What's your range on the stock tank?
Not sure on that one, The stock tank was replaced by the 3.9 gal. plastic tank not long after I bought the bike and that one goes on reserve around 120 miles depending on terrain and throttle usage.

Perfect timing for this RR. I'll be going to DV at the end of Feb and will also be starting from San Francisco. I'm taking all back roads and secondary highways, though. I've driven I5 enough and definitely dont want to do it on my XR650. Where'd you stay at Ridgecrest and how did you like Panamint Springs? Did you tent camp at PSR and do day trips? Or, did you camp out in the backcountry also? Can't wait to hear and see more pics of your trip.

Make sure if you have the stock tank you bring at least 2 extra gallons, I can get you a adv discount on bigger kolpin fuel packs.

water was weird, I really didnt drink the amount you should, and felt fine....Actually I mostly drank out of my 2 liter camelback everyday, so about 2 liter per day.
And then I drank a lot more beer and hot toddies...
Stovepipe has Jim Beam for sale.

Nice report! I was in the same area (South Pass to Saline Valley) just before you (12/26-12/29) and had a similar, but not as epic, experience with the snow.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=851956

I want to head back in the spring (after everything melts off) to do Hunter Mountain & Lippincott.

I read your RR, very nice too, I wanted to make it to the springs, but not enough time!
how far on saline rd is it after you pass hunter?
Get some TKC or 606 and ride back soon!
if you need gear, let me know!

Come back still pretty down from not making it over the north side to the racetrack, and seat at the bar at panamint springs, and who walks in?

So Im getting warm, and ....
Next thing I know Spafxr Jim and Cathy come in and sit next to me!

they rode out here, and are staying 2 nights, I took his favorite spot, well it is the best spot there, camp27.

Chat about past rides, Benjava, and hang by the campfire, thanks guys, you cheered me up real good that night.

Other awesome camp mates…

These guys were amazing desert people,



real nice ,and also had a TW to ride around, they invited me to Saline Springs, but I still wanted to get around to the moving rocks at the playa.

Jetboil Flash

how do you like the Jetboil Flash?

I ask because I bought the original Jetboil for snow camping and it refused to light at altitude in the snow
