There is a really cool short dirt ride on the way to Dantes View (on the right on the way out), with some great landscapes.



I am not sure what its called, but it sure is a nice ride.

Nice little dirt bike, right?

Yeah, we were emailing each other last night about this and our plans for a late-March trip; and figured "Hey we can do both". So I think Bill is in and Pablo is also going to try to make it. I think Willem was going to do Barstow to Vegas in November.

You mean it's not ALLLLLLL knarly?

Phew. That's a relief.

I was looking at some really tough stuff from ZenSlug's youtube files and I thought to myself, "Thank goodness I have to work" . Awesome DV views with a smooth comfort zone down the middle.

Nope.

Even the track to the Racetrack aint that bad, expecially if you have a pair of knobblies. Trust me, if I can ride it, anyone can. That said, I did turn around before the end, as it was getting dark and I had lost a couple of teeth fillings!



That doesnt mean accidents wont happen of course...

As usual, I'm late to jump on the bandwagon, but this noob wants in!

What's your tire of choice for DV?
