You can camp out there and not see anyone for several hundred miles...........

Great pic. Where is this?

At the end of that road is one of the best campsites ever.........but I won't say where it is on the interwebz. Best to find it yourself.

Looks like a killer trip!

P.S. If you're a professional dirtbag why aren't you riding a Harley?

Had a rough weekend. The plan was to ride out to wendover via lucin, all was good until we tried to cross the flats just before wendover. The road looked dry and even had sections where sand was blowing across the road. Obviously there were sections of wet too. But overrall it didnt go as planned and we spent the night trying to dig ourselevs out of the mess I got us into. 2 burnt clutches, 2 broken low front fenders and mud that was like playdough.

We were so stuck and with smoked clutches we had to call the wife to bring a trailer to wendover and retrive us. Problem was she couldn't get the truck down to us so we were on our own to get us out of the predicament. We had one bike with a good clutch so I swapped 2 good plates into the other 2 bad bikes and that allowed us to gimp out.

In one of the many low speed wrecks my son broke his top box, here it is being burned in hopes of making a black smoke signal fire for the wife to see. FYI innertubes make far more smoke
