I will be breaking with tradition this year and leaving the big BMW at home (insert joke here). Looking forward to riding the course this year on a real dirt bike (insert next joke here).


Hopefully doing the John Gil ride back thru DV

Decided to just call the hotel. Told her what the event was and she hooked me up..whew.

I'll be breaking tradition too (I've only done one LA-B to V) and switching to the 990. The boy is coming home from college for Turkey and he wants to (is going to) ride the Husky 610. Is there a father/son LA-B2V site?

Need a ride

Last year I got to ride the second day using a friends bike. This year he wants to ride the whole thing and my bike is not street legal. Any recommendations on where I can rent/borrow a bike for this ride?

Any recommendations on tires for a fe570 on this ride? I imagine puncture resistance is pretty important

Edit- and do we have to use dot tires?

they don't check, but if you get stopped it's on you.


I have ran Dunlop D606 front and rear on my KTM 525EXC and they work great!

but I also love Maxxis Desert IT rear and Cross IT front.

run Ultra Heavy Duty front tube and Heavy Duty rear tube.

front psi 15-20lbs rear psi 10-15 lbs. (I usually run 17 front 14 rear on LAB2V but I run 10 front 8 rear on my usual Singletrack riding)

Dunno of a site but I'm doing the ride with my 63 year old dad. He hasn't been on a bike in 40+ years but just got a Wr250R a few weeks ago. Been breaking him and his bike in ever since.
