More than you can see in a long weekend in Death Valley.






Good riding with you Aaron. Thanks for the rally tour.

My answer to that is too low. While in the Army, out in FT. Bliss and White Sands training areas, I had those suckers fly over me at at about 300 ft. doing supersonic speeds. Scary as hell and the pain was unbearable.

Speaking of flying too low... this guy is insane. Watch the "tourist fly-by" at about 2:40 then watch how close he is to the trees starting at about 3:40. What a rush!

GLDS Rides 2013

Anyone know when the GLDS rides start up this year? The site isn't updated. Wondering if there will be a Tennessee ride to get things started early.

Good riding with you Aaron. Thanks for the rally tour.
As to the shades of brown, I say all of them. Thanks to everyone that made this ride happen, and to all that went along. The real question is, how much longer do you think that patch would have went beyond the 160 miles that it already did??

I too was amazed that a wheel so tweeked could be ridden on so long.
