada in Barstow is already full. Quality Inn across the street is nice!


and this year they are limiting 500 riders. so it will sell out this year.

Same for me. The husky is perfect for this type of ride.

On a 610, it's a couple of long days.

On a KLR, it's The Test Of All Tests!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111

Heading up to Red Rock at the end of Day 2 one year, a guy on a smaller bike (who was coming back down Lovell Canyon towards the highway) flagged me down and said "You better turn around, you'll never get that thing over the hill!".
I told him maybe I'd get lucky and make it over on a KLR for the 7th time...

That was a few years ago, this time will make it my 13th LA-B-V. Only missed one because it fell on my 40th birthday, and I was miserable the whole time. Should have went that year too...

You guys are definetly tweaking my interst in this ride. I'm about 90% it's a go for me. Just gotta figure the costs and logistics from CT. My first instict is to ride the 990 out and back because, as my buddy Adam always says. " You ain't no Trailer Queen , is ya?" But the 500 EXC would probably be more fun. My questions are:

Is the ADV ride a real challenge or is it just a dirt road/ tar road sightseeing tour? Can an experienced rider on a 990 do the DS ride? I have run New England Enduros and Hare Scrambles for years and am a very capable "B" Rider. I have only run one other National DS ride in Alabama and rode the ADV ride the first day bored, the next day rode the DS ride and nothing was impassable on the 990, much more of a challenge.

Is this an OK ride to ride alone? I mean 500 guys, seems like somebody is going to come by eventually.

Looking forward to coming out West and riding with you guys

It sounds like you can handle it. Keep in mind that compared to the east coast, our 10+ mile stretches of sand, whoops, sandy whoops, gravel washes, and mountainside climbs are not what you're used to.

You'll have more fun on the 500 EXC, plus it will be a bit warmer in the truck when you have to come over the mountains or run into 2000 miles of rain.
